Hi, my name is Michael Webber.
This project started as a skeptic's journey, I was not inclined toward the doctrine of Universal Salvation. I actually wanted to refute the doctrine. Three years ago if someone told me I would be a defender of Universal Salvation I would have laughed at them. After being exposed to the concept of universal salvation, through Jesus Christ, I decided to take a closer look. I found considerable resources at tentmaker.org and on the web. At that point I was convinced there was something to this that needed further consideration and refuting the docrtine would not be so easy. Therefore I set a goal to either defend or refute the doctrine through an exhaustive bible study.
My first concern was if there were any critical church doctrines Universal Salvation might violate. Having cleared the doctrine for consideration that's when it got interesting. There actually was overwhelming scriptural support for the doctrine. It was like all the puzzle pieces came together, passages that appeared to conflict came together.
Every serious bible student knows that Calvinism and Arminianism cannot both be true. It turned out that was because they were both false. Yet the church tolerates both of these doctrines. Universal Salvation is the correct answer to that puzzle, how salvation is ultimately applied. In fact the incoherencies in both Calvinism and Arminianism were resolved by Universal Salvation, and that really had my attention. Verses used to support both of those doctrines nicely fit into the Universal Salvation framework without conflict. Therefore Universal Salvation deserves the same respect given to Calvinism and Arminianism.
The one thing that was lacking in all the wonderful resources I read was a coherent outline for the doctrine that can be defended from scripture. Having been a student of the bible for over 30 years I immediately could see the doctrine in scripture and organized it into a five point framework. All my notes, that turned into a book, were in defense of the framework. I believe the doctrine when properly understood is an impregnable five point fortress with each wall defending another.
I want the world to know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the WHOLE WORLD! I may publish my notes as an entire book at a later date. Currently I am using that work for teaching the doctrine here, at my blog, and on youtube. I cover more advanced concepts in my 135 pages of notes that I may organize and publish at a later date.
Currently my goal is to just help get the message out there. There are so many people who have lost loved ones and have been taught they are lost forever. Nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus Christ has every single human soul safely in his hands. Christ is 100% victorious and has conquered sin and death for all mankind, that is why he came.
While not a critical doctrine this is an important doctrine that deserves at least as much respect as Calvinism and Arminianism have been given.
Thanks to everyone who subscribed to the newsletter and to my youtube channel. I greatly appreciate you standing with me in this mission to let the world know that Jesus Christ is Savior of the WHOLE WORLD!
