"The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law." - 1 Corinthians 15:56
The Law of Sin and Death is, essentially, the doctrine of sin. The question is: what is sin? Where did sin come from? Is there an end to sin, or will sin exist even in heaven or in eternal life?
In order to answer these questions and really establish a foundation for teaching the doctrine of sin, we must also look to the doctrine of humanity.
What you must understand is that the only thing that makes logical sense is that humanity must have a divine origin. It is the only way to explain the vast complexity of what makes us human beings -- who are infinitely more intricate and detailed than even the very universe we live in.
I mentioned this in the first lesson within our series, but it merits worth mentioning again. It is important to understand that we are God’s highest form of creation (Consider reading Psalm 139:14).
