I Receive Gladly That God is Love

I received gladly, both with feeling and understanding, the doctrine that God is love. Everything which opposes this – a burning hell, therefore, whose fire endures forever – I could not recognize.

Incompatible with His Holy Nature

(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

In my survey and meditation on the theory of hellfire and damnation, or a living, conscious, Eternal punishment after death, for any of the creatures of His Powerful Hand, I find that it is not compatible with the Holy Nature of the High and Lofty One that inhabiteth eternity. And if true, would bar, and exclude Him from the Divine Attributes of Love, Justice and Mercy with which He is so magnanimously endowed. God is Love. We cannot conceive of Him violating the holy faculties of his Person by consigning any part of his helpless creation to interminable torture.

This is our guarantee for the success of His plan for all of humanity – even all creation. According to the pleasure of His will and the counsel of God from eons past, He will “gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in Heaven and which are on Earth – in Him” (Ephesians 1:10).

All Will Be Redeemed

All will be redeemed in God’s fullness of time – all, not just the small portion of the population who have been given the grace to know and accept Christ. All the strayed and stolen sheep. All the little lost ones.
