Re: False doctrine of Eternal Torture in Hell

B.W was what you saw in your near death experience Hell or Hades, is Hell the lake of fire? I was really moved by your youtube video of your testimony and I do not see how what you experienced negates UR. What you saw must surely be the place people go to before Judgement, or did you see something t...

Re: False doctrine of Eternal Torture in Hell

B.W Some biblical translations say that they will not be forgiven in/for the age. So there are views that even that scripture shows that even the worst thing you can do to God will not condem you forever. That there is nothing that will put you out side of his love, mercy and forgivness. Hebrews 10:...

Re: False doctrine of Eternal Torture in Hell

I'm not trying to prove or disprove anything, I'm certainly not trying to convince or convert you to my opinion. I'm just explaining why I feel the way I feel. Those are the immediate thoughts that come to mind when I think about God and hell. Also I'm still very much searching for answers. Thank yo...

Re: False doctrine of Eternal Torture in Hell

If I am reaching its because I really cannot reconcile a God of love who could consign the majority of his creation to hell. To think of a God that does that makes me feel fear and perfect love drives out all fear. When I think about Christs sacrifice on the cross actually saving ALL of creation I f...

Re: False doctrine of Eternal Torture in Hell

If a child went to put their hand in a fire and you warned them not to would you then "lovingly" let them put their hand in it. Lovingly repecting their free will, or would you grab their hand away? People do not understand the consequences of their sin, they are slaves to it, just like children are...

Re: Was Christ poor!?

The people who are preaching the so called Prosperity Gospel are all a lot richer than those they are preaching it too. It a pyramid scheme. If you only ever have just enough to get by you need to have faith, patience, you need to look after things you do have, be greatful for everything and I think...

A gov. run program is good enough for your troops and seniors. You trust gov. to run the military why not heal...

Re: Christian Universalism

Don't be sorry warhoop. I apologise because I obviously haven't explained myself very well. That is not my doctrine of salvation. Please excuse me, I am new to all this and am not the most eloquent of people. You are all being very patient with me and I really appreciate it, I know you probably feel...
