Bible Verses Used to Assert Not All Will be Saved / Lost souls
« Last post by micah7:9 on October 28, 2014, 01:36:01 AM »
I can find nowhere mentioned in the Bible that there is a "lost soul" or "lost sinner" could that be that IF there was/is/will be a "lost soul or sinner" that Jesus through the Father has, is, or will find them?

Like I said I can't find a verse to quote.

FAQs Regarding UR / Re: I am not UR

Everybody has a different perspective, brother, but I understand why you resist denominations. I think they exist in the church because it is not the body of Christ. I think denominations must sadden the Lord who told us we are one.

"And I have given them the glory which Thou has given Me, that they may be one, according as We are One" (John 17:22)

"thus we, who are many, are one body in Christ, yet individually members of one another" (Romans 12:5)

"For we, who are many, are one bread, one body, for we all are partaking of the one bread." (1 Corinthians 10:17

"For even as the body is one and has many members, yet all the members of the one body, being many, are one body, thus also is the Christ." (1 Corinthians 12:12)

"in Whom there is no Jew nor yet Greek, there is no slave nor yet free, there is no male and female, for you all are one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28)

" I am not in agreement with everyone who teaches the salvation of all. I am in agreement with everyone who walks in the humility of Christ- which is the source of the salvation of all. "

Not sorry for my OP, but I am glad all the quibbling has ceased. I learned that believing a truth such as ......
2Co 5:18  And the all things are of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and did give to us the ministration of the reconciliation,
2Co 5:19  how that God was in Christ--a world reconciling to Himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses; and having put in us the word of the reconciliation,
2Co 5:20  in behalf of Christ, then, we are ambassadors, as if God were calling through us, we beseech, in behalf of Christ, `Be ye reconciled to God;'
2Co 5:21  for him who did not know sin, in our behalf He did make sin, that we may become the righteousness of God in him.

Is not a denomination but an admonition. :dsunny:
Thank you all. :HeartThrob:

"Quibbling" or "squabbling" or whatever, I can't help think it's funny to hear "UR" called a denomination. Unitarian Universalists are the only denomination I can think of labeled "universalists," but they tell you themselves that they're not exclusively Christian. I think "UR" is just the description of one verse of scripture that shows the scope of God's grace through Christ's sacrifice on the cross, and that's Colossians 1:20. I don't think those who believe it are trapped in a denomination bound by creeds like church folks are. I understand the desire not to be in a denomination, but I think it's unnecessary to worry about that with "UR" because I think there are some folks who believe it that are in various real denominations. Despite the fact that most of us here agree about "UR," you can see by the diverse opinions on this forum that we all disagree about other things. I think that's probably why there is no real "UR" denomination that is exclusively Christian and may be why the Universalist Church thought it needed to merge with the Unitarians. I personally don't want to belong to any church, denominational or non-denominational, because I think they're all based on Roman creeds that contradict scripture. I prefer to just study an accurate translation of scripture for spiritual edification and communicate with fellow believers wherever whenever, often here on this forum, and, being raised in the Roman Catholic Church and then spending some time in the Protestant Church, I'm familiar with denominational and non-denominational churches.

Keep in mind, Marie, that the concept of "forever" is a modern construct, somewhat alien to the thinking of the ancients - kind of like the concepts of "zero" and "infinity," which did not exist in ancient times, at least not explicitly.

I'm probably going to take a beating over that...

Can you prove it though. In order stand up against the doctrine of Hell, we need to be able to prove it.

Sorry, no, I can't.  I was speaking from intuition more than from knowledge.  I do know that time was not thought of in the same way, away back when...
