“But as for you, speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine.” (Titus 2:1, NASB)
Example (a Verse from this Same Letter in Titus):
“For the Grace of God has appeared, bringing Salvation to all men,” (Titus 2:11, NASB)
“For the GRACE of God has appeared, bringing SALVATION to ALL MEN,” (Titus 2:11, NASB)
“Sound Doctrine” referred to in the Book of Titus must ‘first’ refer to the things mentioned in this book.
It is clear that there is NO mention of ANY ETERNAL HELL in the Book of Titus (Can you see it?) proving that the ‘Sound Doctrine’ (Titus 2:1) refers to ‘things BEYOND these AFTERLIFE JUDGMENTS’ and toward the SALVATION of ALL MEN in the END in its OWN TIMES (implied in Titus 2:11).
Apostle Paul gives such a similar conclusion to God Saving ALL MEN (1 Timothy 2:4-KJV) beyond the ‘afterlife Judgments’ in the Book of Timothy too (1 Timothy 4:1) where only believers don’t endure any afterlife Judgment at all (and thus are more ‘special’ gaining more in His Kingdom too, 1 Timothy 4:10) and that’s why we ought to ‘Give Thanks’ on behalf of ALL MEN too (1 Timothy 2:1) Knowing this Glorious Truth Prophetically before it comes to pass or becomes a Testimony for ‘each of the ALL in its Own Divinely-appointed-Kairois-Plural TIMES’ for it (1 Timothy 2:6).
(i) All Men = Law Keepers + Law Breakers
Eventually both the Law Breakers and Law Keepers of All Law & Prophets (Context: Matthew 5:17 – 18 first) will be in His Kingdom of the Heavens eventually as God Alone is Good!, Verse:
“Whoever then shall break one of the least of these commandments and shall teach others the same, he will be called least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whoever shall keep and shall teach them, he will be called great in the kingdom of the heavens.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:19, BLB)
Being IN the “Kingdom of the Heavens” = means that all will ENTER His Kingdom eventually
(ii) All Men = None will remain banished after they die being ‘forever’ in afterlife Judgments as God does NOT change from being an AFTERLIFE RECONCILER, Verse:
“We will certainly die and be like water poured out on the ground, which can’t be recovered. But God would not take away a life; He would devise plans so that the one banished from Him does not remain banished.” (2 Samuel 14:14, CSB)
AFTERLIFE RECONCILER = “We will certainly DIE… NOT take away a life … plans so that the one banished from Him [in AFTERLIFE JUDGMENTS first, Context] —> “does NOT remain banished [in Hell or any other afterlife Judgment as this ‘General Verse’ Reveals about God’s Unchanging Principles]”
(iii) ALL MEN will be SAVED eventually (not immediately as some may have to endure afterlife Judgments accordingly first), Verse:
“Who (God our Saviour) will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4, KJV)
KJV Translated the VERB-WILL-HAVE in the Original Biblical Koine Greek here making the meaning of this Verse ‘more accurate’.
(iv) ALL MEN = ALL HUMAN BEINGS ever Created
ALL MEN is not ‘all types or races of men’ (as there are other Greek Words for this) but is ALL HUMAN BEINGS ever Created as this Verse —> (below, from this same letter, same Inspired author) – apostle Paul wrote each of 1 Timothy 2:1, 1 Timothy 2:4 and 1 Timothy 4:10 at the same time together with the phrase “those who believe” distinctly as a ‘subset’ of ‘All men’ only in Verse below:
“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the Living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” – apostle Paul (1 Timothy 4:10, NASB)
Does the word “especially” (‘Malista’ in Greek) in Verse above mean ‘only’, hence ‘only believers’?
- Greek has a Word for ‘Only’ which is NOT Malista (e. g. In 1 John 2:2) and please consider some simple Verses below which is by the same inspired author, apostle Paul himself in this same Koine Greek Grammar using this same word-malista in Verses below too to understand the meaning correctly as it is Written:
(1) If MALISTA or “Especially” means ONLY
Now let’s replace the ‘especially’ found in Verses above with the Word ONLY and you may decide to believe this if you think it makes ‘sense’ to you:
“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the Living God, who is the Savior of all men, ONLY of believers.” (1 Timothy 4:10, NASB)
“For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, ONLY those of the circumcision,” (Titus 1:10, NASB)
“When you come bring the cloak which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, ONLY the parchments.” (2 Timothy 4:13, NASB)
“The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, ONLY those who work hard at preaching and teaching.” (1 Timothy 5:17, NASB)
If the word especially or ‘Malista’ meant ONLY, then the latter three Verses would imply the following absurd meanings:
Titus 1:10 —> ONLY those of the circumcision are rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers.
