Why we preach to dead people

Speaking of those dead in the spirit through sin, Peter explained why we preach to them,

“For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit” (1 Peter 4:6).

What they have done in the flesh by the influence of man, God judges through the preaching of the Gospel, but that preaching also shows the dead how they can live in God by means of following the Spirit.

Therefore, keep reading the Bible that you might live, and keep seeking to teach others that they might live.
