1 John Four: So…

Posted: October 14, 2011 in 1 John

1 John 4:14 ESV

“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.”

Universalists love this verse because it teaches, it would seem, a worldwide salvation. But of course we don’t believe that all men are saved.

So…either one doesn’t need to save to be a Savior, or Jesus failed His mission, or the word “world” does not mean every human being to ever live.
