Yes, He is the Savior of the World. If he does not save, then he has failed to do what he was commisioned to do.

Fundamentalists believe that 90% of humanity will reject Jesus' offer and thus be condemned to hell for all eternity. How is that being the "Savior of the world"? Sounds like a much bigger victory for satan and an equally bigger failure for Jesus to me.

Yes, in a certain sense. Is a river of water enough to quench a man's thirst? Of course. It's more than enough.

And yet a thirsty man must drink, and continue to drink if he is to avoid dying of thirst in the end. To be saved a man has to accept the gift of God and cooperate with grace.

"... with fear and trembling work out your salvation. For it is God who worketh in you, both to will and to accomplish, according to his good will." - Phil 2:12-13

For me and all the world if all the world accepts his gift of salvation. No for the people who reject him. For, as far as I know, Gentiles what he did is saving by grace for the Jewish it's saving by accepting his gift of salvation and by works.

Yes...if we actually take his teaching to heart and follow in his footsteps...that means to actually DO what he taught us to DO!

No, of course. No one claims that Jesus saved anyone; he gave us the opportunity to save ourselves.

Meaningless question, especially if the salvation is from an endless torment. There is no such hell, God does not torture people even for a little while, far less eternally, therefore there is no "salvation" from something that doesn't happen.

I think the OP is getting at the belief that one must do more than just believe, in order to avoid that (fictitious) Hell. For example, repent and turn from a life of sin.
