#166 THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL Paul Siegvolk

"As the centre of the whole Bible, whereat all its contents aim, is this, that by God in the beginning every thing was created very good; and that by Christ, the heavenly Wisdom, through Whom all things were created, all whatsoever is corrupted through sin, must at last be made good again. So may anyone whose eyes are opened to see clearly into this point, find a great many testimonies of this eternal truth, both in the books of the Old and New testament."

#167 THE CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE OF HAPPINESS - Gotthelf Samuel Steinbart

"God can never punish any, more than is necessary for his reformation. He cannot mistake in the choice of His means, and must always reach His end. He would appear less lovely if one creature should be forever miserable."

#168 APOLOGY FOR SOCRATES - Johann August Eberhard

"Punishment being an evil, cannot be employed by a good being, unless for ends whose goodness is greater than the evils suffered, and which could not be obtained without inflicting them. God punishes not for the common good only, but also for the reformation of the sufferer; which being accomplished, punishment has no further use. It was designed to influence the love and practice of virtue; and when these are produced, it must give place to the happy consequences of amendment. Punishment therefore, being a benefit even to the sufferer, when properly viewed by him, must produce emotions of love and gratitude."

#169 HISTORY OF THE CHURCH John Le Clerc

"Christ's judgment will be conducted so that its justice shall be seen by all. For the great diversity of crimes there will be a proportional variety of punishments, whatever they consist in. Aionios may be considered an indefinite duration to which God hath placed no limits known to us, the word sometimes signifying an AGE."

#171 PHILOSOPHICAL AND CRITICAL INQUIRIES CONCERNIG CHRISTIANITY Charles Bonnet

"It will be suitable to the spirit of the whole system of thought to set forth the pains of the wicked as aionion, or rather of an indefinite duration.

If in the Supreme Being, justice be goodness guided by wisdom; if Almighty Benevolence essentially requires the improvement of all intelligent beings; if punishments can be the means of leading to perfection; if there be more joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth; if there be much love where much has been forgiven: My heart leaps for joy I am lost in admiration what a wonderful chain of doctrines! The compassion of the Only Good is infinite 'He desireth not the death of a sinner; but that he should turn from his wickedness and live.' God DESIRETH! and shall He desire in vain?

The celestial heralds commissioned to celebrate by their hymns the glad tidings, were to instruct these shepherds in the object and the extent of the mission of Christ on earth peace, good will towards men GOOD WILL not towards one single elected nation, but towards all the nations of the world. GOOD WILL not to one single generation; but to every generation past and to come. The Benevolence of the Best and greatest of Beings includes all mankind, BECAUSE HE IS THE FATHER OF ALL."

#172 THE MODERN HISTORY OF UNIVERSALISM Thomas Whittimore

 "In his book THOUGHTS ON DIVINE GOODNESS, Ferdinand Oliver Petitpierre taught that men are sinners, and God punishes them with severity; but this severity is dictated by goodness, and all the punishments God inflicts are declared to be for the sinner's good.

How opposed to this is the dreadful doctrine of eternal punishment, and error which grew up under a misconception of the meaning of the word rendered everlasting. God punishes always to reform, a fact which the author establishes with the most irresistible reasoning.

'These shall go away into eonian punishment' in which the word rendered punishment, he maintains, quoting the authority of Wittenbach, and Grotius, signifies a remedial, corrective discipline. The infinite authority of God is entirely founded on His goodness.
'Eternal' punishment is real evil, an infinite evil, in which everything conspires to exclude from God's plan of the ages."

#173 ERSKINE'S SKETHCHES OF CHURCH HISTORY records the words of John Gasper Christian Lavater.

"God is not gracious in time and cruel through eternity. Ascribe not to God, what in a human judge all would account a defect in wisdom and goodness, the punishing for the sake of punishing. It is enough my Creator, Thou art love. Love seeketh not her own; Thou seekest the happiness of all, and shouldst Thou not then find what Thou seekest? Shouldst Thou not be able to do what Thou willest?

