Universalist Quote of the Day #62

“The living God ‘is the Savior of all men, especially of those that believe.’  Of the common salvation all mankind shall be made partakers.  That salvation consists in the deliverance of the whole creation from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.  All shall be raised through Jesus Christ from sin, death and corruption, and made equal unto the angels of God in heaven.  ‘For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive.’  And this heavenly and immortal life of which all shall partake in the resurrection-state, is the common or universal salvation.

But in addition to all this, believers in Christ experience a special salvation, which comes through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth–and which is enjoyed in this present life, where faith is exercised–and not in the future world where there will be no faith, and consequentially no salvation by faith.”

–Rev. Asher Moore, Universalism, the Doctrine of the Bible.  Philadelphia: J.H. Gihon, 1847: 191.
