Are you a Universalist? - what if we started an effort to promote this message on a massive scale? - would you be interested? I'm talking billboards, commercials, etc... Non profit - all about the message...

What say you?

Hey...Here's an idea. Full Preterism has a universal reconciliation branch. We could team up.

One half of the billboard could say, "Relax...It all happened in 70ad!!!
The other half could say, "Yeah...We're with them!!!"

Not that I actually agree with universalism...But I never have been able to understand how someone could be a universalist and a futurist. Always thought that preterism was kind of a prerequisite.

The message of universalism is that God is faithful, not that you can do whatever you want and get away with it (God is not mocked, the flesh will pay). It's that message that draws people to Him - His love is immeasurable, and you can run, but you're wasting your time. It was love that broke through to us, not fear.

More people would come if they would see Jesus - and that's a knock on all of us.

But there are so many people that have NEVER heard of THAT Jesus. And that is the point of this thread.

Same here... I am both universalist and preterist...

But those who are preterist and not universalist are harder for me to understand..

Like me? Kat, I am a Unie, but I stop where most keep going when it comes to the rejection of the faith in this life, and the result of their destination afterwards. To me, the church is the result of what was already reconciled by Christ for mankind, and that church is the result of the redemptive work for mankind that Christ had already accomplished. That's all FWIW Carry on!
