Adam did die…

Some also misapply Gen. 2:17 to Adam, saying that he died “the day” he sinned because he lived less than a thousand years (see 5:5). But even if Adam had lived to 1,001 years, Gen. 2:17 would still be true: Adam did die the very day he chose to disobey God—he died spiritually that instant.

Genesis 2:17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die

One Response to Adam did die…

  1. Wanda Miller says:

    couldnt you also say that he physically died that instant just as a flower dies when it is cut although the flower may appear to be alive for several days? by his disobedience, he was cut off from God as the flower is cut off from its source of life. Physical death started manifesting in his body right away through aging, weakness, etc. That is how I have always looked at it, but I am not an expert by any means.
