Don't really know of how many here believe in universal reconciliation, but I have for 11 years out of the 17 years as a believer. Here's a link to the first book that I read about UR. It confirmed what I already believed through knowing God and studying the original languages on my own. There was something very "fishy" about the words behind hell, grave, pit, forever, ever, eternal, everlasting etc. Even with just a Strong's concordance, I could see something was wrong with the common english translations. I went to live outdoors in Hawaii for a winter and God taught me many things. The first day back home, I read Abbott's little book which pushed me further on the way to a deeper and higher journey(deeper and higher - isn't that a contradiction? not in God it isn't...)  It's worth the read...

When you mentioned God teaching you many things while living outdoors in Hawaii. What were some of those things? I would like to hear you elaborate on that, and even how he taught you, if you don't mind.


What do you see when you look at me? Not the visible me that your eyes can see. For in Christ I am dead, yet alive and free. Free to be it all, as he lives in me.
