Yea, that sucked
Christless, universalist, teaching is nothing more than heresy. At best it will do what Matt Chandler said so well, "inoculate them to the Gospel." The Bible is understood through the Gospel (Jesus), therefore if the Gospel (Christ) is taken out of Biblical teaching, then the teaching ceases to be Biblical and becomes a self-help, "come feel good about yourself 'cause you're naturally good." This kind of teaching is like Luther said while writing to Erasmus, "So mean and vile, that I greatly feel for for you for having defiled your most beautiful language with such vile trash."
