Universal Salvation is a mockery of grace and justice.
This is the second in a 4 part series on the errors of Universal Salvation. It's vitally important that we understand how this heresy violates Scripture and the character of God.
We Christians deserve hell but receive eternal life.
Does that mean that God is not completely just? Does he break the rules for us?
The full price for our sins is paid. By Jesus.
God is perfectly, thoroughly, completely, sacrificially just.
We believe and receive.
Universal Salvation asks God to deny His justice and save unrepentant men who reject Christ’s sacrifice.
That’s something He can’t do.
Some folks say a "good" God would never send men to hell.*
But I've never heard anyone say that a "good" judge never sends men to jail.
Our arguments against God’s justice show our lack of wisdom. We don't want criminals on our streets, but we're fine if unrepentant, unbelievers walk the streets of gold with us. Would that really be heaven?
I’m so glad that we have a gracious, loving heavenly Father who has made a way for foolish souls like us to be saved and all He asks is that we believe.
* If we care about the eternity of unsaved men and women, we will share Christ with them. This is God's desire. The final words of Christ on earth urged us to do this: Matthew 28:18-20
