Did Jesus Die For All

First John 2:2,"And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world." Does this verse mean that the Lord Jesus Christ paid for all people's sins, even those who will not accept that payment?

I will tell you what the scripture means. It is for all past, present, and for all who shall hereafter come to God through Jesus Christ. The extent and intent of the Mediators death reach to all tribes, nations, and countries. These scriptures referring to the whole world does not mean all people will be saved. Most won't be saved because people loves sin more than righteousness, lovers of themselves more than lovers of God. And that is just the way it is!

Jesus came & died for all sinners.
---Lisa on 7/23/07

yes just because someone is foolish enough
not to except the free gift that jesus offers doesn't mean that some day if they chose to they can't. but james warns us that we don't no what will be on the morrow

"It's up to us to receive it or not."

Jn 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him..

Jesus doesn't seem to think it is up to us.
---a_servant on 7/21/07

Jesus has done the work. It's up to us to receive it or not.
---aj7477 on 7/21/07

Duanne is right. Jesus died for ALL mankind. Although some will not accept, the percentage of it that would not be wasted because of those who accept makes it worth it. The compromise is necessary.
---OK on 7/20/07

Jesus' death is sufficient "payment" for the world, however . . .

Mt 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Jn 18:9 ..Of them which you gave me have I lost none.

Jn 8:44 You are of your father the devil

Many people are not Christ's.
---a_servant on 7/20/07

YES, Jesus died for all mankind...
---duane on 7/20/07

Yes He paid for all. No those who do not accept & acknowledge that payment are debtor to the law & will die as a result. "I AM sought of them that asked not for me, I AM found of them that sought me not. I said, Behold Me, unto a nation that was not called by my name. I have spread out my hands all the day long unto a rebellious people, which walks in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts." Those who refuse His Grace "They shall be as though they had not been".

My last post to you didnt make it. Maybe the moderators thought that I said something I shouldent have said. Either way, thanks for the advice, God bless brother.
---Billy on 6/22/07

Catherine, if that is the scripture you quoted then the statement you said before
"save those who believes the foolish message of the cross." must of been sarcasm right? The passage says those who perish see Calvalry as foolishness. It doesn't mean Calvary is foolishess. Truly I don't believe you think the Cross is foolishness so I assumed you were using sarcasm. That's why I said someone must not know you very well if they think you meant it was foolishness(you meant something else).
---Matthewm on 6/22/07

I was a little offended when you said I don't know you that well. The reason I said what i said to Billy is because I know you don't think Jesus' death on the Cross is foolishness. I was trying to let Billy know that wasn't what you meant. You probably meant to others it is foolishness(what I look at as sarcasm).
---Matthew on 6/22/07


If Catherine made a misprint this would be the second or third time shes done it. Shes made that statement before. I dont see sarcasm either. I believe that she is misquoting the scripture. If this is the case, even I would be grateful for someone pointing it out to me. God bless.
---Billy on 6/22/07

Well, Billy amd Matthew you do not know catherine not even a little. That scripture is scripture..
---catherine on 6/22/07

Billy if you knew Catherine, even a little, you would know she either made a misprint or was being sarcastic.
---Matthew on 6/22/07


1Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

If you think that the message of the cross is foolishness, are you saying that you are of them that perish? Gods people dont call the cross foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God, not foolishness. God bless

You need to study a little more. Is 1Cor 15:22 the only scripture that I gave you that you can try to explane. The all that die in Adam is everyone thats born in the flesh, the all that will be made alive in Christ is the same all that die in Adam.

The creature itself will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God "Rom 8:21". The groanings of the prisoners that are appointed to death will be set free "Psa 102:18-20, Rom 8:21-22". Your looking at scripture by the teachings of men, Let God be your guide Rebecca, God bless.
---Billy on 6/21/07

Billy; those verses don't contredict eachother. The people that die in Christ shall live with Christ forevermore. Those that die without Christ won't be with him. For Example 1 Cor 15:22, it says for as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. All means the ones that endure til the end with Christ. Everyone will confess that Jesus is Lord, but that doesn't mean that they will be in heaven. In hell is where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched. Mk 9:46-50. You need to study.

---JIM on 6/21/07

There is no universal Salvation. Jesus died for His people's sins. God has never intended to save the world. Heaven is for holy people, only. People are becoming more wicked everyday. God decided before the creation of the world to only save those who believes the foolish message of the cross. Most don't. And after you get saved you must obey God and you must live the life. Does this sound like everyone is going to be saved? Dream on!
---catherine on 6/20/07

John, I do admit that Christ's sacrafice is sufficient to pay the debt of everyone if everyone believed, but not all believed so their payment has not been paid for. If Christ had paid the payment for everyone, then everyone would not owe anything so everyone would be counted as have been made righteous with God through Christ' righteousness, there would be no hell, and everyone would be saved as Billy says, but Hell is very much real.

,billy, I have no shame, nor are you able to give me any shame. The truth is all whom are outside of Christ are shamed and also condemned. Most people are of Satan whom is their father, and they are not of Christ. And your words also bear witness that you also are not yet of Christ, for if you were of Christ then you would receive my words and the words of the saints.

