|1 John 2:2|
2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the whole world. [Notice! John has said Christ is the atoning sacrifice not only for ours, (the early Christians), but he is the atoning sacrifice for the whole world. From the Word of the Lord within: "If one man's sin can curse the whole human race, then how much more just is it for one man's righteousness to pay for the sins of the whole world? Sounds logical doesn't it? HE IS LOGICAL.]
|1 Timothy 4:9-10|
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.
10 Therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.2
18 Therefore because the disobedience of one man led all men to condemnation; even so one man's act of righteousness exculpates (pronounces not guilty of offences) all men to right standing with God and righteousness of life.3 [Note! If you take this scripture out of context with the rest of the Bible's exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation and not being banned from heaven, you could erroneously conclude that all men on the earth, of all religions, or no religion, are in right standing with God and righteousness of life. Realize, this kind of mistake is what the doctrines of modern Christianity are built upon — sand. All will occur, but not all in this life.]
32 For God has sealed them all [men] in disobedience, that he might show mercy on all [men].2
|John 1:29 |
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Look, there is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.
