Is it not odd that the Apostle Paul never once mentions hell -- neither hades nor gehenna -- in any of his writings? He never says that if you can't or won't believe, you'll go to hell.

Q: What do you get when you cross a Unitarian with a Jehovah's Witness?

Let's be fair.
There are two tyopes of Unitarians
One is the Unniversal Unitarians who are indeed a sort of multi-theist, and they seem to think that whatever yuo beleive and however you behave that iws OK as long as you are "true to yourself"
The others are the Biblical Unitarians, who are Christians, and beleive in salvation given by Christ. But they differ from trinitarian Christians because they find much scriptural support for their view that the Trinity is a mistaken doctrine.
---alan_of_UK on 3/12/08


"Universal Unitarians ... and those are the one who are anti-Christian, or poly-deist, and have very "relaxed" moral views. There are also the Biblical Unitarians, who acknowledge Christ and would claim to be Christian, but are in error because they do not believe in the Trinity nor that Christ although our saviour, was himself God."
Unitarian Church isn't a Christian Church. VERY anti-Christian. Many Unitarians happen to have New Age type of beliefs."

Mainline and conservative Christians are drifting toward the Universalist belief.

Defined by heretical beliefs about the nature of God and the afterlife. It is a multi-faith religious group.

Each person seeks their own unique spiritual path, based upon their personal life experience, the use of reason and meditation, the findings of science and their fundamental beliefs concerning deity, humanity, and the rest of the universe.

The prime Universalism function of a clergyperson and congregation is to help the individual members to grow spiritually.

All the great religions of the world and their sacred texts have worth.

There should be no barrier to membership like a mandatory adherence to a particular belief.

Universalism, New Age, Emergent, Social Gospel, Seeker Friendly, and other new names are merging into the One World Church.

Unitarian.

A monotheistic belief which was widespread in the early Christian movement, that God is a unity, not a trinity.

There were and are many anti-trinitarian movements.
Monarchianism, sabellianism and patripassianism.
Unitarianism became a heresy and was suppressed for a long time.

A religious movement which features a lack of dogma, a belief in the inherent goodness of people, and the obligation for each member to seek out and develop his or her own system of beliefs and ethics.

It's making a big comeback, but there is nothing new under the sun. It will become blatant.

Pharisee, no problem. Sometimes I get a little aggressive when I post, but its only because I love Gods Word. I guess my zeal wants everyone to see what I see, but I know that all dont see eye to eye. Either way, I pray for you and your family, God bless brother.

(1)Universal salvation is the main belief that distinguishes the Christian Universalist faith from traditional, fundamentalist forms of Christianity. Universalist Christian believers accept the authority of the Bible, but we disagree with the way most churches and Christians have interpreted certain Biblical passages about hell and salvation.
---NVBarbara on 2/24/07




(2)Yes, there is such a thing as hell for some souls after death, but in the original, untranslated text of the Bible there is not a single verse of scripture that teaches that hell is eternal. In fact, there are many verses in the Bible that strongly suggest that every soul God has ever created will someday escape hell and be reconciled to their Creator.(Per the Universalist's website)
---NVBarbara on 2/24/07


Billy, I know that deep in your heart you love the Lord, I apologize for my unseemly conduct.

I guess that's about the only way an old Pharisee can see that he needs the day off; lose it on somebody and over react to something he normally wouldn't react to.

I'm a bit edgy from watching family members suffer, I hope you'll understand, God bless ya,
---Pharisee on 2/24/07


I suggest that you with questions look on the most recent blog concerning Uniterian Universalists. On the other hand, obviously you have a computer, Google the answers you seek instead of causing discord here. GBY

#1 Pharisee

My motives are to have Godly discussions to see the truth brought out in the scriptures. Your first post didnt address Unitarian Universalism. This would of course narrowed down what you ment. Pharisee, I hope just because I disagree with you that you dont take it personally or that im trying to argue. People call me out all the time. As far as last summer, if you thought I was kicking you, then please accept my apology because I didnt mean it to come across that way.
---Billy on 2/22/07


#2 Pharisee

I truley dont go around trying to pick fights.

