Christian Universalism

That sage philosopher, lightsaber virtuoso, and Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker once said long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away that nobody is truly lost forever, and in so doing took his place among Christian giants such as St. Paul, Origen, and Gregory of Nyssa, and modern-day controversialists like David Bentley Hart among other notable theologians throughout Christian history. If we are to believe that God shall be all in all, then all must find their uttermost end in the Creator who has both called them into existence, and by grace called them to himself through the long, painful march of time. I know that many can in good conscience worship a God who would save some, or even most, yet fail to save all. However, this is not the God I worship. He is the One who mysteriously calls all into existence ex nihilo and calls them to himself from the superabundance of his grace. While I make no pretense to be part of the guild of theologians – I trade mostly in poetry and stories, I do make the unambiguous claim that the gospel is only intelligible if it is, in the final estimation, when all ages are accounted for, shown to be intelligible for all – because Christ must at last hand over the kingdom of the cosmos to the Father who shall be in the end what he was in the beginning, namely All in all. Here are some of the posts I have compiled, and links to other pertinent articles that defend Christian Universalism (also referred to as Apokatastasis):

Introduction: “Shall All Be Well” (*Note: “Shall All Be Well” is Part 7 in my “To Hell With Them?” Series. I am placing it at the front of this page because I think it is the best introduction I can give to the gravity of the Christian Universalism argument)
