Response to Re: Jesus was sent to save sinners (Matt. 1:21).

 

INCquisitor:

Jesus said God did not send him into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.

It is clear as day that "world" refers to sinners, and sinners are those whose sins have not been forgiven by God.

Since only those who have been "delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of God's son IN WHOM there is redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins (Col. 1:13-14), and will therefore, be saved, then "world" refers to those who have not been translated to the kingdom of God's son.

Me:

<<"world" refers to those who have not been translated to the kingdom of God's son.>>

Were there people already translated to the kingdom of God's Son before God sent His Son into the world?

INCQUISITOR:

The answer is obvious. "God SENT His son into the world that through him the world might be saved" (John 3:17). The kingdom of God's son was not yet established before God SENT him into the world. Hence, it stands to reason that NOBODY was translated to the kingdom of God's son BEFORE God SENT Jesus into the world.

Me:

So, if you say that NOBODY was translated to the kingdom of God's son BEFORE God SENT Jesus into the world, then would it not stand to your reason that the "world" actually refers to all then?
