Question : You have no right to suggest that someone could come to God
through the Holy Spirit without having first believed in Jesus.
Answer by Robert Brow (www.brow.on.ca)
I certainly believe that no one, but no one, can be taken through death
and perfected for heaven except through Jesus the Messiah. But the Bible
does not say you have to understand how he does it (e.g. hear and understand
some doctrine of the atonement). Those who believe that no one can make
it unless they get to hear and understand the good news have to exclude
all the OT saints and all retarded persons and all babies who die in infancy.
Where does it say that babies can be saved by some other means? Why
shouldn't babies be resurrected by the Holy Spirit as Jesus was (Romans
8:11)? But they will be in heaven through Jesus' work and him alone
without having heard and made a decision.