Yes Christ paid the debt for our sins so that he could live his life through us, and that sin can be overcome and judged in our life, through Christ. Dont think that our sins wont go unpunished. If God wont count our sins against us, then there is no need for God to chasen his children, God does judge and chasen his children. Gods judgments will do the same in the lake of fire. God bless

Mark. As you said, Christ's sacrifice was sufficient payment for all sin of all people. So even you have stated that he died for all the world. When I was little, our city paid the bill for all males to have a haircut. When it was all over there were still guys with long hair. Not everyone wanted to go to the barber even though it was paid.
Same as Jesus, paid for everyone, but not everyone will come.
---john on 6/17/07

If Christ died for all mankind, then all of mankind debt is paid for. And all will come to Christ, and no one will be going to hell since God is just and would not count it against them. Since we know not all come to Christ, the message is not talking about all mankind. Only the one's that believe by faith or the recipients of God's sacrafice. Christ Sacrafice is sufficient to take care of all mankind, but not all will believe.

For we read in chapter 1:1-4 "That which was from the beginning, which "we" have heard, which "we" have seen with our eyes, which "we" have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of Life-the life was manifested, and "we" have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life (Jesus Christ)

Absolutely NO! This scripture is referring to past, present,and future, Believers. Now people need to realize that Jesus knew before the world was created who would be chosen. There are alots of Ifs and Butts to Salvation. If you obey my Commandments is one. If you endure to the end is another one. I do not know where people ever got the idea that God is going to save everybody. Only a few will find the narrow road that leads to heaven. is also a good one. False preachers has got to go.

Jesus died and paid the penalty for all mankind, but it is all dependent upon whether or not you accept what Christ did for you on that Cross. Only those who believe on Jesus Christ and His death, burial and resurrection and confess it with their mouth witll be saved. Jesus is the only door there is that will open a way to heaven.

---Billy on 6/14/07

Absolutely NO, NO! Believers have their sins. There are some who, though they really sin, yet in comparison with others, are said not to sin. This gives us Believers support. We, Believers, have an advocate. It is His Person Jesus Christ. This Salvation is for all>>>Who shall come to God through JESUS CHRIST.
---catherine on 6/14/07

.billy, but you are not speaking the truth. There is no cleansing in hell, on the contrary it is eternal punishment and torment for their sins, and once a person is sent there there is never ever any escape. God gives man an average lifespan of 70 years to repent and live for him, but if a soul refuses and dies in their sins they are forever damned- not cleansed nor purged, but completely condemned for eternity.
---Eloy on 6/14/07

.billy, Don't be sorry, just repent and get right with Jesus. BTW, I do not interpret scripture, instead I literally translate the scripture word for word. There are much too many interpretations flying around already, and people need to discard all of them and get back to the literal Word of God. Clean house, dump all your books, and dig into the pure unadulterated Word of God. Feed on the Holy Bible, enrich your soul, and get to know the Lord from his words, and not from someone elses words.

Mt 1:21 ...JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Jesus' death was legally sufficient to pay for all sins from every man, woman & child ever born. Yet, His assigned task was to save those chosen and elected of God.

.billy, I translate the original scriptures into English, and eternal damnation is truth and written in both testaments, in the Hebrew and in the Greek. But if you desire to believe that sinners enter into heaven, then you are sorely deluded. God will not allow any sin into heaven, else heaven become violence as is the wicked upon the earth. Wake up billy! There's consequences for sin, it is not Paradise, and be sure your sin will find you out.
---Eloy on 6/12/07

Sorry Eloy, but your interpretation of scripture is incorrect. You are still believing that our English Bibles are correctly translated from the original Greek and Hebrew. As long as you put your trust in these translations, you will never see the truth in scripture. If your heart cannot be changed to see these truths, this is where God has you to be in His sovereign plan. God bless.

---Billy on 6/11/07

No. Christ died "for all" in the sense of "no repecter of persons", meaning, "the rich and the poor, the Jew and the Greek, the man and the women, he sacrificed himself for all flesh"; but not all flesh will receive him, therefore his sacrifice is 100% worthless to any soul which refuses his sacrifice for them. And only those whom accept his atoning sacrifice will obtain all the unspeakable benefits which come with his sacrifice.

Yes Jesus paid the price for all sins, including those that dont serve him. Christianity will say that one must ask for there sins to be forgiven before Jesus can propitiate there sins, but this isnt what this scripture says.

This is a concept that is no longer popular within the church, and some have gone so far as to eliminate the concept from their basic theology.

Do a search on the word "world." It is generally used to refer to all kinds of people (Jews and Gentiles).

Yes, it directly shows that Jesus DID pay for all people's sins, even those who won't accept that payment. Let me reword that: Jesus granted access to God's kingdom to all sinners, by His costly sacrifice, including those who wouldn't come in and take advantage of it. Those who come in are Christ's reward, thos who don't are his lost sheep...but still the sacrifice is worth it for the millions who do come in.
