A Heretic?

Is there such a thing as a "Christian universalist"? I just read a blog of someone who considers themselves that.

My first reaction, the gut one, the one I hesitated to think or say out loud: "You, my dear blogger, are a heretic."

God does want to save as many as possible. But He will not paint over disrespect or indifference. Not everyone will be saved, if not for the simple reason that not everyone asked to be saved or wants to be saved.

I would flee a church that did not preach that belief in Christ was essential to salvation both in this life (the infilling of the Holy Spirit, etc) and the next life (eternity with God).
