The doctrine of inclusion teaches that humanity was “included” in Christ’s death and resurrection. Humanity ascended with Christ and is now seated with him in heavenly places. Those who teach inclusionism adopt the language of grace, but their message is a perversion of the gospel. Inclusionism presents a horrifying image of our heavenly Father and has no basis in scripture.

Below are links to some of the articles and study notes I have written on this subject.

A question I am often asked is whether inclusionism is universalism. It is not. One looks back (historical reconciliation); the other looks forward (ultimate reconciliation). Many inclusionists are also universalists but some are not:


I have seen the inclusionist message shipwreck the faith of many. It has ended ministries and sunk churches. I strongly recommend you have nothing to do with it.

  1. Thanks my brother from NZ. I’m glad you’re sounding the alarm graciously that this error is not only contrary to Scripture it’s also dangerous and leads to destruction in many areas of life.

    Bro. Paul i want to know about ‘Election’ and ‘Predestination’. Is this doctrine acceptable for Grace preachers? Is this doctrine relevant to the message of Grace? Whether yes or no,please enlighten me with your writing, i’m so confused!

    • Predestination, as spoken of by Paul in Ephesians 1:11-13, simply means God planned to reveal the gospel to the Gentiles. It does not mean that God chooses some and rejects others. The grace of God has appeared to all people, not some; it is meant to bring great joy to all people, not some. The Lamb of God carried the sins of the whole world.

      Predestined means predetermined. The word is proorizō which is made up of two words: pro, meaning fore, and horizo, meaning horizon or boundary. The God who sees the end from the beginning knows exactly how many seats would be needed at his table and how big his banqueting hall needed to be.

    yes, God CHOOSES His Elect (saved) from the foundation of the Earth Eph 1:4-5, Romans 8:29-30,
    Romans 9:11-24 explains the fairness of it… ya see, Hell is NOT eternal torment… as the wages of sin is DEATH…

    Romans 3:10-11 tells you man doesn’t have any ability to choose Him…

    Romans 9:16 tells you FREE WILL is non existent… as does also John 1:13 …

    John 15:16 tells you the truth also…

    as does the entire Word of God quite frankly…

    GRACE is Ephesians 2:8-10 … funny how all the pulpits leave off verse 10 … ORDAINED unto “it” (grace) …

    Grace is a FREE GIFT that you’re chosen… period…

    not some allowance for not repenting…

    Matthew 15:24 Jesus tells you He only came for the Lost Sheep if Israel… that’s HIS CHURCH…

    Israel = Church…

    Jews = Church… we’re grafted in Jews.. we’re Grafted in Israel… not the FAKE Israel over in the land… that’s the Jews of Rev 2:9 & 3:9 …
