I wrote about this some years ago
(Yes...I was posting on this forum YEARS ago!)
And wrote about meeting Madeleine L'Engle at my Alma Mater- Evangel College (now called University- God know why). She wrote A Wrinkle in Time, which won an award and made quite a ripple. She was raked over the coals by my fellow students for being a Universalist. Really- I thought they did this not because of her expression of faith, but rather, because she was dressed in an unconventional (we're talking Missouri in the really 80's here) manner - in purple from head to toe- a very glamorous New Yorker!
Be that as it may, conservatives hate the thought that God's love wins out in the end. The want their cup of fire and brimstone so they can go to bed happy at night. They just have to know that someone besides themselves has been damned. That's all it is really- knowing that someone else hasn't taken one's place in Glory. As if there is a finite space, a limited amount of Love to go around.
Cheap thought really.
Only so much Love.
Not a way to live, in my estimation.
Be the love you seek.
