"For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life"
Many people mistakenly quote the above scripture to show, or prove
that God Loved every person born into this world. If this is true, then
why would anyone ever be eternally lost, and damned to hell?
Romans 8:35-39 Who
shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or
distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are
accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are
more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded,
that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor
powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of
God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Apostle Paul in writing the above declares that basically there is
nothing that can separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ
Jesus our Lord. Yet, the same people who teach that God Loved each and
every creature person born into this world can, and will be separated
from God in hell, if they do not do something in order to receive him.
That something can be as simple as saying a prayer or asking for Him to
come into their heart. However if one dies without ever believing on Jesus Christ as their personal savior
then these folks teach that person is damned to everlasting hell! This
is in direct contradiction with the God-Inspired writings of Paul the
apostle. He flatly and directly refuted this false teaching that so
many millions have been deluded with for over 2000 years now.
There is nothing that can separate the object of God's Love from
Him! Therefore if God so Loved the world
then that world will never
be separated from him! If the object of God's Love were to be finally
lost and separated from Him, then the Lord Jesus Christ died and was
resurrected in vain and we have no hope. I am so thankful that we are
not saved from eternal damnation based on anything we may or may not do
in this life!
