I think this one pretty tough to break :)
By one man, death entered into the world. THAT one man was Adam the first.
Through one man death was overcome, and all who are in Christ receive life because of this one death.
The secret is in the language of the rest of the context; i.e., "if...in Christ..new creature." "We are baptized into Christ..." There is a procedure that puts us into the likeness of his death, qualified thereby to be in the likeness of his resurrection.[Rom 6]
The answer to the whole thing is to be in Christ. Live in Christ so that " I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God..." [Gal 2:20-21]
THIS is the logos of God; the concept of "Christ in me" so that I am no longer in charge, but have yielded myself to the fact of Christ living in me.[ Col 2:25-27]
Belonging to God as our creator is not sufficient to bring about our reconciliation. We must lose ourselves in Christ, BECAUSE we have already lost ourselves in sin. God was in Christ,
Christ is in us, so that ultimately, God will through Christ, be all in all.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the logos [word] of God; 26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you..." [Col 1:25-27]
