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”?

The Lord shall indeed reconcile all things unto Himself. This writing exposes the foolish and pagan, God-vilifying doctrines of eternal torment and annihilation which breed self-righteousness, fear and despair. It declares instead the love, power, glory and total sovereignty of our Almighty Lord Whose blood is infinitely more efficacious than most are led to believe.
We met a fellow with whom we shared the great and true Gospel, or “Good News” that one day, ALL men would come to a saving faith in, and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, in sending Part One of Time For God, there were apparently Scriptures quoted, and statements I made to cause him to think that perhaps I had changed my mind.
According to this atrocious doctrine, a trillion years from now, the damned will continue to scream and writhe in terrible agony with no respite, the torment only beginning. In the meantime, the One Who laid down His life for them, and then put them in those circumstances, is at rest with His beloved, enjoying fellowship with them and they with Him.