2 Timothy 4:13 —-> ONLY the parchments is to be brought from among the cloak and the books.
Timothy 5:17 —> ONLY those who work hard at preaching and teaching among the ‘elders’ are worthy of ‘double honour’. Too bad for your charity-working elders then.
Can you see how incompetent such a linguistic claim is?
(2) If MALISTA or “Especially” means A SPECIAL SUBSET IS
Let’s consider the Verses likewise with this REPLACEMENT as follows:
“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the Living God, who is the Savior of all men, A SPECIAL SUBSET IS of believers.” (1 Timothy 4:10, NASB)
“For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, A SPECIAL SUBSET IS those of the circumcision,” (Titus 1:10, NASB)
“When you come bring the cloak which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, A SPECIAL SUBSET IS the parchments.” (2 Timothy 4:13, NASB)
“The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, A SPECIAL SUBSET IS those who work hard at preaching and teaching.” (1 Timothy 5:17, NASB)
So, here’s the Irrefutable part:
The Verse in 1 Timothy 4:10 refers to God Saving ALL Men eventually (as opposed to believers only) —> but believers are more ‘special’ (e.g. believers only are Saved with ‘no’ afterlife Judgment as mentioned John 5:24) and will get greater rewards (Matthew 5:19).
In fact, the “LIVING God as Saviour of ALL Men” 1 Timothy 4:10 can be understood with the phrase God “Will have ALL men to be SAVED” (in 1 Timothy 2:4, KJV) itself where the ‘Verb-Will-Have’ is Translated Correctly in this translation making it Irrefutable as it is WRITTEN.
“I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.” – apostle John (1 John 2:21, NASB)
“As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;” – apostle Paul (Ephesians 4:14, NASB)
More Discussions regarding this:
(v) Is ALL People = All Men always?
On a related note, in Luke 2:30 – 32, we have “all peoples” (i. e. all people groups, understood to be all races by some scholars) mentioned in both Luke 2:10 and Luke 2:31 in regards to Christ being a SAVIOR for SALVATION for them (Luke 2:11 and Luke 2:30) PROPHETICALLY.
It is a common fallacy for eternal hell theologians to claim that this Salvation in Christ is only for “some chosen ones from all these people groups or races, i. e. some from the all peoples”. Can’t you see that it is “all peoples” or “all people” and NOT ‘some from all peoples’ or ‘some from all people’ or ‘chosen ones or partially from all people(s)’ mentioned in both Luke 2:10 and Luke 2:31?
So, they dare REMOVE the ALL from ALL PEOPLE(S) from His Holy Word as their claim implies which is “sad” and is completely a man-made interpretation AGAINST what is ACTUALLY WRITTEN.
Here is the simple meaning of ALL PEOPLE(S): Well, ALL PEOPLE(S) means ALL PEOPLE groups/races (including both Israelites and Gentiles being “ALL MEN”) —-> yes, ALL PEOPLE(S) refers to ALL HUMAN BEINGS in ALL RACES/GROUP Classifications (e. g. JEW vs GENTILES, no matter what classification you refer to) = ALL MEN.
Now, why does Luke 2:10 and Luke 2:31 refer to a Greek phrase which also means ALL PEOPLE(S) in the context of RACES/GROUPS instead of the more general ALL MEN phrase as it occurs in say John 12:32 or 1 Timothy 2:4 or 1 Timothy 4:10?
Simply because SALVATION was thought to be ‘belonging to the JEWS only prior to the Coming of Christ’ (John 4:22) —> and thus at HIS BIRTH both Luke 2:10 and Luke 2:31 REVEALS that His SALVATION as SAVIOUR refers to ALL PEOPLES (including ALL people GROUPS and RACES as well!).
This is evidently clear as the highlight of GENTILES and ISRAEL are both mentioned in the consecutive verse (Luke 2:32) as the ALL PEOPLE referred to in Luke 2:31 proving HE is the SALVATION for ALL MEN in this context too irrevocably, where
GENTILES + ISRAEL (Luke 2:32) = ALL PEOPLE(S) in Luke 2:31 = ALL Humans in these Races/Groups = ALL MEN (Romans 5:18 – 19, 1 Corinthians 15:21 – 22).
Please also note the word “all” which occurs separately from the Greek word translated as “people(s)” in both Luke 2:31 and Luke 2:10 respectively making the above claim true irrefutably.
