UNIVERSALISM ??

The plan of God did ALL that was needed to meet God’s righteousness (an unrighteous man cannot know God)….God, through Jesus Christ’s work on the cross brought salvation to all men…BUT not all men will accept / receive this salvation. Paul said God reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ… then Paul says to: receive this reconciliation that God has provided. Not all will turn to Him for this salvation…”for all men have not faith.”

Some verses to look up:

Romans 3:28 –“a man is justified by faith..”
Romans 9:32 — (speaking of Israel in v.31) –“they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law.”
Romans 13:5 –“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith..”
Galatians 3:8-9 –“God would justify the heathen through faith…”
Galatians 6:10 –“do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”
Ephesians 2:8–“For by grace are ye saved through faith…”
2 Thessalonians 3:2 –“we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith…”

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 –“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ…
verse 19: “To with, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself”
verse 20: “we pray you in Christ’s stead, BE YE RECONCILED TO GOD…”
2 Corinthians 5:21 –“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we MIGHT
be made the righteousness of God in him.”

2 Corinthians 3:14-16–“But their minds were blinded…the vail is upon their heart….when it [their heart]shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.”
