Behind a frowning providence

His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.

They are Christian Universalists. They believe Rev Moon is Jesus' second coming.

I was simply adding to the list. Not very long, considering there have been 2000 years since Christ rose.

Now if you were to take the lists of people who believed in CI or ET the lists would encompase many, many pages.

Spamming a list of names doesn't make a doctrine true. Or finding a 'new person' who believes like you do.

Personally, I will stick to what Jesus said. He said few enter the Kingdom. I personally believe Him. I am not going to add ages, or eons, or second chances, or anything. This life. Once. Find Him, and live His Law of love, or die. It really is that simple.

** 23% of the world population is Islam (approx. 1.57 billion) that doesn't make a doctrine true

** The oldest known religion is Hinduism.. (approx 1 billion today) doesn't make a doctrine true

No matter how many "enlightened" new agers there are..doesn't make a doctrine true

Jesus said "few" the same "few" as:


"The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few." Matthew 9:35

“For many are invited, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14

Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?” Luke 13:23

"Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy." Revelation 3:4


Matthew 7:14
"But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find" it.
