I am new to this site but have visited a few times in the past. I finally realized that God wanted me to find others who believe in universal redemption to encourage me and to spread His love to the world. I was raised in the traditional evangelical church and my father is a minister. He loves God but is convinced of eternal judgement. I have been tormented by the teaching my entire life and finally have found God's true identity to be that of love and grace not anger and apathy. It is refreshing. I need christian friends who understand God's love. I often feel very alone in my faith. Thanks -- Deborah (aka gracegirl).
