*Universalism- Doesn’t the Bible teach all will be saved because of Jesus’ death on the cross?

The salvation offered by Jesus Christ is NOT Inclusive. In John 10:9-14 Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” Jesus himself said “if you enter ANY OTHER WAY you are a thief and a robber

The danger of universalism is that it gives someone a false sense of security about their afterlife.

The Bible consistently teaches that we are saved by grace THROUGH faith, not just grace, not everyone is an automatic recipient of salvation by Jesus Christ’s work on the cross (Eph.2:8-10). We must do something, and that something is to believe, after God draws an individual and they have a revelation of the truth, their sinful condition they must by and act of their will place faith in Christs work. One must believe to be saved.

John the apostle writes in his gospel 1:11-12 “but as many as receive him, to them he gave the right (power) to become children of God, to those who believe on his name.” If one does not receive him they are not children of God. “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus” Galatians 3:26-28)

2 Cor. 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” The only way in to Christ is by Spirit baptism, it was Jesus who said, “except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”  (John 3:3). 

Jesus said Mt. 7:13-15: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Jesus is not saying all will make it, not even many but few find it.

We know not everyone will be saved because In Matthew 13:49 Jesus said, “This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous.” Again, two classes are mentioned - unbelievers and believers spoken of as the wicked and the righteous, the godly and ungodly.
