In 2 Cor 5:14, "For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died." NIV
- v11 "we" =people in the church.
- v12 "We","us",and "you" are all people in the church.
- v13 only people within the church are being mentioned.
- v14 "the love of God controls "us". "us" = Christians.
- v14 "one has died for all". Context suggests all of us.
- v14 possibly means: since Christ has died for all Christians there should not be any Christian who does not consider themselves dead. Dead to outward appearance[v12].
- v15 Dead so that "all" might no longer live for themselves.
Despite the above it appears that some would say "all" = all the world in v14.
Therefore, in v14, what is the meaning of "all"? Is it, just Christians or all the world?
