Another post for "Presidents' Weekend" but this one is from the President of Fuller Theological Seminary Richard Mouw, musing on whether Gandhi was saved and responding to a Baptist who is "damn sure" that he wasn't (pardon the expression, but pun definitely intended).
I am no universalist. I believe that refusing to put your faith in Jesus is something that imperils your soul for all eternity. There is no salvation apart from Christ. But how Jesus gets ahold of people and how he brings them into his heavenly Kingdom is surrounded–for me at least–by a lot of mystery. I’m glad the verdict on who is in and who is out is not up to me, but to the Spirit who is described by the Westminster Confession as the One who “who worketh when and where, and how he pleaseth.”
