This week chapter 2 of The Jesus Code: 52 Scripture Questions Every Believer Should Answer, by O.S. Hawkins.
For those of you just tuning in, The Jesus Code has 52 questions, one to contemplate each week. The author believes every believer should be able to answer these important questions.
The first chapter and question was, “Has God Indeed Said …?” from Genesis 3.1.
This week’s question: “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Genesis 18.25).
In my decades of Christian service, far and away the most often asked question has been something like this: “What about the person who has never even heard the name of Jesus? God will let them into heaven , won’t He?” This is usually accompanied by such follow-up questions as, “What about those devout and sincerely religious persons of other faiths who spend a lifetime in service and worship?” and “What about our Jewish friends? Are they the ‘other sheep’ Jesus referred to as His own who are ‘not of this fold’ (John 10: 16)?”*
He goes on to explain the three theological perspectives on this question (inclusivism, pluralism and exclusivism) and why only one is true according to the Scriptures.
I hope you’ll get a copy of The Jesus Code and follow along with these 52 vital questions. The chapters are short and can easily be read in one sitting. If you do, I’d love your feedback. Click here to get the book or here for Kindle.
Next week’s question is, “How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” (Genesis 39.9).
