Atheist Uses "Christian" Teaching To Target The Bible
Taking a question they apparently found on a "Christian" web site, an atheist wrote to ask us: If the punishment for eating from the tree was that Adam and Eve would physically die, why didn’t they physically die? The answer is, because that's not what the Bible says. Genesis 2:17 says:. “for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” It does not say they will **physically** die.
Adam did immediately die. It's called the second death, separation from God. The first death is physical death... and Adam also began to die physically... but that would take hundreds of years.
