An excerpt from this site:
"Christian Universalists believe that the correct interpretation of Christianity and the Bible is not the exclusive fundamentalist view ("convert or burn"), but an inclusive view of salvation in which all people -- even the sinful and unbelieving dead -- will eventually find reconciliation with God by repenting of their sins and going through a transformation process, so that nobody will spend eternity in hell. God's judgments work for the purpose of correction and reform; they are not the expression of vindictive rage.
This view is based on the New Testament declaration that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not accusing it for its sins, and that God sent His Son to save (heal and restore) the world, not to condemn it. The Bible teaches that Christ is the "Express Image" of the Heavenly Father in character. He conquered sin and death by laying down his life for us and rising from the dead, so sin and death cannot be permanent. In Christ's resurrection, the life of God has "swallowed up" death, according to St. Paul's writings. Hence, as God's cherished human offspring, our destiny is to become conformed to the image (that is, the character) of Christ, "the Second Adam," and be as he was and is -- the manifestation and fulfillment of our creation in the divine image, according to Genesis, from which we have only temporarily fallen away into sin. God has promised to transform and restore all people: "For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive." (1 Cor. 15:22)."
The scriptures that support universalism are fascinating. You owe it to yourself to read up on them. The most repulsive thing about the fundamentalist approach to scripture and God is the exclusive club it insists on building. Maybe equal to that is the use of fear as a motivate rather than God's perfect, unfailing love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
