...Evangelist Jerry Falwell is denying reports that he believes Jews can get to heaven without accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. The Jerusalem Post reported this week that Falwell had decided that God has given Jewish people an exemption when it comes to requiring faith in Christ in order to enter heaven.
Who cares what Jerry Falwell says, ever? Beyond that, one grave problem with Falwell's position is timing. When, EXACTLY, did one have to accept Jesus Christ in order to win the kingdom of heaven? Was it at the moment of crucifixion? At the moment of resurrection? When the gospels were first published, a couple hundred years later?
Wouldn't it be teh suck to be a pious, believing Jew, faithful your whole life, then you get sent to hell because Jesus changed the rules and nobody told you about it?
The only thing worse would be to be an aborted fetus who has to go to hell because you were never baptized.
