New believer in UR
« on: July 24, 2009, 12:22:50 AM »
   I was raised in an Anabaptist type environment and the teaching of eternal Hell in the church caused me much torment and agony in my teenage and young adult years. I suffered multiple nervous breakdowns over the years and eventually considered myself agnostic because of this monstrous monstrous teaching which turns the God of Love into a devil of hate. I came across the teaching of UR last year, and while I instantly knew the Truth of the teaching, it took a year of studying and absorbing the joyous news before I could change my ingrained thought habits and really believe again in the Bible and God. I am looking forward to getting to know this God of Mercy, Love, and true Justice.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. The writings of the Reformation-era Anabaptist universalist, Hans Denck, have influenced me greatly, hence my screen-name. I also hold Alexander Mack and the early German Baptist Brethren/Dunkers in high esteem; they believed in and kept alive the truth of UR until the late 19th century. I believe these Anabaptists were a revival of the true faith as taught by Jesus Christ.

Wow! So glad you've joined Tentmaker's Forum.  I genuinely look forward to reading your posts.  Share with us some of the rich perspectives you've come across in Hans Denck, Alexander Mack, and others, please!!

     Hi  Johann!     Welcome.  I would like to make a recommendation.    Download  the mp3 teachings from tentmaker  and from other good sites,    to your desktop or laptop. Next ,   put the mp3s on an mp3 player also. Then just listen to all these wonderful teachings and you will  really  learn about all the things your wanting to know more about.
Thats what I'm doing now and its awesome. I drive a truck,  and I have my mp3 player with me ,  and its got numerous teachings on it ,  and its just so great to have all that with me in my truck, a  tremendous blessing.    So,  I wish you all the best also,  in your search for the truth regarding this Victorious Gospel of  our Lord Jesus Christ!!   See ya. 
For all those who live in the shadow of death,  a glorious light has dawned!  And for all those who stumble in the darkness,   behold,   your light has come!!

Touching...blessings to you, welcome.  James.
Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
