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 [...]

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

Dr. Tim Keller remains a powerful source of revelation in the Church due to his continual inability to resist saying things he’s not supposed to mean – statements which point to only one reality: A God of global redemption and restoration. Keller is pastor of 10,000 member Redeemer Church in New York City. He is [...]

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!

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 [...]

For What Do You Ask, Seek, and Knock…?

I was meditating on the verses from the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus encourages us, even commands us to ask, seek and knock as we walk in our relationship with Him. There are a lot of things I have asked and will continue to ask, and seek, and knock for but I began to [...]

Singing the Truth We Cannot Yet Speak

Have you noticed how many of our recent worship and popular Christian songs are reflecting a limitless love and power of God? This flies in the face of evangelicalism’s confession to a limited redemption of mankind. Apparently we are able to sing a theology we are told we aren’t supposed to believe. The next time [...]

“All Is Well…All Manner of Things Shall Be Well”

Smith “All Is Well”: The phrase “All Is Well” hearkens to Julian of Norwich’s vision of Christ’s assurance that “All Shall Be Well” in answer to her question, ”Why [...]

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).

“Hellbound?” and Mark Driscoll On Asking Questions

“It’s not a problem to ask questions but sometimes when certain questions are asked it’s by someone who’s a coward and doesn’t have the conviction to declare their answer.”  Mark Driscoll in “Hellbound?” I assume Driscoll was referring to the question-drivenness of Rob Bell in Love Wins. But as many have noted the newly released docu-movie [...]
