“Indeed! All lives are mine – the life of the father as well as the life of the son is mine. The one who sins will die.”
God gave man life, breathing into him at creation. All belong to him, and he will judge all. No one can assume that right. God knows what each one deserves.
How we blame others for our sins! v. 3. But we will answer for what we have done. God cannot be deceived by our games.
