  • Yes, I believe that Jesus died for EVERYONE because that is what it says in the Bible. Why would he leave ANYONE out? He wants ALL to be saved.
  • not, i don't even believe that he ws crucified. I believe God called Hazrat Isa (A.s) to Him without letting him persecuted!
  • if you are Christian you know the verse: John 3:16 - New King James Version For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
  • Yes, Jesus died for the sins of the world. Even my sins and yes, even your sins. Go to www.getsaved.com and hear all about it Love Karen Ann
  • Yes, but not everyone will take advantage of the offer.
  • Nope. I doubt he died for Fred and Olga's sins.
  • Yes. If he DIDN'T die for EVERYONE, then his whole ministry was pointless. Salvation has to be available for everybody to partake if they choose. If not...then it's a lie.
  • according to durkeim, religion is created an adapted to make people immortal (the afterlife) to forget their mortality and inevitable death. the superbowl can qualify as a religious expirience so if you want to believe that jesus died for everybody... then i would say yes if jesus descriminates, then there would be no hope for humanity right?
  • No. He didn't die for everyone anymore than you or I will die for everyone (which we will). If the story has some semblance of the truth, though, then I'm sure he died thinking that he was dying for all the Jews - which is a good intention for anyone to undertake (dying for the sake of others).
  • There is much debate and conflict based on this very issue. it seems people find it so hard to believe in GOD and Jesus even in the media and in movies we can watch things about demons, vampires and other mythical creatures hell, we can deal with them a little bit more too. but we wont even allow for the possiblity that GOD, Jesus, and the whole bible might be real. I believe we all are given a choice wether you believe it or not GOD gives us chances to have a relationship with him we just chose not to. We make things more complicated than it needs to be jesus just said if you believe with your heart and speak it with your mouth you are saved. Thats it! thats all we need to do. So for everyone who thinks that God just sends people to hell read the bible because god does not send folks to hell. they send themselves when they turn from GOD, do not blame God for your imperfections because he is the one who has love us, we are the ones who did not love him. But this is not about condemning anyone this is about telling the truth.
  • Yes and this is because the Bible says so
  • Yes, I believe this truth with all my heart. My convictions come from the revelations of God's Word. I will just quote two passages from Scriptures to support my clear understanding as follows: (1) "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23) (2) "Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God" (1Peter3:18)
  • No because there is no where in the Bible that says this.
  • Yup! He died for everyone. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2 The second question to go with this is, If Jesus died for everyone, will everyone be saved? The answer is no, not everyone will be saved. Jesus died for all, but one must also believe for it to be applied. (Acts 16:30-31)
  • Absolutely. Jesus is just about the best example of who a loving God is and what a loving God does.
  • 1 example..the Samaritan woman...HE gave HER to drink from the "LIVING WATER"..but better yet, do u think and read that HE only went around healing and teaching to Jews...catering only to them..NO<HE did NOT..and that should show u HE offered SALVATION /HIMSELF to ALL:)
  • No, I think religion was designed by man as a means of controlling the masses,
  • No. God is in total control. God is not in a box. After the fall of Adam our nature is: Seperated from God, born of flesh, evil in heart, corrupt and perverse, in bondage to sin, in bondage to satan, dead in sin, spiritually blind, depraved, change from, not in man alone. Why would anyone want anything to do with God with such a fallen nature? We need to be made alive in Christ before we can even believe God. God gives us the saving faith. If Christ died for everyone than why is not everyone saved? He died for His own. Jesus speaking: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:..John 6:44 Yes, also in the Bible Christ says: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. However, do not take this out of context. Christ is talking with Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. Jesus wanted Nicodemus to know that salvation was not only for the Jews but for the gentiles too. Also, in John 17:9 Jesus Christ is praying for His own. I pray for them: I pray NOT for the world, but for them which thou hast given me, for they are thine. Don't take the word of God out of context. After all the Bible is for believers not non-believers. 1Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
  • No. He never existed. http://jesuspuzzle.humanists.net/home.htm
  • No, I assume he was executed for being too outspoken. No doubt he was a very intelligent politician. The idea of making sacrifices (attonement) such as dying for people is a pagan thing. At the time the people of Rome were pagans. At the time of Christ there was a lot of conflict againt Jews. In the end Rome decided to appoint its own Church to make both the Jews and the Pagans happy hence the birth of Christianity. Its leader was a Jew and they got to keep the Jewish Bible (Old Testament), but they also had to agree to the new testament and they got to keep the pagan festivals such as the festival of new life (Easter) and the mid winter festival (Christmas), The festival for the dead (All saints day following halloween) and the list goes on. The 10 commandments were there to stop corruption in a relgiously corrupt society and an eye for an eye and the fairness of Judasism became thou shall allways love thou neighbour. I doubt that Jesus has anything to do with Christianity in his life time. I think he was just a jewish preacher with an interest in politics but then again we dont have any evidence so its just an opinion.
