Re: Universal Reconciliation
Guestman, you are bringing in plenty of your Watchtower beliefs, like in bringing in the topic of 'against war'. So, much of your post is irrelevant to the discussion.
The fact is, as David Tayor clearly laid out in his post...Universal Salvation is heresy. The fact, from all scriptures, is that there are NO second chances after death. Anyone who teaches otherwise is off into heresy.
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
