2 Corinthians 5:19 (KJB) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
The world is reconciled to God through the finished spiritual work of Jesus Christ. Whew… that is a spiritual mouthful in this verse. This doctrine is essential for reconciliation with God in the eternal salvation of every spiritually softened soul.
