Universalism or Universal Salvation

The non-Scriptural concept that everyone will go to heaven in the end merely because Jesus died for everyone is gaining popularity in our truth-hating religious world. While there are hundreds of valid arguments which disprove Universalism, the one in Jude is frighteningly clear:

In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (Jude 7)

The Holy Spirit through Jude made it explicitly clear that the very people upon whom God rained down burning sulfur in Genesis didn’t go to a place of comfort, like Abraham was in (Luke 16:25), but instead went to a place of eternal fire.

Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the LORD out of the heavens. (Gen 19:24)

Eternal fire beyond the grave is not just for the homosexuals who were destroyed by God back then, because these are just an example of people who will go there in the end! Who else might be there? Scripture is dogmatic:

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Cor. 6:9,10, NASB)

If you are in that listing, repent of your sins and prove your repentance by your deeds (Acts 20:21; 26:20; etc.). Sincerely and humbly turn to Jesus for mercy and forgiveness (1 Cor. 6:11; John 14:6; etc.). Eternity is a long time and this side of the grave is the only chance you will have to be of the few (the minority) to enter through the narrow gate to life (Mt. 7:13,14).
