Life or Death?

Sin lead to (spiritual) death. "For the wages of sin is death..." Rom.6: 23 (NKJV). This death in itself means 'separation from God', for God cannot stand sin... When we sin, God is displeased as we get (temporarily) separated from Him. It could be temporal, yet so permanent, depending on the choice we make; either to have life (by repentance) or remaining in death (by refusing to come to repentance)...
When a person is a slave of sin, he is free in regards to righteousness.
Oh yes, he doesn't have to abide by the 'rules' of God which seems irrational or impossible to keep. He is at liberty to live as he wills; but know this, soon enough that 'freedom' leads to destruction and death... When such a one is not under the covering of life, which is found only in Jesus (by living in obedience to His Word, and keeping such sinful natures buried at baptism), then he is exposed to the clutching claws of death. Jesus' resurrection gave Him dominion over death...
If you are not with Him in this dominion over death, then indeed death will have power over you...
