The Heresy of Universal Salvation, Part 3
It's important for Christians to fully understand this popular heresy.
Universal Salvation(1) not only requires disbelief in God’s Word, and a mockery of justice, it requires a low view of God.
God is perfect, holy, glorious.
Mankind is fallen (Romans 3:23), worthless (Romans 3:12), deserving death (Romans 6:23).
Do people believe in Universal Salvation because they have a deep love for mankind, or do they simply have a high view of man and a low view of God?
When we say a good God could not send anyone to hell, we’re saying our appraisal of goodness is better than God’s appraisal in Scripture. We're saying our finite wisdom is greater than His infinite wisdom.
Instead of being shocked God sends men to Hell, we should be shocked He allows any of us in heaven!
How can we look on the suffering of Christ and expect Him to save those who reject, ignore, or mock Him their whole lives on earth?
We have sinned against a perfect, holy, God of love, yet He offers us salvation in His Son (John 5:24).
How can we possibly think He owes us more than that?
