We have saved the toughest question for last. If we say, as the Scriptures proclaim, that salvation is found only in Jesus the Messiah, our Jewish seeker will accuse us of condemning the Jewish millions not only to the ovens, but to eternal condemnation in hell. Many will ask, “Is this the act of a righteous God?”
We need not surrender the gospel message in an attempt to justify God. Jesus said,
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6). No one is able to know the destiny of another, nor the lengths to which God will go to reveal Himself in the final moments of an earthly life. The Scriptures also proclaim, “Salvation belongs to the Lord” (Psalm 3:8). We believe that only those who consciously trust in Jesus will be saved. We simply do not know what happens in the hearts of individuals prior to their death. Only God knows!
