Godly is understanding and accepting God's omnipotence and His sovereignty. We should just believe the truth.

We should be telling people about Jesus and how they can be saved NOW. The Bible teaches not everyone will be saved.

Doesn't believing only a few shall be saved kind of discourage you from sharing the gospel some what .Also doesn't it cause you to be just a little exclusive ? thinking you are one of the few.

Would be nice if someone answered the question on the thread .

To believe that God will NOT save everyone is to believe that God gave people life for the purpose of destroying them forever since God knows the END from the beginning. It also would mean that Jesus fails to save the World and that SIN will get a HOME (call Hell) and that SIN will have everlasting dominion over its subjects.

Let's face the TRUTH here. Anyone that believe that God will not save everyone MUST believe that God does not desire to save everyone OR that God is unwilling to save everyone. The scriptures plainly refute both views:

1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

That verses shows that God does indeed desire to save all men.

2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

That verse shows that God is not willing that any should perish.

So if God desires to save all men and is NOT willing that ANY should perish then it is IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to NOT be saved. The result is UNIVERSAL SALVATION.

These scriptures refute any contrary assertion.

Paul

Just the opposite, it encourages me to tell people about Jesus, so people can get saved before it's too late. Exclusive, no way, Jesus died for everyone, not just a few.

What was the point in dying for everyone, when only a few believe/are saved ?

Jesus would have for just me or just you if we were the only people who were going to believe.

Well i am thankful ILNC it's not just about you and me(i know you are not saying that) , i am overwhelmed by His wonderful love that will cause all men to bow the knee and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

I still wish that someone would answer the question in the title of the thread.
