The world as we know is full of wickedness and evil
works. All men are guilty of committing sin in the
sight of God. Not that men
inherited Adam's sin, but everyone have learned to ignore and defy the
will of God.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Rom:3:23, KJV)
28.C1 What is God's standing law
The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall
the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be
put to death for his own sin. (Dt:24:16, KJV)
God's righteousness regarding sinners is manifested in His standing
law. Everyone shall be put to death for his own sin.
28.C2 How does God validate his
law on sinners?
"Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine; the soul who sins shall die.

The same verse in the New International Version for clarity:
"Far be it from you to do such a
thing -- to kill the righteous like the wicked , treating the
righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will
not the judge of all earth do right?"
God's divine justice requires that the righteous should not die as
God's standing Law on the sinners requires
that "everyman shall be put to death for his own sin.(Dt:24:16:)Thus,
all men having all sinned are condemned to
die the second death in the
lake of fire. But, God's divine justice
also requires that the righteous should not die as
the wicked. How
then can man be righteous in the sight of God and be saved to die the
second death despite his inherent weaknesses?
