Let’s put things in correct perspective. First it say, christ died for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:2
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Whole world in application doesn’t meant all people as it say,
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.
The whole world implies as not the entire world as during those times, Christianity was present only in those parts and was not spread worldwide thus whole world implies a particular world then, possibly, the known world then, the roman empire. Thus whole world doesn’t imply it in general terms but particularly, a specific world i.e sheeps in its integral aspect.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God loves the world. It don’t imply the whole people bec he hates hopeless sinners, as it say,
For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
Thus world or the whole world god loves to whom he meant jesus as propitiation for sins is not all people. Its not all that jesus died for but for many only! Bec others, he hate.
For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Some say, many means the whole world!
Lets resolve it through logic.
Would god intend forgiveness to those who have no hope of redemption?
There are hopeless sinners, without hope of redemption, such as, people reserved for damnation!
2 Peter 2:3-9
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
These are the people God hates as they are hopeless and no chance for redemption, thus applying logic, god won’t offer them forgiveness through jesus blood bec they are hopeless and damned already.
He don’t forgive them thus the blood of jesus is not for them.
And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.
Would god be so stupid?
Let us say, a person who is impossible to walk, an amputee, would you offer him a walk?
Much so, hopeless sinners without chance of redemption, would god offer redemption, through jesus blood?
He is not, crazy!
Thus, when god said, jesus blood was for the propitiation of sins of the whole world, the whole world there is not all people. Who are the whole world christ died for?
The predestinated sons of god, his sheep!
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
2 Thessalonians 2:13
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
That is the whole world, the world which is specific of gods children. This is the world god loves as stated in john 3:16 to whom was intended the blood of jesus!
