Hi all. I'm sanding the ceiling in my basement today Aug 5 2023 4:08 PM. My carpentry tips: Wear mask, googles, gloves. Block of wood, wrap wet sandpaper grit sheet around. Rub away!
Here's a Christian named Rob being interviewed. Is he a universalist?
timestamp 00:12 When Rob Bell asks if he believed in Christian Universalism, he replies with "I don't know"
So how can his book boldly say "Love Wins" even though when asked if "Love Wins" aka if Universal Salvation through Christ will be achieved he says "I don't know"
0:21 Jesus clearly teaches Christian Universalism. Eternal means aionios which is not forever, but rather pertaining to an age.
Look it's at least better than being outright infernalist like it appears these othrr commenters are. But it's better to just outright say to be a Christian Universalist like myself I say boldly.
Alright, lets look at an actual confirmed Christian Universalist (UR) named Rob... Robin Parry!
Proof from Wikipedia
Robin Parry is a Christian theologian particularly known for advocating Christian universalism. His best known book is The Evangelical Universalist, end quote
timestamp 1:31 UR not heretical, can fit in orthodox view, biblical
timestamp 3:17 Christ resurrrection, He already died for all and paved the way for UR
timestamp 3:42 baptism meaning dpiritual baptism by dwelling of Holy Spirit faith alone saves us not physical water baptism
calvinist: God able but not willing
arminian: God willing but not able
certain ECTers: God not willing and not able
UR: God willing and able

"The Arminian is right, God loves everyone, God wants to save everyone, Christ died for everyone... The Calvinist is right in saying God will get his purposes done, God will achieve his purposes." end quote
timestamp 7:57 more than just posting a bunch of proof texts lol
timestamp 10:08 not everyone is saved now, but eventually everyone will be saved. not everyone believes in Christ now, but eventually everone will believe in Christ
timestamp 13:58 Revelations 21 lake of fire and smoke of torment verses are immediately followed in context by universal refemption
Rev 21:3-4 NIV And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
Revelations 15 the nations all will worship you even though thry were thrown in lake of fire, showing that the aionion punishment has an end and is thus temporary, not forever
Rev 15:4 NIV Who will not fear you, Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
fear referring to respect, not an ECT fear, a UR feat aka respect
timestamp 16:12 everything hitler took away restored. hitler suffers punishment temporary from many sins, convinced to believe in Christ eventually and saved
timestamp 20:10 we are all human sinners. so we all have potential to be as evil as hitler.
Timestamp 28:18 a human is not even infinite how can their sin be infinite? reminds me of GotQuestions flawed infernalist logic
Typing today on road trip with family away from house, safety. Murderous Iglesia Ni Cristo has been to our physical address.
``` John 14:6 HCSB Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” ```
way, ὁδὸς (hodos) Strong's 3598: A way, road, journey, path.
“Are we there yet?” is a common road trip saying. Everyone will reach the destination called Heaven as all will believe in LORD Jesus Christ; He is the only road to paradise.
There are different kinds of abuse
Abuse is harm that can be physical, sexual or emotional. Neglect is also a form of abuse.
When something is done to harm a child’s or an adult’s body, it is physical abuse. Some examples of physical abuse include slapping, kicking, hitting and shaking or threatening to do any of these things.
Saying mean things to another person to hurt them is a way of bullying, scaring, or putting them down. So is threatening to hurt someone or to do something mean to them, like destroying their toys or other possessions or harming their pets.
problem with purgatory is works salvation. we suffer from sin so that we can be convinced to have faith alone in Christ to be saved. it's not the suffering itself that saves us, its only our belief.
Middle English: from Anglo-Norman French purgatorie or medieval Latin purgatorium, neuter (used as a noun) of late Latin purgatorius ‘purifying’, from the verb purgare (see purge).
we are only purged from our sins by faith in Christ. an atheist can suffer as much as they want, but they ronr be saved until they believe in Christ
definition in Roman Catholic doctrine) a place or state of suffering inhabited by the souls of sinners who are expiating their sins before going to heaven
atone for sin
we can see that this is false doctrine. who atoned for our sins? Christ did! Not us. We can never save ourselves on our own. We need Jesus!
a christian like David may temporarily lose the joy of their salvation by committing sin after they are saved, they may feel guilty. but did they lose their salvation? No! Does God view them as guilty of their sin? No! When they believe in Christ they are permanently saved as the Holy Spirit dwells inside of them permanently!
