Question with 5 notes
Anonymous asked: what are your thoughts on the belief of "universal salvation" that many of the more liberal christians hold?
It is just another softening of Christian dogma. In many ways it seems to invalidate other aspects of Christianity. If all people will eventually be redeemed and reconciled with god than there is really no permanent consequences to sin. Someone can deny the holy spirit and still be redeemed, which according to the bible is the only completely unforgivable sin. Not to mention it means that everyone gets in at some point. Some day Hitler will be standing in heaven along with the millions of Jews that he slaughtered. Would it still be paradise for them? Would they be eternally happy to spend eternity with the man that murdered them and their families? They can’t be not happy, it’s heaven, they have to be. You have no choice and no alternative in that cult, it makes the entire idea slightly more repulsive to me.
