A part of Unitarian Universalism
{n} the belief that all men will be saved
Belief in the salvation of all souls. Arising as early as the time of Origen and at various points in Christian history, the concept became an organized movement in North America in the mid-18th century. It maintains the impossibility that a loving God would bestow salvation on only a portion of humankind while dooming the rest to eternal punishment. It stresses the use of reason in religion and the modification of belief in light of the discoveries of science. Thus, the miraculous elements of traditional Christianity are rejected, and Jesus, while a worthy teacher and model, is not held to be divine. Universalist and Unitarian churches in the U.S. merged in 1961 (see Unitarianism)
The doctrine or belief that all men will be saved, or made happy, in the future state
A holistic or collectivist concept that considers a society as an acting entity with its own will and ends which are independent and separate from those of its individual members The ends of the group are determined by a superhuman power and revealed through a leader whose authority and statements of "truth" can never be questioned by reason or faithful believers Holding that families and communities direct the development of individuals, rather than vice versa, universalists consider social aggregates, such as nations, as an articulated whole to which the functions of individuals must be subordinated Society's desired ends are realized solely by compelling individuals to function as prescribed by the political community A modern proponent of universalism was Othmar Spann (1878-1950) whose ideas formed the basis for much of Nazism EP 43, 47-48, 153, 209-10; HA 44-45,145-53
