Who Will Be Saved?

By Rob Albright

    There is a false doctrine being taught that says all mankind will be saved eternally. This is a doctrine that is not taught in the Bible.
    There is no doubt that God wants everyone to be saved. He does not want anyone to be lost eternally but notice God does desire everyone to make a change.  He is “longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9).
    God wants us to choose Him and His way of salvation, but we are told many will not make that choice (Matthew 7:13-14). So, the truth is many will be lost and few will be saved. Why?
*Because God is not respected and His Word not followed. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
*Because false doctrine has been believed. Acts 17:11
*Because many are not willing to make salvation a priority. Matthew 6:33
     The idea that everyone will be saved gives a false sense of security in anything we want to believe. The good news is that we do have a choice. May the choice be to trust in God and His Word and follow His way to the best of our ability.
