Did Jesus Christ save you, or did you save yourself? Most Christians will claim to believe that Jesus saved them, but let’s look at the facts to see if that’s what they actually believe. As Paul told us, Christ died for our sins, He was entombed, and He was roused the third day. (This truth… Continue reading Save yourself!
A lot of Christians are under the impression that a particular “hell” mentioned in certain Bible versions is a reference to the lake of fire, specifically the “hell” that is mistranslated from the word “Gehenna” (as opposed to the “hell” that is mistranslated from the words “sheol/hades,” or the other “hell” that is mistranslated from… Continue reading What the Gehenna?
After all, is it God’s fault that He made 90% of humans too stupid or foolish or selfish or stubborn to choose to get saved? I’m sure He did everything He could think of to get as many people saved as He possibly could, but at the end of the day He made humans in… Continue reading Don’t blame God — He tried His best
After first learning about the doctrines held to by those of us in the body of Christ, referring to what is sometimes known as “Concordant” theology, some Christians will accuse us of being in a cult, which is pretty ironic, for reasons that should become clear after reading this post. Now, to be fair, any… Continue reading Are you in a cult? Comparing the Christian religion vs the body of Christ to the BITE model
I wrote the following up really quickly in response to a post on Reddit some months back, and I thought it might be useful for some here who aren’t necessarily entirely familiar with eschatology and what the various books of the Bible say is to come. I didn’t actually cite any scriptural references in that… Continue reading Events still to come
Believers in Universal Reconciliation are often asked, “What if you’re wrong?” Well, if we are, all that’s happened is we’ve accused God of being more successful and more loving than He really is, but we’ve also still believed the Gospel (which is that Christ died for our sins, and that He was entombed and was… Continue reading What if you’re wrong?
As I mentioned in my last article, few Christians understand what it is that the Gospel which Paul taught means, and because of that, it seems safe to say that very few Christians have been saved yet. (I’m referring to salvation from a relative perspective, I should say, meaning the salvation that brings one into… Continue reading Why only Universalists can be saved
When you bring up the fact that Scripture teaches the eventual salvation of all humanity, many Christians will attempt to object by saying that it can’t be true because it would violate our so-called “free will.” The thing is, even if it were possible for “free will” to exist (which it isn’t; we all have… Continue reading The actual choice when it comes to believing the Gospel
Most people, thanks to the bad influence of conservative Christians and other religious conservatives, believe that modesty means not revealing too much skin or the outline of one’s body, and that a modest girl or woman will not be too revealing when it comes to her body and clothing. The truth, however, is that a… Continue reading Modesty is the opposite of vanity, not of nudity
If salvation was really a choice that God left up to us, we’d have to start rewriting a number of famous hymns, perhaps starting with these two: Amazing Grace Amazing grace!
