I just joined the forum, and I wanted to introduce myself and give you guys a little background. I am new to Christian Universalism. I am from Tennessee and grew up in a Southern Baptist church. I kind of just accepted most of the things I was taught in church when I was younger but always had a problem with the idea of hell and the fact that alot of things just didn't seem fair or characteristic of a loving god. As I got older, I really started questioning alot of things and began forming my own ideas, rather than just blindly following what I had been taught. Most of the things that I came to believe are really the basics of Christian Universalism...I just didn't know what it was called or even realize that there was an organized group of people who practiced it. I then started doing some research online and came across some great resources, including this site. Like I said, I am new to CU and still have alot to learn. I am excited to be here and thankful for the great resource.
