Hi Linda :)
Welcome!! I'd like to share with you that I felt so relieved when I finally grasped universal salvation and understanding what God's love really is. Deep down, I couldn't imagine eternal torment for anyone, it's just too terrifying to think of. I understand people like Ray Comfort and people like him who are so concerned about people finding Jesus to avoid this fiery lake of fire that people will apparently burn in for all eternity..., but it's still terrifying if it's coming from a God who is supposed to be all loving, all powerful, all knowing. I just had a hard time with walking up to some random person, telling them they could be a "thief" or whatever, and it just seemed more like an insurance pitch when I thought more about it. All I know now is how wonderful God truly is... I used to think he was just a cantankerous old man in the sky and compared him to earthly dads, but now I'm not afraid of him, God is awesome and so loving. I can see that now.
