Hello
« on: June 24, 2010, 02:33:57 AM »
I discovered the doctrine of UR just over 3 weeks ago, and have devoured as much of the content on this site as I could.  I actually grew up semi-religious Catholic, but began attending a Methodist church about 2 1/2 years ago.  As I started to study the Bible intently at that time, I actually came to the view that Christ will save all men relatively early on, but was using an Evangelical study Bible that stressed the doctrine of ET.  (I honestly do not remember being taught about ET as a Catholic, but we were not regular church-goers.) Needless to say, I became more and more distraught at this idea--as I went about my day to day activities, I started to think of all the doomed people around me, and became almost depressed.  Then I realized that I myself had brought 3 children into the world, who themselves could easily reject Christianity, no matter what I did, and therefore suffer for eternity, and I really felt like I was sinking into a pit  Would God really want me to have children only to have them suffer forever?

Somone posted a link to the Hell test on a political forum that I frequent, and I actually cried with joy when I read it.  Really, all the questions and discomfort I have had about God are gone, vanished in almost an instant.  I can not be more thankful for this website, or all the great thinkers who have expounded on this doctrine. 

Now off to post on another topic...
