Reasons for believing in Universal Salvation through Jesus Christ

Gary Amirault:
Has there ever been here a discussion or attempt to make a list of all the reasons for believing in Universal Salvation through Jesus Christ? If not, let's start one right here. Then I'll collect all the reasons and turn it into an article. And if one already exists, someone please direct me to it. Thanks, Gary Amirault.

I'll start the list. Let's keep the answers pithy, short, clear and to the point.

Love Never Fails. 1 Cor. 13:8

Nothing is impossible with God. Mat. 19:26

God commands us to pray for all people. Why command Christians to pray for people if He plans to send them to the eternal incinerator? 1 Tim. 2:1-6

Jesus came to save the world. If He misses a single soul, He can't be the "savior of the world." 1 John 4:14 John 12:32 John 4:42

Is it "just" to consign someone to eternal punishment for finite crimes or for simply being born into a world of sin? No one was ever asked whether they wanted to be born into a world of sin and death from which very few will ever escape according to traditional Christianity.

Beloved Servant:
1 Timothy 2 (Amplified Bible)

    1 FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,

    2 For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.

    3 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,

    4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.

    5 For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

    6 Who gave Himself as a ransom for all [people, a fact that was] attested to at the right and proper time.

Beloved Servant:
John 12 (Amplified Bible)

32 And I, if and when I am lifted up from the earth [on the cross], will draw and attract all men [Gentiles as well as Jews] to Myself.

Tony N:
Christ ransomed all mankind (1 Timothy 2:6). Based upon that, God must save all mankind just based upon God's own laws of the ransom (1 Timothy 2:4).
