“I am a Universalist primarily because I believe in the sovereignty of God.
He made the worlds and all they contain. He made man, as all things else, for his pleasure. All that he has made he governs continually. He relaxes no part of his control. He cannot be disappointed in his work. He will not have to ‘try, try, try again.’ His government of all things is a perfect success. Those who make the divine government appear a miserable failure libel the Deity most dishonorably. Hence my trust in the divine goodness. ‘He cannot deceive nor be deceived;’ but he will do all his pleasure.
‘I make peace, and create evil, I the Lord do all these things.’
–Rev. Robert Blacker
