"Just as" Adam's sin had a universal effect, "so also" did the cross of Christ. This point reinforces our assurance that the cross is worthy of our trust. The message is clear -- Christ's cross completely cancels the results of Adam's sin.[/size][/b][/color] Paul states that in Romans 5:18 and then repeats it again in a slightly different way in Romans 5:19.
4WD... you are a master of spin.
To move this away from the KJV, which is such an offense to many.. I have Romans 5 here from the Aramaic Bible in plain English.
And I space the sentences for easier reading.
1Because we have been declared righteous, therefore, by faith, we shall have peace with God in Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, 2For in
him we have been brought close by faith to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3And not only in
this way, but we boast also in afflictions, for we know that affliction perfects patience in us, 4And patience, experience, and experience,
hope, 5But hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has come in, overflowing our hearts by The Spirit of Holiness who has
been given to us.
6But surely because of our weakness, at this time The Messiah has died for the sake of the wicked. 7For a man will hardly die for the
sake of the wicked*, however a man perhaps may dare to die for the sake of the good. 8Here God demonstrates his love for us,
because if when we were sinners, The Messiah died in our place, 9How much more therefore, would we all the more be justified now by
his blood and be saved from wrath by him? 10For if when we were enemies, God was reconciled with us in the death of his Son, how
much more therefore, in his reconciliation, shall we live all the more by his life? 11And not in this way only, but also we glory in God by
Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, by whom we have now received the reconciliation.
12For just as by the agency of one man, sin entered the universe, and by means of sin, death, in this way death passed by this sin*
unto all the children of men, because all of them have sinned. 13For until The Written Law, sin was in the universe, but it was not
accounted as sin, because there was no written law. 14But death reigned from Adam and until Moses, even over those who had not
sinned in the likeness of Adam's violation of the law, who was the image of him who was to come.
15But the fall was unlike the gift in this way: for if because of the fall of one the many died, much more, therefore, the grace of God and
the gift by The One Man Yeshua The Messiah shall superabound to the many. 16And the gift is not the same as the offense of the one,
for the judgment was from the one to pronouncing guilty verdicts, but the gift was from many sins to righteousness. 17For if because of
the offense of one, death reigned, all the more, those who receive an abundance of favor and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by the agency of The One, Yeshua The Messiah
. (Note: Those does not mean all.)
18In like manner therefore, because of the offense of the one there was a guilty verdict to all the children of men, in the same way,
because of the righteousness of The One there shall be the victory for Life to all the children of men. 19For just as because of the
disobedience of one man the many became sinners
, so also because of the obedience of The One the
many become righteous
there was the introduction to The Written Law that sin would increase, and wherever sin increased, there grace superabounded. 21That
as sin reigned by death, in this way grace shall reign by righteousness to eternal life by Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah.
It does not uncategorically say all !!!!!!!!!!
