The aim of this study is to see the father’s heart toward all who are lost, our responsibility and our response to the love of God. This scripture can be applied to backsliding believers or to heathens or unsaved people. We want to know what God says about backsliders and heathens. Does God give them a second chance or nth chance? The prophets of old have depicted God’s heart for the lost and so did the apostles, the reason we analyse it from Jesus’ view is to stop all contradictions.
For some might want to discard what the prophets or the apostles wrote but at least if they hear that from the mouth of Jesus, it might settle their heart on this issue. For Jesus said: he only says what the Father tells to Him, and teaches what the Father teaches Him, as He hears, he declares it to us (John 5:30, John 7:16-17, John 8: 28, John 8:38). So if Jesus said it concerning unsaved people or backsliders, it was the Father’s and the Holy Spirit’s will too, for they are always in agreement.
