J. Grant Swank, Jr.

NazNet Site Coordinator Hans Deventer wobbles again.

The question is asked on NazNet as to who believes in universalism.


Universalism believes in no hell. All souls go to heaven.

The Bible over and over again states that there is an eternal hell and an eternal heaven. Those who follow Christ go to heaven. Those who do not, go to hell.

Can the Bible get clearer than that?

Obviously the Bible is offbeat for Deventer. He states in reply to the lead question: “Are you a universalist at heart?

“’I'm a Nazarene, I do not believe in universalism, but I hope God does.’”


That is typical sappy Deventer and others on NazNet. Instead of forthrightly endorsing the Bible, they wobble, they waffle. They must think that is cute. It is not cute. It is blasphemous to counter the Word of God with one’s willy-nilly statements.

Again, NazNet claims to be a friend of the evangelical, holiness Church of the Nazarene. No way does that church support universalism or wobbly sweet nothings as Deventer prints on the site.

NazNet cannot be trusted. It is not biblically solid.

Deventer also believes that unsaved souls are annihilated at death; they suffer no eternal hell.

He believes in infant baptism and wishes that the
Church of the Nazarene practiced it far and wide.

He does not believe in the Bible as the infallible Word of God. In other words, he and NazNet founder Dave McClung believe that the Bible has errors in it.

NazNet is no friend of God, the Bible or the Church of the Nazaerne.
