I believe God wants all saved, but that God knows the future state of all souls and many will be damned. I believe this is a paradox because we do not have minds or wisdom like God's.
I draw from Romans 11:32-36 NASB
32 For God has shut up all in disobedience so that He may show mercy to all.
33 Oh, the depth of the riches [l]both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34...

That said, I do get there are some really well meaning people here like John Piper and Ravi Zacharias. We are told...