In other words, in some occurrences in Scripture, the Greek word translated as “people(s)” in Luke 2:31 or Luke 2:10, it occurs by “itself only” or with other limiting words such as “Jewish” or “our” or equivalent being in front of it (e. g. “Jewish people” or “our people”) which may point to a ‘limited usage’ in such cases (context, yes) but NOT so in both Luke 2:31 and Luke 2:10 where the QUANTIFYING Greek Word in front of “the people(s)” is ONLY “ALL” making it to refer to ALL MEN ONLY as claimed and proved in analysis above refuting the popular careless fallacy regarding this.
Can you see the accuracy of Biblical Koine Greek in Holy Scripture? Astounding, isn’t it?
(vi) How about afterlife Judgment for some men first?
Re-Focus: Meaning of James 2:13
Last but not least,
Here’s an interesting note regarding James 2:13 which easily refutes any false claims of ‘context’ against it, please consider:
“For [afterlife] judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over [afterlife] judgment.” – apostle James (James 2:13, NASB)
Please note that in James 2:13, if the “judgment” in the first sentence “For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy” —-> refers to the [afterlife] Judgment —> then, the “judgment” in the second sentence “mercy triumphs over judgment” in this ‘same verse’ —-> must also refer to [afterlife Judgment] as well —-> with no twisting nor manipulations of any kind.
Can you really see it?
His Mercy will Triumph over [any afterlife] Judgment sentence (even if it’s the eternal Hell Sentence) as it is written in James 2:13 (in the most extreme Judgment case of ‘Judgment with no Mercy first’ – Can you see it?) and this Mercy as the Final Word for Judgment eventually is to “All” too as it is written in Romans 11:32 which includes both the obedient and the disobedient (Romans 11:30 – 31) which causes “All” (the command breaker and the commands keeper of any Law & Prophets, context: Matthew 5:17 – 18) to be “in the kingdom of the heavens eventually” (Matthew 5:19).
If any afterlife Judgment Sentence remains eternally, Mercy has NOT Triumphed over it contradicting James 2:13 and the ‘same’ Mercy which is Promised to ALL which is Written in Romans 11:32 too making this position Scriptural-ly self Contradicting against each of the ‘other Verses’ Quoted here too. Can you ‘really’ see it “as it is WRITTEN ONLY”?
His Mercy – Isn’t it only available in the Dispensation of Grace (now)?
Mercy is given in the [afterlife] Judgment too as it’s pointed in James 2:13 and Romans 11:32 since “all” don’t receive it ‘in the dispensation of Grace now’. The concept that His Mercy is ‘available’ and that a ‘man must make a choice for it’ does NOT exist in Scripture which especially contradicts Romans 9:16. Can you see it? If it depends even a little on some ‘choice’ or ‘our effort’ in ‘any little way’, Mercy is NO longer Mercy because Mercy is Undeserved, Unearned and Unmerited which is given freely to “All” eventually as described in Verses prior.
God does NOT Write ‘available’ things when it refers to things which Depends on Him Alone, as such is with His Mercy (Romans 9:16). Thus, since He has Promised to have Mercy upon “All” eventually (Romans 11:32), it will Triumph (and END) any afterlife Judgment Sentence as James 2:13 mentions by His Action ONLY. Done.
ONLY believers receive it in the ‘present time’ (example: Romans 3:26, Colossians 1:22, Romans 11:5 – aren’t the ‘believers’ saved in the ‘present time-highlight’ obvious in Scripture?). The rest later in their respective afterlife Judgment as God Wills (Romans 9:16, Luke 12:59). Yes, the context of Luke 12:59 which refers to ‘afterlife Judgment’ —-> ‘till the last penny’ (the word “till” or “until” implying an END clearly) —> refers to the afterlife Judgment of both the ‘unbelievers’ and ‘believers (servants) who have fallen out’ as both are mentioned first in Luke 12:46 during this Dialogue (please refer to Luke 12:47 – 48 too).
Believers don’t get Mercy in the afterlife sir since Believers don’t even go through any afterlife Judgment (John 5:24). So, James 2:13 doesn’t refer to believers at all! Romans 11:32 refers to believers as part of the ‘all’ who receive Mercy (now) itself in the ‘present time’ (or the ‘dispensation of Grace as you call it’): e.g. Romans 3:26, Colossians 1:22 which is the ONLY meaning for the ‘election of Grace’ (Please note the word/phrase ‘present time’, ‘now’ or equivalent in Romans 11:5 – Can you understand it?)
Also, it’s Mercy promised to “All” which is Written in Romans 11:32 and ‘not believers only’ or the ‘remnant only’ (though such Greek Phrases exist in verses elsewhere, e.g. Romans 11:5, 1 Timothy 4:10 or the “you” too). Let’s NOT add NOR remove from His Word but take it ‘as it is Written’ ONLY. This is an IRREFUTABLE Point. Can you see it?
