23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
You keep IGNORING Rom. 5:1-5. Why?
(No, scratch that.... We all KNOW why. Because it refutes your misinterpretation.)
Paul is still talking about all.
That's because you're IGNORING the change in scope between Rom. 1-3 and Rom. 4-5.
Furthermore, if Romans 5:19 is about the elect and they are the many that were made sinners, you believe Paul just contradicted himself in the previous verse.
Not at all.
If all have sinned (Romans 3), doesnt that mean they all were made sinners by Adam. Are you saying that something other than Adam makes the non elect sinners? This is a mess.
Further, if you insist that Rom. 5 refers to "all men" universally, then you can't avoid "original sin". You're right... Your interpretation certainly IS "a mess".
