Jadah BynumArgumentative EssayHumphriesApril, 12, 2019Relying on theologians like Origen and St. Prosper of Aquitaine’s viewpoints on universal salvation, I will apply their thoughts and beliefs to support the argument that every human will be saved and eventually make it to heaven. Like Origen, I agree that Hell was createdfor the purpose of remediation. If God wills all men to be saved, it only makes sense that he believes that the few people who are sent to Hell are to cleanse and then eventually go to Heavento reconcile with God. This Origen describes this entire evolution as a pattern. First, humans are born subject to original sin, find spiritual growth or fall to sin, then depending on which path they choose they either go to Heaven or Hell. For those few that wind up in Hell, they can use that time down there as a way to build a personal and developed relationship with God. Using 1 1 Corinthians 15:27-28, “27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” This ties into Origen’s main beliefs withthe Trinity and further proves that subject to the Almighty, it proves all humans will be saved. Because if God is to be above all, this means he would need to save his enemies as well, hence supporting the argument that every human will be saved…eventually.
