Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

What is the eternal destiny of those who never hear the gospel? (3 Recommended Resources)

Recently, I have offered some articles on this blog that highlight the errors of the kind of inclusivism advocated by Rob Bell [see "Inclusivism"= The Death of Missions and Inclusivism Based on Anti-Biblical Assumptions].

The following are three of the best resources I've encountered regarding the issue of inclusivism, specifically in regard to the perennial question, "What is the destiny of those who never hear the gospel?"

What About Those Who Haven't Heard? is an interview of Christopher Morgan (the co-editor of Hell Under Fire) by Collin Hansen; this is mostly a survey of Historical Theology regarding the destiny of those who never hear the gospel.

Who Can Be Saved? A Review Article is a scholarly treatment of this question by Dr. Jim Hamilton of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; Hamilton is specifically responding to the inclusivism of Terrance Tiessen.

The Man on the Island by Dr. Russell Moore is the best treatment of this subject I've encountered, as Moore examines the destiny of those who never hear the gospel with his characteristic, gospel-centered balance of scholarly precision and pastoral wisdom; this article is always in the side-bar of this blog under "Articles of Importance."
