Ive been told by Christians that the only way to heven is to believe and accept Jesus. In addition, if one acceptys this regardless of sins committed, they will be saved.
So, here is my question: Jeffery Dalmher accepted Christ while in prison, so he is saved, He was murdered by a fellow inmate and because he was saved by the Lord Jesus, he is now in heaven. OK,
Now, lets look at Gandhi, a very Christ like and spiritual person that no doubt was one of the Earths best people who ever lived. He was shot and killed, but, due to his religios believes, he is now in Hell.
Somethig. s wrong with this concept. I am unalbel to accept most of the bible due to this very preplexing question.
Please help me understand this concept.

Bible Answer: Good Evening Doubtful (Don D Show),
Your post expresses a lot of frustration. I'm hoping I can steer you to an article that can really clear things up for you. It's a long article written by a Christian writer by the name of Miles Stanford. So I'm asking you to go to withchrist.org. On the home page in the right hand corner there is a link entitled "The New Birth Explained".
I'd like to just copy it and paste it in this post, but space on the Forum is limited. However, there is space enough to list the contents:
The First Adam
The Last Adam
Liberty and Life
The Lord Jesus Christ
The Principle of Grace
Acceptance With God
Assurance of Salvation
If you will read this article all the way through I think you'll begin to understand what a saved person is and why. In addition, you'll see the difference between works (Gahndi) and grace (Christian).
As a sample, I'd like to include with this post 2 paragraphs from the article. Immediately following these paragraphs the writer begins to differentiate the differences between a child of God and a natural man.
I hope you'll follow up. If you do, please respond with your thoughts. Thanks.
