Re: Christian Universalism

We discipline with the purpose of teaching how they should behave. Through discipline we teach. It is a loving thing to discipline a child. You do it not for your own satisfaction, but so the child will learn to do better. You do it to help the child.

Re: Christian Universalism

Ok first things first. I DO NOT think that God winks at sin. I think that those who do not accept Christ in this life will be punished. However, I think that there is a purpose to that punishment. It is to correct the unbelieving. God will punish them as long as it takes for eah one to accept the tr...

Re: Christian Universalism

In my church there are lots of people who, before they became christians, had terrible drug addictions. Many who were depressed, lonely, in a cycle of destructive behaviour, angry all the time, abused, and WORST OF ALLcut off from God. Now, becasue people obeyed Mat 28:19 they are forgiven, God has ...

Re: Christian Universalism

Because we were not saved all along- were slaves to sin, dead in sin, we couldn't come into His presence because of our disgusting sin. Jesus' death on the cross is how God will fulfil His oath to make all His creation worship Him. It is because Jesus died that we are all saved. We aren't saved beca...

Re: Are you prepared and ready for the stand of your lifetime?

Why would it bother you if polygamy was made legal zoegirl? homosexuality is a sin but for better or worse the law isn't based on what is sinful. If marriage became open to all combinations of concenting adults, it wouldn't make my marriage worse or under threat. If a polygamist family with children...

Re: Christian Universalism

I personally believe that God will have all men to be saved. I take God at His word when He says: Isaiah 45:22-24 (New Living Translation) Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other. I have sworn by my own name, and I will never go back on my word: Every knee will bo...

Re: Are you prepared and ready for the stand of your lifetime?

Gay people want protection under the law, in America isn't the law part of the Gov. and not of the church? I thought you guys were supposed to keep the two seperate. Gay people are fighting for their right to be equal, it has nothing to do with sex or religion. There are gay couples who do not pract...

Re: Christian Universalism

Thanks BW I would really recommend http://www.mercifultruth.com/eternity.htm also as I read this after I made my previous post and am now sure God can 'overcome evil with good' and save all of His creation. BW could you really be happy to base your belief on hell on what may be the flawed linguistic...

Re: Christian Universalism

Thanks B.W :) The Matt7:13 talks about a path that leads to destruction, not eternal conscious torment. These passages also talk about destruction (all NIV); Psalm 92:7 that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be forever destroyed. Philippians 3:18-19- 18For,...

Re: Christian Universalism

wow! I have spent all evening reading as much of this post as I can. I think that I am still 50/50 as to whether I belive in UR or annialation. I definatly dont understand the Hell doctrine. I just cant get my head round the idea that God would cast His creation into an everlasting torment in Hell's...
