4. Living in the Light of the
Future
Universal Restoration and Practical Theology
GOSPEL CONVERSATIONS (July 2019)
FacingEvil
 UR does not ‘solve’ the problem of evil, but it allows us
to live with hope in the face of evil
 Rejection of UR amplifies the problem of evil
 UR motivates the fight against evil because it says that
resisting evil is never futile
FacingDeath
 UR and ministry with the grieving (hope for the hope-
less)
 UR and ministry with the dying
FacingtheLost
1
 UR sees every person as (a) created by God for theosis
(b) unwaveringly loved by God (c) a sinner in need of
salvation (d) someone for whom Christ died and rose
again (e) someone whom God has saved/is saving/will
save through Christ
 This affects how we see and engage people: nobody is
rejected by God (though our Adamic selves are rejected
by God)
FacingtheLost
2
 Does UR undermine evangelism?
 Is believing that God will save all people through the
gospel a reason not to proclaim the gospel?
 UR as a motivator of evangelism
 UR avoids the paralysis of making the salvation of the
lost our responsibility
FacingGod
 UR relieves us of the suspicion of darkness in God
 UR brings assurance before God: perfect love casts out
fear
 UR motivates the pursuit of holiness
 UR gives us hope for transformation in spite of the gap
between where we are and were we should be
 UR inspires love for God and worship of God
