You say Adam can’t be saved simply because of this verse:
“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left…”
Notice the key words/phrases:
1.) “deliberately keep on sinning”
– How many times does the Bible show Adam sinning?
Besides, 1 Timothy 2:14 says “And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner (or transgressor).”
2.) “after we have received the knowledge of the truth”
–This wouldn’t apply to Adam since he didn’t have the “knowledge of the truth” because he hadn’t eaten the fruit of Knowledge of Good and Evil yet.
–Since this verse uses the word “we”, it wouldn’t just apply to Adam or Eve, would it? This would apply to ANYONE who “deliberately keeps sinning after receiving the knowledge of the truth.” — So are you saying that Christ’s ransom can’t apply to many others?
Remember: “can’t” and “won’t” are different.
LOL — someone actually agrees with Moses who doesn’t even understand the difference between “can’t” and “won’t”? I’ve even said it as a reminder because I knew someone would be ignorant enough to not realize.
I didn’t say everyone WILL be saved. Everyone CAN be saved; or else they were purposely born to die and go to Hell with no hope….
Again: Will and Can’t are DIFFERENT.
1 John 2:2 “He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”
1 Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.”
1 Timothy 4:10 “For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.”
Hebrews 8:11 “And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.”
1 Timothy 2:5-6 “…Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all…”
Hebrews 2:9 “…so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.”
1 Peter 3:18 “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous (Jesus) for the unrighteous (Adam), that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit”
–Since Jesus defeated sin, would that mean that Adam’s sin still remained? Since sin came from one man (Adam) and was passed to all others, wouldn’t it make since for Jesus to defeat sin at the source in order to free all others from this chain? Do you actually think he cut the source off at Cain? Then that wouldn’t be defeating all of sin, only most of it. In order for Christ to have completely defeated sin, he would’ve needed to defeat Adam’s sin as well.
See Romans 5:12-18 (especially v. 18).
JUST ANOTHER REMINDER: “can’t” and “won’t” are different.
Jesus died for everybody so they can (be able to) be saved; but WILL they be saved? It’s their choice to receive Christ’s ransom or not; but at least they are able to (can)!
