Todd Burus has started a series on the theological abuses in the modern evangelical church that lead to universalism (the idea that everyone is going to heaven).
go check it out.
With that groundwork laid, here is my simple thesis. I believe that there are many theological errors in the church today which are leading and/or contributing to a rise in the heretical beliefs of Christian Universalism, the four primary errors being a misunderstanding of the idea that “God is love,” a misunderstanding of salvation by grace alone, the teaching of Free Grace theology as it pertains to perseverance, and the denial of the doctrine of a literal hell. In this post I will deal with the misunderstanding of the phrase “God is love” leaving the others for a later post or two.
