Can we ever be separated from God?
"Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me." Psalm 139: 7-11


blessings!
brian

ps. I was just thinking today about the rich man/Lazarus story. There was a gulf between them. But Jesus came to bridge the gulf! He has the Keys!!!

I'm now more confused

So, why not say CU instead of UR?

Universalists are not a denomination. The IDEA goes by many names.

Unitarians on the other hand ARE an organized group of churches that believe you can get to God any old way you want.

"Universalists" are spread throughout the world in many different denominations, and some, like myself, are home-churched.

They have been around for many centuries. Until now they were just basically shunned (well, we are still shunned). The internet helps us out a bit; no rack, no stake, etc.

Hi Friend.

Thanx for the info, much appreciated!

People like me who believe there is ONLY one way to be saved and that is by J b F and Blood of the Lamb Atonement are called the "BRIDE of CHRIST". Are we known as B o C ? [Bride of Christ] or what?
