Transcript of Vulcano Globe prezi template 20293
the doctrine that knowledge, truth, and morality exist in relation to culture, society, or historical context, and are not absolute.
On top of it!
all people will be saved by God because of his unconditional love.
a theological doctrine that all human beings will eventually be saved.
All Truth is
As long as
Scholars generally agree that the first ‘relativist’ was the ancient Greek philosopher Protagoras
"The way things appear to me, in that way they exist for me; and the way things appear to you, in that way they exist for you" -Protagoras
right for you
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. -(Matthew 23:25-28 ESV)
At it's center, Christianity isn't based on a moral idea, but rather, Christianity is based on a Messiah, Jesus Christ.
And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.
(1 Corinthians 15:14-19 ESV)
Based on the idea that everyone from every religion should be able to do more than just get along, every religion should affirm the other. At the end of the day, all religions end up in the same place anyway.
“Jesus, Jew, Mohammed—all true.”
"You can't possibly believe that Jesus is the only way to God, I believe He is, "A", way, but there are many ways. It's ridiculous to think anything else..."
No one gets to
the Father, except
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control;
(Galatians 5:23 ESV)
Christianity says, "Since we can know Jesus, and because Jesus Christ is Absolute Truth, then Absolute Truth can be known through the man Jesus Christ.
A good and loving God could never send people to Hell for eternity.
Because of Christians not knowing what they believe, and why they believe what they believe, slowly over time Universalism has started to drip into the mainline vein of Christianity.
Universalists teach that all people will eventually be saved through the atonement of Jesus. They maintain that the Bible teaches that God wants all men to be saved therefore all men will be saved. In this, they deny the eternal nature of hell as conscious punishment of the lost. Two of the most prominent verses appealed to by them to support their position are as follows:
"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; 4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth" (1 Tim. 2:3-4).
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Pet. 3:9).
If these three verses were all that we had to go on, then the universalists might be able to produce a strong argument. But, since we do not make doctrine out of one or two or even three verses but the whole of God's counsel, we know that the universalist teaching cannot be true. For example, in Matt. 25:46 Jesus said, "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." The same Greek word (aionion) is used to describe both punishment and life. If eternal (aionion) life is indeed eternal (aionion), then eternal (aionion) punishment is also eternal (aionion). Also, consider Mark 3:28-29 where Jesus said, "Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; 29but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin". Verse 28 says that all sins shall be forgiven. Verse 29 clarifies the statement and flatly says that there is a sin that "never has forgiveness.". Likewise, consider Rev. 20:10 which says, "And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." And compare the usage of "forever and ever" with 2 Tim. 4:18, "The Lord will deliver me from every evil deed, and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen." In each verse, the exact same Greek phrase is used.

"John remembers Jesus saying, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'
This is as wide and expansive a claim as a person can make.
What he doesn't say is how, or when, or in what manner the mechanism functions that gets people to God through him. He doesn't even state that those coming to the Father through him will even know that they are coming exclusively through him. He simply claims that whatever God is doing in the world to know and redeem and love and restore the world is happening through him."