“It is Finished!” – Lord Jesus Christ (John 19:30)
Here’s a Beautiful Verse agreeing to Correct Theology:
“Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your Name give glory Because of Your lovingkindness [Mercy], because of Your truth.” (Psalm 115:1, NASB)
P/S: Faith in the Savior of All Men, Lord Jesus Christ
“It is a Trustworthy Statement deserving Full Acceptance.
For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the Living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.
Prescribe and Teach these things.” – apostle Paul (1 Timothy 4:9 – 11, NASB)
Are we ready to ‘Accept’ and ‘Teach’ the above as Christians according to the Command in verse above?
“Should I worship Him from fear of hell, may I be cast into it. Should I serve Him from desire of gaining heaven, may He keep me out. But should I worship Him from love alone, He reveals Himself to me, that my whole heart may be filled with His love and presence.” – Sadhu Sundar Singh
“To follow Christ and bear His cross is so sweet and precious that, if I find no cross to bear in heaven, I shall plead before him to send me as a missionary, if need be to hell.”- Sadhu Sundar Singh
Did the Sadhu think there was eternal punishment? — “There was punishment, but it was not eternal…Everyone after this life would be given a fair chance of making good, and attaining to the measure of fullness the soul was capable of. This might sometimes take ages.” – Sadhu Sundar Singh
In 1925 Sundar wrote, “If the Divine spark in the soul cannot be destroyed, then we need despair of no sinner… Since God created men to have fellowship with Himself, they cannot for ever be separated from Him… After long wandering, and by devious paths, sinful man will at last return to Him in whose Image he was created; for this is his final destiny.”
Afterlife Judgment – to the Final Great White Throne of Judgment
How do you understand afterlife Judgment?
I see afterlife Judgment as Luke 16:19 – 31 after we die in our souls where the believing go to the comforting regions of Hades such as Abraham’s Bosom while the unbelieving or wicked go to the punishment regions of Hades.
Since Christ has been Manifested, I also believe that anyone can be Saved from their afterlife Judgment even right now as God Wills when the Gospel is Preached to them there (1 Peter 3:18 – 19) where such ones may BELIEVE AFTER SEEING Him there in the spirit world too (John 6:40) and obtain HEALING as John 3:14 – 15 echoes mysteriously too.
No one can trick God.
For those that remain unrepentant even in the afterlife or that they must endure more Judgment being wicked, these remain there till the Final Judgment on the ‘Day of Judgment’ (Acts 17:31, 1 Peter 4:5, Luke 12:43) on His Glorious Throne (Matthew 25:31, Revelation 20:11) where based on their resurrected body, some go to age-during life whilst others to age-during Judgment (Matthew 25:46, Luke 12:46 – 48) in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11 – 15) till the LAST PENNY IS PAID ONLY (Luke 12:59).
Second Death = when Hades + Death is now mingled with the Lake of Fire, the UN-KINDLED FIRE referred to Prophetically in Luke 12:49 too (Revelation 20:14).
This Resurrected body for the Wicked (John 5:28 – 29) is PERISHABLE and stained with their own sin which will be burned or destroyed in the Lake of Fire which now is mingled with the Fires of Gehenna too (from Hades being thrown into it, Revelation 20:14) which can destroy at most one’s body + soul (Matthew 10:28, where sin dwells in the ‘flesh’ of this ‘perishable or natural resurrected body for Judgment’, 1 Corinthians 15:44) but it does not end there —> as the ‘spirit’ will live to God post this Lake of Fire Judgment as 1 Peter 4:6 reveals.
This ‘spirit’ will be given a ‘spiritual body’ accordingly (spirit + body = spiritual body), 1 Corinthians 15:44 as God Wills (1 Corinthians 15:38) thereafter [after the afterlife Judgment in the Lake of Fire at most, context of 1 Peter 4:5 first] —> the meaning of ‘spirit will live to God’ though they are Judged in the FLESH of their perishable type resurrected body first (1 Peter 4:6) —> since the Resurrection of the Dead toward obtaining a SINLESS IMPERISHABLE body (1 Corinthians 15:50, 1 Corinthians 15:42) is Promised toward the WICKED too as the HOPE of the Gospel (Acts 24:15, 1 Corinthians 15:42), as the MADE ALIVE PART (without ‘skipping’ their afterlife Judgment part which is ONLY toward ‘believers’, John 5:24) as 1 Corinthians 15:22 mentions IRREFUTABLY toward this END of RESURRECTION of ALL MEN too (1 Corinthians 15:21).
