The false doctrine of universalism

Universalism is the belief that all people will eventually go to heaven. Universalists believe that a loving God would not allow His children to suffer forever in hell. They are wrong; those who go to hell are not God’s children. Only those who have repented and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior are His children. All people are God’s creation, but not all people are His children. In fact, there are many Bible verses that refute this false belief.

In John 7:33, Jesus spoke to the Pharisees and said: “I will not be with you for long, and I will go to Him who sent Me; you will seek me, and you will not find me; and where I am, there you cannot come. ” Jesus just told the Pharisees that they could not go to heaven because they were the children of the devil (John 8:44). Jesus also told them in John 8:21, “I am going away, and you will seek Me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come. ”

The universalist believes that everyone goes to heaven, but if that were true, then why the cross? Why believe that Jesus died on the cross for us when all religions will lead us to heaven? Why then does the Bible teach us to repent of our sins and believe with all our heart in Jesus Christ, and believe that God raised Him from the dead? Why are Christians told to go and preach the gospel?

You have a choice: believe the universalist … or believe the words of the apostles, the authors of the Bible, and most importantly, the words of Jesus.

Jesus said in John 6:40, “This is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have eternal life.” Only Jesus Christ paid for our sins and told us that we must repent.

We must believe, as Romans 10: 9-10 says, that “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Only those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ will enter heaven. This is very clear: if you do not believe what Jesus said, you will not go to heaven. Universalism is heresy and teaches a false gospel. Galatians 1: 8 says: “But even if we or an Angel from heaven begin to preach to you a gospel that is different from the one that we have preached to you, then let it be cursed!” (RNP).

Did you read that clearly? Those who teach universalism are cursed. It would be wise to think twice before teaching or adhering to this false, demonic doctrine.
