Sunday, October 1st

Contrary to what you may have thought, there is a way to interpret St. Paul that does not render his doctrine one of salvation for only a minority ‘elect’ to the exclusion of the majority of humankind. In fact, within Paul’s writings themselves, it is less difficult than one thinks to support the venerable, though minority view, of universal salvation for all. Drawing on the work of philosopher and theologian Thomas Talbott, this talk just scratches the surface of a controversial topic.
