How can Christ be the saviour of the world?
How can Christ be the saviour of the world? It has been estimated that there have been about 160 billion people who have lived and died from Adam until the present. It has also been estimated that only about 5 billion of these people have been believers in Jesus Christ. If God starts out with 160 billion people and loses 155 billion of them to eternal torture, how can we say that God who is love, is victorious
Powerful question Swordman, let me try to explain this but it is a hard topic which is difficult at best. God created the Earth and brought Adam upon it. Later he and Eve sinned, separating us from God who will not allow sin into his presence. Later men had to spill blood of animals to pay for the sin, because the sin was only payable in death. Going further, one might say that God set unrealistic expectations on us, and therefore could not truly love us. But belief by Christians around the world is that God could no longer deal with the concept of losing so many people, and he came to Earth in form of Jesus Christ, lived, died and rose again so that we might have a chance to live with him. The Bible does admit that many will choose not to accept the Gift of Christ, but it is an offer for all men. Those who died before Christ were hopefully "paid in full" by the sacrifices of animals. I can understand why God admitted this wasn't enough, and gave the Son in the place of man, really there is nothing that we could do that would equal what God did. God is love, but he is also wrath, he is judgement, not by our standards but by his. I will tell you this one thing with total understanding. God never plans to see anyone parish, he only gives an eternity of separation from God to those who never wanted to be with him in this life. Why if they don't want to be with Him now would want to be with him later.
Christ is the Savior because God who is Almighty, merciful and full of love was separated from His creation because of our sinfulness. He is holy and can not tolerate sin, but as a Father loves his wayward and rebellious child, God loves us, and He wanted to reconcile us to Him and free us from the bondage of our sins, so He sent His son to come and take all our sins upon Him and be crucified in our place, so that everyone who believes in Him can be saved. It is our choice though. God will never take away our free choice. He wants us to come to Him of our own accord, washed clean by the blood that was shed for us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. God is victorious! The battle has already been fought and Jesus holds the keys to life and death. We are victorious too, when we stand united with Him.
Thank you for your responces. Now I have more questions to ask, because sadly, I didn't find the answers here, but thank you anyways.

Is Christ Jesus the saviour of all mankind, or just some?A savior is someone who has saved or will save, not someone who offers salvation.
