Is God that cold and callous?

There is one belief among many mainstream Christian churches that is impossible for me to accept. That belief is that someone has to accept Jesus Christ in this life in order to be saved. The manner in which someone accepts Christ is contested among the many denominations but I think it is safe to say whatever that manner is, it must be done in mortality.

To the average Christian this appears to make sense. But I find it difficult to believe that God, being the Father of all of humanity, would consign 90% of his children to Hell because they never had the opportunity to hear or accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Is God that cold and callous?

Maybe we should turn the tables and put the condemnation of those who have not had the opportunity to hear the gospel on the heads of those that have it, and have failed to get the message out to all Father's children. To me, that seems much more appropriate.

As we become aware of the world around us, I see this limiting belief being dissolved. I am sure that the protestant faiths will come up with an explanation that will offer Christ's salvation to more. I am surprised this hasn't happened yet.

But how lucky I am to have gospel truths NOW that enable me to see my brothers and sisters, who live their lives the best they can with the light and knowledge they have, with compassion and hope that we will see one another in Heaven.

Dear Friends ,,,, on an unrelated topic that requires our attention....
Recently a friend in our fold brought this "film" to my attention.
Her son apparently was sent this web link from someone.
this is NOT a joke,,,, I've been told that some people
question my intentions.
It's a movie clip (that has been recently released, or is about to,,, I'm not sure),,
anyway, it depicts Mormons as flesh eating ghouls, and it is just awful. www.thebookofzombie.com
PLEASE don't go to this web site,,, please just make note of it,,,,,

On behalf of myself and my husband, and our Mormon friends,
I would like to make sure that young people are NOT subjected to this terrible conception of true faith.

please let me know if you are able to help.

regards, Betty Toms

Well said!!!! You really know how to put into words this unnatural reasoning that the one time born again experience overrides how we have lived our lives in service to our fellow man and to the Savior.
