John 3:16, “ 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.”

The Bible teaches that WHOSOEVER may be saved. The invitation for salvation is extended to all humanity. Jesus died for all men. 1st John 2:2, “And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” What a wonderful Savior! As our text verse, John 3:16 states, God loved THE WORLD. That includes all humanity. Jesus died for everyone, even the vilest sinner. To claim otherwise is to argue with the plain teachings of the Scripture.

God loves humanity with an unconditional love (John 3:16). It is also true that God's wrath abideth on Christ-rejecters (John 3:36). Many people have a difficult time understanding how God can love someone, while being angry with them at the same time, but that is exactly what the Bible teaches. Just because God will one day cast the wicked into Hell doesn't mean that He doesn't love them. It is sad that so many religious people are filled with hatred against sinners. It is only because of one's self-righteousness that they hate and condemn others as being a worse sinner than them self. If you truly understand the Scriptures, and see yourself in Light of the Law of God, then you can only conclude that you are the biggest sinner you know (James 2:10).

2nd Peter 3:9 informs us that the sole reason why Jesus Christ hasn't returned yet, i.e., the Rapture of the Church, is to allow more people to repent and come to God. 2nd Peter 3:9, “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, but that all should come to repentance.” I've read numerous online forums—which really have become a form of evil on the internet, where people roast, slander and destroy other people—desiring for sinners to burn in Hell. Nothing could be further from Biblical Christianity. If you desire for anyone to burn in Hell, then you are not right with God in your heart. Certainly, we rejoice as believers in the thought that Judgment Day is coming for the wicked; yet, we have a sorrow in our heart that anyone would go to Hell and suffer forever.

John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Carefully notice that John 3:36 DOESN'T say that God hates the unsaved. Rather, it says that God's wrath abideth upon them. There's a big difference! There are people that I don't like, because they are cruel and mean toward animals, and I am upset with them; but I love them in the Lord. I don't hate them. Likewise, the Bible says that God's wrath rests upon the wicked; but that in no way means that God hates them and wants them to burn in Hell. The Bible plainly teaches that WHOSOEVER may be saved.

It's not too late for the worst sinner in the world to be saved. If they still have a pulse, they can still come to Christ for forgiveness. The only unpardonable sin is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, i.e., rejecting Jesus Christ as one's Savior (Matthew 12:31). It is the Spirit of Christ that draws all men to be saved (John 12:32); but if you reject God's dealing with your heart, and refuse to be saved, then you have no one to blame except yourself. If you reject Jesus Christ, then there is NO other way to Heaven. You have chosen your own fate and sealed your doom.

However, if you want to be saved, then simply acknowledge your guilt of sin, coming to God on the basis that you are a hell-deserving sinner, and place your trust in Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, to forgive your sins. Thus, we are saved solely by Christ's righteousness; and not by any self-righteousness of our own (Romans 4:5-6; 2nd Corinthians 5:21).

John 8:32,36, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free ... If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
