Gary Amirault (Tentmaker.org) gets the infamous Skull and Crossbones Award for his dangerous teachings. He spreads his beloved doctrine and heresy of Universalism (everyone will be saved) as Christian truth. That teaching is also known as the Doctrine of Inclusion, Ultimate Reconciliation, Universal Salvation, Universal Redemption or Universal Restoration. Gary Amirault propagates this false doctrine primarily by:
● presenting partial truths as the whole truth
● citing something instead of the Scriptures for evidence —namely the ante Nicene fathers, who believed in Universalism (giving the false impression they all believed the same way, which they didn’t)
● distorting the few Scriptures and not comparing them to other related Scriptures
● misapplying God’s love while overlooking His justice and righteousness
● wrongly thinking God’s will in salvation is always done among man
Gary Amirault (and all others like him) have to distort, deny, contradict and/or avoid all those Scriptures to embrace the dangerous doctrine that all will go to heaven because Jesus died for everyone.
■ WARNING: Gary Amirault is not correctly handling the Scriptures and, therefore, is spreading a fine-sounding lie (and heresy) as God’s truth to the eternal and spiritual detriment of all those who believe it.

Why is it that when non-believers debate with believers, believers always use verses and scripts from Holy Books as proof? Dude, we don't believe in it.
"Perhaps the most compelling of evidences demonstrating that the Bible is the word of God is its unswerving ability to accurately predict future events, often in minute details. Specific prophesies are conspicuously absent from the 26 other religious books that claim to be scripture, including the Muslim's Koran, the Book of Mormon, the Hindu Vedas, and Buddhist writings. This in itself should be a major eye-opener to the honest skeptic. "
Accuracy Of Prophecy
That's a very good question RomeByFire...
The reason is because it IS in fact proof.
Years ago I had an undeniable supernatural encounter that began simply by opening a Bible.
This experience left me undeniable PROOF that the Bible was a supernatural book.
I was NOT a Christian and I had NO idea what "Christianity" even was at the time.

Which God are you referring to?
There are many gods...
Not according to Abrahamic religions.
Isaiah 45:7 I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things.
Well I have asked God to make this world a better place for my daughter and I fully expect him to fulfill his promise. It is only faith in the love of God that allows me to believe in such a fairy tale. Love and peace on earth for my daughter, maybe I am crazy but I expect a miracle and God knows I will serve him in any way he asks to help make this miracle come true.
Although I completely disagree on your take of God, from a strictly humanist perspective you might be right on your perspective of God being a sadist...it's such a burden to realize how faith and reason are usually at odds.
