A Catholic Weighs In On “Free-Will”

The Rich Foundation of the Body of Christ The following was discovered within a little booklet by Dennis, Sheila and Michael Linn entitled “Good Goats” by Catholic publishing company, Paulist Press. Their take on the topic of “free-will” is extremely insightful. Especially given that official Roman Catholicism traditionally upholds the doctrine of the free-will of [...]

Matt Chandler Says Most of the Church Worships “a Different God”

One of the main emphases of this blog is to reveal how the Body of Christ itself is constructing within itself the paradigm of God’s universal love and salvation of all mankind. One profound way is demonstrated by how the evangelical Church is deconstructing itself. As it publicly declares it’s differences (most see them as [...]

Keller’s “The Importance of Hell”: Final Conclusion

The Glorious Multi-faceted Cross! In brief review, we learned that to assume the penal substitutionary death of Christ as THE explanation for what occurred on the cross is false. Again, there are significant reasons to be hesitant to embrace Keller’s defense of the Penal Substitutionary Atonement as “the Gospel.” First it fails to recognize that [...]

A Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell”: Conclusion Part 2

Is Keller discussing “The importance of hell” or “The importance of an eternal hell”? FIrst I’d like to point out something that missed my attention at the outset of these posts. If you notice, in the same way that the title of Keller’s article says “The Importance of Hell” and does not specify an “eternal” hell, Keller continues to [...]

The Ramifications of Dr. Keller’s Assessment of Our Gospel

How the Church Supports Christian Universalism Within Itself!

Updated January 8, 2014:  We have discovered yet even more evidence within the Body of Christ which expose our inherent faith in “Christian Universalism” (= the absolute success of the cross for all mankind). They happen to be some of the strongest! We updated and are re-posting this article as it is central to understanding our unique approach [...]

Another Look At “Free-Will”

One of my favorite “grace teachers” is Paul Ellis who hosts the blog site Escape to Reality and who wrote the outstanding book The Gospel In Ten Words. Besides his championing a pure Gospel of grace he has recently come out against eternal conscious torment and revealed his position of the final destruction of unbelievers (a form [...]

A Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell” Part 2

Dr. Keller continues in his article, “The Importance of Hell”: (Part 1 HERE) In the parable of Luke 16:19ff, Jesus tells us of a rich man who goes to hell and who is now in torment and horrible thirst because of the fire (v.24) But there are interesting insights into what is going on in [...]

Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell” Part 1

Note to USAToday, Christianity.com and Crosswalk.com readers: Interestingly the reference to Tim Keller’s article is actually our refutation of Keller’s belief that the nature of hell is a place of non-remedial endless torture. This site reveals how an understanding of true Biblical justice demands a restorative view of hell. This can be demonstrated Biblically, logically, [...]

Mark Galli Responds to “Hellbound?”

The following is a response to Mark Galli’s review of “Hellbound?” at Christianity Today entitled Movie Purgatory (9/20/12). Mark Galli utilizes the fact that “Hellbound?” asks more questions than it answers in order to dismiss its value. Galli opens with: ‘Hellbound?,’ seemingly bound to fail from the beginning, never takes a stand on the issue. – He continues [...]
