False Teacher - Eric
Theoretical Salvation Is No Salvation
Jesus Christ paid for
the redemption of every sinner, and will collect on what is rightfully
His. It’s a done deal. Enter those who, upon hearing this Good
News, presume they have the sonship and redemption of God while still

Christ doesn’t hide their state - it only exposes it.
We received this note:
I'm curious as to your opinion of the teachings of a metaphysical Christian
Universalist writer like Eric Stetson. Here are the URLs to a few of

in Christ Jesus, now and always.
Eric Stetson has much to say and many ideas about salvation, but he
doesn’t preach the Gospel of Christ that alone brings salvation.
In the three writings you sent us, Stetson barely mentions the essentials
of repentance and the
cross, and much of what he does say is not what
is taught in the Scriptures.
The theory of salvation promoted by Stetson is based on his erroneous

true in a limited way, but not in the sense of all inheriting the Kingdom
of God in this life. As Jesus said, “…unless someone is born
again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3 EMTV).
Most people professing Christ haven’t been born again through
repentance and the
baptism in the Holy Spirit. They haven’t seen
the Kingdom of God.

apostles had to say to the counterfeit believers of their day, warning
us of worse to come. Till now we have only been in the days of the firstfruits
“These are those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were
redeemed from among men, as a firstfruit to God and to the Lamb” (Revelation
