Just to clarify.  I do not hold the position of universal salvation.  After
review of this paragraph, I can see how someone might misconstrue it that
way.  My apologies to the list for not sticking with the grammar of MALISTA,
but I thought that the explanatory paragraph would help clarify what I was
trying to say regarding MALISTA itself (i.e. set, subset, etc.).

>So to apply to 1 Tim.4:10, the set is "men for whom God is savior" but the
>subset is "men for whom God is savior who believe."  So I am arguing that
>the idea here is that God is the only actual savior (i.e. the act of
>salvation [the cross, etc.] was accomplished *for* both) for both
>non-believers and believers, but believers are especially saved because
>have accepted that act.  This puts both non-believing men and believing men
>in the same broader category, the category of "men for whom God is savior."
