Come on now - why is this so hard to believe? Why must people think so irrationally about the Lord's Power and Purpose?
It is hard to believe because when I look around, I see sin everywhere. So, no, sin has not been destroyed. Not yet, anyway.

For the traditional hell preacher it NEVER gets destroyed. But with Universalist it eventually gets completely and utterly destroyed.

The King throws out non-believeres and hypocrites. The first round of invitations were for Jews, who rejected it, the second round was for gentiles, but if you have not accepted Christ (wear the dress) you will be tossed out.

The man who was thrown out accepted the invitation and came. That is what you tell me to do.

Whatever you say. I provided the context and the verses around the ones you licked, and they proved you wrong. There are none as blind as those who refuse to see.

Then I guess I am not a traditional "hell preacher". The point was whether or not sin has been destroyed TODAY, and I said it has not. You chose to answer a question which was never asked.

Read my previous reply about who gets thrown out.

BTW, what did your reply have to do with my post? See below how people show up and think they are good to go, but the Lord tells them to go away. They are not wearing the dress.



See also Luke 13:22-27

Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?"

He said to them, 24"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, 'Sir, open the door for us.'

"But he will answer, 'I don't know you or where you come from.'

26"Then you will say, 'We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.'
27"But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!'

That is the problem, the man accepted and came and then he was thrown out.

What demonstrates acceptance and attendance are real, find out when you get there?

Re-read my previous posts. I am not going to repeat what has already been said and/or play the bicker-game with you.

If you are not sure, then test yourself. That is the Biblical advide:

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?

If you were relating that to Universalist then that would be a diversion because Universalists understand that Sin is not destroyed Today. But again you give me course to state that eventually ALL Sin shall be destroyed.
