Death Came Through Adam But Life Comes Through Christ

11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We have now received this reconciliation through Him. 12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned. 13 In fact, sin was in the world before the law, but sin is not charged to a person’s account when there is no law.
