I have to agree with ChristGuard here. The Greek does say "all" or "every." Universalism states that all are saved, regardless of their choices. Thus, Jesus' sacrifice paid for the sins of all, Muslim, Jew, Hindu and even atheists. Rather, I would suggest that the free gift of grace has been offered to all people, but they have to accept Jesus to receive that gift. I use a similar analogy as ChristGuard except I use a ticket rather than money (because of the other values which are ascribed to money) as an analogy to grace.Why can it no be that: Christ died so that all men everywhere could have salvation. Christ did not die so that all men everywhere would have salvation.?
Jesus has purchased a ticket (grace) for you. Do you accept the ticket and redeem it for entry, or do you reject the ticket.
