Apparently so. It's a shame. Every time someone starts a Christian discussion the URs come in to hijack it.

only those who fear the truth have to forbid other point of views

I appreciate it that both adherents of everlasting torment und universalism can post here, everybody is allowed to post his facts and every reader may judge for himself
LOL.... it is because Universalism is a false teaching, heresy ! Has nothing to do with fear.....
It is universalists fear and could not handle the reality of God's truth and therefore it had to change God's word to appease the mental health of those who adhere to it !!!

God's word, TRUTH does not need to be proven or defended by anyone.... it stands on it own !!

universalist forums allow contrary opinions, see here for example:

evangelicaluniversalist.com • View forum - Discussion Negative

whereas some "traditionalist" forums ban universalism altogether, so universalists do not fear contrary opinions; if God's truth stands on its own as I agree, there is no reason to ban or to lament about different point of views

universalism does question its own beliefs and sincerely tries to verify their belief, something which cannot actually be said about eternal tormentism, or where do eternal tormentists question their own beliefs in their own forums to verify their tenets as universalists do? - this the reason your arguments are refuted in any discussion over and over again in my opinion

We believe that we will get His fire - does that make us braver than you?

Seriously, judgment begins with the house of God - it must, for we must be His body to the earth. That's my answer to my question.

What are you living for?

Start it! I too am curious as to each person's response to that question!

IMO the problem with UR has nothing to with where/how we spend eternity as much as it teachs that everyone will be saved even if they reject Jesus. If they only took away the hell fire I would have no problem. It's all the other unbiblical theology that is the problem.

John 3:36 says quite plainly: Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him.

This one's been two pages of "denominational bashing."

June thinks two pages is enough.
