Pauline reblogged this on Uniquely Designed Individuals and commented:

Kariuki writes: “Sin” is singular, heaping together all the trillions of sins in human history into one gigantic pile. It also means that Jesus not only took away the guilt of our many individual sins, but also the guilt of the inborn sin that we inherited from Adam. “Of the world” does not mean that Christ paid the penalty for every sinner who has ever lived, because then all would be saved. It refers to people in general, both Jews and Gentiles, not to people without exception. Jesus purchased for God with his blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.” Rev 5.9 “Of the world” also points to the adequacy of Christ’s atonement for any person, no matter how terrible that person’s sins may be. Christ invites all to come to the feast that He has prepared.
