Pink here puts forth what I believe to be a very good case for reading 1 Cor. 15:22-28 in a non-Universalist manner. As far as I can tell, neither Talbott nor MacDonald has addressed Pink’s interpretation of this passage, and I’ve yet to find a rebuttal to Pink’s reading. If anyone is aware of such a rebuttal, or would like to put forth one, I’d like to read it.
Who are “savingly connected” to Christ? All who are unsavingly connected to Adam. (While we were enemies, Christ died for us.)
How is death defeated if most fail to enter the eternal life of God?
How is Satan defeated if most are bound forever into the kingdom of darkness?
Either God brings creative order to every drop of the primaeval ocean of chaos in which we dwell, or He fails in his promise to “make all things new”.
