Below we see from the Greek Lexicon that the word cosmos means the inhabitants of the world, the human race as a whole and all of its ungodly multitude as a whole
"the ungodly multitude
; the whole mass of men alienated from God, and therefore hostile to the cause of Christ" (cf. Winer's Grammar, 26): John 7:7
; John 14:27
(); ; 1 Corinthians 1:21
; 1 Corinthians 6:2
; 1 Corinthians 11:32
; 2 Corinthians 7:10
; James 1:27
; 1 Peter 5:9
; 2 Peter 1:4
; 2 Peter 2:20
; 1 John 3:1, 13; 1 John 4:5; 1 John 5:19;
of the aggregate of ungodly and wicked men in O. T. times, Hebrews 11:38
; in Noah's time, ibid. 7; with οὗτος added, Ephesians 2:2
(on which see αἰών, 3); εἶναι ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου and ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου τούτου (see εἰμί, V. 3rd.), John 8:23
; John 15:19
; John 17:14, 16
; 1 John 4:5;
λαλεῖν ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου, to speak in accordance with the world's character and mode of thinking, 1 John 4:5
; ὁ ἄρχων τοῦ κόσμου τούτου, i. e. the devil, John 12:31
; John 14:30
; John 16:11
; ὁ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ he that is operative in the world (also of the devil), 1 John 4:4
; τό πνεῦμα τοῦ κόσμου
1 John 2:2-
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:15-17
-Do not love the world or anything in the world
. If anyone loves the world,
love for the Father is not in them. 16
For everything in the world
—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world
. 17 The world
and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
1 John 4:3-6
- but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5
They are from the world
and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world
, and the world
listens to them. 6
We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
1 John 4:14
- And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world
1 John 5:19
- We know that we are from God, andthe whole world
lies in the power of the evil one.
We see above that the whole world
lies under the evil one and its that same identical whole world
in 1 John 2:2
that Jesus made PROPITIATION for which is clear from the CONTEXT in 1 John.
Now its very clear from the Lexicon definition and in 1 John that the cosmos/world does not mean Gods elect (that is Calvinism) not what John means in his epistle. It clearly means everyone not exceptions in this world, all of its inhabitants who make up the ungodly multitude. It is clearly all inclusive of everyone, all, the entire world that lies under the evil one in opposition to God from the context of 1 John.
hope this helps !!!
