Distinguishing the Saved and the Unsaved
My question is about judgment day and how many people are saved. Is there a large difference between the number who find the right road in Matt. 7:12-14 and those who do not, or is the difference in number between those who do and those who don't extremely large? Also, what is true difference between these two groups?
Here is how I would state the whole matter "in a nutshell":
1) How many are saved? ANSWER: Very few indeed:
2) How are they saved? ANSWER: By God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ:
3) What is the difference between the saved and the unsaved? ANSWER: The saved are willing to repent and come to God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ; the unsaved are unwilling to repent and unwilling to come to God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ:
4) What is the difference in the eternal state of the saved and the unsaved? ANSWER: A very great difference - the difference between eternal life and the second death:
The differences between the saved and the unsaved are great in every way, for this is the difference between the few and the many, between the believers and the unbelievers, between those who are obedient to God and those disobedient to Him, between the living and the dead. And the fundamental basis for all these critical differences is a person's attitude to Jesus Christ. Those who follow Him in faith and obedience throughout their lives are saved and will live forever with Him in a glorious future of eternal life. Those who reject Him will not but will come into judgment instead.
