Truly I have. Any position I take on ANYTHING I always look at the opposing view. Its how I went from a annihilationist (for about a month or two) to a universal reconciliationist. I dont like echo chambers.
To me it has to do with progressive revelation. God was playing a role among His creation when exhorting them to do what He knew they would not because He destined it otherwise. To tell a story. To bring about things out of His creation and to bring about means to display His own purpose and messages (Pharaoh comes to mind here)
It isnt till the risen Christ appears to Paul that we get a divine and outright revelation that “God is working ALL things in accord to HIS will”. This is vaguely touched upon by o.t. prophets but never barging into our understanding like a battering ram like Paul does make it to be.
When I was an annihilationist the thing that REALLY pushed me to U.R. is that U.R. could give a logical explaination of the annihilation verses but the annihilation could never give a logical explaination for the U.R. verses. And the same applies to the free will/sovereignty debate to me. Foreordainment can make sense of the “free will” verses but the “free will” verses cannot give a logical explaination for the foreordainment verses. And thus is why I am one who believe in the reconciliation of all things and believe in Gods ultimate sovereignty over His creation to subject them to what ever purpose He may have.
