Aren't We Antichrist?

Jesus wasn't talking about everyone when he declared that the Son of man came to save that which was lost. The context of the declaration was the parable of the lost sheep (“sheep” singular in number). (Matthew 18:11-14)

Jesus wasn't conceding failure when he declared that none of them was lost but one. He was identifying the one he came to save. (John 17:12)

Can't we confess that the Son of man saved him? Can't we confess that such a Son of man came in the flesh?

If not, then shouldn't we count ourselves among the many who had already come into the world when John wrote his epistle? (2John 1:7)

I offer these ideas only in my own name.
