I forgot about this one so I will start again with a new topic title. OK...Seven verses that call Jesus the Savior of the world (kosmos). Kosmos is used in many ways; the planet, the people, a realm, and a particular people. There are more usages. Now, The Sovereign Grace folks say these passages below are speaking of the people of God. That the type of usage is no different than the usage for the world the flesh( 1john 4:5,John 15:18-19, 1 John 3:13, John 7:7, etc.). If it is not the world of the elect then one would have to ask, "Why aren't all people saved then?" For Christ to be the savior of all the world then all the world must be saved. We know everyone is not saved nor will everyone be saved. Its not an issue of us choosing Him. Either He saved all the world or He didn't. We, that believe in the doctrines of Grace, say He saved all the world. The world of His elect. What say ye? Stevie ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 3:16-17 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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 4:42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. John 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 1 John 4:13-15 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
