Colossians 1:20

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, to reconcile by him, all things to himself; by him, I say, whether they are things on earth, or things in heaven.3 ["And when all things are subdued to him, then will the Son himself also be subject to him [God] who put all things under him, that God [the Father] may be all in all." 1 Cor 15:28. All things include all men and women.]

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 [(Mark! All men, not just all believers). All men are saved from death by Jesus. Jesus has tasted death for every man, Heb 2:9, not just "believers." 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 eternal life. Rom 5:18. Jesus died so all persons will be reconciled with God; but each person must first experience the painful removal of sin because reconciliation can only occur between pure objects; for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness, and what communion has light with darkness? 2 Cor 6:14.]

 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 [Jesus died so all persons will be reconciled with God; but each person must first experience the painful removal of sin because reconciliation can only occur between pure objects; for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness, and what communion has light with darkness? 2 Cor 6:14. All will be reconciled to God: the few who are crucified, purified, and perfected while on earth with great reward; and the many who are purified in Hell. "And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, to reconcile by him [Jesus], all things to himself [the Father]; by him [Jesus], I say, whether they are things on earth, or things in heaven." Col 1:20. "We trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe." 1 Tim 4:10]
