1 Dr. Mike Stallard Baptist Bible Seminary

2  People are capable of viewing God as a God of judgment (p. 37)  Earthly future for God’s kingdom (heaven and earth merge together – p )  Clear testimony of his salvation experience (p. 194)

3  The idea of hell in traditional Christianity is a violent, untrue doctrine  The afterlife has more continuity with the present life than usually believed  Universalism or an open-ended future is the only option that allows God’s love to win

4  Mocking, sarcastic tone  Raises false concerns and makes caricatures  Use of worst examples to make points

5  Misquotes Martin Luther and makes him a universalist (p. 106)

6 Examples:  John 3:16 (p. vii)  Phil. 2:10-11—every knee shall bow (p. 99)  Rev – no blood and violence (p. 112)  John 14:6 – exclusive and inclusive (p. 154)

7 Postmodern Strategies  Present is how the future will be (cp. Mt 22)  “Forever” is not a biblical category  Way of God is never violent (cp. Rev 19)  Lake of fire ignored for most part  No clear definition of the gospel

8 Postmodern Worldview  Questions to keep the conversation going not to find answers (remember Matt 22)  Rejection of anything harsh
