Universal Salvation by Logical Deduction

The argument:

1. God will raise up all those who are bowed down before him (Psalms 145:13-14)
2. Eventually all people will bow themselves before God (Romans 14:11)
C. Therefore God will eventually raise up all people into good standing with him

The Scripture:

1.) “Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.” – Psalms 145:13-14

2.) For it is written, “‘As I live,’ says the Lord, ‘to me every knee will bow. Every tongue will confess to God.'” – Romans 14:11

This is a deductive argument based on scripture. The truth of these passages cannot be denied by any serious believer, they are central to the faith of both Jews and Christians. If both passages are true the deductive argument stands. God raises up “all” those bowed before him and “all” people will in fact bow before him.

This argument can be further defended by the following passage:

“Now is the judgment of this world. Now the prince of this world will be cast out. And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”- John 12:31-32

The Greek word helkó (draw) literally means “drag” (Strong’s 1670). In other words Christ was saying that if he rises from dead he is going to literally drag all people to himself.

Did Christ rise from the dead? Is Christ going to drag all people to himself as he said he would? I believe so.
