Scriptures to the Witness of God being the Father of ALL, and Jesus being the Savior of ALL. Part 5

Part 5

The gospel of the universal grace is the best news that was ever heard and its benefit includes ALL people, but it is not the doctrine of inclusivism

What is inclusivism?

Because I believe that the Grace of God is inclusive of ALL people I have been accused of believing that…Jesus died and rose again, and as a result everyone is saved. All people...whether they believe it or not...are included in Christ and are presently saved and can continue to sin without suffering any consequence of sinning and they call such believing, universalism.

But, is it "universalism?”

Universal grace teaches that ALL men will be saved, not that ALL men are already saved.  Inclusivism teaches, that “all men are already saved...they just don’t know it yet.” Inclusivism is often mistaken for universalim because it speaks the language of grace. Yes: Grace is inclusive...Grace is universal...Grace includes ALL people...but...inclusivism is not grace.

One of my friends explained it to me this way... "…

Like most people in my environment, I grew up an “end times” believer where the Good News of the Gospel was mixed up in a mess of destructive destruction and the Good News was communicated against a backdrop of some terrible, no-good, absolutely abhorrent, very BAD NEWS! This Bad News was the key to getting people to respond to the "alter call" and such response gave the preacher and the pew-warmers the ultimate high in the service. The Bad Newsgospel presentation is very manipulative, controlling and very UN-Christlike in character.

I trust you can get the jest of this conversation...The preaching of the good news bad news gospel usually starts out with "God loves you so much He sent His only Son to die in your place and took upon Himself your sin. Followed by, if you do not say the "sinner's prayer" and ask Him to forgive you of your sin..."Just hang on a cotton-picken-minute pastor, didn't you just say that Jesus took upon Himself my sin …

Grace is wondrously amazing, and is the Good-News Gospel, yet, it is completely disagreeable to the grace-plusers and the grace-butters in the religious system, especially when we emphasize that it ensures that ALL of God's loved creation will benefit from the grace-cross-work of Christ.  Grace is the Love which covers a multitude of sins.  It does not diminish God's  abhorrence of sin, it just takes the finished cross-work of Jesus and applies it once-and-for-all to people's sins...past...present...and future.  Then Grace abundantly pours out forgiveness, kindness, acceptance and love without regard for one's performance...saint or sinner.

When people err in sin...or are deluded by false doctrine...God's dislike of these things are not lessened.  But neither is His love and grace lessened for the people that are involved in these things and He does not forsake them. The problem is, people believe that way due to man-made religious beliefs and misinterpretatio…

Let’s look at the words of Jesus, “My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me”.

From these words that Jesus uttered on the cross people are told that God forsook Jesus at the hour in His greatest time of loneliness and utter despair. What was happening between our loving Father and the Son at that precise moment?

Many have taken Jesus' cry that His Father had forsaken Him to mean that the Father turned His back on the Son and left Him high and dry. God cannot bare to look upon sin, is their explanation, so that when our sins were laid on Him He had to turn away from His beloved Son. This premise is used to justify God forsaken the vast majority of His beloved created people at death id they did not get "saved", and sends them to suffer in hell fire forever!

Was the faithful One unfaithful to His Son in His darkest moment? Jesus said to His disciples that they would all leave Him alone...then, did He not say that He would not be alone for the Father was with Him. If Jesu…

Is God the loving Father of ALL the people of the world and Jesus the Savior of ALL the people of the world...or...Is God the loving Father of only "ALL", and Jesus the Savior of only "ALL"...who confess their sins by repenting by repeating the "sinner's prayer", fills out a salvation card, shakes the preacher's hand and faithfully attends the weekend-meetings to give of their tithes and offerings...is this truly a thus saith the Lord "ALL"?

In John 6:44, Jesus says this to His disciples, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws them.” If we reflect on that verse the question may arise; what if the Father doesn’t draw someone? Does that mean that...no mater what...the person will never be redeemed?

Other verses that caused me to  question who exactly, is in control when it comes to  people responding to God:

“Yet to this day the Lord has not given you a heart to know, nor eyes to see, nor ears to hear” (Deut. 29:4).

“The he…

I was a bible-quoten, verse-slingen, hell-believen, eternal-
condemnation-condemner of people to a hell-fired-sinner-populated-torture-city, believer...to my shame...for most of my God believing life. I also believed that such a diabolical hellish-doctrine was God sanctioned, God ordained and godly. But, thanks be to God, and I say again, thanks be to God...I now believe the record of Jesus my Savior when He said, "I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly" and that "Jesus did not come to condemn the people of the world but that through Him the people of the world may be saved", also "God was in Christ on the cross reconciling the people of the world unto Himself." I no longer waste my time, money, energy and life walking on the egg-shells of religious fabricated theology, afraid to break the religious egg-shells and expose the shallowness of its man-made hellish doctrines because I would not be looked upon favorably as a good "soldie…

Has God's Grace and Love really Run-a-Muck?

Image
Grace and Love condemning condemners herald the accusation that graceful loving people have gone over the balance line when it comes to God grace and love. However, when it comes to God's grace and love there is no balance line, grace and love stands firm, you cannot go too far to the left or too far to the right because no matter how far you go God's GRACE is already there and His LOVE has already covered the multitude of wrongs.

Grace and Love as taught by "grace buting, love limiters" has reduced God's Amazing Grace and Unconditional Love to a means of being a fire escape from hell...if grace has run-a-muck...it is the muck-pile that the grace-condemners and love-limiters created by discrediting God's Grace and love. Grace that is reduced to being just a fire escape is a false gospel muck-pile of hog-wash and deception that renders God LOVELESS.

God's Grace and Love is clearly a transformative Gospel that goes far beyond being a fire escape from hell, ac…

"The word of The Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, 'Do not be afraid Abram.'" (Genesis 15:1).

Was it the bible that spoke to Abram...No.

Was it scripture that spoke to Abram...No.

The scripture was not written, nor was the concept even a figment of man's imagination to compile scriptures into a book called the bible in Abram time.

The interpretation of scripture and the subsequent compilation of the bible is a product of man yet, the word "bible" is not even in the bible, nor does it sate or imply that the bible is the "Word of God."

Therefore, "the word of The Lord" had to be exactly that...the word that The Lord SPOKE to Abram.

John says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and with-out Him nothing was made that was made.” (John 1:1-3)

It is impossible...unless you live in delusional delusions...to attribute the wor…
