Before diving into these teachings, ask yourself this, “Am I willing to let go of my beliefs, if I find that the Bible says something different?” If no, proceed no further. If yes, you’re going to love Reform U.
God being sovereign just means that God is in full authority, but the notion that God controls everything is completely wrong. God’s will is done perfectly in heaven, but NOT on earth. If we want God’s will to come to pass on earth, that is dependent on our understanding of Jesus.
We are not becoming more like Jesus as believers. We are as much like Jesus NOW as we will ever be. We can only grow in our knowledge, and manifest, how much like Jesus we already are, through the cross!
God’s love is not demonstrated in physical things like family, friends, or creation itself. God’s love was demonstrated one time, and one time only. And that was when Jesus provided the fullness of His Spirit to us at the cross.
The judgment of the world has already occurred at the cross. There is no more wrath from God against people’s sins forever. Last Day Judgment is the judgment of the Devil and his angels’, which unbelievers will inherit apart from Jesus.
Eternal life has nothing to do with an afterlife and it is not something reserved for heaven some time in the future. Eternal life is power that Jesus puts IN a person when they believe. And as they grow in knowledge, this life can be given to their physical, mortal bodies.
