I am told my interpretation was wrong. What do you believe it means based on scripture?

Hebrews 9:27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Just as people die only once, and are then judged for their sins, Christ died only once for our sins. He took the punishment for the sins of everyone. But only those who eagerly wait for Him will receive salvation in heaven at His second appearances.
Christ's Second Coming is not to deal with sin again but to bring our final salvation.

"The soul that sinneth, it shall die."

So Adam (the carnal man's rep) sinned, and took us all down with him. We are now being judged.

Upon regeneration, we are called to put to death the carnal man:

"For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God."

That's probably not the direction you wanted this thread to go - sorry.

As long as this is your interpretation of this verse you are in the right direction

Well, to me it means just what it says. There are no do-overs. We have one life to live. We will die (unless Jesus returns first). Upon our death we will face judgement.

In context it goes on to show that Christ needed only die once, as he was the perfect sacrafice, and enter heaven once to be our intercessor. He doesn't keep doing it and doing it. One time is all he needed and likewise, one time is all we'll have.
