That is an assumptiondead is dead not alive like you believe. thats on you promoting a false teaching and changing the meaning of dead to being able to respond. Dead means unable to respond.
its unbelievable that you refuse to see that basic truth and avoid it like the plague.
The prodigal was dead he was able to return the his Father
The church at Sardis was dead but they are toild to repent
we read in scripture men receive life upon faith
If they need to receive life then they were dead
The christian dead to sin yet still sins
Sorry you do not present biblical truth
You have presented your assumption
which is contradicted by scripture
