Q. Isn't Universal Salvation a heresy?
A. No. The doctrine of Universal Salvation does not violate the Nicene Creed or the Apostles Creed. Those creeds contain critical church doctrine. In fact many of the early church fathers who outlined these creeds believed in Universal Salvation. They called the doctrine "the Apokatastasis", which means the restoration of all things to what God created us to be.
Q. Why does the bible say people go to hell forever?
A. Only translations of the bible say this, the original Greek New Testament does not even have the concept of hell in it. In fact, "Hell" is a pagan myth, and actually Hell is a women. She was the Norse goddess of the underworld of the dead and even she was never dipicted as torturing people in fire. She never belonged in the pages of the bible. See Gary Amirault's video Hell is a Woman
Q. What is the Lake of Fire?
A. The Lake of Fire is merely the word picture of a gold refiners crucible and not a lake or realm of the dead at all. See my video titled Refined in the Lake of Fire for a detailed explaination.
Q. If all people are saved why follow Christ?
A. I think that is a strange question for any Christian to ask. But there are many benefits to following Christ in the life. 1.) We are rescued from the judgment, God does punish people just not infinitely. 2.) We are the children of God and heirs of the eternal Kingdom of God. 3.) We are no longer slaves to sin and proclaiming the GOOD NEWS that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world is the right thing for us to do.
Q. Will even Hitler be saved by Christ?
A. Who do you think is greater, Christ or Hitler? Christ is going to literally rescue everyone, the easy way or the hard way. The easy way to repent of sins and give your life to Christ now. The hard way is being saved through the Lake of Fire. The main thing to understand is that God's punishments are based on a balanced scale of justice and rooted in his nature of love and goodness. SEE Doctrinal Outline. An evil character like Hitler would be punished in just measure within God's sovereign authority, could be a very long time, but not infinitely.
Q. Are my loved ones who passed away without following Christ in hell?
A. They are safely resting in God's hands and he loves them unconditionally! More than even you do believe it or not. You will see your loved ones again. The GOOD NEWS is that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the WHOLE WORLD! God is not going to lose a single person, Jesus' victory on the cross is TOTAL! Satan will not claim a single human soul.
