If Jesus Died For Everyone, Why Do Many Still Go To Hell?

In Podcasts
Scripture: 1 John 2:2
Topics: Doctrine of Justification, Contributor: Joel Webbon

If the death of Jesus is not a mere example of sacrificial love but actual atonement (the finished payment for sin), and if Jesus died for each and every individual, why do many people still go to eternal suffering in hell? It appears as though these individuals’ sins are being paid for “twice;” once by Jesus on the cross, and once by them in hell.

However, even now, Christians can be encouraged in knowing that the devil’s chief power (the “fear of death”) has been utterly stripped …

The “message declared by angels [which] proved to be reliable” was the Law of God, namely, the Ten Commandments. According to Deuteronomy 33:5, that was the day when God declared that he was “King in Jeshurun.” So God delivered his Law and announced his Kingship through Moses and angels.

No one reaches a point of sinless perfection in this life. In the same way, no one perfectly repents in this life. If you could repent perfectly, you would live perfectly. So how much repentance is necessary to prove that a person is saved?

David desires deliverance not only for his own personal welfare, but for the glory of God. David says, “In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble!” In other words, he rightly recognizes that if the Lord chooses to rescue him from his enemies, it will be due to two things: Mercy & Righteousness. Mercy toward David, because he too …

1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” In this text, it appears as though confession is a “condition” for forgiveness. So how do we reconcile this text with the idea that Christians are completely forgiven of all their sins (including future sins) …
