    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.
