"Age Lasting" Hell of Universalist Church HTML version
 THE HELL PROBLEM
Gary Amirault, a Tentmaker Minister in an e-mail to me said, "Most universalists I
know who believe in 'age-during correction,' do NOT see it as God
torturing people in a literal lake or anything like that, they see it as
simply correcting or teaching them further." If they call it Hell or something else,
they still have a place where the all the lost to go after the judgment for an "age." They
have made Hell into an age lasting place where the all the lost are corrected and then go
to Heaven. What if some would not repent then? Will God make them repent against their
G. Jessup said, "We can be sure there will be judgment, punishment,
corrections, or whatever kind of 'attitude adjustments' necessary for the
unbelievers according to their works, and for some it could be very long
and painfully excruciating: but forever?" He did not give one passage from the
Bible to prove this "attitude adjustment," and I cannot find where they try to prove it in
any of their writing. Maybe the reason they do not is that they know there is no proof. If
they had proof, I am sure they would use it in bold print. That there will be a second
chance after death is opposed to what is taught in the Bible.
 THEY MUST PROVE THAT ALL THE LOST ARE NOW ALIVE SOMEPLACE
OR WILL BE ALIVE THERE, THAT THERE IS SUCH A PLACE WHATEVER
NAME THEY GIVE IT.
 THAT THE LOST WILL BE THERE FOR ONLY AN "AGE" OF DISCIPLINARY
 AND THAT ALL WILL REPENT AND WILL END UP IN HEAVEN.
They must disprove the "Hell" that many Protestants believe, but at the same time
prove there is some kind of a "Hell" that is "age lasting" and not eternal. As is shown in
the above quotation Universalist do not believe any will forever be in the lake of fire that
is not a literal lake of fire, and they do not believe the Protestant view of Gehenna;
therefore, they must prove that God will torment all who do not believe in Christ in this
lifetime, some for a short time, some will be tormented more, some tormented much
more extremely. G. Jessup said, "We can be sure there will be judgment,
punishment, corrections, or whatever kind of 'attitude adjustments'
necessary for the unbelievers according to their works, and for some it
could be very long and painfully excruciating." I have not seen where they say
why there will be a judgment. Maybe for God to decide how much He will have to
torment them and how much He will torment Satan and his demons to make them repent.
Whatever forms the Universalist says the torment will be, physical, mentally, or
whatever, it would still be God doing the tormenting.
UNIVERSALIST MUST PROVE THAT THERE WILL BE AN "AGE" OF
ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT. They say there has been many "ages," and will be an "age"
after the resurrection in which "judgment, punishment, corrections, or whatever
