6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By W. W. Anderson on April 8, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book considers, from the perspective of Christianity,
the salvation of souls who are religious, but whose religions are
not Christian. Are these people damned, because of the accident
of birth, geography, or other condition, rendering them shut off
from the saving grace of Jesus Christ? Or are they, somehow,
saved because of a genuine, though misguided, faith in whatever
their religions happen to be?
The world contains many more of God's creatures adhering to
other religions than there are Christians. How, then, can we
reconcile the Cross of Christ as the source of all grace with the
love of God who loves all creatures with an equal and unlimited
love?
One way is to agree that other religions are conditionally
true so far as they do not contradict the Christian message on
decisive points.
Another is to recognize that there are grace-filled elements
in other religions that lead the people to act like Christians,
worshipping the divine and loving their neighbors. Such persons
manifest the direct influence of the Spirit of Christ, and can be
reckoned as true Christians, even though they don't know it.
But is it not presumptuous to suppose that the only ways to
accommodate people of other religions are to impose conditions or
include them in ours as anonymous Christians? The will of those
who are, after all, not Christians, and do not want to be
Christians, is not respected. Although Christ taught us humility,
we have approached them with arrogance.
