I was listening to my history teacher the other day, and my mind wandered. Then I thought up an excellent question: If one lived in the 11th century Roman Catholic church, and since it was so corrupt with its excommunication, buying and selling of indulgences and salvation, etc., how was one to come about the true story of salvation? Then I came up with a theory:
1. Since God is a just God, he gave (and still gives) everyone a chance to accept the correct form of salvation, whether it was the popular choice (or legal) or not. i.e. Martin Luther, John Wycliffe...
2. Since God is a fair God, today he gives and will give a chance to all of the world's population regardless of their nationality. i.e. Underground Churches in China, Missionaries in India, etc.
3. I believe it will stay this way until the end of time, when it will be harder to be a public Christ Follower than ever. i.e. The Mark of the Beast, public and private persecution, illegalization of Christ, etc.
What do you all think? Do you think its true? Or is it my imagination?
