It is quite true that, had God known that there would be none of His creation who loved the truth, creation of the cosmos and the crucifixion would have been pointless. But the existence of some who would love the truth made necessary that creation, with its ample opportunity for rebellion against God. And because all would rebel, all would have to have their rebellion accounted for, with not one claiming impunity. So the Christ had to die for all, though for the sake of only those who would treat that death as their salvation.


HELL is where the unrepentant account for their rebellion, where they spend eternity under the wrath of God. IF CHRIST DIED FOR THESE SAME PERSONS, His death was in vain inasmuch as they still end up in hell for their rebellion against God. If Christ died for all, he died for the sake of all. To say otherwise is illogical. However, if He did indeed die for all, then all must be saved, or else His death was in vain to the extent that anyone ends up in hell.

How many does God think it worth dying for? He said that Sodom would not be destroyed if just ten righteous people were to be found in it- and who knows what he would have said if Abe had had the nerve to bid lower. Yet He also said that Abraham's descendants would be as as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore (though I can't see too many of them coming from this generation). So who is to say that Jesus' death was in vain?

xyz,
I read your posts and the patient answers you are being given and I can only say: Stop the craziness! What you post makes no sense and is not even remotely biblical. You post these comments as if they are fact and don't seem willing to understand what everyone is trying to tell you,. It seems to me too much time has been spent casting pearls....
If you were sincerely seeking the truth, it would be evident but you seem to be playing a game.

The Apostle Paul addressed that very question in his letter to the Galatians. Chapter two verse twenty one tells us "If righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain." So we know that if a person thinks he can be saved by works of the law then to him Christ's death is in vain.

Christ did not die in vain

I am not saying that Jesus' death was in vain. You're saying that Jesus' death does not save the unrepentant because of their unrepentance; the unrepentant nullify Jesus' death for themselves. If that is the case, then Jesus died in vain for those who are unrepentant, because His death does not save them. That is the logical implication of all that you've been saying.

Copying and pasting what you've previously said is not a reply. It is intellectual sloth. Keep this up, and you won't be here long. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bif.gif" alt="" />

xyz,

I must confess I haven't read every reply in this (now very long) thread but since you been debating the question "for whom did Christ die" I'd like to ask you which of the following statements do you believe to be true?


1. Christ died for some of the sins of all men.

2. Christ died for all the sins of some men.

3. Christ died for all the sins of all men.

Please provide Scripture texts which support your view.

Why not you? Everyone seems confused by your replies and it would be good for us to know where you stand in regards to this matter. If you chose not to reply then it becomes obvious that you are disingenuos and further communication would be fruitless.

So again I ask.... which of the following statements do you believe to be true?


1. Christ died for some of the sins of all men.

2. Christ died for all the sins of some men.

3. Christ died for all the sins of all men.

Please provide Scripture texts which support your view.

I made this reply the first time.

It appears everyone in this thread who has replied to you has experienced frustration with your responses. We're not all idiots, XYZ. Some lucidity on your part would be appreciated, but if you're not willing to make yourself clear or to provide legitimate responses to our questions & comments, you will be banned.
