Admitting that Salvation by Faith is true, and that there will be a Judgment of works, both sides look at the issue mostly from man's point of view. Both sides (almost all men) assume they (man) is the most important variable in the equation, but he is not. There is a more important consideration. It is the viewpoint of the Father. We get so focused on seeing through our own eyes that we don't consider the Father's view. What does He want and need?

He says that salvation AND damnation (judgment) are BOTH for His purpose. The saints serve his purpose but so do the sinners. All fit into His ultimate plan, His exoneration, His reunion with all creation and His restoration as Father of ALL.

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 2 Timothy 1:9

If those called are for His purpose, those NOT called must also be for His purpose because He purposely chose NOT to call them. What about those NOT chosen?

Ye have not chosen me, but I [Jesus] have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:16

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Ephesians 1:11

(For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of יהוה [Yahweh, our god] according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) ... For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Romans 9:11,17

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love יהוה [Yahweh], to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Yahushua answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of Elohim should be made manifest in him. John 9:2-3

Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. Isaiah 54:16

Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme. 1 Timothy 1:20

The righteous are saved to glorify the Father:

Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. Isaiah 60:21

Even spiritual blindness is for His purpose:

(According as it is written, יהוה [Yahewh] hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? By no means: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles... Romans 11:8-11

How could God show mercy if everyone was sinless? or faithful?

For יהוה [Yahweh] hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. Romans 11:32

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Master Yahushua. 1 Corinthians 5:5

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? Ecclesiastes 3:1-9
