I feel that Selwyn is quite blunt (but necessarily so) when he says: ‘Let it be absolutely clear: there is no true and real knowledge of God except in and through the Person of His Son, Jesus Christ.’
The following excerps from John 10:7-11, “Jesus said again, ‘I am telling you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep … Whoever comes in by me will be saved … I am the good shepherd, who is willing to die for the sheep.'”, clearly Jesus is saying that you can be certain that you will be saved if you develop a relationship with God through Him.
I have no firm view about those who have never heard of Jesus except that I believe that whatever their fate – God treats them justly with mercy and compassion.
On the other hand, those who have heard about Jesus and never make the effort to develop a relationship based on love, these people are eternally lost – they don’t have the one and only shepherdÂ who canÂ find and protect them – what do you think?
