Episode 419: The epic conclusion of my takedown of Universalism wherein I demonstrate that Universalism is really a philosophy in search of a biblical text. Its reading of Scripture is informed not only with a faulty hermeneutic (Scripture read through the lens of philosophy), but it’s very view of Scripture is itself erroneous. Finally, what we should really hope for with eternal destinies.
Episode 418: I continue my takedown of Universalism by walking through the proof-texts offered in favor of the doctrine & demonstrating exegetically why their conclusions are unsubstantiated. Romans 11.32; 1 Corinthians 15.22, 28; Philippians 2.10-11; 2 Corinthians 5.19; Colossians 1.20; & Ephesians 1.10 are all examined within their context. Close reading of each of these texts in their given context eliminates the confusion and even contradiction that universalism introduces.
Episode 417: What in the world is Universalism and why would anyone be opposed to it? I breakdown what Universalism before tackling it from a biblical perspective. I approach first on a macro scale demonstrating why Universalism is inconsistent with the Scriptures as a whole. Then, I begin dealing with Universalist proof-texts: Acts 3.21 & Romans 5.18-19. More to come…
