As many of you know, I once wrote an article titled He was entombed, in order to demonstrate why belief in the immortality of the soul means someone can’t be said to be a member of the body of Christ, since it would mean one doesn’t believe a specific (and crucial) element of Paul’s Gospel,… Continue reading For our sins
Randy Alcorn just re-published Michael McClymond‘s article titled 12 Questions for Those Considering Universalism (originally published in December on The Gospel Coalition website as 12 Questions for the Would-Be Universalist). Because some Christians who haven’t studied the topic carefully enough might not know how easy it is to answer these questions, I thought I’d quickly do… Continue reading Answers to “12 Questions for Those Considering Universalism”
As I wrote last week, many Infernalists (and, I should add, even some Annihilationists) will quote Bible verses assuming that they disprove Universalism, and presumably also assuming that we’ve never heard those passages before (or at least assuming we don’t believe those passages are true). Anyone who does that without already knowing how it is… Continue reading You’re not ready to reject Universalism yet
Whenever the topic of Universal Reconciliation comes up, some Infernalist (meaning a believer in the doctrine of never-ending torment) inevitably says something like, “This particular passage of Scripture proves that Universalism can’t be true,” and then refers to a passage they assume proves their soteriology. What they forget is that a text read out of… Continue reading That passage of Scripture you referred to doesn’t disprove Universalism the way you assume it does
It’s been brought to my attention that some people have mistakenly assumed this website is run by the CPC (the Concordant Publishing Concern, who are the people responsible for the translation and publishing of the CLV, meaning the Concordant Literal Version of the Bible). While those who run the CPC are fellow “Concordant” believers, and… Continue reading This website is not run by the Concordant Publishing Concern
It’s actually very simple to prove that everyone will eventually repent and believe the Gospel. You see, the word “repent” simply means “to change one’s mind.” And so, even if someone doesn’t change their mind about how one is saved and come to believe the Gospel (which is the good news that Christ died for… Continue reading Proof that everyone will eventually repent and believe the Gospel
As I write this, I’m sitting in downtown Toronto, Ontario, but if the time ever comes that you can’t find me (presuming I haven’t died or something), and you’re wondering where in the world I might be, I’d suggest taking a look at the various websites — and, perhaps even more importantly, the various YouTube… Continue reading Where in the world is Drew Costen?
I’ve been accused of being a cult leader many times over the years, and it just happened again today, so I thought I’d write this post quickly because I know I’m not the only one who gets handed this accusation. Apparently, simply by virtue of writing articles or books about what we believe — or… Continue reading Cult leader?
While watching the livestream of the Phoenix conference after getting home from talking with the Toronto street preachers I mentioned in my last post, I heard Martin Zender say something that reminded me of what Henry, another of the so-called “evangelists” there, said. Basically, he tried to “Pascal’s Wager” me by saying something along the… Continue reading If you’re wrong…
For nearly two years now I’ve been asking Christians to read an article I wrote which explains why I believe the Bible teaches what I believe it does about heaven, hell, judgement, death, and salvation (which you can find here), as well as an eBook I wrote on the same topic (which you can find… Continue reading Nobody fears truth quite like a Christian does
