Universalist Quote of the Day #2

“But the question comes up, in what sense is God the Savior of all men? Or what are the evils from which he saves them? I answer, from death and the darkness of the grave, through the resurrection from the dead. The salvation is for all, the saint and the sinner, the believer and the unbeliever. So the Savior said, ‘Of all the Father hath given me I will lose nothing, but will raise it up again on the last day.’ So also the Apostle said, “As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.’

“This salvation is unconditional, and is uniformly so represented in the scriptures. Human agency cannot effect it, nor does it, or can it upon any thing that man can do, or believe, or upon the strength of man in any sense of the word.”

–Rev. I.D. Williamson, An Exposition and Defence of Universalism, in a Series of Sermons Delivered in the Universalist Church, Baltimore, MD. New York: Universalist Book Establishment, 1840: 167.
