Romans 5:18 - One on One Bookmark

Therefore, to be short, as by one man's offence the guiltiness came on all men to make them subject to death, so on the opposite side, the righteousness of Christ, which by God's mercy is imputed to all believers, justifies them, that they may become partakers of everlasting life.  Not only because our sins are forgiven us, but also because the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us. (Geneva Bible Translation Notes)

So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. (NASB)
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. (KJV)
Yes, Adam's one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ's one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. (NLT)
Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act came righteousness leading to life for all people. (NET)
1Co 15:22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. New Living Translation

How can mere mortal begin to articulate the length, breadth, and depth of such an amazing statement.  I try to picture myself in the court room standing before the jury as the foreman reads the verdict.  Instead of being condemned to an eternal separation as I deserve, I hear the amazing words of life instead!

Rom 5:15-19:  Through one man's offence, all mankind are exposed to eternal condemnation. But the grace and mercy of God, and the free gift of righteousness and salvation, are through Jesus Christ, as man: yet the Lord from heaven has brought the multitude of believers into a more safe and exalted state than that from which they fell in Adam.  This free gift did not place them anew in a state of trial, but fixed them in a state of justification, as Adam would have been placed, had he stood.  Notwithstanding the differences, there is a striking similarity.  As by the offence of one, sin and death prevailed to the condemnation of all men, so by the righteousness of one, grace prevailed to the justification of all related to Christ by faith.  Through the grace of God, the gift by grace has abounded to many through Christ; yet multitudes choose to remain under the dominion of sin and death, rather than to apply for the blessings of the reign of grace. But Christ will in nowise cast out any who are willing to come to him.  (Matthew Henry)
