Impartial Grace: 1 Corinthians 11

But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern the Lord’s body.

(1 Corinthians 11:3, 28-29, emphasis added)

The salient point to be taken in this is that the “…head of every man is Christ….” Scripture does not segregate Jews from Samaritans, Assyrians from Babylonians, the Catholic Church from the Reformed church. Scripture simply says “the head of every man is Christ….” The chapter closes with an admonition to make sure all conflicts are resolved before taking communion. Examine yourself. Repent. When the examination is done and all personal and internal conflicts are resolved, take the bread and take the wine. Christ is the head of every man.

Universal reconciliation declares all persons will be reconciled to Him even though some people continue their rebellion up to death. The doctrine teaches His death on the Cross is sufficient for all men. Other doctrines of this ilk are judgments of men. Opposing doctrines give Divine authority, ostensibly by the Word God, to eternally torment those who continue in their rebellion against Him. It is prominent traditionalist theology that claims that those not believing as the traditionalist does are destined to eternal conscious torment. Orthodoxy consigns the unrepentant rebel to unending and increasingly painful tortures in a place set aside especially for them by God. It is a judgment of men by men. We should all take care not to bring judgment on ourselves by judging others.
