In Genesis 5:1 the presence of God’s image in people is reaffirmed. Despite the failure of Adam and Eve (Chp 3) and then the growth of sin in (Chp 4) God has not abandoned the world. Even though God is still committed to the human race death is a present reality. Chapter 5 says 8 times that various people “died”. We are brought face to the face that when Adam and Eve sinned death entered the world and this sentence of death continues to hang over us. Paul teaches us 1 Corinthians 15:26 that the last enemy is death. I have just read an amazing testimony from Bishop Ivan Lee as he faces death. He has pancreatic cancer and is currently in remission. As a Christian we know that God can heal but our greatest hope is that death has been conquered through Jesus.
