Just a few simple questions soon gets them to realise this.
In fact, I am beginning to use the following set to actually get some conversations started.
1. What do you think is God's plan for mankind and the world?Most church-goers, regardless of their stated "eternal torment" position, will be inclined to answer these questions in ways that are far more consistent with the universal reconciliation view than with their own.
2. Do you think he will be successful?
3. Do you think Satan is more powerful than God?
4. Do you think our will is more powerful than God's?
5. Whose sins did Jesus pay for?
But they're still reluctant to give up their original position.
Discussion, Bible verses, logic, don't work very often.
Truth just needs to be revealed.
I guess that's never changed.
