The All-Sufficient, All-Embracing Love of God

Originally, man was the offspring of God by creation; now God has come to us as the Savior, Who lavishes favor. All of His dealings with the members of His family have one end: that we renounce all confidence in the flesh and find rest in His all-sufficient, all-embracing love.

A God Worthy of the Name

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

What a relief to point to a God worthy of the name! A God Who has a purpose in pain and a design in death. A God Who will use every groan for His glory and His creature’s gain, and will turn every torment into ecstasy and the exaltation of His great name.

God’s glad message does not consist in heralding a horrid hell. It concerns His Son, and the universal reconciliation is but the gospel ultimate, for it, too, concerns His Son and His eventual triumph. It is the popular orthodox “gospel” which is driving men into various by-paths.

If Endless Punishment Was True

If Endless Punishment Was True …

  • Would God have thought everything was very good (Genesis 3)?
  • Would He have called it merely death?
  • Would He not have revealed it to Adam, Abraham, Moses and all of the prophets, and not waited 4,000 years?
  • Would He not have engraved it in stone?
  • How would all nations and families of the earth be truly blessed as promised?
  • How would God’s mercy endure forever as promised?
  • How would God’s precious, heart-warming promises have any true meaning?

Who Would Dare Smile?

Who would dare so much as to smile, if he really believed endless torments were certain to be the portion of some members of his household? Marriage would be a crime; each birth the occasion of an awful dread. The shadow of a possible Hell would darken every home, sadden every family hearth. All of this becomes evident when we reflect that to perpetuate the race would be to help on the perpetuation of moral evil. For if this creed be true, out of all of the yearly births a steady current is flowing on to help fill the abyss of hell, to make larger and vaster the total moral evil which is to endure forever. “The world would be one vast madhouse,” says the American scholar Hallsted, “if realizing and continued pressure of such a doctrine was present.”

Not Saved by Our Views

Our first views of Christ, as our first views of everything, even in this world, are, and must be more or less imperfect. God knows this, if we forget it. Thank God, we are not saved by our views but by His grace.

The Ephesian Summit

Ephesians is the summit of God’s revelation to us. God has removed sin and estrangement. No longer does justice withstand the purposes of love. Paul takes us back to a time long before the creation of Adam, and forward to a point far beyond the end of the book called Revelation.

God Keeps the Reins in His Hand

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

We know too much about things in this world to lean much on man. … Every single item of history today is certainly in accord with God’s intention, even though it seems that almost all of it is contrary to His will. Only if that is true can we have universal reconciliation. God can save all mankind eventually only if He keeps the reins in His hand. All will not simply be saved, but reconciled, glorifying God. All this is fulfilling God’s intention. …

So let us give thanks for it, no matter how bad it seems to be. When we realize this, then we can live in this insane asylum, and we will not quarrel with the inmates. … We acknowledge that all is out of Him, as well as through Him and, consequently will be for Him in the great consummation.
