Saviour of All Fellowship
December 2004

Dear Friends in Faith,
     We are always happy to get mail and e-mails from those of you who read the newsletter. It is encouraging to know that your faith and joy is increasing. As many of you know, Joseph Kirk started the Saviour of All Fellowship, along with his very supportive wife many years ago. He was able to promote the happy truths of the faith by means of radio and tracts. So I thought I’d let Mr. Kirk give a word on a passage of Scripture we all hold dear:
     He writes in the tract: “Will All Mankind Be Constituted Righteous Through Jesus Christ?” “Consequently, then, as it was through one offense for all mankind for condemnation, thus also it is through one just award for all mankind for justifying of life. For even as, through the disobedience of the one man, the many were constituted siners, thus also, through the obedience of the One, the many shall be constituted righteous” (Romans 5:18,19 Concordant Literal New Testament).
     “Two persons, two acts, and two results affecting the entire human race are brought before us in this passage of Scripture. Adam’s disobedience and its race-wide, life-destroying result, presents a dark and distressing situation. The obedience of Jesus Christ and the race-wide, life-giving result is bright and glorious.
     “Is it not strange that the distressing part of this passage is usually believed without hesitation, but the bright and glorious part is disbelieved? Conditions and limitations are forced into the part dealing with the life and righteousness that comes to all through Jesus Christ, until its plain statements are flatly contradicted. Lack of faith in what the Scriptures clearly state, rather than lack of intelligence to grasp the meaning, has always been one of the greatest hindrances to the correct understanding of God’s word.
     “In order to understand the effectiveness and success of the saving work of Jesus Christ set forth in this passage it is only necessary to believe implicitely what is clearly stated.
     “The matter of faith or acceptance is not introduced on either side in this passage. The subject is not eonian life; neither is it the salvation of the elect. When these are being discussed, faith, and acceptance have their place.”

Yours in God’s grace and peace,
Dean Hough and Tony Nungesser
