Path to Salvation: Three

Failure to turn away from sin leads to death, but God has an awesome gift for anyone who repents and acknowledges Him as Lord and Saviour...

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." -Romans 6:23 (NKJV)


I. death bringing, deadly

g2288. θάνατος thanatos; from 2348; (properly, an adjective used as a noun) death (literally or figuratively): — x deadly, (be...) death.

I. the death of the body

A. that separation (whether natural or violent) of the soul and the body by which the life on earth is ended
B. with the implied idea of future misery in hell
1. the power of death
C. since the nether world, the abode of the dead, was conceived as being very dark, it is equivalent to the region of thickest darkness i.e. figuratively, a region enveloped in the darkness of ignorance and sin

II. metaph., the loss of that life which alone is worthy of the name,

A. the misery of the soul arising from sin, which begins on earth but lasts and increases after the death of the body in hell

III. the miserable state of the wicked dead in hell

IV. in the widest sense, death comprising all the miseries arising from sin, as well physical death as the loss of a life consecrated to God and blessed in him on earth, to be followed by wretchedness in hell
