Yes, yes, yes. Everyone will have the opportunity to accept or to reject Christ. Now, if someone rejects Him while they are alive and have the opportunity to accept, I can't say there will be a "last call" after death. I wouldn't bet my eternity on it, but I don't know. I do know that He loves us more than we could imagine, so I hope the rejection people choose in this life is because they can't truly understand, and that He might reveal Himself in a way that human words never could, so that they could then believe and accept.<quoted text>Very nice:):)
I must ask you, what of those people who have never even heard of the name Jesus? Will they be offered a place along with you?
I have grieved for my dad, because he was a hard, often cruel man. However, in his own way, he loved us deeply. I kind of think his cruelty and ignorance were
revealed to him at his death. At that point, when he finally understood, I don't doubt that his heart broke when he realized the depth of pain he caused. My hope is that I will see him in heaven, because I know he would have repented if he had only understood.
Thank you for responding. There is so much in this world that is still wonderful.
