Why Others Are Perishing?

While others claim that everyone is already saved,
God's Word says there are those who are being saved
And those who are perishing (2 Cor 2:15).
But why some would perish, if God is loving?

But God is not only loving, He is also Sovereign.
He is also Holy, Just and a Righteous King.
He can choose to unleash His wrath to the wicked
And to those He called His mercy be extended (Rom. 9:22-24).

But isn't it that His Word could be heard by all?
His written words are read by both the wise and the fool?
Consider, however, when Paul was called:
God's voice he heard and was so awed (Acts 9:4-6).

To his companions it's just a sound they heard (verse 7).
Also at the cross two criminals heard Jesus prayed,
"Father, forgive them..." (Luke 23:34.)
One of the criminals hurled insults at him.

"Jesus, remember me..." the other criminal said.
For the message of the cross others could not heed.
To those who are perishing, it's foolishness;
But to those being saved, it's Power in it's fullness (1 Cor. 1:18)!
