What is Universalism?
Universalism is the belief that everyone will be saved. Some sincere Christians believe it but is it true? Our only way of knowing is by searching the Bible. What we would like to be true is not necessarily true. What God says, is true.
Types of Universalism and Related Beliefs
In its broadest sense, universalism is the belief that ultimately everyone will be saved - everyone: people of all religions, people who have lived evil lives, etc.
Christian universalism is the belief that ultimately everyone will be saved but it will be because they have come to faith in Jesus. Salvation is available in Jesus only.
Annihilationism is the belief that those who are not saved do not suffer eternal punishment but are annihilated.
Judgement And Hell - John Stott (Truth According To Scripture)
Only those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ will be saved. Those who have not will suffer eternal punishment in hell.
