We have had some interesting discussions surrounding Calvinism. In the course of those discussions I have tried to point out that the criticism that Calvinism excludes the non-elect from the possibility of salvation is unfair. It is true that Calvinism teaches that Christ only died for the elect, however, freewill theology suffers from the same problem that Calvinism does: not everyone has an opportunity to receive the gospel. The basic idea in freewill theology is that Christ died for everyone and everyone has an opportunity to believe the gospel. When I have faced this argument in the past I have brought up the fact that not every has an opportunity to believe the gospel because there have been billions of people on the face of this earth who have not had a chance to receive Christ. Today I watched a report on the nation of China and the work of missionaries in that country. The report stated that China has 300 million children under the age of 15. My question for the board is simple: If those 300 million children do not hear the gospel will they die and go to hell based on what the Bible teaches? In other words do you believe it is possible to go to heaven without having faith in Christ?