My prayers are comprehensive. I embrace in my heart all men; present and future times, and nations, yea Satan himself. I present them all to God, with the warmest wishes that He will have mercy on them all."

#174 - WHAT IS TRUTH? ABSOLUTE AND RELATIVE Don Bast (published 2011)

"It has taken me a long time to unlearn the harmful instruction received over many years of indoctrination. It is God's word alone that is the trustworthy source of truth. The good news of the glory of our happy God (1Tim. 1:11) will expose the error and set us free from the spiritual bondage of man's creeds.

At the present time salvation is enjoyed only by those who believe; the balance of mankind will be saved at the consummation. A savior is one who actually saves. God is the savior of all mankind, not just the 'potential' savior. When the truth concerning the eons displaces the error about eternity, judgment and grace are seen to work harmoniously together till each reaches its predestined goal. All the threats of punishment to follow the judgment of the wicked can be accepted at their full, dreadful value without doing violence to our innate sense of justice, and without denying the predictions of a final victory of grace.

Someday the entire creation itself shall be freed from the slavery of corruption into the glorious freedom of the children of God, and is groaning and travailing, even now, in anticipation. We ourselves also, who have the first fruit of the spirit, we also are groaning in ourselves, awaiting the sonship, the deliverance of our body. For to expectation were we saved (Rom. 8:21-24).

Whatever trials and troubles come our way we are assured that it is not a sign of God's anger or even displeasure. The bond of love we share with God through His Son will never be broken. His desire to please us and be with us never changes. The love of God in our hearts is our steadfast anchor through all the storms of life."

#175 MEMOIRS OF THE PRIVATE LIFE OF MY FATHER (James Necker) by Baroness de Stael Holstien

"Eternal punishment! Power Almighty, can they who entertain such an idea know Thee? Eternal fire for those miserable creatures who have so many combats to sustain, and are armed with such feeble weapons! Power Almighty, Thy goodness preceded our birth, it still subsists, it will subsist after we are cut off by the hand of death."

#176 LETTER OF RESOLUTION clergyman George Rust

"To imagine that man, for his disposition, be kept in a never-to-be-ended doom of intolerable pain and anguish of body and mind, is to fix so harsh a note upon the mercy and equity of the Righteous Judge of all the world, that the same temper in a man we would execrate and abominate."

#178 POEM by Soame Jenyns (eighteenth century)

"Oh could mankind but make this truth their guide
And force the helm from prejudice and pride,
Were once these maxims fixed, that God's our friend,
Virtue our good, and happiness our end.

How soon must reason o'er the world prevail,
And error, fraud and superstition fail!
None would hereafter, then, with groundless fear,
Describe the Almighty cruel and severe

Predestinating some without pretense
To Heav'n, and some to hell for no offense;
Inflicting endless pains for transient crimes,
And fav'ring sects, or nations, men or climbs.

None would fierce zeal for piety mistake,
Or malice for whatever tenets sake,
Or think salvation to a few confined
And heav'n too narrow to contain mankind!"

#179 DYER'S LIFE OF ROBINSON (eighteenth century)
In a letter to a friend, Robert Robinson wrote

"These believers in eternal torment are never shocked; they never blush; but affirm, 'This is wise and just, and kind; and it will be more glorious to God to save me, and damn them to endless and unavoidable woe, than it would be to share eternal life amongst us, and we few, though we hate one another here, shall be the happier for the damnation of the rest.'

Barbarians! What arrogant madness inspires you?
Poor * honies! -- servants that know not what their Lord doth.
O my soul, to such be not thou united.
Cursed be their anger, for it is cruel.

#180 SERMONS by George Walker (eighteenth century)

"Some have thought that they could not clothe the future punishment of sin with sufficient terrors, and have given therefore, such exaggerated descriptions of them, both as to degree and duration, as in the opinion of many, can no way be reconciled with just sentiments of God.

The future punishment of the wicked does, in God's nature, suppose a capacity to be relieved of it, of gradually acquiring that better state of mind, and returning inclination towards virtue, which is the first and most desirable end of all punishment."