So, the Wicked die TWICE —> the first time in their earthly lives and the second time in their ‘resurrection for Judgment in a perishable body or FLESH which CAN DIE or be DESTROYED in some way, i.e. body + soul destroyed’ in the Lake of Fire as their SECOND DEATH (John 5:28 – 29, Matthew 10:28, the ‘dead’ in Revelation 20:11 – 15, 1 Peter 4:5) —-> but thereafter, ‘their spirit’ lives to GOD eventually as Prophesied in 1 Peter 4:6 as explained above toward the END of being MADE ALIVE by CHRIST (1 Corinthians 15:21 – 22, Romans 5:18 – 19, 1 Timothy 2:4, Titus 2:11, 1 Timothy 4:10, Matthew 5:19) but only post afterlife Judgment.
Please note that body + soul + spirit is DIFFERENT though they may be overlaps (1 Thessalonians 5:23) where the definition for each is NOT clear in Scripture and so I don’t speculate.
Reconciliation from the Lake of Fire is Prophetically mentioned in the Mysterious Verse below (after their Judgment first in the Lake of Fire, ‘their part’ in Revelation 21:8):
“The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.” (Revelation 22:17, NASB)
Please note that the ‘Bride’ (His Church, believers) are calling out to the “thirsty” ones (from the ‘lake of Fire’, post Judgment) to be ‘relieved of their thirst’ (as ONLY those being punished in the Lake of Fire can feel thirsty, right?). Believers can never thirst in the afterlife (John 6:35, John 4:14) and thus cannot be the ones referred to in the verse above (Revelation 22:17) especially since ‘all believers of faith’ are His BRIDE (mentioned distinctly in Revelation 22:17). Indeed,
“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.” (John 6:35, NASB)
“but whoever may drink of the water that I will give him, may not thirst — to the age; and the water that I will give him shall become in him a well of water, springing up to life age-during.’” – Lord Jesus Christ (John 4:14, YLT)
1) A Vision of Hell agreeing to the Verses and Explanations above is by Sadhu Sundar Singh in links below:
2) Regarding the Lake of Fire
Some people think that the ‘Rich man and Lazarus’ story in Luke 16 is just a ‘parable’.
Here’s a Simple Reply to refute such a false claim:
A Parable cannot use “imaginary things” such as “a unicorn” but things which EXIST ONLY.
Thus even if Luke 16’s Depiction is a parable, such a place of torment vs comfort MUST EXIST.
So viewing Luke 16 as a Parable or NOT, we still find such an afterlife place of torment vs comfort to be EXISTENT regardless.
By the way, “Abraham” is a “real person” mentioned in Luke 16 too.

Souls – Lost Souls?
Can one lose his soul? Yes:
“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?” – Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 8:36, NASB)
How is a Soul Lost?
“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:28, NASB)
NO HOPE in any creation when a MAN DIES and is in the POWER of SHEOL if he is lost:
“What man can live and not see death? Can he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.” (Psalm 89:48, NASB)
Is there HOPE in CHRIST?
“From the hand of Sheol I do ransom them, From death I redeem them, Where is thy plague, O death? Where thy destruction, O Sheol? Repentance is hid from Mine eyes.” – God Speaks (in Hosea 13:14, YLT)
Lord Jesus Christ can Save that Soul which couldn’t keep itself alive as it is Prophesied Majestically in this Messianic Psalm:
“All the prosperous of the earth will eat and worship, All those who go down to the dust will bow before Him, Even he who cannot keep his soul alive.” – king David Speaks Prophetically Regarding Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah (Psalm 22:29, NASB)
“ALL the prosperous of the earth will eat and worship, ALL those who go down to the dust will bow before Him, Even he who CANNOT keep HIS SOUL ALIVE.” (Psalm 22:29, NASB)
Truly, NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE with GOD Alone (Luke 1:37)
Blessed be the Saviour of the World!
Hades (in Greek, Luke 16:23) = Sheol (in Hebrew, Hosea 13:14)

Ransom for Many or All?
Is Christ’s Ransom for Many or All?
Let’s consider the Verses first:
1) Ransom for Many – Verses
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45, NASB)
“just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28, NASB)
“for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.” (Matthew 26:28, NASB)
“so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.” (Hebrews 9:28, NASB)
2) Ransom for All
“who did give himself a ransom for all — the testimony in its own times –” (1 Timothy 2:6, YLT)
3) His Ransom for Many or All?
Let’s consider these set of Verses:
“Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.” (Hebrews 9:26 – 28, NASB)
What do these Verses mean?
