THE EXACT SAME “ALL MEN”
The first passage that really got my attention that God would be victorious in bringing His entire creation back to Himself was Romans 5:18:
“Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of One the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”
I noticed that the same “all men” upon whom judgment came were the EXACT SAME “all men” upon whom the free gift came. The first was produced by Adam, the second by Jesus Christ. The result of the first was “condemnation,” and the result of the second was “justification.”
What more could Paul say to reveal such an ultimate victory?
