At the End of the Ages - The Abolition of Hell
Is hell forever? Most Bible teachers today say that the righteous go to heaven, and the wicked to hell, FOREVER! But is this what the Bible teaches? 'At the End of the Ages' presents evidence that the Bible, in the original languages, reveals that one day ALL mankind will be saved. Through time our Bible translations have become biased through the official teachings of 'The Church.'The author argues that teaching about an eternal hell slanders God, and it prevents many from having faith because the arguments in support of an eternal torment are illogical. Would a God of love keep many souls alive forever just to torment them because they failed to 'accept Jesus Christ' in this lifetime?The author shows that the Bible does not teach this. The 'lake of fire' is not forever, but only 'for the eons,' and exists for the purpose of correcting, not tormenting. The purpose of 'the eons' (mistranslated 'eternity') is to bring ALL mankind to the point where God's authority is recognized, and every knee bows before Him.Other books taking this position are usually very scholarly and difficult to follow. 'At the End of the Ages' is written with the average reader in mind.
Ancient history of universalism : from the time of the apostles, to the fifth general council : with an appendix, tracing the doctrine to the Reformation
This treatise presents the history of universalism from the time of the apostles to its condemnation in the Fifth General Council, 553 AD, with an appendix tracing the doctrine down to the era of the Reformation. The attentive reader will discover that the ancient history of universalism is naturally distinguished, by certain peculiarities, into three successive periods: the first, extending to the year 190; the second running to the year 390 or 394; and the third, reaching to the Fifth General Council in 553 AD. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty, faded or difficult to read.
Christ Triumphant: Or, Universalism Asserted
Originally published over 100 years ago, this book attempts to answer the question of questions: Can Evil triumph finally over Good? If we answer affirmatively with the popular creed, we are practically falling into Dualism. But if we reply in the negative, we are teaching Universalism. Such are the issues involved. Men strive to save the popular creed by various modifications: by diminishing the number of the lost, by softening their torments, or by asserting their annihilation. What are all these but so many tacit confessions that men everywhere feel it impossible to maintain the creed still generally professed? This early work on universal reconciliation deals with these things, and more. Like Jukes’ RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS, Allin’s CHRIST TRIUMPHANT includes much interesting church history.
This book tackles Biblical concepts such as the Millennium, the Lake of Fire, Predestination and Election. An interesting chapter explains the effects of Adam's sin on man's nature. The Sovereignty of God is explored, in conjuction with the Restoration of all things, which is God's overall purpose in history. It also gives little-known Church history showing how these vital teachings were lost in the fifth century. This study also explains the three resurrections of barley, wheat, and grape companies in a general overview.

Every day religion or common sense teaching of the Bible
The object of the present series of Bible Readings is to bring out, as far as possible, the common-sense teaching of the Bible in regard to every-day religion. In preparing these Lessons, I have aimed not so much to get at the doctrinal truths of our religion, as at the every-day practical common-sense principles. How to live a Christ-like life in the midst of an un-Christ-like world; how to have inward peace in the midst of outward turmoil; how to see the hand of God in every-day matters, and how to accept the homely details of His will; how to be seated in heavenly places when in the drawing-room, or the kitchen, or the nursery, or the schoolroom, or the shop; when entertaining friends, or darning socks, or selling goods, or managing affairs; how, in short, to apply the principles of our religion to our week-day lives as well as to our Sunday lives; -- this is the object of these Lessons.

Is hell eternal or will God's plan fail?
Love without limit
For fifty years, Princeton-trained minister and newspaper columnist Walter E. Williams has wrestled with the idea of salvation. Finally, he’s come to an extraordinary conclusion: everyone is saved in the end. His reasoning is brilliantly explained in his new book, Love Without Limit: A Personal Journey to the Heart of God.
This beautiful and amazing book will surely bring comfort to many by clearly showing that they will be saved. That assurance can be found in scripture and in God’s unlimited and unconditional love. Because everyone is a mixture of good and evil, in the last judgment God will not sort the good people from the bad. Instead, God will free everyone from the evil that torments them, so they can enjoy heaven purified and free from trouble.
It would be irresponsible to imply that there are no consequences from the way we live our lives. So the book goes on to show, through analysis of Christ’s Sermon on the Mount, that God’s will is the wisest way to live. Christ’s loving advice leads to the best and most beautiful life possible. That is the real reason we should try to find and follow God’s good guidance. Love Without Limit even explains why loving your enemies makes sense.
T his book goes beyond explaining God’s will. It also uses psychological insights to help the reader achieve these ethical ideals. For example, it explains how to overcome anger, insults, condemnation and even benefit from criticism, while building self-esteem. It also helps people love and accept themselves and others.
Mercy and judgement
Myth One proves through scriptural references that no one will suffer eternally in hell! Man's first birth is as a human with a maximum life span of 120 years. After his first death, man is simply dead. If man accepts Jesus as his Savior, he becomes an heir to eternal life. Upon the Second Coming of Jesus, the heirs to eternal life are born a second time (or born again) as spirits which live forever. The unsaved are resurrected from their graves as humans. Those who do not accept Jesus as their Savior are cast into the lake of fire and die their second human death. The death is eternal, not their act of dying! They will never live again. Those born again as spirits then rule the earth forever with their Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Do not fear the truth. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. The first false belief we are taught is that all humans are born with immortality. This is the immortal soul myth, or Myth One. Read Myth One and show me where I have misunderstood the scriptures!

Raising Hell - Christianity's Most Controversial Doctrine Put Under Fire
Have you ever wondered...do earthly parents love their children more than God loves us? Does God ask you to forgive your enemies—as many times as necessary—when He is not willing to do the same? Is being punished forever for sins committed in a short lifetime really a demonstration of justice? Does everybody get the same fair chance to believe in Jesus before they die? Most of all, if hell is mankind's worst possible fate, and if God is truly loving, then...
- Why does He fail to mention hell in Genesis as
the price for sin?
Dare to question. What have you got to lose? If you've ever had doubts or questions about the justification for eternal torment, Raising Hell will open your eyes to a radical new look at God's love for all mankind—and what the Good News is really about. Picking up where Rob Bell and others leave off, Julie Ferwerda offers compelling evidence as to why she now believes the doctrine of eternal torment is the biggest deception of the modern Church.
The Golden Thread: God’s Promise of Universal Salvation
In our modern pluralistic world, the barriers imposed by the old doctrine of religious exclusivity are confronted every day by individuals, families, and nations. Now more than ever, the inspirational message of God’s Universal and eternal love for all humanity needs to be retold. By reacquainting readers with the God who is too good to condemn anyone to Eternal Hell, The Golden Thread, God’s Promise of Universal Salvation offers a Biblical interpretation present in Christianity from the earliest Jesus-Followers to the 21st Century. Salvation for all is known as Universalism, and the idea that all people will be saved—either immediately or eventually—is called Universal Restoration.
Proponents of Universalism can be found today within a wide variety of denominations from post-Vatican II Catholics to Primitive Baptists. The Golden Thread brings together the Bible verses that ancient and modern Universalist theologians have used to show that God is the parent of all and, in the end, will save the “Lost Sheep” and the “Prodigal Son.” The Golden Thread continues with 2,000 years of Christian mystical religious experience and modern-day near-death experiences—testimony to God’s abiding love for all.
Dr. Ken R. Vincent is a writer whose books include The Magi: From Zoroaster to the Three Wise Men and Visions of God from the Near Death Experience. He is a Board Member of the Universalist Herald. Dr. Vincent attends Covenant Church, “An Ecumenical, Liberal Baptist Congregation” in Houston, Texas.
