Evangelical Universalism Forum

I just joined it – have a look here:


I'm almost through Jens Adam's contribution, Paulus und die Versöhnung aller, and am about to start Janowki's Allerlösung. It's a fascinating debate.

HELL helped convert Hitchens' brother from atheism back to theism:

Peter Hitchens: "No doubt I should be ashamed to confess that fear played a part in my return to religion, specifically a painting: Rogier van der Weyden's 15th Century Last Judgement, which I saw in Burgundy while on holiday.
I had scoffed at its mention in the guidebook, but now I gaped, my mouth actually hanging open, at the naked figures fleeing towards the pit of Hell. These people did not appear remote or from the ancient past; they were my own generation. Because they were naked, they were not imprisoned in their own age by time-bound fashions. On the contrary, their hair and the set of their faces were entirely in the style of my own time. They were me, and people I knew. I had a sudden strong sense of religion being a thing of the present day, not imprisoned under thick layers of time. My large catalogue of misdeeds replayed themselves rapidly in my head. I had absolutely no doubt that I was among the damned, if there were any damned. Van der Weyden was still earning his fee, nearly 500 years after his death.
At around the same time I rediscovered Christmas, which I had pretended to dislike for many years."

Just to clarify, Adam and Janowki aren't debating at our forum. {g} Nor are any of us debating them, directly or indirectly. Yet. {g!}

Looking forward to your comments on those two books, Chris!
