ALL means ALL

All means ALL – not just some, not mearly many, not hardly any, not most and not a handful…it means ALL – even in the Greek it means ALL. “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from ALL sin”. (1 John 1:7) There is no sin, that the blood of Christ will not wash away. Though our sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, and, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Jesus can save the chief of sinners. (1 Tim. 1:15) He has THE WILL, no less than the power, therefore, all men will be saved by his grace.

Tell me – does the following make any sense at all?

God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he might have mercy on some of them

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall some be made alive

For in Christ, all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself some things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross

Then, as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for some men.

Of course not – becaseu ALL does not mean some, or many, or a few, or a handful – it means ALL

I Corinthians 15:22. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.

Colossians 1:20. 19 For in him [Christ] all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Romans 5:18 : 18 Then as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men.

Romans 11:32: For God has imprisoned all in disobedience so that he may be merciful to all.

  1. Well, well, let there be light already…yes Greg, ALL means ALL – for if ALL were made to be sin by the offense of ONE, then by the OBEDIENCE OF ONE, ALL WERE MADE RIGHTEOUS. As Paul said, not all have this knowledge, I say this to their shame…

    This of course does not equate to all are made right – that is a process of conversion and transformation – but it begins with the revelation of the imputation of the righteousness of God in Christ as being NOT OF YOUR OWN OATHS OR EFFORTS but the free gifted gift of God in Christ, as He made of Himself a sacrifice for all. Stay your hand Abraham, I WILL PROVIDE MYSELF A SACRIFICE!

    Now, as to hell…and Circe…and all the other religious traditions which render the Word of God of NO EFFECT and which prevent the manifestation thereof in the flesh, and by which the Pharisees tie up heavy burdens of guilt and shame to deny them entry to the rest of faith which is the peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Spirit, to wit, the kingdom [and kin(g)ship] of God and Christ.

    And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that “make peace” (reckon, assay and manifest reconciliation between God and Man).

    And your syntax is no better Greg – slow down or poof read (sic).


  2. To this signpost,

    All means all?
    And everything means everything?
    So then,
    10 Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.(Ecclesiastes 6)

    Or is that, ‘all’ has already been decided?
    Perhaps it is whatever?
    Whatever exists,?
    Whatever,can be all,and all can, very well be everything.

    Did he, the Christ die for all that were to be reconciled to him in the future?

  3. You missed some out Greg

    John 12:32

    And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw some people to myself.

    Ephesians 4:6

    one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of some, who is over some and through some and in some.

  4. My new John 12:32 and Ephesians 4:6 verses make a heck of a lot more sense in Calvinist and Evangelical Bibles than the original authors who got it wrong.

    Glad I can help out.

  5. Bones,
    The only thing that you made, was a hell of a lot of graffiti upon the literal translation of the Holy bible.

  6. Thanks.

    Just trying to make the Bible fit in with your theology.

    God is only in some people not all as Paul blatantly got wrong.

    And clearly Jesus won’t draw all people to Him.

    Only the elect.

  7. Jesus will make all stand before Him – He is our uprightness, our strength, without Him we may do NOTHING. The function of the elect is not to be saved but to witness salvation, to proclaim it, to manifestly declare and show forth with signs and wonders attesting, to declare the Power of God who is the good news by putting on Christ, and by the Word of God becoming manifest in and on them for a WITNESS – the Word inhabiting or coming in the flesh.

    In the last days, God will increase the company of the elect – He will turn up the Power and the authority thereby to counter the rise of beastly antichrist demonic forces.

    That it was (all?) decided long ago, being the nature and inclination of Man, is not predestination per se in that what everyone would do was predicted for them personally, but rather more that God knows the beginning from the end, and the end from the beginning, and that Man is by nature PREDICTABLE. What Man is was a determined long ago and cannot be changed, only transformed, so there is no point arguing with God who determines who is fit for and applied to whatever of His purposes he sees fit. I believe that this is what the writer of Ecclesiastes was getting at, rather than what Calvinists construe thereby.

    For we are works of grace, created in Christ, before designated that we should walk thereby – by grace – by faith – and not by sight or sense. This prodigal prison planet is our primary school, if you will, and we are all children of the same God, who does not intend that any should be lost, and whose intention is equivalent to action and to consummation.

    The writer of Ecclesiastes also noted that when a man dies, his body returns to the earth and his spirit to Him who gave it. This is where is all goes pear-shaped for the judgmental, in that they do not realize that much of the time their obsession is the flesh and what it is and does and so they deny the inner life of Christ and focus on the crust, the husk, the outer man, which is dying, so their focus is death and their sense of worth derives from death rather than from Life.

    If you have the Mind of Christ then you see people and things as He is and does, from the perspective of being at the Right Hand of Majesty on High, He who would have ALL MEN to be saved and to come to the full and complete knowledge of the Truth. Until that separation of flesh and spirit becomes wholly real in yourself and your perception of others. you will confuse the two and judge according to appearances rather than righteousness.

  8. The writer of Ecclesiastes said what Man is was determined long ago (in his DNA) – and then along came the Serpent with a “better offer” saying “You shall be as Gods”…yeah, right! And still Man argues with God about God’s plans and purposes! Will we ever learn?

    I can see how a Calvinist (Cohenist) could misconstrue this. Calvin (Cohen) was a closet Cabbalist, so what would you expect apart from disinformation?

    Here is a biggy for you Greg – being “born again” is a Jewish con job to pander dispensationalism to honorary Jews (aka Christians), whereas being “born from above” is where you come from and return to…but in Christ there is no distinction, for ALL are ONE.

    And as for the Jesuit Pope, boy does that open up a whole can of worms…he says that he wants to bring poverty to the church…and he is well qualified, being the Dark Horse that he is…and he is grooming the world…Germanating it even…in a parody of the Great Commission…