As concerning the other side of the coin, not all universalists accept all faiths, but if we are addressing Unitarian Universalists I wouldnt have made that assumption. I love you Pharisee and God bless.
---Billy on 2/22/07


other side of the coin?

Maybe I didn't understand your motive, what is the other side of the coin?

I gave the information I had, Unitarian Universalists DO accept all faiths.

I was wondering why you'd call someone's name out to correct them, and then offer no additional information with your contradiction of their statement.
It looked like you wanted to start an argument or pick up on the kicking you gave me last summer. Barkin up the wrong tree billy.

1/ Hello alan

Have you ever denounced anyone on this sight? And when has this sight ever been private that someone cant speak there convictions? I dont think I owe anyone an answer to my actions. My answer to Pharisee had just as much weight of understanding as his, so why all the fuss? But either way, I will answer your question as to what is universalism.
---Billy on 2/21/07


2/ alan

In Christianity, Universalism, Universal reconciliation, or universal salvation, is the doctrine that all people will eventually be saved and go to heaven at some point after they are dead. This is based on the belief that a loving God would not submit any person, regardless of their sins, to everlasting torment, but would instead reform them. This is a belief held by some protestant denominations.

God bless
---Billy on 2/21/07


Billy ... After your public denunciation of Pharisee and his understanding of universalism, I think you owe it to all of us to tell us what you say universalism is.
---alanUKquent64534 on 2/21/07


2/ Pharisee

As far as addressing you directly, would you have prefered that I had addressed you indirectly? Would that have made you less angry? And nothing made me think that you couldnt live without that information, I just want the readers of this Blog to see the other side of the coin. Im sure we could give the readers some informative answers on this subject but I guess you dont want to talk. God bless

1/ Pharisee

God bless you to. Well lets first take a look at your response to Joels question to see if you gave him an informative answer or just left him vaguely shy of an answer.

Joel asks what is universalism and is Christian universalism Christianity?

Your answer was "They accept all faiths".

WOW what an answer!
---Billy on 2/21/07


Billy what in the world made you think that I couldn't live without that information so that you had to address me personally to fix my error?

Wouldn't it be better to just give the facts, I told what I knew, my next door neighbor is a unitarian universalist.

Your answer was AWFULLY vague for someone trying to be informative, PLEASE DON'T ADDRESS ME AGAIN.
---Pharisee on 2/21/07


Basically, Universalism teaches that there are many paths to God, and Jesus is just one of them.
Christianity, in its true form, teaches that Jesus is the only way, based on John 14:6 which states: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
---Tbabe on 2/21/07


How is it possible you heard someithing in the news and Jack didn't? This is impossible?lol;D I'm not sure about universalism. It sounds like some kind of hug-along-get-along-feel-good-everyone's-o.k.-mumbo-jumbo. I have a hard time with these teachings because Christ said he did not come to bring peace & Wide is the gate and broad is the path but narrow is the road and few find it.

Pharisee and Joel

Pharisee, not all universalist accept all faiths.

Joel, universalism isnt Orthodox Christianity, but it is scriptural according to the Bible.
---Billy on 2/20/07


The universalist believes that all people will be saved, and that nobody goes to eternal damnation, whether or not they have faith in Jesus in this life. No, universalism and Christianity are diametrically opposed to each other, for there is indeed a very real and literal eternal heaven of blissful paradise, and there is also indeed a very real and literal eternal hell of fiery torment.
---Eloy on 2/20/07


I don't know either.
---Linda9833 on 2/20/07


Joel, universalism sound nice, doesn't jive with what Jesus is all about. He said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." Jn 14:6 "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it" Mt 7:14. You see, Jesus came to "save His people from their sins" Mt 1:21, not in their sins. See Acts 26:18.

They accept all faiths.

I've not heard a WORD about universalism in the news today. What are you listening to?

Universalism is the doctrine that all will eventually be saved, including Satan.

It's aberrant, but not non-Christian, per se.
---Jack on 2/20/07


I know Universalism is not Christianity, but I am not familiar with all the details.
