|Luke 3:6||1 John 4:14|
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.
|1 Corinthians 15:22|
22 For as in Adam all are dead [to the life of God], even so in Christ, shall all be made alive.
|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.]
