Jesus will save all humans

Having been raised in church I’ve finally realized I am not a Christian. Even though I try to follow Jesus, I can’t call myself a Christian. My beliefs are far from what anyone might call Christian. I don’t believe any religion or belief has the power to save anyone. I know Jesus is the One who saves.

I wanted to share these Scriptures which very clearly indicate that Jesus will redeem all human beings:

John 12:30-32

John 12:30-32 New International Version (NIV)
30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted up[a] from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

Jesus versus Idols

I confess I have a tendency to make an idol out of almost anything. By that I mean I will put that thing I want above other more important things. Money is a good example, I will try to get and keep money at the expense of almost any other area of my life. If someone needed something from me, well I had to work so I couldn’t help.

I don’t see that when I read about the life of Jesus in the bible. Although it doesn’t say much about His life before He started His ministry, is it possible there was a time in Jesus’ life that work kept Him too busy to help someone? Did that happen on one occasion or many? In my own life I know it happens all the time.

Jesus is the reason this website exists

I need to shift gears here a little. I’ve been running and maintaining this website for many years. It has always been my strong desire to use this as a platform to discuss Jesus.

I met Jesus about 2 and a half years after graduating college. I had a very high GPA during school and was expected to be successful immediately after graduation. My trust in my education was severely misplaced, I was unable to find work for 2 and a half years in Michigan during a severe recession. My illusions of grandeur were shattered and I felt like my life was completely worthless.
