(Section 14: Selective Salvation)
Copyright © Michael Bronson 1998 - 2005
A basic premise of selective salvation is God (long before the world was created) selected certain people to go to Heaven and the remainder to Hell. If this is true, Hell was created for these people. This, however, is not what we find in the Bible.
Matthew 25:41 says, "Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and His angels." Here we find Hell was created for the fallen angels and not for man. Hell was enlarged to accommodate the fallen human race, but it was not created originally for the human race. It seems to me if selective salvation were true, Hell would have been created for mankind.
