What is universalism and is it biblical? What is pluralistic universalism? Is eternal conscious punishment true and biblical? What is the method of universalists? How do we integrate the love of God and eternal conscious punishment?

In this Credo Video, Alan Gomes discusses Universalism and Eternal Conscious Punishment.


Read more on universalism and eternal conscious punishment from Dr. Gomes and other contributors in the latest issue of Credo Magazine: Will all Be Saved? There are few questions as sensitive as this one. It is sure to provoke an emotional response. For many, to answer “no” is to compromise the very character of God. A God who does not save everyone cannot be a God of love. In response, sometimes evangelicals rattle off texts that say Jesus is the only way or texts that teach the doctrine of hell, all the while neglecting the heart of the matter: the character of God himself. In this issue, pastors and professors alike look at the claims of universalism and show that the reason they fumble is first and foremost because they compromise attributes of God like justice and, yes, even love.
