Excerpt from The Unspeakable Gift: The Gift of Eternal Life Through Jesus Christ Our Lord The same may be said of the still more striking concession of the London Missionary Society in con ferring on the same person the honor of moving the adoption of their Report, last May, at Exeter Hall, again without a breath of opposition. I mention these facts to prove to the American Churches what is the state of public opinion here. It is making a decided movement towards open and avowed tolera tion Of what some of us consider the central idea of Revelation - the center whence radiate. All the great gospel doctrines of Justification, Sanctification, Re demption and Resurrection, the Deity and Atonement of Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit, and lastly, the doctrine of Retribution.

According to Christian doctrine, what happens to those who have died? While traditionally it has been said that one group of people spends eternity in heavenly happiness while another group experiences conscious, unending torment in hell, there are other Christians who believe in alternativesthat hell is simply a separation from God, that the lost are simply annihilated and not subject to torment, or that actually, in the end, all will be reconciled to God and live in heavenly glory. The Gift of God Is Eternal Life explores a five-century journey that traces the development and dispersal of the doctrines of universalism and conditional immorality in a compelling narrative collection of short stories. Beginning from when these doctrines were merely whispered about or published anonymously to the days when traveling evangelists preached them in the new and growing American republic, these engaging vignettes show how this once intense debate between Christians has evolved into modern times where such ideas can be freely discussedeven in mainstream television and evangelism. Do infants who die prior to an age of accountability receive salvation, and are those who have never heard the Christian message simply doomed? What about loved ones who die without having embraced the Christian gospelor those who believe in less-traditional Christian dogmas and institutions? The Gift of God Is Eternal Life can help both believers and nonbelievers understand the implications of these theological perspectivesnot just in an afterlife, but in their own lives here and now.

This book is about the manifold wisdom of God and His intent for the creation of man. Was the eating of the fruit from the tree of good and evil to the advantage of man? Considering that all things come together for good for them that love God, how did this event help man against the devil's plan? These are the questions that will be addressed in this book. In order to align ourselves to the will of God and to fulfilling His purpose, we need to know why God created the earth, what His purpose was and His intention. Remember, Christ said "I have come to do thy will oh God", and "let thy will be done on earth at it is in heaven." In the same way, we need to do the will of God. Also, Jesus said if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, it is enough to do great things! (Luke 17:6, Matthew 17:20). Jesus in this scripture is simply saying if you assess a situation and you think that you only see 1% chance of success (as small as a grain of mustard seed), but you choose to believe that tiny 1% chance, ignoring the 99% odds that is against you succeeding, this is what faith is about. Elijah prayed for rain and the only evidence he saw was a small cloud but he concluded that God had answered his prayers. Then, there was a heavy outpouring of rain. The problem is we want to see a perfect or 99% chance of success before taking actions. We want to see the sky covered with great clouds before we believe that rain will fall. You must be convinced beyond any reasonable doubts that 1% chance of success is enough to deliver to you your desired success. Most often God wants to work with the 1% chance of success if you only believe. This is what God did through Gideon with 1% strength by reducing his army from 32, 000 to 300 men.

There is a unique story in each of us. Where that story begins, how it unfolds and how it will end are vital parts of our considerations. We are usually pretty clear about how it is currently unfolding but the other two ends of the spectrum are often clouded or confused by conflicting religious beliefs and mythology. The objective of this series, "Pleasure and Pain", is to shed some light on the process by which we grow in spirit. After almost 50 years of working as a psychologist, visiting over 36 countries and working with thousands of people who have told me their story, I can see some patterns to our spiritual growth. I can also see good reasons to put aside many religious teachings and more clearly focus on the nature of the human spirit. This means that instead of looking at "Original Sin" we need to focus on our "Original Blessings" and recognize that we are eternal beings. But the Gift of Eternal Life involves both pleasure and pain. For various reasons, some of us enjoy more of the first and suffer less of the second. For other people the reverse is true. In this book we identify some of the underlying reasons and explore some ways to make a positive difference.
