The
really
bad
thing
about
Universalism
is
that
it
destroys
bad
Christian
theology.

But
then,
maybe
that's
a
good
thing.

The bad thing is, it's not Biblical.

Says who?....under what authority? Please show me your authority other than your interpretation of scripture? Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses say the same thing about YOU! What makes you right and them wrong?

Speaking with authority of men proves nothing scriptural.

My authority has been given to me by my Father.

It proves nothing is right or wrong just your interpretation

Exactly, so providing who's authority someones point of view is attributed to is meaningless.

Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses say the same. What makes you right and them wrong? It's their Father too, is it not?

Amen ILNC

A god made after the image of man,,,go figure. A new "golden calf" so to speak.

"Hey, you know God loves you?" REALLY, I LOVE ME TOO!!
"Hey, you know God desires to save you?" REALLY, I DESIRE TO SAVE ME TO!!
"Hey, you know all you have to do is say a little prayer, and your ticket to heaven is assured?" REALLY, I CAN GO TO HEAVEN, AND HAVE MY BEST LIFE NOW??

Give me some prayer, declare me saved,,,shoot declare everyone saved. Then we can all have our cookie now, and eat it. Do I need to do anything after this prayer? Really? Ask for anyything and it will be given to me? Golly gee, pastor. It is all just glorious news isn't it, this god of yours?? I want a god like that too!



This is NOT the God of the Bible. The God of the Bible desires everyone to call upon Him and the Name of the Only Begotten Son. He desires that you submit to Him, as King of all. He desires that you repent of your evil ways, so that a New Creation can be formed in you, by the working of the Holy Spirit. He desires it SO MUCH that He sent His Son here as a ransom for ALL. To save us from ourselves and our filth. Now that is LOVE! If you choose to deny this, or to live your best lives now, then how can we claim to follow Him who said that the WORLD will HATE us, because they know not the One who sent the Son?

This is the God I serve. If it is not yours, then I wonder what your god looks like.

You serve a God who cannot offer hope for eternity? Or do you serve one who will not?
