Episode 53 - Christian Universalism with Chaplain Aaron Saufley

What if God saves everyone? Christian Universalism (the idea that God will save everyone and the earth somehow in the end) is one theory of atonement that theologians have discussed for centuries. Though the idea of universal reconciliation was the most prominent atonement theory among early Christ followers, after around the 4th century multiple atonement theories began to surface. Penal substitutionary atonement theory (the idea that humans are objects of God's wrath and destined to eternal torment in hell unless making a personal decision to believe that Jesus' death on the cross paid the sin debt humans owe to God) holds the space as the most prevalent theory among Christian evangelicals today.

In this episode, we dive into this topic with Aaron Saufley, local hospice chaplain and Cedarbridge partner who shares his wisdom and love of learning of all things, especially Christian Universalism. So whether you like to geek out like we do about topics like this or you are just hearing conversations like this one for the first time, we invite you to learn and laugh with us!
