There's been buzz about the Netflix documentary Come Sunday over in Pop Culture but the subject would make for a good thread here. Short version: a popular church leader in the US got in hot water when he began supporting universal reconciliation (ie. universalism in the classical Christian sense) I haven't seen the documentary itself, but it is based on a story from the podcast/radio show This American Life and I heard the host of that show interviewed about the story on Homebrewed Christianity. Previous discussion about Come Sunday, including a review from @Waterfall, is here: Movies you'd like to see And here: Netflix The wiki on the original story is here: Carlton Pearson - Wikipedia So, a modern day heresy trial and excommunication in a Protestant denomination. What do you think? Is universalism a "heresy" that must be suppressed or just an alternative interpretation of the Gospel? What does "heresy" really mean in a modern church? Should we allow discussion and debate of conflicting ideas or pick a winner and dismiss the rest as "heresy"? Should a minister or member of any church be subject to discipline for their theology or changes in their theology? And, yes, the Vosper case has elements of this in it so it is on topic here, I guess. But lets not make it the focus if we can manage that.