(i) Christ’s Ransom toward the “Many”
Firstly, who are “the Many” referred to in each of the quoted Verses?
“the many” = “those who eagerly await Him” as Hebrews 9:28 reveals.
Christ’s Ransom toward the “sins of Many” is toward “those who eagerly await Him” where these will obtain “salvation without reference to sin” as Hebrews 9:28 above clearly mentions this case agreeing to the Verse below too Perfectly:
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal [age-during] life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.” – Lord Jesus Christ (John 5:24, NASB)
Please note that
The “salvation without reference to sin” (in Hebrews 9:28) = “does not come into [afterlife] judgment, but has passed out of death into life” (in John 5:24)
(ii) How about “the rest” who are NOT part of “the many” or “those who eagerly await Him”?
Christ’s Ransom for All applies in its own Divine-Kairois (Plural) Times (1 Timothy 2:6) which is not necessarily during the ‘His Second Coming’ (a singular-time) only and it is ONLY AFTER “afterlife Judgment” first as the Consecutive Verse in Hebrews 9:27 implies.
In other words, the author of Hebrews is clearly revealing that “Generally all men need to endure afterlife Judgment after they die” (Hebrews 9:27) but “His Ransom” toward the ‘particular’ (special or highlighted) group called “the many” causes these ones to obtain a “salvation without reference to sin” (Hebrews 9:28) or “without any afterlife Judgment” (John 5:24).
But that’s not all the meaning in these Verses as the phrase “put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26) applies in CONTEXT toward “all men who needed to endure afterlife Judgment first after they die” (Hebrews 9:27) but to a particular “many” (believers only) His Ransom applies to them without them having the need to undergo any afterlife Judgment at all (Hebrews 9:28, John 5:24) as the Context of Consecutive Verses Prove Irrefutably.
In other words, His Ransom for ALL (1 Timothy 2:6) is to be understood here as to “put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26) toward the CONTEXT of “all men (or all human beings) who needed to endure afterlife Judgment first after they die” (Hebrews 9:27) but a SPECIAL group amongst these called the “MANY” (consisting of those who eagerly await His Second Coming, hence it refers to ‘believers only’) who do NOT need to undergo any afterlife Judgment at all (Hebrews 9:28, John 5:24) before His Ransom applies to them as the Context of Consecutive Verses Prove Irrefutably (in Hebrews 9:26 – 28).
So, “the rest” of the “ALL Men” must endure afterlife Judgment first (Hebrews 9:27) unlike the ‘special Many’ (or believers), who do NOT endure any afterlife Judgment at all (Hebrews 9:28) before His RANSOM applies to them too (as part of the ‘All’, 1 Timothy 2:6) —> where HIS RANSOM being APPLIED to each of the ALL (i. e. “the many” and “the rest”) in its own Divine-Kairois Times (1 Timothy 2:6) —-> causes the SAME EFFECT namely that, “their sin is put away by the sacrifice of Himself” (as Hebrews 9:26 clearly Defines this CONTEXT or Meaning First).
In the Context of “All men” (the argument holds even if the ALL in 1 Timothy 2:6 refers to “All Creation”, since “All men” would be a ‘subset of this’), and so, we see that:
ALL = “the many” + “the rest”
Or with Verses attached to it,
ALL (1 Timothy 2:6, Hebrews 9:26) = “the many” (Hebrews 9:28, John 5:24) + “the rest” (Hebrews 9:27)
“the many” (Hebrews 9:28) = NO afterlife Judgment toward believers only (John 5:24, Romans 8:19)
“the rest” (Hebrews 9:27) = The ones not part of ‘the many’ (or believers) must generally endure afterlife Judgment first —–> but Mercy Triumphs and ends it later even in the worst afterlife Judgment sentence with no Mercy first (James 2:13)
ALL (Hebrews 9:26) = The sin of ALL is put away by the by the sacrifice of Himself (including the sin of all men, particularly) —-> even the sin of the Whole World too (1 John 2:2) which will eventually cease to exist when taken away fully (John 1:29, Romans 8:20 – 21) in its own Divine-Kairois Times (1 Timothy 2:6, Ephesians 1:9 – 10) and God Will become All in All Creation (1 Corinthians 15:28) causing ALL Creation to be Born Again eventually (Romans 8:22, Mark 16:15).
