Why Would Anyone Want to Be Saved?

Justin Johnson

If Christianity makes a person as ignorant as is often portrayed, then why anyone would want to be saved is beyond my comprehension.

If salvation results in people becoming more superstitious, insecure, emotional, and circumstance driven, then it seems very unprofitable for our own well being and those around us.

If being saved meant more condemnation unless we abide to a list of do’s and don’ts, then it sounds like being saved would not be worth it.

If Christianity means spending countless hours studying an ancient book merely written by men, then there are a lot better things you can do with your time than to consider salvation.

If Christianity is just a cultural creation of some ancient Hebrews, then why would anyone want to be saved?

If there are many paths to the same God, even if you think that the same God is the God of the Bible, then why would anyone want to be saved?

If the gospel stops us from thinking and requires acceptance of blind faith, then why would anyone want to be saved?

If spiritual growth is no different than daily inspiration and improving yourself then why would anyone want to be saved when we’ve got Oprah?

If God were a god of bitterness, anger, injustice, cruelty, hate, and death, then let’s by all means be anti-god.

If God’s word did not accurately describe reality, then why would anyone want to be saved?


If Bible believing Christianity is based on sound doctrine that can be understood, then it is reasonable.

If the Bible is truly God’s words, then it should be the most revered and cherished book in all history.

If the Bible creates more secure, well-informed, stable individuals, then it is exactly the medicine that is needed.

If Biblical Christianity is the true revelation of joy, hope, peace, and righteousness, then salvation in Christ is the only political campaign we should accept.

If God is a god of holiness, truth, righteousness, virtue, and every thing our politicians are not, then why wouldn’t we want to be saved and serve him?

If salvation is the start of the knowledge of the truth, then God was right that salvation is what this world needs most (1 Tim 2:4).

If “God has appointed a day in the which he will judge the world in righteousness” (Acts 13:31), then we all need to be saved from our unrighteousness.

Everyone Needs Salvation

If what most people see as Christianity is true, then why would anyone want to be saved. We need better representation. We need the right Bible rightly divided presented with the right heart.

There are a lot of fakes and flukes that call themselves Christianity, but there is only one Biblical Christianity. It requires you rightly divide the word of truth. You need to find it out and be fully persuaded in your own mind (Rom 14:5).

Every reason not to be saved is a lie. Let God be true and every man a liar (Rom 3:4).

The truth is that there will be a day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to Paul’s gospel (Rom 2:16). Without salvation the world will perish. That Christ died for your sins, and resurrected from the dead so that he could freely give you grace, righteousness, and eternal life is the gospel that saves.

If you have trusted the power of God unto salvation, which is the gospel, then you have received the love of the truth and know why everyone should be saved in Christ.
