“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
King James Version (KJV)

As Adam brought death to all, Christ brings life to all. If this is a resurrection to judgement then what did Jesus accomplish for those who died in their sins. He did nothing to undo the sin of Adam that was imputed to all mankind to no fault of their own. If this were the case Adams sin had a more powerful effect on mankind than Christ 's sacrifice, death and resurrection. All of mankind dies, and as a seed planted all mankind will change for the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true "Death has been swallowed up by victory " If those raised from the dead suffer death then there is no victory and God the Father did not put dead under Jesus ' feet. There would still be the sting of death but clearly as we see from scripture there is no longer the sting of death and Christ has triumphed over all even death itself.

Is Adam more triumphant than God through Christ. I think not. This is not about resurrection but eternal peace with God for ALL who god has created. Whether in this life or beyond. Love wins the ultimate victory!

V.22. Does this verse indicate that all humanity of all time has redemption imputed to them? This would solve the problem of babies that die and all who have not been able to choose Jesus. Might it be that Rev. 20:15 and 21:8, about the final lake of fire, refers to all persons who have knowingly and defiantly rejected God and deliberately identified themselves with the devil and his angels? This would cause those to be fearful in God's presence. And, might Matt. 7:14, about few entering the way to life, be refering to this earthly abundant life that he gives for now. The context there seems to be practical living principals under the law and the prophets. Jesus is still the only way to God and his heaven, but our ability to comprehend and properly grasp would be replaced by grace imputed as for eternity. This is only a shallow interpretation and I plead for corrections.
