A Question about Salvation and Eternal Hell

Subject: Question about salvation

Hi The Path of Truth

I don’t know how to start so maybe I should explain my experiance with christians and my current beliefs and then ask a question. Basically I come from a family with a Jehovah’s Witness parents and a generic Christian parent. I then went to a bible study fellowship thing for a year and quit that in fury when they explained to us “how could a loving god not send people to eternal hellfire and torment”. Before I quit however I found a website called Bible-Truths.com written up by (your favourite I searched your website before hand) L.Ray Smith. What an amazing website this was where he taught that through judgement all men ever will come to salvation. To me the idea that any man would perish was unjust because many people have good reason to not believe in a good god especially when bible study fellowship teaches that a good god would burn everyone forever and ever. (A huge percentage of the world that has lived was definately not christian)

Anyway enough of that I saw in your correspondance with L.Ray Smith and on your website you’re not a universalist and you disagree with L.Ray on much but you still believe that all men will be saved and I don’t quite understand what you mean and your website has so much. I so badly want to believe that everyone ever will be saved even if they go through judgement and are brought kicking and screaming into eternal life for eternal punishment for much of the human populace is terrifying and not a world I would want to live in forever.

Thanks for your time

Deanington

Hi Deanington, 

You ask:

I saw in your correspondance with L.Ray Smith and on your website you’re not a universalist and you disagree with L.Ray on much but you still believe that all men will be saved and I don’t quite understand what you mean and your website has so much.

I’d say we agreed with Ray on much, but his relationship with the Lord was the real issue – lacking on account of pride and bitterness, which did him in. That was a sad thing to behold. Of what use was Ray’s doctrine of universal salvation when he wasn’t being saved? We tried to help him. 

Nevertheless, Ray will be fully reconciled to God through Jesus Christ and the Word of God we spoke to him. Praise God, His Word doesn’t return to Him void. He works judgment and correction not to be repented of. 

So yes, you can believe that all will be saved, Deanington, but make sure to put your trust in the One Who can save you by exercising faith and obedience to Him.     

Hebrews 4:1-3 MKJV
(1)  Therefore, a promise being left to enter into His rest, let us fear lest any of you should seem to come short of it.
(2)  For also we have had the Gospel preached, as well as them. But the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
(3)  For we who have believed do enter into the rest, as He said, “I have sworn in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest;” although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Working for a Woman 'Pastor'?
From: Juli To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, February 11, 2016 7:13 AM Subject: Thank you. Thank you so much for your site. I worked for a pastor for years here in Missouri and she taught me many of these things regarding the Truth. When she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 82, we had so many pastors visit and tell her: well read these books and proclaim this or that. At that time, I remembered Job. The first sentence in the book of Job tells us he was a good man- not that he lacked faith. There is so much out there right now that is false, and many are being deceived.  Hosea 4:6 tells us, "My people perish for lack of knowledge." How are we to "love His appearing.." As in 2 Timothy 4:8, when we don't know Him? It seems we are in a time where many do not even attempt to find out if things line up with the Word. I really thought your words about Andrew Wommack were spot on. I couldn't stop reading as these are all things, as a church, we had discussed- and had people tell us we were "overly critical." Well, I just wanted to say thank you for continuing in Truth. We need it in these times.

This is the Lord’s site – all His doing. Perhaps you spoke too soon thanking us for the site and for continuing in the Truth. What do you make of this Diabolical Doctrine?  ...

Como cristiana, me entristecen todos ustedes. Tu desagradable parloteo es exactamente lo que aleja a los no creyentes del cristianismo. Perdiste más de lo que ganaste en ese intercambio.   Mi fe permanece en Jesús.

Las personas que buscan la Verdad se vuelven a Cristo cuando ven nuestra exposición de falsos mesías como el Jesús artificial de Clayton. Ellos están muy agradecidos de que la luz haya llegado para cortar la oscuridad de la pretensión y confusión religiosa. Son los idólatras como tú quienes se ofenden y se apartan de la Verdad, “cristianos” paganos cuya Opinión es condenada por la Palabra de Dios hecha carne.  2 Corintios 11:13-15 RVG (13) Porque los tales son falsos apóstoles, obreros fraudulentos, que se disfrazan como apóstoles de Cristo. (14) Y no es de extrañar, pues aún Satanás se disfraza como ángel de luz. (15) Por tanto, no es de sorprender que sus servidores también se disfracen como servidores de justicia, cuyo fin será conforme a sus obras. ¿Qué te hace pensar que los falsos maestros, como menciona Pablo, no predican lo que parece ser el verdad...

Antes de hacer la pregunta, me gustaría dejar claro que estoy familiarizado con Piper, pero no conozco completamente su doctrina. Yo solo he visto algunos videos cortos de él en YouTube. Sin embargo, tu crítica de él como un falso maestro gira en torno al hecho de que él predica sobre un lugar de castigo eterno para los no creyentes (el infierno), como puedes leer en tus propios escritos:  Una de las más grandes y peores mentiras contadas por el cristianismo artificial, una a la que John Piper se suscribe y enseña, es que hay un lugar de tormento y castigo interminable para los pecadores. Los hombres piensan que esta doctrina se encuentra en la Biblia, pero aunque es algo que el hombre carnal le desearía a otros, definitivamente no es algo que Dios haya dicho o que alguna vez haya pasado por Su mente. Él hizo la creación como un acto de Su amor. Él amó tanto al mundo que dio a Su Hijo unigénito por él. Nosotros somos de Él, comprados y pagados con Su sangre.  Me preguntaba de dónde sacaste la idea de que no existe el infierno, basado en el hecho de que hay numerosos versículos en la Biblia, algunos incluso dichos por Jesús, quien tú crees que es Dios, como yo también, sobre la existencia de un lugar de castigo eterno para las p...
