4.0 out of 5 stars The Misunderstood God by Darin Hufford, November 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Misunderstood God: The Lies Religion Tells About God (Paperback)
"The Misunderstood God," by Darin Hufford is an outstanding book on the love of God. This author, according to the excellent examples he used, sounds like he grew up, as millions of people have, in legalistic, fundamentalistic Christian Churches. He masterfully used I Cor. 13, "the love chapter," in applying this same love to God. Does God command this high standard of love for mankind to do, but God exempts Himself? If so, that would make God the biggest hypocrite in the universe. Hufford makes the point that God does not command one thing for us and have a different standard for Himself. This is Hufford's insightfully-brilliant conclusion: "He will never fail you, never fall short, never fall out of love, because He's made of love, the very source of all....Love is why there's no place, no person, and no created things that can be separate from Him. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, all-wonderful."

What else could a person of normal intellect and common sense conclude from the above statement but that Hufford must believe in Christian Universalism since he is writing from the Christian perspective? I would have thought so except that I read this statement in the preceding chapter: "There is no question in my mind that in the end there will be millions who thought they knew Him, but didn't, and trillions who were convinced they didn't know Him, but did." So the good news is that trillions will be saved, but the bad news is that millions will be forever lost. At least Hufford believes that the vast majority of humans will be saved. Most Christians believe that relatively few will be saved and the vast majority will be condemned to hell for eternity by God whose love is unconditional, whose patience is infinite, and whose justice is perfect! Anyone being tortured forever never makes sense to any thinking person, and it can't make sense to God either because it is an inherent contradiction--an oxymoron! It is also spiritually terroristic. This is why I rated this book four rather than five stars.
