Are Non-Christians Lost Forever?

Posted by JLFuller on July 28, 2008

Many a pastor has shouted from the pulpit that non-believers are hell bound and will not be retrieved. But the following verses seem to contradict that notion.

John 5:25: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.”

1 Peter 3:18‑20: “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.”

1Peter 4:6: The gospel is taught to the dead so that they will be judged “according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.”

Which makes more sense – a loving God that would create billions of beings knowing they were going to suffer eternal torment for something they had no control over or a loving God who had a plan to redeem all by sacrificing His Son for the salvation of these same children including those who never heard of Him? I suggest God’s plan is self evident by the passages above.
