I copied this from the "Concise Evangelical Dictionary of Theology". It in a sense says the same thing I did.

In the NT, which focuses on a crucified and resurrected Lord, death is a power dominating the present life of the individual, not just something that happens at the end of life. People live in separation from God, a Spiritual Death; estrangement from God is the common factor in all natural human life (life according to the flesh, Romans 8:6 - 1 John 3:14). Sin and its resulting death lives within the person despite Gods law (Rom. 7:9 - 1 Cor. 15:56 - James 1:5)

It goes on to explain the source of sin, which we all know so I did not copy all that.
