I was reading Proverbs yesterday and a very simple proof became apparent by cross-linking two different scriptures. It shows there is a literal
connection between righteousness and life; and, conversely, between wickedness and death.
Follow on brethren,
"The activity of the righteous
one results in life
; the produce of the wicked
one results in sin
therefore => righteousness:life as wickedness:sin
One more step, sin: ? (I'd put x instead of ? but it made it look like a trig problem!
"For the wages sin
pays is death
, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord."
So, that completes it: sin:death
Nothing too elaborate, just sound simple reasoning INI wanted to share with those interested.
