What if God’s love, perfectly revealed through the cross, restores all things? What if the world is already reconciled in Christ and we are simply awakening to that gospel? What if Christ is our message and we preach to awaken hearts? Derek and Jason dive into our union in Christ and how that impacts everything from knowing our identity to loving our “enemies,” to evangelism, to navigating cross moments in our lives.

    What cognizant christians will take away from ‘the whole world is automatically reconciled to Christ’ suggests the whole world —all humans—are saved for eternity; even if they are not aware nor even have accepted Christ. This is misleading and borderline lie. As your human father said to you, ‘don’t make stuff up son’.

    By grace are ye saved. Grace saves. Love is the motivation behind the grace.

    You r changing the nature of God and Christ by omitting scriptures regarding punishment and eternal torment.

    Let every man be a liar but God be true. I think you and Derek are courting disaster by preaching another gospel—just a thought …

    Scripture is important…much of it will be played back ‘on that day’.
