Three simple steps that anyone can do

Victory in Jesus?

According to popular theology most of mankind that ever lived will be eternally lost. In fact, most preachers that I have asked put a percentage to the number saved to lost at about 10%. Some have been generous to say maybe 25% and some not so generous and say 2 to 3%. But most stick with the 10% number saved and 90% lost. The preachers that will not venture to give it a percentage will readily admit that they believe most of mankind that have ever lived will be eternally lost. Very few and I mean very few will give God the upper hand and say that they believe more will be in heaven than in hell. Then some of them attribute it to children dying and abortion. (What! its a true story, I heard it with my own ears but thats a topic for another day.)

God must be greater than these statistics show. If He is not, then He is not GOD ALMIGHTY. What a contradiction we are. We make bold claims for God’s power and the power of the Cross, but we do not believe them. We say Satan is defeated, but admit most of mankind is forever lost. We say that Jesus died for all, but say He will lose most. We say that the Good Sheppard will seek the lost sheep but He will never find most. We say that Jesus is the Savoir of the World but that the world is hopelessly lost. We say that He came to save that which was lost but than say that He will not save most of the lost. When will we own up to our double talk? Ponder the following passages as most truly believe them. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ [a minuscule number] shall be made alive.” “Where sin abounded, grace abounded [much less]” (1Co. 15:22; Ro. 5:20). Thankfully that is not how the Bible represents these verses.

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:


Think about it!

  Thanks for this blog. I will tell you one thing - that is we will be surprised by most things when we reach heaven for our thinking is so far out from Gods.

  Thanks for reading Phil. However, I'm not sure what you mean by "We're all theologians". Have a great day.

  When we comment or write about the things of God we are doing theology. Thank you. Phil

  Yes but only in the widest sense of the word for theology means the learning of God. Over thr years the word has been narrowed down to academics only who dwell, live and breathe in the rarefied atmosphere of universities.

  In a sense what you say is true but being something of an egalitarian I think anyone can be a theologian that studies God and the Word of God. Not that I would compare myself to someone like D.A. Carson, R.C. Sproul or James White but it has become my primary activity. You yourself do a very good job of revealing the truth of God's word. Thank you. Phil
