“How Do We Overcome Death?” Liahona, February 2020
The Fall of Adam and Eve introduced physical and spiritual death to the world (see 2 Nephi 9:6).
At the end of our mortal life, we experience the “death of the body,” or the separation of the spirit from the body (see 2 Nephi 9:4–7, 10).
Sin, the “death of the spirit,” separates us from God (see 2 Nephi 9:8–10).
Christ’s Atonement overcomes physical and spiritual death so we can reenter God’s presence (see 2 Nephi 9:11–12, 21–23). After the Resurrection, our spirits and bodies will be reunited. To be worthy of eternal life, we must have faith in God, repent of our sins, and faithfully live the gospel.
