Poor exegesis results in denominational traditions... namely, 1 Jn.2:1,2...

The passages noted are easy enough to understand seeing as the Bible as a whole substantiates what is being said there by God...1
the apostle writes having the mind of Christ, 1 Cor.1:10; 2:16b, saying "" we " have an advocate with the Father ""... John is writing
to the elect, 1 Jn.1. Throughout the entire Bible the only persons whose sins are propitiated are those of the elect, Mt.25:31-46;
Jn.1:12,13,29; Ro.9... the rest are passed by as it was for the Egyptians during the Passover.

Who, then, is included in the " whole world " of which John writes in v.2 ? According to basic grammar of 1 Jn.2:1,2 and substantiated
by the whole Bible, and since the " whole world " is definitely not filled the Holy Spirit who can not be separated from genuine
salvation as far as the whole Bible is concerned, Eph.1:13,14; Ro.8:9b... not showing the fruits of the Spirit nor understanding the
Word of God as given us in Holy Scripture for lack of the indwelling Holy Spirit, Jn.14:16,17, Christ is the propitiation for the
" whole world " of the elect and them alone... it wasn't the elect who crucified Christ, it was the non-elect. It wasn't the elect who
betrayed Christ, it was the non-elect. The elect do not do such things lest the pretenders to the faith slander the indwelling Holy
Spirit saying He motivates all who Christ died in place of to do evil.

In John's writing's he uses the same word " kosmos " translated " world " 7 different ways. Jn.12:19 is one such example. Asia and the
Americas were populated when that statement by the Pharisees was made... certainly, those persons didn't flock to Israel to see Jesus
and follow Him on that occasion. Another use of kosmos as used by John is found in 1 Jn.5:19. The " whole world " which lies in the
sexual embrace of Satan is the " whole world " of the non-elect... those who are spoken of in Mt.25:31-46... those who are spoken of in
1 Cor.6:9,10 and Rev.20 who will be cast into the Lake of Fire... not the elect... the non-elect.

Simple grammar ought to tell anyone that the propitiation for " our " sins defines who the " whole world " is. But this passage doesn't
teach anyone in the world of Christendom. Christendom has the fancy idea that Christ died in the place of the " whole world " while the
" whole world " is yet in the sexual embrace with Satan to this day... it is definitely not the elect who are in the arms of Satan
since these are indwelt by the Holy Spirit of Christ ever learning His Word, the Bible, ever increasing in the fruits of the Holy
Spirit who is in them. Not so for the " whole world " Christendom claims Christ died in place of who are yet fulfilling the lusts of
their flesh.

Those who Christ died for evidence salvation according to the Word of God while the non-elect who Christ did not die for evidence their
allegiance to Satan as in Ro.3:10ff; 1 Cor.6:9,10 and Rev.21:8 for example, practicing daily the fruits of darkness.

The scheme concocted by sweet talking ministers gone awry is that anyone can save themselves if they would try hard enough. Sinner's
Prayer's were concocted for that very purpose. Recite it with gusto and you will initiate salvation for yourself. Not to recite it nor
do any other denominationally approved good works and Christ is stopped cold... He will not save because He can not unless and until
fallen man does something worthy enough to merit salvation for his initiating it. Christ, then, is an utter failure without fallen mans
prior approval that His death should have meaning. Ro.3:10 and following simply does not apply to fallen man rendering him incapable of
self-salvation as far as modern Christendom is concerned.

The " our sins " of 1 Jn.2:2 defines who the " whole world " is as does the contrast between the redeemed and the not redeemed as we
read in chapters 4,5, and 6 of Ephesians... it is all of the elect and them alone from Abel to the last redeemed person referred to in
Rev.7:9ff whose sins are propitiated. If it were as Christendom would have it, only those properly invoking God are ever saved. For the
rest, Christ died for them but couldn't redeem them so Christ becomes a failure who died for all but could only save those properly
invoking Him and God now punishes twice for the same sins... once on those persons dying in the sins Christ died for and once again on
Christ Himself who died for their sins... double jeopardy... God is preached by fallen Christendom as being unjust.
