Chapter: 14.37
(Section 14: Selective Salvation)
Copyright © Michael Bronson 1998 - 2005

Amos 5:4 says, "This is what the LORD says to the house of Israel: ‘Seek me and live.’ " God instructed the whole nation of Israel to seek him. Obviously, God wanted all of the Israelites (not just some) to become believers. We know, however, not all of the Nation of Israel were believers. Therefore, we know that God wants everyone (including those who end up in Hell) to become believers. Following are many verses where God instructs us to seek Him.  The question we need to ask it this, "Why would God instruct the world to seek Him if He couldn't be found?"
