The thing about UR is this.We believe that God is great enough to reconcile EVERYTHING back to Himself.To suggest that damage has been done that God cannot repair is an insult to God.To suggest that God does not want to repair all the damage is an insult to God.To believe that there are people who fall outside the love of God is an insult to God.People who believe in UR are not people who oppose God.They are not people who wish to have an excuse to sin.They are simply people who believe that God is greater than evil,that God is greater than sin,that God's grace is greater than man's fall.To us,to believe anything else about God is an insult to Him.
Very well said. Tried to rep you!
