By one man’s disobedience many were made sinners

Rom 5:19

Why does it not say "all" but "many"? Because the previous verse says:

By the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation

Rom. 5:18

Does this mean that not all were made sinners though upon all came to condemnation?

I am interested in an overview of the major views in Christianity.

  • The is a question on hermeneutics on this hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/20614/… but it is pretty technical – pehkay Jun 5 '18 at 6:08

    @emma questions like this on this site require a Faith Tradition (Catholic, Baptist, Lutheran, etc...) to give a Christian answer from a doctrinal standpoint. On the other site, you'll get a technical answer from a neutral viewpoint. I don't think it would be a bad thing for someone to re-answer the other question in a non-technical way. I'll ask on their site what to do in this case. But here the question should remain closed unless you want to edit it to add a doctrinal perspective so concrete (useful to you) answers can be provided. – Peter Turner Jun 5 '18 at 12:26
  • why can't i receive or hear what all faith traditions say, so that i can learn and if need be make up my mind, which if any i want to subscribe to, instead of cancelling my question? – emma Jun 6 '18 at 10:41
  • @emma you can certainly ask for an overview of approaches to the question. – Matt Gutting Jun 6 '18 at 20:00

    @emma Patience. I and one other have voted to reopen the question. These things take a bit of time and a consensus of users. It's not at all a bad question, now that you've edited it. – Matt Gutting Jun 8 '18 at 10:23
