- Defining The Issues:
-Other deceiving titles used to make reference to this doctrine of demons would include ultimate reconciliation, universal salvation, universal restitution, universal restoration, and the doctrine of inclusion.
- Biblical Refutation Of Universalism:
2.) The theme throughout the Bible is that sin will ultimately lead up to spiritual death, if not repented of and forgiven by God (Genesis 2:17; Ezekiel 18:1-5; 9; 20-24; Matthew 10:28; 13:49-50; 25:31-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 8:10-18; John 3:15-21; 36; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 5:5-7; Galatians 5:19-21; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-10; James 4:4; Revelation 20:4-21:5; 22:14-15).
3.) Few people are doing God's will, and those who are not remain unsaved (Matthew 7:15-23). The wages of sin is death; eternal life is a gift from God (Romans 6:23).
4.) We are saved trough the transforming power of the gospel, if we hold fast to its teachings by faith and trust in the work of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:2). Any different gospel message, which includes that of universalism, is to automatically be condemned (Galatians 1:8-9).
5.) While it is true that Jesus died on the cross for the sins of mankind, the Kingdom of God was only prepared for the people who love and serve Him (1 Corinthians 2:9; Revelation 20:12-15).
