By Jacob M. Wright:
“With the coming of the film from Madeleine l’Engle’s book, A Wrinkle in Time, it was cool to find out about her belief in the all-triumphant love of God. As noted on her Wikipedia page:
“L’Engle was an Episcopalian and believed in universal salvation, writing that ‘All will be redeemed in God’s fullness of time, all, not just the small portion of the population who have been given the grace to know and accept Christ. All the strayed and stolen sheep. All the little lost ones.’ As a result of her promotion of Christian universalism, many Christian bookstores refused to carry her books, which were also frequently banned from Christian schools and libraries. At the same time, some of her most secular critics attacked her work for being too religious.
Her views on divine punishment were similar to those of George MacDonald, who also had a large influence on her fictional work. She said ‘I cannot believe that God wants punishment to go on interminably any more than does a loving parent. The entire purpose of loving punishment is to teach, and it lasts only as long as is needed for the lesson. And the lesson is always love.’”.”
“Boycotted by freedom?
‘why be afraid if your belief is the truth? Let all beliefs be shared openly in freedom & let each decide whatever they want to believe and let God Judge all later; that’s true freedom and human rights’ – Anonymous
She was boycotted by fellow “Christians” For believing that “afterlife punishments are not eternal” But to the “age” as God decides and “as it is written” in the Original languages of the Bible.
Who is the “Christian”?
Perhaps both. It just goes to show ‘how Good God is to all, regardless as Mercy is never earned & has-been promised to “all” eventually in the final verdict of all Judgment in Romans 11:32’ by the Unchangeable Blessed Word of God.”
