People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 2:4

1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved. The Scriptures uniformly represent it as the divine will that all should come to life. But he does not will to save men irrespective of the conditions of salvation. They must, in order to be saved, come unto a knowledge of the truth. In other words, must hear, receive, and obey the gospel.

Larry Brothers's comment on 2014-04-27 17:30:45:

thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven....if god wills all men to be saved then all men will be saved because eventually his will gets done on earth....the confusion in mainstream Christianity is that they don 't make the distinction between those who will be saved and those who will inherit the kingdom to live and reign with Christ on earth for 1000 years during which time all will come to the truth. Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is lord...If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is lord.....you will be saved....
