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.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • 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
