Does Revelation 22:15 contradict the whole point of what Jesus died on the cross for (the sins of mankind)? Did not he die for all sins?
Revelation 22:15 "But Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie."
Ok if all these people are going to hell, what did Jesus die for?

No. Jesus suffered an infinite punishment for sin in the quiet hours before his arrest. Its agony was so intense that blood seeped from his pores and ran like sweat. But despite it being an infinite sacrifice, he can't save us in our sins. Nobody can. We have to avoid murder entirely and repent of our other sins if we want Christ to intercede for us with God and with justice.

Jesus died for all those who believe in Him and repent of their sins.
Those listed in Revelation 22:15 have not repented and will pay the price for their sins.
John 3:16“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.”

Yes he did, but he also knew that some would choose to deny/oppose him.Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

Jesus died so that all MIGHT be saved
not so that all definitely would be saved.

The resources are available but one has to accept the terms to receive salvation. The things listed in Revelation 22:15 are inconsistent with the requirement of repentance.

This Scripture does not contradict the reason Jesus died. Sin came into the world because of Adam. We had nothing to do with that. Humans have been given laws and principles so as to know right from wrong and to live their lives doing good to the best of their ability. All sins that humans commit "deliberately and are unrepentant" will not be forgiven. As we are all prone to sin in either word or action, we pray for forgiveness and are to be forgiven if we are praying from our heart always trying to do better and wanting to make God's heart glad. Satan was the very first liar and that lie brought the human family to what we see today. Do you see even one family on earth that is truly happy with everything in their life? Every family has some kind of heartache. I invite you to learn how the Bible is helping families cope and endure the heartaches they face. You can learn what the Bible teaches if you go to the international website, www.jw.org and Bible Teachings > Online Lessons. Thank you for this question.

When Jesus died on the Cross it was to pay the sin debt for all mankind but it is up to the sinner whether or not to accept His forgiveness.

John doesn't say they're going to Hell. He knew nothing about Hell. You know why? It's because the concept of Hell did not enter into Christianity until the 5th century. After that words like sheol, Tartarus, Hades began to be translated as Hell.
