The gift of salvation has nothing to do with winning or losing teams.
Salvation is a fact, being part of the Son's millenium Kingdom is not.

Are you in God's team? I know people who don't want to be in His team.

Why is Christ called "the LAST Adam?"

Does anyone here know why Christ = Adam??

When you think of "Adam," who are you thinking of, the First Adam, or the Last Adam?

Adam 1: total pollution of the human race. 100 percent.

Adam 2: ???


Blessings,
brian

I'm sure every Christian whatever his/her denomination is really seeking. Obviously not all are in the winning team/denomination. Many are blinded. The problem with being blinded is that we don't know because we are blinded
So my answer to your question is: Only the Judge knows.

The Bible is clear only few (the elect) are in God's team.
Some say that will never change.
Others say that eventually everyone is in His team.

Personally, I think Adam is winning.

Think of all the people who name their sons Adam. How often do you find a son named Christ?

Adam was here first. That's why everyone wants to be first. People raise their fingers in the air and cry, "We're number 1".

Because Adam ate from the tree.
Jesus cursed the fig tree.
Damage undone

Who said anything about denominations? Denomination has nothing to do with it. Anyone who wants to be in God's team, can be in His team. Everyone is invited, and all we need to do is show up.

Depends on how He sees team memebers I think. The demons Jesus end ito the pigs also showed up. They knew who Jesus was. Satan is also well aware who Jesus is. Are they team members? A lukewarm Christians team members? Are Christians that slander His name on daily basis team members?
