A world of hope only exists when we relinquish the belief that we know with certainty who is saved from damnation and who is expelled from the eternal love of God.
This means that we live in the love and glory of God based on the content of our character, based on how we’ve treated all those whom we’ve met, and how we’ve made effort to live wholesome lives searching for truth and justice for all.
The movie “Hellbound” (available on netflix) does such a tremendously great job of outlining the different dogmas or beliefs which are the foundations of the various Christian and theistic sects which include ‘hell’ or eternal damnation and suffering in their beliefs.
Do we believe that God is all powerful and has power over evil, or that God is all loving and that his love extends to all his children, making grace available to all who want to be a ‘child of god’?
Or do we believe that God is hateful and has predestined some of his children to eternal damnation, or annihilation?
Or do we believe that God is not all powerful but allows evil to take away some of his children and keep them from salvation or redemption?
Do we believe that two thirds of Humanity are excluded from being ‘children of God’ because they haven’t found Christ?
Our beliefs are predominantly based on our socialization and followings of various faiths and religions, until we challenge these beliefs on their consequences of whether they lead us to segregation and separatism, lead us to violence against others and exclusive treatment of others being less than ourselves, we cannot claim to know and live and follow the truth.
As soon as we decide and believe that others do not deserve redemption or salvation and eternal love of the Father then we become less ourselves: less than what we are meant to be: universal children of God, all worthy of receiving the Divine Grace of the Supreme Being, united in empathy and compassion for all sentient beings and Humanity.
We are all capable of looking away from God, making mistakes, choosing evil, inflicting pain and suffering on others, with and without intent.
The gift of Grace allows us to choose the option of universalism to believe that we are all worthy of redemption, of eternal peace and joy, bliss and freedom from pain and suffering.
