Hello I went on your website and saw you believe in OSAS
[they mention they do not believe in OSAS, which is false, since you cannot lose your salvation]
also in the belief of everyone being saved

not trying to be judgemental, im genuinely curious

but the reason i disagree is with 1 corinthians
so at the end of the day my understanding, people willing [roblox censored this part]
Therefore, I reply with the following:
Hi my friend! :D No worries, I enjoy discussing the Bible :) I’ve talked about this stuff online for years, so I’m familiar with answering questions such as yours <3
Proverbs 27:17 Agreed. Where there is a group of believers, there is already a church and God is with us. Matthew 18:20. We are all made in the image of God after all.
In terms of my age, I try not to reveal that information online. It’s nothing personal, that’s just my policy in general. I have been impersonated in the past and had my email hacked, so I’m cautious with how much personal details I share online, in order to protect my family.
For OSAS (once saved always saved), I believe it is true as the Bible says that all people who believe in Christ with faith alone gain the Holy Spirit. A spiritual baptism, where all their sins are washed away. (physical baptism is not necessary for salvation at all).
Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
1 Corinthians 12:13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
These sins are permanently removed, as the Holy Ghost remains in the believer. That’s the Lord’s seal of approval on us, that we are counted as righteous like Abraham. (Romans 4:3).
Ephesians 4:30 the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Who can remove that seal? Who can remove God? Who is stronger than God? Nobody. OSAS shows that the Lord is Almighty. Each believer is thus a spiritual temple, who can destroy the Spirit of God? Nobody. Thus, we cannot lose our salvation. When a person is saved, they are permanently saved :D
Luke 15:24 he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate.
That’s why someone goes from “lost” to “found” when they are saved. The Holy Ghost found them, and dwells in them. The Lord does not loose His believers. That is the Victorious Gospel.
Luke 15:4: "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?"
Which leads to Universal Reconciliation. We are the sheep, my friend. The Lord has created 100% of all creation (John 10:27). Therefore, the Lord will continue to save people until not just 99% are saved, but until that very last 1% is saved too. All in all.
1 Corinthians 15:22-28 All will be made alive in Christ, but each in his own turn and ultimately Christ will subdue all His enemies, eliminate death and God will be all in all.
The wages of sin is death. God will eliminate all death. Therefore, God will eliminate all sin. How? By washing away the sins of the whole world. Eventually, all people will be convinced to believe in Christ and be saved. All enemies will worship the Lord in New Jerusalem <3
Romans 11:32: "For God has consigned all to disobedience, that He may have mercy on all."
We were all once enemies of Christ, because of sin. But even those who remain enemies of Christ, aka those still with sin, even after they die, will stay in Sheol until they believe in Christ and the Holy Ghost dwells inside of them too. Even after death, they will always have the opportunity to believe and to be saved :)
Lamentations 3:31-33 For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though he may punish cruelly, yet he will have compassion in the fullness of his love; he does not willingly afflict or punish any mortal man.
Literally, the Lord does not cast off forever. No loving God would torture people in Hell forever, nor destroy them forever. Mercy triumphs over judgement. (James 2:13). So I don’t see your reply as judgmental my friend, no worries :D. I appreciate your curiosity. There was a time where I too used to believe in forever conscious torment in Hell, but as I studied the Bible more and more, I found that Universal Salvation through Jxsus is the truth.
Psalm 102:19-21 The Lord looked down from His sanctuary on high, from heaven He viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.
You also mention 1 Corinthians, I think you’re referring to this set of verses
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Which is true, my friend. The unrighteous do not inherit the kingdom of God at all. Sinners will not enter Heaven, because evil is still in them.
Truly, I tell you. It’s impossible for a person with sin to enter the gates of Heaven. We must be perfectly clean, completely free of every and all sin in order to go to Heaven. Absolute perfection in righteousness. And the only way to remove all sin is through faith in Christ. Therefore, Jxsus is the only way to Heaven!
How is a person made righteous? How is their unrighteousness removed? By faith alone in Jxsus, the LORD paid the penalty for all sins, which is death, and resurrected 3 days later, showing that the wages were fully paid for.
As such, everyone who believes in Christ is considered righteous and thus able to inherit the kingdom of God. Truly, they become a permanent temple of God through the Holy Ghost. All who are unrighteous remain in Sheol/Hades, the realm of the dead, as a natural consequence for the sin still in them.
1 Peter 3:19 in whom He also went and preached to the spirits in prison
Why would Jxsus preach to the souls in Sheol/Hades = prison. Because they still have the chance to believe in Christ and be saved. Who is imprisoned there? Everyone who did not believe in Jxsus while they were still alive on Earth and died before they were saved. That is their judgment, their punishment, yet mercy triumphs over judgment James 2:13 as I mentioned above.
As I mentioned in Psalm 102 though, the Lord will release those under the condemnation of death, he hears the groans of the sinners in Hades and releases them. That is God’s desire, to save everybody.
1 Timothy 2:3-6: "This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time."
And who can stop the Almighty Lord from achieving this desire? Who can thwart the Lord of Host’s plan, His promise, to save all creation?
Isaiah 14:24, 27 The Lord Almighty has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand"... For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?
Truly, I tell you, God will have absolute victory over this sinful world. All sinners made absolutely perfect by His Most Holy Blood. Everyone will worship the LORD with no more pain and no more suffering.
Thus, I agree with you my friend, when you say that people who do not have faith are not saved.
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God
That is completely true. Thus, eventually, all people will have faith in Jxsus and be saved, each in their own turn.
I hope that answered your question my friend :D I am grateful to Lord for being given this opportunity to spread this truth. After all, I was once just like you, my friend. I am just a simple human messenger, who has also discovered this truth through the Holy Scriptures. The Holy Spirit blesses you with love and understanding <3
Psalm 18:30 The way of God is perfect.
