Paul says, “if one died for the sake of all, all died.”
This, I think, is a very spiritual concept.
One often missed by believers and preachers of the baptists, world wide church of God, Mormons, etc.
Here, I point out to you the OBJECTIVE nature of God’s work on the cross.
It is not a SUBJECTIVE MATTER.
If I say to you, “If you believe the moon is made of cheese, then it will be made of cheese.” — That is subjectivity.
But, if the moon really is made of cheese, and you “believe” the truth… that is an objective matter.
So… “if one died for the sake of all, all died.”
“if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him” — says Paul.
So, Christ did die for the sake of all. Objectively!!!
No one has to “believe” it to be true, to be true. It’s objectively true — He died for the sake of all.
So… objectively speaking…
“if we died with him, (and we did), we shall also live with Him.
This is a spiritual concept.
It goes far beyond our personal experience and our subjective “beliefs” and feelings about God’s work in the cross of Christ.
We died with Him… all of us… ’cause He died for the sake of all. And we shall live with Him… big thought… we’ll have to trust God about exactly how He’s going to pull this off.
and… Romans 6:7 For anyone who has died has been justified from sin.
