    Everyone gets Saved, and there is no Hell:

    The reason that every person throughout humanity does get SAVED is because Jesus paid the punishment (or penalty) in full for all of humanity, and so not even one (1) sinful sheep will remain lost or left out.

    Every claim contrary to that simple truth is just human fear and confusion and absurdities.

    We are to love our enemies just as God loves His enemies = Matthew 5:43-48, and love does not burn people in torment and there is no place of Hell.

    As to the "Lake of Fire" the scriptures say that the fire purifies and cleans the person.
    See it here = If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. KJV, 1 Corinthians 3:15

    The sinful works shall be burned - while the person is SAVED.

    I would agree that all men are forgiven; however, the difference seems to be between whether or not a person avails themselves of forgiveness. In this model God doesn't condemn a person to hell (or extinction, etc) but the person chooses it over living loved. I think people can choose to live condemned throughout eternity - condemned by sin, living with the consequences of sin, and so forth.

    This allows for God to completely forgive but the person choosing to live in pain (pain not caused by God or his wrath).
    Actually YOU put Trump in the White House. He wouldn't have gotten 1% of the vote if it wasn't for the widespread spiritual and cultural devastation caused by progressive policies. There's no "this country" left with your immigration policies, your "allies" are worthless and even more suicidal than you are and democracy is a sick joke that I hope nobody ever thinks about repeating when the current order collapses. - Darth_Executor striking a conciliatory note in Civics 101

    Oh, another universalist. Well, what about the folk who don't want to be saved? Forcing them to be in God's presence would still be hell for them. Keep in mind that I believe hell is a state of shame and not a place of fire and torture.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    There truly is nothing and nowhere in the Bible that says people have any realistic choice, and it is egotistical to think that people have any real choice against the will of God.

    Choosing sin is to hurt our self.

    When God declares these words = COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE, Revelations 18:4 - then that is not a request and no one can say or choose to not come out - it is a command.

    No one chose to be born, and no one really chooses to die, and no one gets to choose about being resurrected or of being saved.

    Our human choices are very limited.

    It does not matter whatever disobedient children want or do not want, as the Father rules over the children.

    When people meet our Maker then there will be great repentance and universal forgiveness.
    Romans 14:
    10 "... we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
    11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
    12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God."

    The payment given by Christ will stand for every person to receive their SALVATION.

    In that case you are much farther ahead then others.

    There are different kinds of shame, as in healthy shame and toxic unhealthy shame, and our rightful shame will last forever, the other kind will not.

    So you'd hold that people don't ever disobey God?

    People disobey the 10 commandments all of the time.
    You've not illustrated how this command is any different.

    If you're going to be one of those nutjobs that reads conclusions into verses that aren't even addressing the topic then I'm out of here.
    I've no patience for the John Martin bug-eyed approach to discussing scripture.

    This is your conclusion.
    You've not demonstrated it.

    True.
    This doesn't address your larger point.
    Actually YOU put Trump in the White House. He wouldn't have gotten 1% of the vote if it wasn't for the widespread spiritual and cultural devastation caused by progressive policies.

    The following verses, and their surrounding context destroy your claims. There are a few things we can learn about "hell" in these passages, 1) it's eternal, 2) the devil and his angels will be there, 3) those there will never have rest, day or night, and 4) it's better to be mutilated bodily than to end up there.

    Matthew 18:8 “If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire.

    Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;

    Jude 1:7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

    Matthew 5:29 If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

    Matthew 10:28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

    Matthew 23:33 You serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of hell?

    2 Peter 2:3-5New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

    4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a [a]preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;

    Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

    There is much more that could be said, but these things alone are enough to refute what you've claimed so far.
    Safka, you are NOT "unknown", you were loved by many, and you will not be forgotten. I will always remember you Puginator.

    The 'we' that I've emphasized here is important.
    The 'we', in a letter addressed to Roman Christians, would be other believers.
    The context also makes this very clear.

    That is kind-of true, but to be more accurate then it is just that any human disobedience is minor and insignificant to the bigger picture.

    A child disobeying their parent does not mean the child gets thrown out, because the parent uses the children's disobedience to teach the child, and punishment from a loving parent is just to teach and not to harm.

    Every person is a child of God - and God will SAVE every one of His children.

    Jesus paid the punishment in full.

    And the commandments are there for people to choose life and to live better, instead of the commandments being misused for condemnation.

    I do not know what that means,

    but I welcome any nutjob or bug-eyed approach to talk with me.

    I understand the claim that your God is the God of only a few select people, but I am referring to the God of all humanity, without any person getting lost or left out.

    The text has broader applications, and God is so much bigger than that.
