According to Scripture, each of us must stand before the judgement seat of God when our time on earth is done. Christians do not contend with this statement. However, there is not a consensus on what follows. Most Christians maintain that there are only two possible outcomes. The first, of which, follows an innocent verdict: […]

I think I have seen from afar something of the final prison of all, the innermost cell of the debtor of the universe; I will endeavour to convey what I think it may be. —George MacDonald The following has been adapted by Charles Watson Sr. from George MacDonald’s Unspoken Sermons Series Two, The Last Farthing: […]
“This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” —Matthew 15:8–9 One of the largest dissimilarities between the Old & New Covenant concerns the distinguishing of God-given commandments from those given in the appearance of divine authority. […]
“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” —Matthew 16:18 ESV This verse, in particular, is one of the most reassuring verses in all the Scriptures. It is a promise—one with which many have found solace. In […]

How often have you heard, “They were not saved to begin with.” when someone claims to have defected from the Faith? Christians who believe in eternal security or “once saved; always saved” are usually those who would dare to say such a thing. However, this blog has nothing to do with that theology. Rather, I […]
For some reason, the Church, at large, has come to assume that God’s justice is at odds with his other attributes; as though his justice “must be taken into consideration” whenever his grace, mercy, or love is mentioned. Since this concept is one of the main topics in my book- Hell in a Nutshell- The […]
Since I firmly believe in the doctrine of Universal Reconciliation, I am often asked, “Will Hitler be in heaven?” This question is often asked as a rhetorical question. Many assume that the answer is emphatically: No!; if not a “Hell no!” If anyone deserves to suffer forever, it is him. Right?! Although the Bible states […]
Hell in a Nutshell (early 2017) challenges the prevalent Christian doctrine of postmortem judgement by calling into question how it effects our understanding of God’s key attributes. Following this detailed examination, Watson skillfully presents his theory that the doctrine of Universal Reconciliation is sound both scripturally and philosophically.
