STATE OF THE DEAD SIMPLIFIED
SOUL SLEEP - Dead until the Resurrection
1) The 2 Pillars of the State of the Dead1a) Man is Mortal
Shall mortal man be more just than God?
1b) ONLY God has Immortality
Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see:
1 Timothy 6:16
2) Eternal Life via ACCESS to the Tree of Life (hence NO Immortality of the Soul)2a) In the Beginning
....the tree of life also in the midst of the garden,...
And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:Genesis 2:9/3:22
2b) Access to the Tree of Life in the End
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.Revelation 22:14
3) First Lie Ever Told on Earth
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:Genesis 3:4
Q: WHY do many Christians hold today to the immortality of the soul-thereby repeating the LIE Lucifer (through the serpent) told Eve?
