“This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus…” 1 Timothy 2:4–5 ESV

Brady said that this verse teaches that we can be both hopeful universalists and humble preachers of Christ Jesus. We should hope that all people believe, empathize with people who cannot, and ultimately rest in the authority of Scripture alone. Consider how this might change your conversations with non-Christians.
