Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Proposition: Scripture teaches that only the Christians who have
1. believed in Christ.
2. been baptized
3. received the Holy Spirit
4, fed on the Body and Blood of Christ
...... can be saved.
At this time that gives the possibility of salvation to only 300,000, 000 Orthodox Christians.
The population of the world today is around 6,930,000,000.
Therefore 6,630,000,000 people living today are damned..
In all justice it does appear quite wicked that God has called 6 billion souls into existence, knowing that their destiny is the eternal fires and torment of hell. Really, would it be better if He had never created them?
In other words, those who will be standing on Christ's left hand and hear "Depart from me, ye cursed..." will be virtually innumerable in comparison to the few who will be saved standing on His right.
Do we have to look for another understanding of the quoted verses?
