He is risen! = Universal Justification

The set is the sin of the world.
John 1:29
"The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" -ENGEMT

A subset is the sin of Christians.
Romans 4:25
"who was delivered up for our transgressions, and was raised for our justification." - ENGEMT

The resurrection is evidence and a declaration that Jesus was justified of the sin world which He bore and which was not His. There is no sin that isn't included in that universal declaration of justification.

It is only through faith in Christ that we receive or partake in that declaration of universal justification as no one comes to the Father but by Him. John 14:6
"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." - ENGEMT

He is risen, indeed!

One correction--there IS one sin not included--blaspheming the HS by rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord amd God and Savior. But He did indeed die for "not our sins only, but the sins of the WHOLE WORLD."

:)

We are looking at the matter in a different way. It isn't that the sin wasn't atoned for but that what constitutes the sin Jesus spoke of in itself excludes a person from the work of the Spirit, faith, by which people receive or partake of that one declaration of universal justification.

Jesus is our justification.
