God's Desire

Submitted by Stephen Winters

"God desires that all men to be saved." If hell is true, then, either God is not powerful enough to carry out his desires, OR his desires are wishy washy meaningless dribble. Why would God desire something that He knew that He can't have? What does desire mean? is desire a choice? Is desire static or does it grow or move? Does desire indicate any movement or working towards the object of one's desire?

Does God get what he desires, or are his desires sometimes frustrated? If God doesn't get what he desires, why does he not get it? Would God desire something that he knew he couldn't have? If God is all powerful, what could possibly prevent him from obtaining his desires? Is God pure and faultless? Then would he ever desire something that shouldn't happen? If he would ever desire something that shouldn't happen, then why would he desire such a thing?

That brings us back to, "Why would God desire that all men be save if it was a bad thing?"

Many Christians believe and teach that Satan is the God of this world. Is That true? The common teaching is that “wide is the gate that leadeth to destruction, and narrow is the path the leads to….” , the common belief that goes with that is that most of mankind is going to hell.

Is God all knowing and all powerful? Does he know every event of the future, from the beginning of time to the end of time? If both of these are true, then why would God intentionally create mankind, knowing that most of them would end up in hell, being tormented and tortured forever.
