Beware the dangers of universalism

  |  0 Comments

Beware of the dangers of universalism—it is a seducing spirit that is aimed at weakening the prayer movement. It eliminates the urgency of the Gospel and contradicts the Biblical requirement to repent, turn and change one’s lifestyle.

What is Universalism?

In brief, Christian universalism (also known as ‘universal reconciliation’) is the doctrine that Jesus died on the cross for all humanity, and therefore everyone will ultimately be saved—regardless of whether or not they choose to believe, repent and follow Jesus. [2]

Universalism says that since God is a good Father, He would not send people that He loves and that Jesus died for, to the fires of hell.
Universalism re-interprets Scripture, drawing from the approach of the Bible being ‘a collection of stories written by people who are on a journey of discovering God.’ This doctrinal approach takes out the ‘hard lines’ of Scripture. Hell is not a reality—hell is simply a metaphor.
