Greetings! I'm Dondi.
Until presently, I've been a modified evangelical. I am currently a member of a fundamental, independent KJV Baptist church. But about 5 years ago, I been thinking critically about this business of Hell and could simply not fathom that the majority of the billions of people who are living or who have lived are consigned to a never-ending hell, according to the doctrine of my church. If that is the case, then God has a very poor track record in the salvation business. I mentioned that I'm a modified evangelist because I'm willing to conceed that a vast more people are saved than I realize. And the text that has opened my eyes to that effect is Acts 17:23-28, in the Apostle Pauls famous Mars Hill speech:
For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
I draw attention to the bold type. If God places everyone in their own place, then surely He must provide a means for them to seek Him. In fact, this passage explicitly tells us that that is the very reason for setting us in the bounds of our habitation. Inductively, this had led me to believe that even for those who have never heard of Christ, the provision of the Blood He shed for us must invariably be available for them. C.S. Lewis mentions the term 'anonymous Christians' as those who have demonstrated Christ-like quailities in thier live that evidences the fruit of a believer, even though they are not connected in Name.
Very recently, I've been hit hard on the idea of UR. This is a doctrine that I have resisted for obvious reasons, but I am taking a very serious look at it with a heartening hope. I hope to gain knowledge here in my quest for the Truth of what may be a very extraordinary change of position and one I'm delighted to be open to, but cautious about.
