Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Is There Such a Thing as Christian Universalism?

host Adriel Sanchez aired May 5, 2021

Episode 699 Show Notes 

From the Show

Think about who it is that we worship: a holy God. And sin is a transgression against this holy God. The free offer of the gospel is so good, and to reject it, to turn away from God and rebel against him, is understandably a heinous thing if we have a high view of God.

–Adriel Sanchez

Is There Such a Thing as Christian Universalism?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How do you witness to teenagers who are not receptive to the gospel?
  2. When Jesus healed people, did he use oil?
  3. I am a new Christian and am finding a hard time finding fellowship with other believers. Do you have any advice?
  4. I live in Romania and am a member of the Russian Orthodox church, but I don’t agree with much of their teaching. For instance, recently on Easter I heard a priest share that all humanity will be saved. But is universalism even biblical? Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus being the truth and the life, and repentance all make no difference if we all are eventually saved. What are your thoughts?
