If God so loved the world, would it be possible that all his people, sinners or saints, will be saved? I just read an article from this site and it seems to be very intriguing. http://ores2000.blogspot.com/2010/02/heaven-can-exist-without-hell.html All sinners here, criminal and maniac..what do you think? I guess the righteous ones would not agree with this...

If we are able to repent our past misdeeds, I'm sure God, being the Almighty One, will forgive us all and save us from eternal turmoil. On the other hand, I believe we have to suffer more or less because of our own wrongdoings. God may want us to learn our lessons first, and vow never to repeat our mistakes, before He renders us His helping hand.

Okay, it's up to God's hands then. Now are we saying that God would still have to weigh the person whether he is worthy to be damned or not. That said, it would make God's love conditional. But His love, as we were taught, isn't conditional... it surpasses all kinds of love.

True, God's love is unconditional. But, haven't we heard of the saying often that in order to be helped (by God), first help yourself? We are mortal beings, and our compassion and wisdom is far far inferior as compared to God. I'm sure He has His way of guiding His lost children from doom to salvation. Just believe in him and salvation shall be within our grasp.

This actually depends on what people believe and different religion as well. For me, as a Catholic, I do believe that it is indeed possible, only if people would learn to accept their mistakes and sins and repent to God and as forgiveness, nothing is really impossible. As what Catholics believe, God is a just and forgiving God, so if there is love, He will save us all.

But what is being said here is that even those who would not repent, will they still be damned in hell? God loves everyone...

Well, for my own opinion, if that's the case then not all will be saved and i do know God loves everyone. Thinking of it, it really depends on what people believe, there are a lot of people that were born without religion and they dont even know who God is. There are also people that doesnt even beleive in religion or God, Himself. Won't it be unfair to those who grew up without knowing what faith is?

I guess some people just invented hell to make the world fair, to justify their being self righteous. You who have knelt all day long, prayed all night long, and sacrificed everything, while others were enjoying all forms of sins, wouldn't it be not too tempting to create a place like hell.

God made the world so He loved it, but possibly not all His people will be saved. Only those who follow His teachings and commandments till the end will be saved.

So meaning, His love is conditional. Only those who would love Him will be saved. Can't God also not save those who doesn't want to be saved?

God have many conditions for us to do and be saved to enter the kingdom of heaven.

That is what all religions preach about "God's Love". Honestly, I do not have any answer to this question until I fully understand who God is. I am still searching for my answer! Meanwhile, I will follow my HEART in whatever I do to keep myself and all loved ones happy and safe.

yes! as long as you will accept HIM as your GOD and say sorry of all what you've done bad. He's always forgave us, every time we committed sins. nothing is impossible with HIM, just trust in Him and do good according to his will.
