When certain religious people hear us preaching Jesus Christ will reconcile all people to God, in the fullness of times, they wax indignant in their self-righteousness and often protest like Paul Carrington did in his recent letter: “So, live life as if there’s no God, and in the end I’ll be redeemed because, after all, there’s no eternal punishment.”
We asked Paul (and all who leap to such unfounded and reckless conclusions), “Because there is no such thing as punishment that never ends, why do you presume there is no punishment?”
We look forward to the answer, but won’t hold our breath. What answer is there to “checkmate”?
