Why Christ Spoke In Parables?

Hi R____,
Thank you for your question.
You ask:

Your suggestion that this is not the time for all men to be saved is right on target. Christ will indeed save all. But He is not even trying to save all at this time. He is actually doing the exact opposite at this time in blinding the masses to keep them from seeing what is right there before their eyes. Not one orthodox minister can tell you why Christ spoke in parables.
It is through the few chosen at this time that God will then to bring in all the rest of mankind:

Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

Read the paper After The Counsel of His Own Will for a more in- depth coverage of this subject.
I hope that helps you to see that God is not at this time attempting to save the masses of humanity, but is in fact doing the opposite and keeping them blinded to the purpose for His parables.
Mike
