(Section 14: Selective Salvation)
Copyright © Michael Bronson 1998 -2005
Near the end of Joshua’s life he made the following statement, "Choose you this day who you will serve … as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15). What was the reason Joshua gave us this admonition? What was the reason he felt it was important to warn the Israelites?
Joshua knew firsthand how stubborn and rebellious the Israelites were. He knew how easily they could be led astray. Joshua understood the children of Israel were prone to reject God and His laws.
If selective salvation is true, all of our choices and actions have been preprogrammed. Our spiritual destiny has been set in stone. There is nothing we can do to alter this. If selective salvation is true, there would be no need for Joshua’s admonition. The very fact Joshua made this admonition indicates to me selective salvation can’t be true.
