Humans were created by God in his image. By free choice humans rebelled against God and thus brought sin and death into the human race. Christ died for us to redeem us; therefore every human possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and love regardless of their past, their race, gender, religion, nationality, economic status, political disposition, sexual orientation or any other category. As per 2 Peter 3:9 and 1 Tim 2:4, I affirm that God desires everyone to be saved and that he has made every effort to bring this about without overriding human free will. Indeed, it IS possible for anyone to be saved, but God will not force a relationship with people against their will.