#181 From a letter by John Henderson to Dr. Joseph Priestly (eighteenth century)

"God hath declared that His will is that all should be saved; therefore, the doctrine which forges a contrary will, falsifies supreme unchangeable truth.

Unceasing torments can answer no possible good to anyone in the universe. I conclude them to be neither the will or work of God. Could I suppose them, I must believe them to be inflicted by a wantonness or cruelty which words cannot express, nor heart conceive.
But let this be the comfort of every humble soul, that it hath pleased God to reconcile all things to Himself."

My sometimes once friends can tolerate my belief that all will be saved, with a condescending thought balloon that reads ("He just can't understand the judgment of God")......

That is, until I, as I must, declare.... "THIS IS THE VERY GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, THAT ALL SHALL BE REDEEMED, and ANY OTHER GOSPEL IS IN ERROR".... at which time they gnash upon me with their teeth and declare me to be in danger of the eternal torment, or annihilation, which I have untaught.

Hi eaglesway.

I'm 73 and it's been my long time experience to keep learning that most URs have lost and are condemned by their former ET friends. It seems to be par for the UR course.

For me the choice was to either lose my ET friends, or be locked away for life in a mental hospital over my inability to keep pretending that I loved an ET god.
The issue caused me to have a twelve year nervous breakdown (1966-78). I was able to recover by listening to, and reading the works of Ray Prinzing (my hero and mentor). BTW, all of Ray's writings can be read on the internet. Just type in Ray Prinzing. His REDEMPTION ALL IN ALL is particularly good!

#182 LITERARY HOURS Dr. Nathan Drake

"That sin and torture should be eternal can neither accord with the justice nor the goodness of Deity, and would appear to many devout Christians to convert the God they should adore and love, into a perfect demon. Fortunately, however, an opinion so repulsive is neither accordant with reason, nor the Scriptures."

#183 MISCELLANEOUS MAXIMS AND THOUGHTS William Matthews

"In my childhood I found it impossible to fix my belief in the common notion of endless torments. I discovered there are plain arguments from reason and Scripture against that presumptuous doctrine of endless punishment, and I am now cheered with the rational, Scriptural, and as I think, glorious doctrine of the punishment of Divine justice being eventually subservient to a universal purification and fitness for heavenly habitations."

I first heard the glorious gospel of the salvation of all in 1980. I wrestled between UR and annihilation for years. ET never registered with me, somehow I always knew that was off. I really began proclaiming the reconciliation of all as "the good news" and as "the Only Good News" maybe 10 years ago, when, after the Lord had provided me an extended period of dedicated time to study through evry question I had and thoroughly study through the Greek and Hebrew along with contextual issues- I felt the confidence and the confirmation in the spirit to stand boldy for the victorious gospel of Jesus Christ. Now, I find that gentleness and boldness (combined with consideration for the struggles of others who must overturn their assumptions and traditions to embrace the teaching of the Holy Spirit--even as I struggled) releases the beautiful feet of those who run upon the high places proclaiming GOOD NEWS.

#184 CHRIST GLORIFIED IN THE SALVATION AND RESTORATION OF ALL MANKIND Francis Leicester

"But the Scripture which crowns all, and the last which I shall bring into proof, is Revelation 5:13. Here all creation is at Christ's feet, and that not with tears in their eyes, or petitions in their hands, not with crying or supplications or weeping because things were hidden and kept secret; but with joy in their hearts, and praises in their mouths; with melody on their lips, and hallelujahs on their tongues; with looks and countenances full of satisfaction and delight; and their faces, instead of gathering blackness, turning into paleness, or being covered with shame and confusion (as once was the case with some of them) they all now shine as the sun, replete with light, life and love, full of ecstasy and rapture. And that because the book written within and on the backside, and sealed with seven seals, is now opened and unsealed, and all things revealed and explained: their own cases particularly unfolded to their view, with all the ways and means their loving Saviour took to bring them to the situation they are now in, with other miracles of grace and love.

Where then there is universal praise and thanksgiving, universal harmony and love, and both heaven and earth sounding and resounding acclamations of joy and peace, there must be universal salvation."
"God will have all mankind to be saved" 1Timothy 2:4
