Special Salvation

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

We trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe (I Timothy 4:10).

It is often remarked by those who oppose the doctrine of universal salvation that, if God is the Savior of all men, then there is no difference between the saint and the sinner, the believer and unbeliever. Those who make this remark seem to forget that, while God is declared to be the Savior of all men, He is also said to be ESPECIALLY the Savior of the believer.

Though it is true that God is the Savior of all, yet a little more attention would teach you that all along in Scripture there is a salvation held forth as the SPECIAL PROPERTY of the believer, in which the unbeliever can have no part or lot. Though all shall be saved with an everlasting salvation, yet the believer ALONE can enjoy this special salvation.
