Fess up
« on: October 15, 2014, 04:27:11 PM »
I have not run across this site before.

http://www.universalsalvation.org/

EDIT.................

found a funny quote.
Quote
"…whose number is as the sand of the sea." That is an awful lot of people. It sounds as if Satan seduces most of the population on the earth again. And that is going to leave the earth pretty empty, because they have all had to die a second time. They are all dead in the symbolic lake of fire. And if they are going to remain in the lake of fire, that would be a terrible result for someone who is supposed to be able to save everyone. We would have a Saviour who can not save. The Saviour of the world! We would have to re-name Him "The failure of the world". It would make God a laughing-stock. How to go from Saviour to failure in one easy lesson: the lake of fire!

I think Rose is right that there is a wide variety of beliefs among those who believe in universal salvation. Even though we agree that all will eventually be saved. I personally disagree with the articles belief that the lake of fire is non existence. but I agree that all will be saved.

 Yeppers BroSeth ,
 
  I was  done with the 1000  year reign .. WHAT????  What you talking about Willis ?  :Evilgrin: 


God bless em tho'   Because I sure don not know either   and still learning   and do not want to teach/share   with  anyone

   especially when I dont  know myself    How God will do this , I just know   God will    and that is the extent of  it .
 
  Our faith is a precious     thing ,  but  only God understands   us,   " thing " .  knowing all hearts .

I agree with Rose and Seth that all who believe in universal reconciliation don't necessarily agree on everything else and shouldn't be considered as authorities on anything else. I think the word of God is the authority. If anything anybody says doesn't conform to an accurate translation of scripture, it's bogus information, maybe not necessarily provided with the intent to deceive, but incorrect information provided by somebody who is misinformed which I think most of us here have been at one time or another. The problem is, and this is why those of us who agree on universal reconciliation don't necessarily agree on some other things, everybody has their own perspective according to their own interpretation of scripture. We all need to try to be humble while sharing our various perspectives in the spirit of love and try not to let our pride get in the way of the truth ultimately being revealed. That's why scripture says knowledge puffs up. I think it's good to learn something from other folks. I think that's the benefit of this forum. We get to share information with each other. Nobody except God knows everything. And, at this point in my life, I have to relearn some stuff because my old mind is fading folks. But like I tell my 90 year old dad who is struggling with dementia, don't worry because we'll help each other. That's why I think we not only need to be humble about any knowledge we do retain but keep a good sense of humor about what we've lost. I'm burned out from long years of working the swing shift and much partying, but I'm in better shape since I retired and decided to stay sober. I'm not in very good shape today though because I didn't get much sleep last night. So, if I say something a little crazier than usual, that's why.

Yup,

I agree that we don't all agree...........but.  I do spend a good bit of time reading other sites.   I enjoy the being able to pick out the differences is doctrine.............It helps to be able to do when debating on the religious forums.

I'm kinda like To, fried out to an extent  :winkgrin:

I don't believe that at this point that I agree with universal reconciliation (all will be saved), although I can understand and believe that "most all" being saved at some point, I don't think that "all" will be saved.

After so many long long but short years in the faith (both active and inactive), I have yet to come accross a group / congregations of Christians who have a monopoly on scriptural understanding.

It is almost as if everyone (churches / denominations / religions) all have at least some truth to some if not most of what they teach. I'm to the point where I'm trying to gather my toughts on my beliefs on what the Bible really says about the whole matter, and hope that maybe once I put it all together, than maybe expose them to fellow bethren for opinions and indight.
