    paul contrasted that with ALL men having been made dead in Adam by his sin and Fall, now ALL men made alive to God in Christ by His death...

    Does that mean
    ALL people now reconciled back to God?
    All people will actually be saved?
    "ALL" is same as saying God loves All, desiring ALL to come to Chrsit and be saved?

    All not really meaning "all"?

    15:23 may give us the answer. Who are the "all men made alive" in v.22?

    "...they that are Christ's...."

    I think it does. There are several different definitions of world, all, etc., depending on the context.

    If I walk into a room, say "well, we're all here, let's get started," all has a specific meaning, and it's not every man without exception.
