Why are so many people threatened by Universalism?
Why so many Christian Churches have spent time and money to speak against it?
I think "threatened" is an improper description. They (Christians) realize it is wrong and the origins and danger of this kind of thinking. "There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 14:12)
Satan comes disguised as an angel of light. What seems good is actually evil is disguise, but one only knows that if s/he has the spiritual eyes to see. "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11:14)
"In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:4) The "god of this world" is Satan.
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." (1 Timothy 4:1)
Unfortunately Satan has deceived and fooled many and the God may have given some people over to their own desires: "So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels." (Psalm 81:12)
Because Universalism is accepting and living equally with other beliefs. Most churches believe they are correct, everyone believes their beliefs are correct. But Christian faith says it is wrong to support someone else's beliefs since they are incorrect. Since accepting other faiths to be equal would be supporting a false belief, they do not support them.
Because universalism cannot be true. Jesus said that "I am the way, the truth, and the life" - John 14:6. Christianity is either true or false, but it cannot be lumped in with any other religions. Christianity stands apart from the religions on this world. They focus on what we have to do, Christianity is what God has done for us. Both cannot be true.

couples? It seems that in this strongly pronatalist society, there is still the underlying premise, the more, the better. People are continuously exhorted to have children by their parents, friends, religion, relatives, and the outer society. Oftentimes, many people have children much...

Why are so many people selfish and mean, even to family members?Maybe I shouldn't be surprised any more, but why are so many family members selfish and hurtful to other family members? Life is precious, and flying by, and even if someone isn't your favorite person, why can't more just be kind...

Why are some Christians threatened by Atheists?Atheists are not a particularly large or unified group, so why is there this impression (in religious media and discussion groups) that atheists are a threat? Usually it comes in the form of questions like "why are atheists so mean?" or...

On Facebook I know of at least two profiles where the people running them have offended some Pagans by comments they have made from a Christian viewpoint and links they have posted. I have seen this sort of problem before. So my question is: can Christians and Pagans be friends or do the belief...

Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other people have different lives and different experiences, and let them believe how they...
