Save Us All (Part 3)

I thought it would be a good idea to end my “Save Us All” series at the third installment, thus making it a trilogy (like The Dark Knight or The Matrix … hmm…).

Anyway…

I think many of you might be surprised that after writing 2 lengthy essays arguing for “God-Wants-to-Save-Us-All” (sorry, just couldn’t come up with a theological term for it), I actually think the issue is quite irrelevant in God’s grand scheme of things.

The truth is, we can argue till the Second Coming of Christ, but it will not make an iota of difference to anybody’s salvation.

I mean, even if I am wrong (though I believe I am not), and indeed God only save those He elected… so what? Practically speaking, since none of us will ever know who are the chosen ones, and we have no way to tell, why worry about it?

After all, (I trust) the evangelists will not stop sharing God’s words with everyone they meet, the preachers will not stop inviting every sinners who come to their churches up for altar call and the apologists will not stop challenging every wrong doctrines/beliefs they encounter.

And  if I am right… again, so what? We will still be doing the same things as above!! 

I think the a pertinent question is not whether God has chosen you to be saved, but rather… is your salvation assured (assuming you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, of course)? Let’s see what Jesus said:

My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. (John 10:29)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 8:38-39)
