DID YOU KNOW...?

PLEASE READ JONATHAN STEPPS LATEST BLOG AND MY RESPONSE TO IT AT "NEO-REFORMATION". JUST CLICK ON IT OVER THERE TO THE RIGHT UNDER MY LINKS.
IS THIS GOOD NEWS OR WHAT??????????
For over 400 years the early Christian Church leaders taught UNIVERSAL REDEMPTION for all humanity. Also they taught UNIVERSAL RECONCILIATION for all. As well, SALVATION of ALL of humanity was taught in, by, for, and through Jesus Christ.
The concepts of "Hell" and "Hell FIRE TORMENT" were invented by the Greek philosopher, Plato, in the 4th Cen. B.C. and were imported into the church in the 5th Cen. A.D. by St. Augustine of Hippo, an avid student and admirer of Plato's philosophy.
The Triune God had originally "Adopted" all of humanity into His life from before the foundation of the world ( Ephesians 1:3-14) and made it a reality in the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ.( Ephesians 2:6)
THEREFORE, YOU and I are the children God ALWAYS wanted to be with Him forever. God LOVES YOU AND LIKES YOU. God Accepts us. He doesn't always 'approve' of all we do, but He ACCEPTS us and makes all things RIGHT in JESUS.( II Cor.5:19-21)
Jesus did it ALL for us. Jesus paid it all. Jesus connects us to the Triune God and places us into His life by and through His life. Jesus really is THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE for all humanity.
What this means for you and me is that we are SECURE in our life and our future in the life of God. In our eternity. In our future.
