All the un-saved are considered spiritually dead. This verse from the Prodigal Son also seem to reinforce that.
Although it is used most of the time for a backslider, I have often questioned the reality, that this proverb represents the backslidden. Or just the wayward soul of the unsaved.

Lu:15:32: It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
