Adam and Eve were created perfect morally, spiritually, and physically. They were perfect according to the standard set by their Creator. Because of disobedience, they did not measure up to this standard and therefore lost perfection for themselves and their offspring. Thus it was through Adam that sin, imperfection, and death were passed on to humankind. (Rom. 5:12)
It means we all get sick and die because Adam the first man passed on to us only what he had when he sinned against God. That is sickness and death. Genesis 3:3
John 8:24 24I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am he, you will indeed die in your sins."

What does Romans 5:12 mean? Death through sin?Romans 5;12 says, "Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—"
This is Paul's teaching not that of Jesus or Genesis.
Death did not enter our world through sin. It was by design. We were not created immortal. According to Genesis man did not attain immortality. It says that man was stopped from eating from the tree of everlasting life.
Sorry, there is no death.
Nothing is ever waisted.
The separation of all men from God through the sin of Adam---"original sin.".
Paul outlined the matter, starting with this point in Rom 5:12. We are in a position to understand this because God had a record made of how human life began. God created two humans, Adam and Eve. The creator is perfect, and so were those first humans, our ancestors. God gave them but one limiting directive and informed them that disobeying that law would bring death. Gen 2:17 "for in the day that thou eatest thou shalt die" (ASV) Today we all die as evidence.
