C.S. Lewis seems to suggest that those who sincerely pursue God the best way they know how are accepted by Him, regardless of whether or not they explicitly put their faith in Jesus. Is he right?
You may hear someone say, “I am a Christian. I believe that Jesus is my savior. He is the only way for me. But I can’t say He is the way for others.” Here’s why this confused confession fails.
The question “Do you take the Bible literally?” comes up with some frequency, and it deserves a response. But it’s an ambiguous question, making it awkward to answer. Here’s how to understand the challenge and respond well.
