Our Eternal Destiny: A Discussion about Universalism

Next month in Tauranga, Joe Fleener and Bryan Winters will be discussing universalism and the Christian understanding of salvation. Both will be offering different perspectives, with Bryan defending universalism and Joe defending the traditional Christian approach.

With the recent controversy surrounding Rob Bell’s defense of universalism and its place in evangelical orthodoxy, it should be an interesting event.

Our Eternal Destiny.  Who goes to heaven and who goes to hell?

7:00pm to 9:00pm
Bethlehem Community Church, 183 Moffat Rd, Bethlehem, Tauranga

    Hmm… this already seems like a pretty unequal contest. A masters in Divinity vs an Honours in Geography and Economics? One a pastor and ex-Bible College lecturer, the other an ex-teacher and IT guy? Couldn’t you find a similarly qualified person to cover the universalist view?

    Still, it looks interesting and I might have considered going if it was local to me.
