A co-worker told me a story today about his recent trip back to France. He was sitting next to an evangelical Christian on the plane, who proceeded to explain that in order to go to Heaven one must accept Jesus Christ as his savior.
So my co-worker posed some hypotheticals.
“Suppose I am a devout Muslim who worships peacefully?”
“What about someone who has grown up deep in the Amazon and has had no exposure to Jesus Christ?”
“What about … ?”
“And suppose … ?”
And there you have it. One interpretation of Jesus’ message.
