Does God desire all people to enter heaven?

I’ll be teaching Sunday School at Cross Community Church this week. Each week we choose a difficult ethical question about Christianity and try to deal with it from the Scriptures.

This week we will be asking the question “Does God desire that all people go to heaven?” Of course, being Reformed, we believe that God has chosen some to salvation. How then can one believe that God makes such choices and still wants all to enter heaven? This is a question that has confounded many and not an easy one to answer. If you would like to be a part of the discussion, or just sit and listen, please make your way to the Cross this Sunday morning. We would love to see you there.

If you would like to read more about this question from a Reformed standpoint a good place to start is with John Piper’s new booklet (it is only about 50 pages). You can find it here:
