--- Quote from: VineBranch on November 21, 2012, 12:15:16 AM ---Hi All:

I loved to study.  I still read a lot but not as much as I did in my younger days.  I find I spend more time in prayer then in discusssion: although I still love to debate issues.  I am fascinated with this thing universal salvation.  There is a lot of stuff to read and I am really looking forward to knowing more about it.

The more I think about it, the less I believe in Hell, but I could be wrong.  Personally I'm more interested in Heaven.  The thing is however, the older I get the more I see that the things I know are shrinking in number.  Reading is fun, pursuing knowledge is fun, study is fun, but at the end of the day I find I am with Paul:  I know Christ and Him crucified, the rest is dross.

--- End quote ---

I was in my mid-20's when I came around to Universal Reconciliation, prior to that I had a couple of short excursions into groups teaching that they were as close as you could get to being affiliated to the "one true church". Without going into bringing up the actual names of such organizations, all of them have one trait in common & it is "attitude". Their "attitudes" are grossly despicable & totally unlike what Christ taught us: "do unto others, as you would have others do unto you". Some in these groups go so far as to carry an attitude of consenting to the death of anyone who would criticize their theology, just like Saul of Tarsus, remember him?

Unfortunately almost all the "one true church (organization)" groups believe just like Saul until they have a "Damascus road experience", and that is exactly what UR does for us, after you've had it, you never go back.

Lazarus Short:
Welcome, VineBranch!  :friendstu: Yes, in time, our very existence in the here-and-now will seem to be dross, but it's all we have just now.  We look forward to better, later.
