I think Michelle has answered Wobble's question already.
John 3:17-18 (English Standard Version)
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
Verse 18 is quite pertinent all "Jehovah's Witnesses".
Tammy, my thoughts are "the world" pertains to our world i.e. mankind. Also, it is probably one of those theological nuggets that does bear too much use dwelling upon.
That said :)
godrulz "We are not responsible for Adam or Hitler's sin, just our own."
godrulz, would you agree that the forefathers are responsible (in part) for us receiving the consequences of sin, see here for example? Exodus 34:7
I guess the main issue I have is the idea that it is wholly a question of our own volition whether we sin or not.
Surely that would leave the possibility of parts of mankind being without sin, if indeed you believe we are created holy?
Why do we all fall into the honey pot
Why haven't some seen sin leads to a sticky death and avoided it?
Are we not just already born into the sticky death of Adam?
I suppose when push comes to shove I am a Calvinist.
Blessings in Christ,
