asserts that everyone is a Christian if they say so. Universalism goes
a step further by asserting that all human beings are God's kin by virtue of
the fact that God is man's creator; when in reality, only a very select few
men are members of God's household.
When human beings are born into the world, they come into
it as Adam's children— mere biological organisms manufactured from the dust
of the earth with a three-pound lump of flabby organic tissue sufficing for
a mind; and not even all three of those pounds are dedicated to cognitive
processes. In other words, Adam's posterity are children of the earth just
as he was, rather than children of heaven. In order to become children of
heaven, earth's children have to undergo a second birth; which in reality is
a whole other Genesis.
This second Genesis I'm talking about isn't optional, no,
it's a must if a child of the earth is to have any hope at all of becoming a
child of heaven.
● John 3:3 . . I assure
you, unless you are born from above, you can never see the kingdom of
● John 3:6-8 . .
Humans beings can reproduce only human life, but it’s the Holy Spirit who
gives new life from heaven. So don't be surprised at my statement that you
must be born again.
The Declaration of Independence states that all men are
created equal. Yes, that's true, but not all men remain equal. Those of us
who have undergone the second creation are far and away superior to those
who have undergone only the first. Those of us who have undergone the second
creation as per Jesus' testimony in John 3:3-8 are no longer in any danger
of being cast into Hell.
● John 5:24 . . I
assure you, those who heed my message, and rely upon God who sent me, have
eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have
already passed from Death into Life.
● Rom 5:8-10 . .
Since we have been rendered innocent in God's sight by the blood of Christ,
he will certainly protect us from God's judgment.
● 1Ths 5:9 . . For God
did not appoint us to suffer wrath, but to receive salvation through our
Lord Jesus Christ.
also states that all men are created with certain inalienable rights. But
the right to be one of heaven's children is not inalienable; no, it is a
granted right conferred only upon people who believe.
● John 1:12-13 . .To
all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right
to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of
human whim, or a husband's passion: but born of God.
