Concerning a reasonable hope that all are saved.
- Hell is very full of persons – Article of Faith
- Demons, i.e. angelic persons, in hell
- Most of creation is angelic – Aquinas
- 1/3 of angel cast into hell – Revelations
- Witness of Scripture
- God’s people from among the peoples – small tribe
- The remnant
- Narrow path, many called few chosen, etc.
- Sed Contra, peoples of every tribe and nation worshiping the lamb – Revelations
- Respondio, the elect will be among all peoples, not all people will be among the elect
- Witness of Saints/Apparitions
- Not a Christian Hope
- Christian hope is certain
- This hope is uncertain/only proposed as “reasonable”
- Practical Concerns
