Anti Universalism Article


How would you respond to this article? -


Hi James,

I’ve addressed such arguments in the following thread, in a series of posts beginning here:

And in many posts in this topic:



This is because God won’t force anyone into his presence that doesn’t want to be with him. If God created humanity to know, love, and enjoy a personal relationship with him forever,[4] God would not force anyone to do something that was against his or her will.

This is a bit of a straw man. Universalism doesn’t say that God will force people into heaven who don’t want to be there. It says God will give people infinite opportunities to enter heaven on their own free will. (at least the variety of universalism that believes in free will)


That’s pretty much the way I see it, qaz—that is, if the person is willing to submit himself to the Lordship of Jesus, the Son of God.
