List of Trinitarian Universalists

According to Trinitarian Universalists, the Bible itself (both Old and New Testaments) advocate the universal reconciliation of humanity to God. As a result, the Hebrew Prophets who prophesied of the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ (John 12:32), The Apostle Paul (1 Tim. 4:9-11; especially since he never used the word "Hell", although he does mention burning and escaping fire in 1 Corinthians 3:14-16, and Jesus is quoted many times referencing hell, such as Matt. 10:28) and The Apostle John (John 4:42) would be considered universalists. Other universalists, universalist sympathizers (meaning those open to universalism, though not necessarily dogmatic; noted below) and universalist schools throughout history are listed here alphabetically. (See Trinitarian Universalism for the differences between this view and Unitarian Universalism.
