You won’t find a definition in the dictionary for Red Letter Christ-centric Universalism, so I will utilize this post to unpack what I mean by it.
Red Letter = A lot of Bibles record what’s attributed to what Jesus said by writing it out in red letters. Subsequently, I try to conduct my life based on what’s attributed to what Jesus said and did, thus red letter.
Christ-centric = As I stated above, I try to conduct my life around what is attributed to what Jesus said and did. Christianity and following Christ has been very much a part of my life in its entirety. I am Christ-centric because of my roots and what works within the framework I have and what I’ve been given. Had I been born in a Buddhist culture and tradition, I would be Buddha-centric, Had I been born in a Muslim culture and tradition, I would be Koran-centric, and so on and so forth.
I am not the only one operating out of centrism to one’s beliefs past or present, and both realities meet within my Christ-centric views and faith system.
Universalism = I believe that everyone will be reunited and reconnected with God, themselves, and others some eon on the other side of eternity. I don’t believe in an exclusive god, a god that only a select/elite few will ever commune with, a god that damns a portion of humanity to hell. This universalism is inclusive, it is for people of all belief systems and Atheists and Agnostics too!
What this all looks like is something I will unpack in an upcoming post, so stay tuned! 🙂
