The Journey Begins (Continues)

As a lifelong Pentecostal Christian, I am going way out on a limb here. At the ripe old age of 43, I discovered something called Universalism, or Universal Salvation or Universal Reconciliation that just blew me away. I have been researching it, praying about it and meditating on it for almost a year now.
I don't have all of the answers. But, I am fully convinced of one thing. A loving God (and God IS love) would not condemn the majority of His creation to eternal torment for not believing a particular doctrine. Period. Full stop. That haunted me for my entire Christian life and almost drove me away from Christianity until some amazing things began to be revealed to me as I researched this doctrine of hell.
I am not a professional theologian (I sell computers for a living). So, don't take anything I say as "gospel". Get the facts for yourself. Look things up. I'll give as many references as I can. So, if you want to join me on the journey, welcome.