Truly, God Will Have ALL MEN to be Saved (1 Timothy 2:4 – KJV, implied in Hebrews 9:26 too ‘generally’) though some may have to endure afterlife Judgment first (Hebrews 9:27) but HIS MERCY will Triumph and End any afterlife Judgment Sentence (as Prophetically mentioned in James 2:13) toward ALL too (Romans 11:32) in its “own appointed times” (1 Timothy 2:6) but believers (or ‘the many’ in these Verses) are ‘more special’ (1 Timothy 4:10) for example in the aspect that ‘believers do NOT come under any afterlife Judgment Sentence at all’ (Hebrews 9:28, John 5:24).
When will His Ransom for All take away all Sin of the World till sin ceases to exist from all creation? (1 John 2:2, 1 Timothy 2:6, John 1:29, Romans 8:20 – 22)?
In its own Divine-Kairois Times (1 Timothy 2:6) = “consummation of the ages” (Hebrews 9:26)
“consummation of the ages” (Hebrews 9:26) = “ends of the ages” (Hebrews 9:26)
His RANSOM for ALL in its own Divine-Kairois Times (1 Timothy 2:6) = “consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26)
Truly God is Good and All Glory to Lord Jesus Christ, our Blessed Savior of the World (1 John 4:14)!

The Quote in Image is a “Popular False Teaching”.
Wrong logic in quote in Picture.
The Verse which states that He lays down His Life for His Sheep means that but does NOT mean for ‘His Sheep ONLY’ as the word ‘ONLY” does NOT exist in such Verses (please don’t “add” the word “only” in your interpretation as that word does NOT exist in the Original Koine Greek of the Verses you quote itself. Please prove to me otherwise by quoting such a Verse, thank you).
Such Verses depict a “Special” highlight toward “His Sheep” as “believers” are “more special” but God Saves ALL MEN and NOT believers only as the Prophetic Conclusion in 1 Timothy 4:10 clearly reveals irrefutably agreeing to 1 Timothy 2:4-KJV and that’s why we “give thanks” for behalf of “all men” (as it is exhorted in 1 Timothy 2:1), knowing this Truth Prophetically.
He also died for the Whole World (1 John 2:2).
NO Verse says that His Ransom does NOT apply to the goats (1 Timothy 2:6).
Sheep are Saved without Judgment (John 5:24) and the rest Via His Mercy which Triumphs and ends any afterlife Judgment Sentence which may have to be endured first (James 2:13).

The Greek Word “ONLY” exists in 1 John 2:2 and NOT in ‘any of their claimed Verses’. Can you see it?
“and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.” – apostle John (1 John 2:2, NASB)
Please note the SIMPLE meaning of these PHRASES as follows:
“our sins” = ‘Sheepfold1’s sins’ = ‘His Church’s sins’
“not for ours only” = ‘not for Sheepfold1’s sins only’ = ‘not for His Church’s sins only’
“but also for those of the whole world” = ‘all creation in the World too’ (Mark 16:15)
Where His Healing Word of the Gospel will apply to ALL CREATION too eventually (Mark 16:15) till ALL CREATION is BORN AGAIN (implied in Romans 8:22) for them too to share in the aspect of being SINLESS, i.e. being ‘set free from the corruption of sin & its effects, decay, vanity’ —> sharing in the ‘Glorious Liberty of the Children of God’ in this area (Romans 8:20 – 21) where the ‘believers are more special inheriting more as the sons of God’ (Romans 8:19).
Jokes in Theology – Was Paul a Universalist?
Firstly, please Watch the Video and see ‘how much respect this man has for the Bible’ in link below:
Here is my ‘brief’ response:
The Video is a Complete Joke.
1) He did not even explain ‘any context’ as to how the ‘all men is not all men at all’.
2) The Narrow way leads to life Speaks of most ending up in afterlife Judgment First (‘not saved’). They get saved post afterlife Judgment when His Mercy Triumphs over it (James 2:13).
3) Lord Jesus Christ also Concluded that both the Law Breakers and Law Keepers will be IN the Kingdom of the Heavens eventually in Matthew 5:19 in the CONTEXT of ALL LAW and PROPHETS (mentioned/defined first in Matthew 5:17 – 18, Consecutive Verses).
Isn’t the ALL MEN in John 12:32 referring to ALL HUMAN BEINGS EVER CREATED as the Blessed Saviour Himself mentioned in this Verse (in John 12:32)?
Being IN the Kingdom means that they ‘enter it eventually too’. For example the Pharisees may have to endure the Judgment into the age to come (next age) for the Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:32) but will enter His Kingdom (after the Prostitutes and Tax Collectors) as implied in Matthew 21:31 where they may do the Will of the Father to believe in Him AFTER SEEING Him in the afterlife as John 6:40 with John 3:14 – 15 implies this.
