Universal Salvation and an Easter Testimony
« on: April 25, 2011, 06:11:09 AM »
I remember for the longest time, I had favored Easter, seeing it as a very powerful and victorious holiday.  There was always some type of awe I had for Jesus death and ressurection.  But could never figure it out what made it so awe inspiring.  The hymns and readings in reference to the ressurection I remember being very powerful.  However the doctrine of Hell I remembered watered down any religious holiday, including Christmas.  I could not help feeling no awe for either of these holidays after learning about the doctrine of hell.  The gospel turned into a psychopath god who had an unquenched wrath for humanity, and grudgingly sent his son only to open a very hard door to find within a limited amount of time or burn forever.  The Gospel seemed very watered down to me, and the only joy was that there was a possibility that you could escape these horrible punishments.  However the truth assures all people salvation from a God who is all powerful and all loving, who can break the chains of death, and will do so.
