Hello Shri Devi,

Please allow me to interject on this conversation.

Those who actually physically crucified Christ are not saved on the basis of doing so. Only faith alone, in who and what Christ is, and was, saves.

Acts 16:31 says, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved."

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, paid the price of sin; he was judged for the sins of the world (John 3:16). When a person believes that, he accepts the free gift of God, eternal life through belief on His Son and what His Son did for them. Not through works of their own.

Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "For by grace are you saved, through faith; and that salvation is not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, and not of works, lest any man should boast."

Romans 6:23 says, For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through belief in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, paid the price for our sins by sacrificing Himself on the Cross. All the sins of the world were imputed to Him. All that's left for us to do is accept that; it is a free gift of God. There is nothing we can do to "earn" our way. All the work was done by Christ on the Cross.

Romans 3:10; Romans 5:12; Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:23; Galations 3:26; John 10:28; Romans 8:38-39; John 3:3; John 5:24; John 11:25; Romans 8:1-2; John 14:6; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1st Timothy 2:5-6 -all these verses in he Bible have to do with God's grace (who and what He is, not who and what we are) and His provision, His fantastic gift, His Son.

Regarding the deaf and blind, and those who are mentally incapable, God in His Perfect Righteousness automatically accepts them into His Presence when they depart this life. Volition (freedom of choice) is the key. God in His omniscience knows when a human is not capable of making a decision for or against God. The human in question is therefore not held responsible. All children who die as a result of famine, disease and other atrocity are automatically accepted into Heaven because they never had the opportunity to exercise their choice for or against God and His provision, His Son.

Again, please accept my intrusion, but as I have studied the Greek and Hebrew of the Bible for over thirty years, I have great reverence for our Lord and cannot resist the priviledge of repeating the Good News of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Respectfully, Jennifer Solis

John 14:6 - Christ said - "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me."
