Does the Bible Teach That All Creation Will Be Saved?

Episode 293 Show Notes 

From the Show

The old age of sin and death is passing away and the new creation has dawned with Christ’s resurrection and the coming of the holy Spirit who raises sinners from spiritual death to life.

—Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. What does Paul mean in Romans 8:19–21 it sounds like he is saying that all creation will be saved but that can’t be right, can it?

2. We’ve recently had a handful of people show up to church that have recently been released from prison. I want to be sensitive to anything that could be triggering to them and really want to make sure they feel welcomed, but I know nothing about prison life or what inmates go through. I would love some general advice in this area.

3. In Romans 5:14, who are the people who did not sin? Who did not break the commands? Who is that referencing?

4.How do we take what we are learning in the Bible and keep it from becoming mere head knowledge?
