If Calivin is right, and all men are saved forever at the point of salvation - how does that affect life from then on?
Life has more purpose and more value when seen from the viewpoint that no matter what I cannot be lost, and even if I sin or fall - it doesn't matter. One thing I have always stuggled with is depressio which was usually brought on by a feeling of not measuraing up, making mistakes and the loss of love/salvation from God.
What sort of God does that? I fail - then get punished forever? Fear is not healthy, and detracts from the message of God rather than spread and improve it.
No - God does NOT love everyone. But rather He has chosen those whom He will save. I am assured of my salvation and nothing can take that away.
