Before I deconverted I was a catholic and I believed in universalism/universal reconciliation... but I now understand that it's ilogical and dosent make sense....mostly because the Bible os chalk full of contradictions.... how do you guys understand that concept of universalism before you deconverted???

RE: Christian universalism?
I understood to be a cherry-picked version of the gospel. Haha! Is there any version that isn't cherry-picked?

I didn't have a very deep understanding of what it was, just that they didn't validate the "true" gospel of Jesus.

This was from a Charismatic/Pentecostal perspective.

The bible does not contradict itself about universal reconciliation.

Well... no Pops.

Other then it's completely pointless. As in, if there are other sophonts some where out in the void.. Why would they care about our beliefs?

And... how does the action, as in death/sacrifice, of one Demi-god to a God's actions travel faster than light anyway? Consider

Edit: Facepalm Silly me! The actions also have to flow backwards in time as well! Since all the people born and died before the sacrifice of Jebus need to be saved as well.

Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine.
