What Christian denoms believe (or can believe) in univeral salvation?

Otherwise called universal reconciliation...That is: "the Christian doctrine or belief that all can receive salvation, regardless of belief, due to the love and mercy of God."

Not asking about the validity of this belief, but about what denominations may allow/encourage this view.

  • I agree, anon, and that line of thought is actually what got me into Universalism in the first place, although now I don't believe in the blood atonement.... I did used to say, though, that Jesus' blood was shed for all, and not a drop was wasted, which I would still strongly believe if I still believed that anyone can pay for anyone elses' sins (or needed to).

  • I am not affiliated with any denomination, but this is part of my own personal belief.

    It is also the basis of Christian Universalism, from what I understand.

  • Catholics don't quite take it as far as your definition. The Catholic Church teaches that:


    Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience - those too may achieve eternal salvation.
