TOO FAR GONE TO BE SAVED?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For the Son of man came to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Jesus continued . . . . “You examine the Scriptures carefully because you suppose that in them you have eternal life. Yet they testify about me. And you will not come to me, that you might have life.”

The scriptures declare that Christ made provision for everyone to be reconciled to GOD, and fully given right standing before HIM. To be made completely a new creature spiritually and transformed into a child of GOD.

The question remains; Why are some men unwilling to accept GOD’S gift of salvation?

Some views of this question is answered by saying it is an issue of predestination. GOD has predestined some men to be saved and some are predestine to be lost, and this is the result of HIS omniscience.

Others reject this view for there are two parts of salvation; GOD’S side, and man’s side. Based upon Christ’s sacrifice GOD has been reconciled to man, but yet man must be reconciled to GOD.

Are some too far gone to be saved? From GOD’S side the answer is NO not any, but from man’s side it would seem that some have gone too far.

Jesus spoke of some who rejected HIM and his salvation.

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stone to death those who have been sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling!”

Even as they in JERUSALEM rejected Christ, so do many today.

Yet, you have a choice. Choose Jesus this day and choose life.

There are those who are trapped in other religions, cults and philosophies. There are some who declare, they are atheists and reject Christ out right.

Are some too far gone to be saved?

The Lord is not slow about his promise, as some people understand slowness, but is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to perish, but wants everyone to repent.

But there are those whom Jesus spoke of; “And you will not come to me, that you might have life.”

Gone too far? Maybe.