  • No,He didn't,here are some reasons why Jesus didn't die for all.Well if Jesus bore all mans sins,then hell would be empty,cause their sins would be payed for.You cant say well they have to choose him,well Paul said we are dead in our trespasses and sins.So God has to make us alive Spritually,before we can choose anything.So God chooses His elect as Ephesians 1:4,5 says.Isaiah 53:12,it is talking about Jesus and He says He bare the sins of MANY,it doesn't say all.
  • Good question! My answer is, no. Now I will tell you why... When asked, "For whom did Christ die?" John Owen said, "The Father imposed His wrath due unto, and the Son underwent punishment for, either: All the sins of all men. All the sins of some men, or Some of the sins of all men. In which case it may be said: That if the last be true, all men have some sins to answer for, and so, none are saved. That if the second be true, then Christ, in their stead suffered for all the sins of all the elect in the whole world, and this is the truth. But if the first be the case, why are not all men free from the punishment due unto their sins? You answer, “Because of unbelief.” I ask, Is this unbelief a sin, or is it not? If it be, then Christ suffered the punishment due unto it, or He did not. If He did, why must that hinder them more than their other sins for which He died? If He did not, He did not die for all their sins!” - John Owen You must ask yourself if you believe the Bible to be the infallible Word of God. If you believe this to be true, then read on. If you do not believe the Bible, then it makes no difference who He died for, because it surely wasn't you. The Bible says: "There is none righteous, no not one." (Rom 3:10) This even includes God's elect (chosen). If the Bible says it, then its true. Everyone sins. "for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." (Rom 3:23) Sin = lawlessness. Sin is against God (breaking God's laws/ 10 commandments). God will return wrath upon all those who sin. Who then will receive wrath? Everyone. Because "all have sinned". Some will even be sadly surprised that they will receive wrath instead of eternal life. "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.' (Mat 7:21-23) Would God turn someone away, for whom He died on the cross? Would Jesus be propitiation for all, and then turn some away from heaven? Could the atonement have been partially in vain? "What shall we say then? There is no injustice with God, is there? May it never be! For He says to Moses, 'I shall have mercy on whom I shall have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion. So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy." (Rom 9:14-16) "The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23) That free gift is called grace. Grace is Christ's work on the cross. "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him". (2 Cor 5:21) However, "God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble". (1 Peter 5:5) We must humble ourselves in order to receive His gift of repentance (2 Tim 2:25) and His gift of grace. Take a really good look at the parable of the sower (Mark 4:1-20), Its another great example showing pure evidence of Christ's atonement being sufficient and limited. Ask yourself this, If someone be falsely converted and ultimately find eternal damnation, could it be the fault of Jesus atoning death to be insufficient? Well if you say He died for everyone, then you say His death was insufficient. Because hell is not empty and eternal damnation is a reality. Therefore the atonement was insufficient for those who are in hell. Why would there be the need of this parable if the sower? Why does the Holy Spirit want us to know this? Look closer at Mark's Gospel... "Now after John (the Baptist) had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel."" (Mark 1:14,15) Jesus = The Sower, the seed = the gospel. Jesus preached to a large crowd and then explained to His disciples why He told the parables, in Mark ch.4 He told them if they do not understand this parable then they will not understand the other parables. Mark 4 :3 - (explained by v.14) The sower sows the Word. :4 - (explained by v.15) The birds = Satan or enemies of the gospel :5 - (explained by v.16&17) Saved for a season. False convert. Not backsliders, they were never saved. Not true roots. :7 - (explained by v.18&19) Choked out. Most people who claim to be saved have this happen. :8 - (explained by v.20) Good soil. Good soil must be cultivated in order to allow anything to grow. Likewise your heart must be cultivated. God said "And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh" (Exek 11:19) The parable is about true and false conversion. He died for those who are true converts. If you believe the Bible to be true, then you believe that everything is by God's foreknowledge and nothing happens by happenstance. It is all up to God's sovereignty over everything, good or evil. Especially the atonement. People who believe that He died for everyone are usually those in a man based theology and have to submit to a sovereign God. Those are the same people who see an image of Jesus knocking at a door (of your heart) as it is grown up with vines and has no door knob. They believe He is waiting patiently and begging you to choose Him. If you are being bombarded by this type of theology, read John 15 and 16. If you would like me to be your exegete for those passages, I would gladly help. Read John 15:16 for sure. Like scripture says, He has mercy on whom He has mercy and compassion on whom He has compassion" (Romans 9:18) I hope this answer helps you! From the narrow path, One Over 99 Ministries
  • No, I don't. I'm not convinced he ever existed at all. But if he did he was man - maybe wise and maybe not. But even just looking at the myth - it's impossible. If he was god and ascended into heaven - it's impossible for him to die. If he did die - then he was mortal and not a god. I'm not sure how even a deity can be both mortal and imortal simultaneously. +5 (despite the DR's I'm sure to get foe this)
  • No. The fact that he died in the desert after crossing the Rio Grande on a dark and stormy night doesn't mean he died for everyone. The rest of the wet backs kept on going without him
  • Yes. We are all God's children, but we have been granted free will and have to come to Him to be saved.
