  1. We were discussing in shul whether a person who has never heard the gospel in this life can believe after he dies. I am not sure, but I know God is just. “Rom 8:29 Those whom God had already chosen he also set apart to become like his Son, so that the Son would be the first among many believers. Rom 8:30 And so those whom God set apart, he called; and those he called, he put right with himself, and he shared his glory with them.” God knows who would and who would not believe. If a person dies never having heard the Word, and they were chosen and set apart by God, might they not be given an opportunity to become like Jesus in the next life?

    1. Amen! We must be careful to add to the Word, but we must also be very careful to interpret it in a way that reflects the dignity, justice, and omniscience of YHWH. Glad you are digging here and not just believing what you hear! Thanks for the comment, and keep ’em coming if you have any further insight. Bless you.
