Shakespeare said you (and I) owe God or nature a death. Our life is something that has to be paid for with our death. In fact, death gives life meaning. If I lived forever, time wouldn't be precious. Neither would people. I wouldn't work. I wouldn't read books and natter on about them. Or go to movies or be fascinated by art, travel, nature, food, sex, love, pets.
cycle of life, I ask this question all the time because my daddy died so did my grandmother. I stared to blame God but then I realized everyone has their time and when that time comes you can't do anything about it. just know you'll be in God's hands <3
Our life on earth will determine our eternal fate,this life is only a drop in the bucket compared to our eternal life in heaven,your here to learn from your mistakes,and do what is right in God's eyes,be a leader not a follower.
Because god created Adam and Eve, Adam and Eve ate the wrong fruit tree. Adam and Eve had Cane and Abel before they They died. Then It's was just child after child. So we all sin and dye cause that's what Adam and Eve did. And we have Adam an Eve's DNA.
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. (Genesis 2:17 KJV)===============================Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (Romans 5:12 KJV)===============================Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death. (James 1:14, 15 NLT). (((((Sin is the cause of death it leads to eternal separation from God and is the reason for physical death as well. Spiritual death and physical death.))))) =================For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 KJV)
Sin brought death into the world. Man was meant to live forever but because man sinned and rebelled against God we die. But for those who receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior although they die they will be resurrected to eternal life just like Jesus was.

Sickness, old age, and death were never God's purpose for humankind. They only entered the equation because of Adam and Eve's sin. (See Romans 5:12, quoted above). However, Isaiah 33:24 and Revelation 21:4 show that God intends to do away with sickness, death, and all causes of pain and suffering. Then we will be able to live life as God originally purposed.
At Romans 5:12 brings out, “That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” We the first humans sinned, they passed on imperfection.
Interesting thought about the 200 yr old person: back in Methuselah's day , ( who lived 900 years)people lived to be 300+. Now, the skull gets thicker and the forehead gets broader and more protruded as we age. So if we all aged like that.... We would look like what scientists call : Neanderthal! The scientists are starting to realize That these bones are just aged man in the Biblecal age! Cool research huh!
Death is the result of sin. Romans 6:23 directly states, "For the wages of sin is death." Every person dies physically, because all have sinned (Romans 5:12). Following death is a time of reckoning: "It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). Thus, there is no reincarnation as taught in Eastern religions. Death entered the world with Adam's sin (Romans 5:12), as shown in the fact that Adam died (Genesis 5:5).
Romans 5:12 " When Adam sinned, sin entered the entire human race. His sin spread death throughout the entire human race. His sin spread death throughout all the world, so everything began to GROW OLD and die, for all sinned." (Living Bible). God did allow Adam, as he does us, the freedom to choose what he would do. Perfection did not rule out the exercise of free will to disobey. Adam chose to rebel against God, despite the warning that death would result.
The Bible makes it clear that God did not originally intend for humans to die. He created the first human pair Adam and Eve, placed them in an earthly paradise called Eden, and instructed them to have children and extend their Paradise home earth wide. They would die only if they disobeyed his instructions. (Genesis 1:28; 2:15-17) However, Adam and Eve disobeyed God's law and were made to pay the consequences. (Genesis 3:19) Death is an absence of life. (Romans 6:23) Showing that death is a state of total unconsciousness, (Ecclesiastes 9:5) When a person dies, his thoughts do perish.(Psalm 146:3, 4) Since only Adam and Eve disobeyed that command in Eden, we all die because all of us were born after Adam’s disobedience, and so we all inherited sin and death from him. (Romans 5:12) But there is hope for mankind.
It all comes from the original sin. God had warned adam and eve about the consequences of eating from the tree that did not belong to them, by disobeying they gave to understand they knew more than god and did not want to be submissive. The consequences being imperfection and eventually death. However Jesus's ransom helped in the way that a perfect life was given for the perfect lives lost, which is why we now have the hope of everlasting life and of Rev. 21:4 the promise of death being no more. and our hope of seeing our gone loved ones again
Because Jehovah god had told Adam and Eve to not eat from the tree that was in the middle of the Garden of Eden.(Genesis 2:16, 17) Adam and Eve could have been alive today, but they died because they chose to disobey God and thus sinned. So the reason that we die is that Adam’s sinful condition as well as death was passed on to all of his descendants. (Romans 5:12)
