In the end, God redeems every human being, according to an ever-widespread misconception. There will be universal redemption through universal reconciliation and all people can remain the way they are today. This dangerous thesis is “necessary” for ecumenism and the creation religion to be introduced, but has absolutely nothing in common with the gospel.
Inhalt / Content
More and more often one encounters statements that God will ultimately pronounce all people righteous. Some earlier and some later. God loves all people and will therefore redeem everyone. For the unbelievers, the “final judgement” represents the chastisement, in which knowledge is revealed to everyone in the mind and sins and transgressions are revealed in the heart. For the unbelievers, this is “hell”, but in the end all come out purified and enter eternal life as righteous. A fantastic story, but one that will come as a very “real shock” to a great many people.
However, these theses of an all-encompassing reconciliation with humanity are not the result of some smaller circles of misguided congregations, but are also increasingly being heard and read in the large churches in Germany. Usually in a weakened form like “God accepts everyone as they are and everyone can remain as they are”. It only needed minor “optimizations” in life, but otherwise everything fits as it is.
As a rule, quotes or parts of verses that have been torn out of the Bible or parts of verses without any context serve as supposed evidence for such erroneous claims that God ultimately redeems all people. Unfortunately, only people who read the Bible independently and recognize the connections are aware that the crude hypothesis of a “universal salvation” would overturn the entire gospel. After all, the word of God was given to us human beings solely so that we could see what way out of the consequences of sin is.
However, since it is now a “very comfortable” society, such “apologists” have a relatively easy time of it. The supposed everyone’s salvation also sounds “wonderfully tempting and simple”. You don’t have to worry anymore, let alone change your life and behavior.
A supposed salvation of all people also fits seamlessly into ecumenism. Thus, this “theology” becomes universal and independent of religion. Faced with this carefree life of faith or unbelief, one can focus on the issues that have been declared essential. In addition to the merging of all religions under the umbrella of the moral and political overseer in Rome, this also includes concentrating on creation. The focus is not on the creator, which could at least raise uncomfortable questions in the context of the different faiths, but on creation. After all, this is visible, tangible and cannot be denied. After all, mankind lives in the middle of it and now it is up to us to unite people into a family in order to preserve this creation, to honor it and also to worship it in a certain form.
The most fundamental question in the event of all salvation would be the reason for Jesus’ sacrificial death. If God redeemed all people, be it with or without the defined “guilty conscience hell,” then there would have been no need for Jesus’ sacrifice at all. Jesus himself came into the world to free people from their sins, or in this sense to save the world. Why, when there is an all-salvation?
It is obvious that the thesis of a salvation for all people and the representatives of this thesis, individually or as a body, were born out of the “spirit of the Ignatians”. The handwriting of these scholastics is unmistakable. They also tell that faith cannot be gained from the Scriptures, but from one’s own heart and soul. In short: They turn the gospel into its opposite and declare the word of God superfluous. They misuse Jesus’ name to call their “military brotherhood” a dishonor to His name through their actions. They hate the Son of God through and through. But what do these people actually want to be able to do against the Word of God? You will stumble, completely.
At this point, the advice of Ephesians 6:11-12 helps every sincere believer:
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The armor described here is precisely this gospel, which the adversaries have not managed to eradicate in well over 1,200 years.
It only takes a few verses to refute the thesis that “God speaks all men fairly”. It was enough to present the scraps of verse used by these “apologists” in full and in context to unhinge their fantasies. An all-atonement of God would render the gospel completely obsolete. The bottom line is that the Old and New Testaments deal exclusively with the path of salvation for man. Picking out individual verses in order to refute universal reconciliation is actually a tiresome subject, since after all the entire Word of God, the gospel (“the good news about victory”) focuses on salvation through Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ said in John 14:6:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
This is where it gets “very difficult” for everyone who doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. All redemption is not compatible here.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
This statement alone clearly shows that there will also be no all-redemption at the Last Judgment. The “second death” mentioned here is the final death, irrevocable, the cessation of existence. This also makes it clear that there is no eternally burning and excruciating hell. Again, this is just a frightening notion of the Roman Catholic Church , on whose behalf those are on the road and want to tell the world something about the universal redemption of mankind. These people are members of “Babylon” and this consists of Satan himself as well as the “beast” and the “false prophet”.
This Babylon will be completely destroyed, also in Revelation 20:9-10:
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
