IN a disturbing new finding, it has been found that many born-again Christians have universalist ideas when it comes to the question of salvation.
This has been revealed in a new Barna analysis of trend data.
According to the analysis, 25 percent of born-again Christians said all people are eventually saved or accepted by God. A similar proportion, 26 percent, said a person’s religion does not matter because all faiths teach the same lessons.
And an even higher proportion, 40 percent, of born-again Christians said they believe Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
This is my argument against universalism – it takes away the central place of the Cross of Christ. If every religion is the same, if everyone is a-okay… then the Cross of Christ is not needed.
Although I note that ‘born-again’ is a phrase of separation, but I digress…
