Based on Roman's 3:23, I'd have to state this is dealing with eternal life. It has already been told to us that we will all experience physical death as a result of Adam's sin, but if a person read's Roman' 3:23 in it's proper context, it is dealing with eternal life, not the physical death.

Cluny: "I believe the "death" referred to here is physical death."

You are adding to scripture. It only says:

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

It is clear from the Scripture that death from sin is presented in contradistinction to eternal life. Thus to imply that the spirit of the sinful survives death because "only the body dies" does injury to the Word.

I believe the "death" referred to here is physical death.

Ever since the fall of mankind, NOTHING works right. That's why we get sick and grow feeble. That's why there are wars That's why there is everything wrong.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

The wages of sin is death.....The soul who sins shall die. Rom 6:23>Eze 18:20

The answer to some issues, Jerry, can be "both". In this case it is more than both (c:

"But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives." (1 Timothy 5:6)

This is an example of how a person can be love-dead, while living selfishly. And the person is in deep torment, in sin, desperate to feel some pleasure in order to feel something nicer than one's misery and mess of sin.

So, now already a person can be sampling the torment of Satan's nasty selfish spirit (Ephesians 2:2) which the person will have in hell. The fire isn't the problem, then, but the sin nature which makes one selfish and able to suffer, which one already is sampling and could reap so much more, later >

Galatians 6:7-8