4) Here’s a Contextual Explanation of the ALL MEN in Romans 5:18 – 19:
“So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to ALL MEN, even so through One Act of Righteousness there Resulted Justification of LIFE to ALL MEN.” (Romans 5:18, NASB)
“For as through the one man’s disobedience THE MANY were made SINNERS, even so through the Obedience of the One THE MANY will be made RIGHTEOUS.” (Romans 5:19, NASB)
The SAME ALL MEN mentioned to be condemned is the SAME ALL MEN mentioned to be eventually Justified to LIFE in Romans 5:18 without any ‘strange manipulations or explanations’.
Similarly, the SAME THE MANY which were made SINNERS is the SAME THE MANY mentioned to be MADE RIGHTEOUS eventually in Romans 5:19 agreeing to all these. The MANY is mentioned here in this verse since ALL MEN were made SINNERS through ADAM (where ADAM + THE MANY = ALL MEN who were made SINNERS). Can you see this simple equation?
In fact, ALL MEN condemned is mentioned in Romans 5:18 because it includes ADAM + the REST of MANKIND (the MANY). Lord Jesus Christ is OUT OF THIS EQUATION simply because HE did NOT SIN and is NOT condemned by ADAM’s sin but rather He is mentioned DISTINCTLY as the ONE through WHOM this JUSTIFICATION of LIFE and being MADE RIGHTEOUS will Happen toward ALL MEN (that is, ADAM + the MANY, where THE MANY = the REST of MANKIND excluding ADAM).
In Greek it is ‘the many’ and ‘not many’ which is mentioned in Romans 5:19 meaning that a particular ‘the many’ is referred to here namely that ‘the many’ that were made ‘sinners through Adam’ which is ‘the rest of mankind excluding Adam’, that is:
THE MANY (in Romans 5:19) = ‘the rest of mankind excluding Adam only’
ADAM is singled out since he is the CAUSE of the FALL from whom the CONDEMNATION and SIN is passed on. THE MANY is separately mentioned as part of the ALL MEN as the rest of MANKIND gets imputed with this sin/condemnation automatically as is the JUSTIFICATION of LIFE and the being MADE RIGHTEOUS in CHRIST is also PROMISED to be AUTOMATIC eventually when His Ransom applies in its OWN TIMES being a Testimony (or comes to pass, as 1 Timothy 2:6 reveals).
This is the END for ALL MEN and it is Inevitable as it is the IMMUTABLE WILL of God (anyone dare to claim otherwise? please be careful lest you take His Holy Name in Vain by claiming ‘opposite to this verse’; do you dare now to say otherwise? Matthew 12:37):
“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the Living God, Who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” (1 Timothy 4:10, NASB)
Simple, isn’t it? All arguments are ‘as it is Written only’ with ‘no strange explanations by omission or addition’ (Galatians 1:7, Hebrews 13:9, 1 Timothy 4:1). For example, the context of 1 Timothy 4:1 DIRECTLY implies that ‘God SAVING ALL MEN’ is NOT a doctrine of demons as it is mentioned within this SAME LETTER by apostle PAUL himself in 1 Timothy 2:4 and 1 Timothy 4:10 where in the latter verse, both the phrases ALL MEN and THOSE WHO BELIEVE are mentioned distinctly proving this FACT IRREFUTABLY too (Titus 2:1, 2 Timothy 4:3).
5) Apostle’s Paul’s Conclusion in the Book of Romans regarding afterlife Judgment is MERCY.
Yes, the final Word of Judgment is MERCY to ALL (Romans 11:32) eventually where the CONTEXT of ALL in this passage refers to both the “obedient and disobedient” (Romans 11:30 – 31) and the special case of the ‘Israel’s enemies of the Gospel will receive this Mercy too’ (Romans 11:28) as ALL Israel will be SAVED (Romans 11:26) from THEIR SINS and NOT a Nationalistic Salvation only (not the Topic here at all, Romans 11:27) is HIGHLIGHTED here as proof to the “you” (Gentiles) that God can be Trusted as HIS FREE GIFT of SALVATION is like that (Romans 11:29) despite the JUDGMENTS described throughout as well.
6) Before you or he mentions that “all Israel is not necessarily all Israel” by quoting Romans 9:6 FALSELY, please CHECK what’s actually Written in the Original Greek in Romans 9:6 before making a joke out of yourselves as ‘some translations did’. This is explained in post below:
7) The Very fact that the ‘comments are disabled’ for this Video on YouTube should tell you ‘how reliable’ their ‘arguments’ would be which CONTRADICTS this Verse (Warning!):
“for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 21:15, NASB)
