Reflections Along the Jesus Way

September 5, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“How do we know that all those who seem to have died without Christ have done so?  Perhaps some of many of them have – but simply because a representative from our denomination did not reach some people group in Africa, India or China does not mean these people are doomed.  This topic has been, and is being, used as a leverage and motivation for Christians to support missionaries.  Of course we should tell others about the kingdom of God.  But nowhere in the Bible does God tell us that the salvation of others hinges on our efforts.  This is not to minimize our efforts, it’s simply to place what we do and what God will and can do in proper perspective.  God has other ways of saving people than our human efforts.”
