Universal Reconciliation is not a “received doctrine” for me or any of the several other Adventist-leaning people I know who inexplicably found ourselves “there” on our journeys.
Each of us arrived at it idiosyncratically, on essentially nonergodic paths, and therefore it’s hard to ‘splain, even to each other.
I don’t think it can or ever should be taught as some kind of received doctrine from the pulpit. It is “unpreachable,” as far as I can see.
It would doubtless cause endless controversy and confusion, to no good end.
Personally, I associate it with the 1888 Message, which I think is also unpreachable, and with The Elijah Message, which is also essentially unpreachable, in my view.
Adventists are often accused of being elitists, if not megalomaniacs, and this sounds suspiciously like “Remnant-of-the-Remnant-of-the-Remnant” elitism. Or what some are pleased to call “lunatic fringe.”
Hence, fear and trembling and hesitancy to say more—not because I will be considered a heretic (that’s the street where I live: “Nothing-To-Lose Street”), but because there’s no satisfactory way to talk about the inexpressible, and because I’m not in any sense “living it,” so…with no “living proof,” why talk about it, you know? So that’s why I keep telling myself: Just. Walk. Away.
With that disclaimer, here’s a wiki:
