Christ Can Save All God provided a way for all mankind to be

saved. The Bible says "For God so loved the world that He gave His

only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish

but have everlasting life" -John 3:16

God sent His son Jesus to the earth as a man to take the

punishment of sin for ALL mankind. Jesus was perfect so he could

take the punishment for others' sins. Jesus suffered a cruel death

on the cross but three days later he rose from the dead. Since he

died and rose from the dead we can ALL be saved. Now, ALL mankind

CAN be saved but it is each individual's choice whether they will

accept God's gift of salvation. It is common knowledge that not

everyone believes what God says in the Bible, thus, there are some

who will never be saved. Unfortunately God cannot allow sin into

heaven so those who do not accept His salvation will have to

receive their punishment in hell. So it is vital that ALL accept

God's gift of salvation so they may escape hell and live in heaven

forever with the Lord! Not all "Many be called but few chosen"

(Matthew 20: l6).

Answer:

Yes. Jesus can save all that will believe in Him and renounce

sin and follow Him (his lead). If he was unable to save all would

He be God? It is God's desire that no one is lost not one.

Unfortunately, many (my personal belief) will be lost because

they will not believe and follow.

Note that it also depends on what you mean by "save". We are

taught that "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be

made alive." (1 Cor 15:22) --- so all will be resurrected and saved

from physical death. On the other hand, what happens AFTER that

depends on their relationship with Christ. If they reject him, they

will essentially die a second, spiritual death, being cut off from

God for all eternity - to wit - damned. Those who are not thus cut

off will be saved from this second, spiritual death and be "saved"

in that respect.

It is a tenet of Christian belief that Christ was sent to save

all mankind.
