Hello all Ok, so I have been theorising John 14:6 and would really appreciate your input and thoughts. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" Facts: - God is just and no respector of persons. - Jesus died for all mankind. - Nobody comes to God the Father except through Jesus. - The Holy Spirit revealed Jesus's true identity to Peter. Concluding statements of fact: - Nobody will reach judgement day without having had an equal and fair opportunity to accept or reject Jesus. - Just as Peter was revealed the truth by The Holy Spirit, likewise all humans will have this moment in time where there spirit will be ready to see Jesus for who He is and what He stands for and then accept or reject Him (equal conditions for all). - No matter what you believe (islam, hindu, atheist), your ''equal and fair opportunity'' to accept or reject Jesus is coming. If anything being a faithful God-fearing person will improve your desire to accept Jesus on that day. - Cannibals that died on remote islands and never heard the gospel will too receive their ''equal and fair opportunity'' oneday to accept or reject Jesus. - You cannot go to hell unless you have rejected Jesus and you cannot reject Jesus unless you have had an equal and fair opportunity to accept Him. - The timing of this fair opportunity is irrelevant, it can be on earth, spiritual waiting place or enroute to a waiting place, whats relevant is that God will be blameless on judgement day as you would have been treated eqauly and fairly just as everyone else. - No human can truly convert somoene, as only The Holy Spirit / or God can sow the seed of Jesus. Christians can only toil the soil. - Babies / retards will also have their equal and fair opportunity, for all mankind is guilty of sin (Perhaps in the millenium of peace?). An equal and fair opportunity to accept or reject Jesus entails : - You are mentally fit to make the decision - You are spiritually aware of the full impact of your decision - The Holy Spirit / God sows the seed of Jesus in the moment. (ie, you have a deep spiritual encounter with Jesus, aka God, as Jesus is God in the flesh) Common explanations are that God's creation testifies of Him and you will be judged on the light you have received. John 14:6 clearly says Jesus and not ''light you have received'' or wind blowing pretty little leaves. The Holy Spirit would have to testify before God of ALL mankind, that have accepted or rejected Jesus.
