I wanted to post some reasons I believe in Universalism, but many are not the " Common Reasons", they are Unorthodox, or sound in my own opinion. They are correct proof to me personally, and the reasons that fuel my belief that they are right. Some will be sound biblically, some will not.
1. The first personal proof for me is Evaporation. That is when something slowly disappears. Or goes away. One year I did not believe in Universal Salvation, the next year it was there. The belief has been just the opposite of Evaporation, within me, it just keeps growing and will not go away. I won't go into to it, but its similar to Love in this manner, it comes, it stays and it grows within you. I just can't get rid of it, and I recall trying to in times past. One could get fancy and compare this to Jeremiahs fire shut up in him and he could not keep silent, but I look at it a little more Unorthodox, because I know how I am, I don't know how Jeremiah was.
I can't shake the belief in Universal Salvation, its become a part of me. And that shows me the importance of it to me. Its telling me something, because I am not an ignorant man in the area of what I have allowed myself to consume with no control over it. I am much more stronger and wiser than I used to be in my youth, so I just know that there is more to Universalism than meets the eye or Heart. Universal Salvation highly interest me, I like it. Even though I do not completely understand it, I like it.
And that is no.2, I " Like" the belief. I mean I Like it, it suits my inner desires, and I think it suites what I would Like to think that God is like himself. So many are discussing what " They" Believe, but what does a person think about what God Believes? I Like to believe that God believes in Universal Salvation, and with a Passion too. I Like God MORE now, than I used to when I believed differently. I Like to think about him Saving Everyone, it just turns me on. I Like the way it " Affects Me", in many areas of my belief. When and how we Like things, carry over into and affects in our beliefs and Living. God means more to me now, than before. The Bible means more to me now, than before. Life itself means more to me now, than ever before. When something will not leave you, and it has brought more meaning into your Life, something very important is there.
3. This is a difficult one to explain, but I will do my best. Karma. My own Karma. The Destiny or Fate of my own mind as I view the events, both past and present, in my own personal Life. The way my mind is, as opposed to how it used to be. Somethings going on in my Mind, and Life, and I am not the only one who has noticed it. Universalism has changed me since it has gotten into me. Mostly it has changed my mind, how I think, well literally my whole being, as I understand the word Being. My Consciousness is just different. It really is. My Karma is different now. I am not as afraid of death and hell and misery as I used to be, and for me, that is significant. Because of this, I view the world so much differently. I view sin so much differently, there is no sense of doom and destruction looming over the fate of OTHERS either, much less myself, and I really Like that. So The Belief has gotten into me, will not go away, I Like it, and I feel it is my Destiny, as well as the Karma of the entire race of humanity.
4. This reason is what I call; " The Suffering." When the belief of Universal Salvation entered me, one of the most dramatic changes in my Life, was the Suffering, and how it both changed and increased. I was living a life of good and plenty, I had some good times sinning and had plenty of it. And I got away with an awful lot of it. Until I found out that you can get by, but you really don't get away. Pain is a very serious teacher. Suffering is the Heart of Overcoming, its the Pain of Growth, And you can't tear that heart out of the body of Christ. I hate suffering, I literally hate pain and I don't like it. But I have found that Suffering is just like the Evaporation analogy, it will not go away. I didn't have this problem in the church's of the world. Now, whenever I would even just " Think" of doing good, it seems evil is conversely dogging me. Often I think somethings personally after me, and it enters the chase even into my sleep, it still won't let me rest completely. I guess this is one reason I envy those who have entered into the rest they speak of, I have known no such rest in my life. I think the belief in Universal Salvation has made me a target, of both physical beings, as well as Spiritual Beings.
But there are certain things that the suffering has taught me, has opened to me, in an Unorthodox way. And I want to go into that.
