I have a genuine theological question and I was hoping someone here could help me with this because I really don’t know the answer. The question is, why do people say “Christ died for me” or “Christ died for you?” How can any of us matter than much individually? I mean, hypothetically speaking, if you or me had never been born, wouldn’t He have still died for all the other people? How can anyone believe that Christ died for any of us personally as opposed to collectively? I’m not trying to be cute; I’m confused.
