God as eternal Father reigns with care over his universe, his creatures, and the flow of human history according to the purposes of his grace. He does this in an inexplicable way that balances his perfect will with humanity’s legitimate free will. God is Father to those who become his children through Jesus Christ, and he deeply desires ALL of creation to be reconciled to him. As such, everyone (and I do mean EVERYone) can be saved.
1Timothy 2:3-4 This is good and pleases God our savior, who wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.
