Q&A with Pastor Durrell
(a progressive, non-binding catechism)
The following questions were asked of and answered by Dr. Durrell Watkins
in Sunshine Cathedral’s newsletter, The Sun Burst or in email correspondence. This can also be found in Dr. Watkins’ book, A Different Kind of Church
Am I “Saved”?
Question: My mother is a fundamentalist Christian. She’s afraid I’m not saved. How can I persuade her that I am?
Answer:Unless someone had told you that you weren’t “saved,” you probably would have never considered that you weren’t safe in the Universe. Most creatures seem to trust that their lives are good enough. And even in Christianity (and I would argue, within our scriptures), there are strong traditions of Universalism – the belief that no soul is ultimately beyond the reach of God’s love.
