James Favager, D. D. (2018). The Case for Universal Redemption Briefly Stated : Greater Hope for the Restoration of All Things. Retrieved from

Most modern Christians will have parents, wives, children, friends or other relations who are not believers, either because of indifference or adherence to another faith or even hostility to religion in general. If traditional ‘damnationist’ theology (theology that asserts the ever-lasting punishment of the damned, also known as ‘eternal conscious torment or ‘ETC’)) is correct all these loved ones will be eternally lost and will suffer the torments of Hell, separated from the love of God for ever. Fortunately there are good (Biblical and non-Biblical) grounds to believe that damnationism is not only repugnant but actually unscriptural.

The case against the doctrine of eternal damnation is examined and rejected in favour of the hope of universal restoration.

The only viable theology of redemption is therefore Universalism. It cannot resolve all the theological problems that face ethical monotheists but it does offer a far more promising basis for attempting to do so and renders some of the difficulties considerably less pressing. Given the utter inadequacy of its rivals – inadequacy on both the moral and intellectual level - we can enter its portals with faith and confident hope.
