    Every knee bows and every tongue confesses one day Frank, God wills all men to come to a kowledge of the truth and I believe that in the fullness of time God could achieve his own will, don't you...?
    What does this have to do with anything, other than reiteration of your discredited ideas? I see you're still ignoring the conditions God has put on salvation. Why is that?

    don't you think that it's about time you at least had some consistency about just what it is that you believe?

    No i'm not, i'm just not putting time constraints on it....

    Just re-stating some obvious observations:
    - In OT and NT we find clear "already but not-yet" concepts. Blessings, gifts, outcomes that are clearly seen as in God's will and plan, but which lack fulfillment or realization. [that is, SOME, I do not say ALL]
    - What appears to be "slam dunk" in some passages turn out to be "conditional" in others.
    - God intended to evangelize, proselytize and 'save' the entire world through the Jews
    - God "made alive" all humans through Jesus, just as He "made dead" all through Adam
    - Salvation has been brought to "all men" through the Cross.
    - A Question: Was all of Israel... prophetically .... written into the "book of Life" via Isaac?
    - And, in view of above, were "all Men"... meaning all mankind, recorded in the "book of Life" at the time Jesus paid the eternal price? And if so, how do those 'names' come to be "never written" in the books?

    God is not bound by our definitions of time and space. That is abundantly clear in the many "already -but- not-yet" passages. You are "saved"..... "IF" you continue.

    I am consistent. You keep playing with strawman arguments.

    Did God put time constraints on it?

    It leaves no option but to trust Universalists.

    There is the hope that Universalists are right and God is wrong.
    I have. Thanks.

    Right. God is right, and they are wrong. So to give someone false hope is to mislead them completely. God revealed clearly in His Word the judgment that will come upon those who reject the sacrifice of His Son on the cross. You cannot read the Bible and come away with a Universalist viewpoint, because the words are very clear. It is only when you read and accept the extra-Biblical writings of Universalists that you come away with views contrary to what the Scriptures teach. That is why the Universalists cannot defend their positions from the Scriptures and why this Battle Talk thread is evident of the continual refusal to actually discuss the debate it was based upon.

    There is no such doctrine. I have looked and looked and there is no such doctrine.

    Biblical Universalism agrees with that, PastorKlueless!

    Wake up, Barney!

    It's too bad (for your case) that you have no substantive objections to offer.

    No multiplicity of neg-reps and snide comments will help your case either, but if it makes you feel better, be my guest.

    Just keep the real bullets in your pocket, where, they belong, deputy.

    No such 'doctrine' exists! Does that make it a bit clearer....?

    Well, the eternal lake of fire is doctrinal. Jesus teaches of it Himself. So why do insist on rejecting Jesus in favor of something you admit does not exist?

    Don't forget the part about throwing away all the Biblical statements that disagree with the Universalist Nuance. If it were that easy, I could have saved a bunch of time going over that very question.

    Thanks! I'm sure PK appreciates the "help." Considering the question of rational argument, Universalists don't have any.

    You're welcome.

    Exclamation

    I may be stepping in ill-timed here... but a universalist message in especially the new testament writings is a given, right? Or are you guys discussing a particular, narrow, modernist Strain or Sect of formalized Universalism?

    all good seminaries of many, if not all christian flavors, teach and probe both the universalist and peculiarist themes that are in the fabric of the new testament writings. Its a false dialectic to torture an "either/or" stance .... like so many misguided 'debates'.

    'we now return you to your regularly programmed broadcast'.....
