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.
