Me and you are on the same page, (together we can defeat these evil universalists )
Personally, I resent you, even in gest, ...attaching the word EVIL to "universalists"! What gives you this right? Who of the believers in the Salvation of ALL, has attached this word (evil) to YOU?
You often speak with one foot in your mouth, this is a real good example of it.
but here's something I pondered on. Most people or all people do not know Jesus Christ in full and especially evil people.
Define "evil people"? Is that someone who is ENTIRELY EVIL? And what BASIS do you use to make such a sorrowful determination? Yourself
What were YOU before you became a believer, T-tank? Maybe an UNBELIEVER
Were you therefore, an "EVIL people"?
Due the DAMNATION of GOD?
We only see through the glass darkly and nobody has had a full revelation of the love of Jesus Christ. So how much can love change a person?
I think love can change people greatly, how many people truly love evil more than love?
Hmmm... when the Scripture notes -- John 6:44
-- that NO MAN ...CAN
... come to CHRIST
(for this "love" to change them), then who is their "evil" state up to?
They cannot of themselves come to the one who can CHANGE them, so how is it their fault, that they are "EVIL"? What were YOU before you believed, T-tank? An "EVIL PEOPLE"?
Was it YOUR FAULT you did not "come" before you did, even though you did not possess the ability
Unlike  Satan who once was part of heaven,  people do not know God as much as he did.
The first of several sets of Unscriptural assertions in this post...
Please note where it says in the Scriptures... (1)
that "satan" was once a part of heaven(2)
that "satan" ...knew
... God (more than do people)
Also during the 1000 millenium peace,
The second set of your Unscriptural assertions in this post... (1)
where is the term "MILLENNIUM" noted in the Scriptures?(2)
where is the "MILLENIUM PEACE" noted in the Scriptures?
I don't belive that Jesus will be accessible to the masses, but only to the saints, for flesh and blood cannot see God, so the only source of truth that people will get from God during the millenium would be from the Jewish nation, Abraham, Issac and Jacob, so even then they don't get a full idea of God.
The third set of your Unscriptural assertions in this post...(1)
Where is it stated that JESUS
(who has no respect of persons) will not be accessable to the masses? He said: "I will NEVER leave you or forsake you" -- Heb 13:5
-- the word "NEVER
" implies -- NOT at ANY TIME
... so if there is NO TIME that JESUS
(who NEVER CHANGES) shall be unavailable to men, wherein is truth in your assertion?(2)
Where is it stated that the JEWISH nation shall be a "source of truth"?(3)
Where is it stated that this (assertion) will take place in the "MILLENNIUM"? (which terminology, is not mentioned in the Scriptures, rather is an ADDITION to it)
(this is something i'm working on, so don't quote me on this bit above)
If you are not sure of these things
, why are you posting them
The disciples asked Jesus
Who then can be saved?
With men things are impossible, but with God all things are possible
I think that there proves that God will not force anybody to make him love him,
Of course He shall not FORCE anyone to LOVE Him... once He reveals (1)
who you actually ARE -- to you (2)
Who He is in proximity to WHO you ARE (3)
You agree that WHO you ARE, is not acceptable... no "forcing" was done at all.
There was a time, when YOU did not believe in or "LOVE
" God... Did He FORCE you
Him? How and WHY, did you come to "LOVE
otherwise he would say "im God fools I can do whatever I want" and I think the idea is absurd. A man doesn't woe a girl by taking her by force but romances her and then she can say yes or no.
God is not a MAN, and is not to be compared to a MAN (per your example of wooing a girl)... His ways and thoughts (such as "wooing girls") are HIGHER than ours... His POWER is HIGHER than ours...
God does not need to take anything by "FORCE"... He reveals WHO and WHAT He ...IS... which is LOVE
... and when LOVE
is revealed in its power, there is nothing in existence that can, or even desires, to RESIST it.
There's nothing glorifying about God forcing people to love him, but it is glory on the other hand for people who willingly worship him because of his absolute brilliance that even the wicked have to take off their hats and say truly truly you are the rightfull God.
Take off their hats?
You have already been shown that no man "WILLINGLY"
comes to GOD... Man is DRAGGED... BY GOD... unto the WORD
-- John 6:44
-- and even then... it is according to the DECLARATION of the WORD
, as to whether or not the FATHER shall be REVEALED -- Matt 11:27
-- for all who walk the pathway of TRUTH are FOREORDAINED to do so -- Eph 2:10
There are scriptures which do indicate that all will be saved, such as "in Adam all die, but in Christ all shall be made alive"
Emphasis on the word ...IN
... in both scenarios...
Howeven i'm not one of those who simply ignores those other scriptures, which point to damnation,
There is no "DAMNATION
"... the word translated by RELIGIONISTS as "damnation
", ...is JUDGMENT... look it up... do a bit research before freely spouting fallacies.
but in the context that God saves everyone, perhaps those damnation scriptures are stating something, such as punishment for the wicked, even though they might get saved eventually.
Forked tongue wordings which are "all over the place"
... which conveniently concerning "punishments" and "wickedness", DISINCLUDE YOU
God has no respect of persons (perfectly impartial) -- Acts 10:34
(and 9 others) -- and (eternally and PERFECTLY) LOVES
the WORLD -- John 3:16
-- and CASTS OUT FEAR by the investments of LOVE
-- 1 John 4:18
-- and KEEPS NO RECORD of SIN -- 2 Cor 5:19 -- Psalm 130:3
-- and He (evidently) did NOT "punish you" when He saved YOU... yet as you spread your vile beliefs, you easily note punishments for others...
You propose the one who "LOVES
the WORLD", as "damning" MOST of it...
When He sent His son NOT
to do so -- John 3:17
-- Why would He send His Son to NOT
CONDEMN/DAMN... and the Son NEVER ONCE, condemns/damns anyone... and then turn FACE, and freely "condemn/damn"?
Within the Saviors final words, He says -- "Father FORGIVE THEM for the KNOW NOT what the DO
" -- what do you think it is, ...that "they
" ..."DO", T-tank?
Are YOU part of this "THEY" He speaks of?
Yet you would propose (exempting yourSELF
of course), that GOD shall "punish" the "wicked" and that they might
"eventually" be saved?
How does that SELF oriented T-shirt fit? What of YOUR SIN? What of YOUR WICKEDNESS? Was it PUNISHED? If not, WHY? After all, you were an UNBELIEVER! YOUR SINS had their part in the DEATH of the Savior! Whattupwidat?
Oh yeah... you are exempt because you "believe"... and now proudly wear the "T-shirt of CONDEMNATION" which gives you place to condemn others...
By doing and proposing, the CONDEMNATION that JESUS
was sent NOT to do, ...and did NOT condemn, nor PROPOSE condemnation...
How do you possibly get the message of PEACE
and GOOD NEWS
that we are to preach to the WORLD that GOD so LOVES -- Rom 10:15 -- Eph 6:15
-- out of such sorrowful and misled information, T-tank?
Paul noted a "THINK" oriented verse that you should consider THINKtank:Phil 4:8
--- finally brethren, whatsoever things are TRUE, whatsoever things are JUST, whatsoever things are PURE, whatsoever things are LOVELY, whatsoever things are of GOOD REPORT, if there be any VIRTUE and if there be any PRAISE, ...THINK on these things...
IOW --- What is TRUE
is also JUST
, is also PURE
, is also LOVELY
, and is of GOOD REPORT
... which also contain VIRTUE
What GOOD REPORT, VIRTUE, PRAISE, LOVELINESS, PURITY, JUSTICE and TRUTH
is contained in CONDEMNATION
