Salvation for All

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights several passages from the bible which describes ways in which to save faith and outsiders. There are three requirements in order for an individual to save his/her faith and these include conviction, trust in God, and obedience to God. The five major themes contained in Hebrews 11:6 say that a man without faith cannot please God because anyone who comes to him must first believe that he really exists and that he rewards those who seek for his name. It is also written in a verse from John's Gospel that access to God is solely through Jesus. The end of this chapter concludes that ‘God has imprisoned all in obedience so that he may be merciful to all’.
