    Correction and remediation of what? Did Jesus forgive sins, never to be remembered by God, or not?

    Yes, He did. And that more than any other reason makes it difficult to believe in an eternal punitive action against sin rather than it's complete abolishment.

    So if your sins are forgiven, why are people still going to hell?

    Not to be tormented forever, obviously.

Bizzare.
    Grace ends when sin ends. If people choose sin over grace then the only possible response is separation. Once separation has happened there is only one avenue for return, through faith in Christ.

    You are too smart and too well read for me to allow you to side-step a question like that. Think about it, pray about, talk to others but I want you to give a solid answer to this question: If Jesus was seccesseful at forgiving sins, what sends somebody to hell?

    This is an important question and I need you to answer it directly and honestly.

    Universalism is shown to be easily refuted by so many different and simple lines of questioning. Questions like:
    Why do people go to hell?
    Why did Jesus die? and
    What price do we pay for sin?
    should have simple, one verse answers. That universalism cannot give simple answers to simple questions is not proof that universalism is wrong, but it's a huge clue toward the fact that it is decietful.

    I don't view it as sidestepping.

    Look...your premise is that sin has been taken away, so why do people still go to hell.
    The answer of eternal torment is completely unsatisfactory, because it would have people burning...whether literally or metaphorically...forever in spite of the grace offered because they failed to recieve it before they die. The grace is no longer offered because of death.
    That makes death victorious over God's grace.

    My premise says that the grace is still offered even though we die....and that at least gives the hope that people are saved from hell even if they arrive there before recieving it.

    If you are trying to say that eternal torment explains why people go to Hell....well, good luck with that. The explanation as to why they go to hell is the same in both the eternal torment model and the universal salvation model.

    Stipe...the answer to these questions are the same answers in both universal salvation and eternal torment.

    The difference is that in universal salvation, grace is still there, and in the eternal torment model it isn't.

    Does this help?

    No. Grace must cease.

    How can you disagree with that? What did Christ pay for Logos? Will that thing cease?

    If anything is eternal, then surely what Christ did is eternal in it's accomplishments.
