The Golden Thread
"The Golden Thread"
"God's Promise of Universal Salvation"
In our modern pluralistic world, the barriers imposed by the old doctrine of religious exclusivity are confronted every day by individuals, families, and nations. Now more than ever, the inspirational message of God's Universal and eternal love for all humanity needs to be retold. By reacquainting readers with the God who is too good to condemn anyone to Eternal Hell, "The Golden Thread, God's Promise of Universal Salvation" offers a Biblical interpretation present in Christianity from the earliest Jesus-Followers to the 21st Century. Salvation for all is known as Universalism, and the idea that all people will be saved-either immediately or eventually-is called Universal Restoration.
Proponents of Universalism can be found today within a wide variety of denominations from post-Vatican II Catholics to Primitive Baptists. "The Golden Thread" brings together the Bible verses that ancient and modern Universalist theologians have used to show that God is the parent of all and, in the end, will save the 'Lost Sheep" and the 'Prodigal Son." "The Golden Thread" continues with 2,000 years of Christian mystical religious experience and modern-day near-death experiences-testimony to God's abiding love for all.
