But my post was part of the discussion centered on sin as the cause of death. If so, did Adam's sin bring death to all life forms and not just humans? Did anything die before
Did anything die before Adam sinned? Don't know, don't care.
Did Adam's sin bring death to all life forms? Don't know, don't care.
I do not believe that any other life form on this planet has the capability to commit a sin. Therefore, we are only discussing human beings IMHO. And no, I do not believe that if not for sin there would be no death. For humans or any other living entity. That which is alive will die, whether he/she/it has sinned or not.

For all of them, it started much as it will for you: a strangely persistent itch at the back of the head, a discomfort on the left side, a lump fingered in the shower. Something it became impossible to ignore.
Then came the trip to the doctor, the encouraging words from friends, the dropped voices and then the news, which – despite all the evidence – continues to surprise us all, to seem like an error, an appalling clerical mistake from Satan.
On Final Things
Tilly; I visited someone in palliative care today.
That must have been difficult, Mindful how did it go?
It was a good deed. A woman I didn't know; our daughters were friends before mine moved far away. She asked me to go to the hospital to visit.
It went very well, the woman was delighted to see me after I'd explained who I was. Tubes going into her neck.
I'm not upset, but contemplative. Because she said the tumour in her neck came suddenly. Started off as a cold. Symptoms we all get.
Sometimes you see death coming and sometimes it's a complete surprise, like those kids at the Florida high school yesterday. My dad died from a heart attack just a few days prior to his 47th birthday, if he knew he had any heart issues he never told us about it. So you never know when, but you do know that it is unavoidable. My advice: don't let relationships wither and die, at least make the effort from your end to mend things. Anger, hate, fear, revenge, envy, jealousy, etc., these things do not enrich your life; do not waste your time and energy on them. Instead, focus on what you can do even in a small way to help somebody else or put a smile of their face, and in so doing enrich your own life. Trust me, it works.
No you should not...you have died a million times before and you will die a million times again.
