This means we are ALL born spiritually dead. Adam and Eve would have lived forever had they not sinned. This is why each person MUST be born-again!
The term “born-again” means “being born for the second time.” There is the physical birth and then there is the spiritual birth. We are born spiritually dead into this world without God. We are all born with a fallen nature, a natural tendency to sin.
I don't believe in this idea expressed by Paul was ever meant to be taken so literally. Jesus said things that contradict him. nor was he Jesus. I believe in the things you are talking about by in a different way, that do not seem so literal and dogmatic
