I hope I can state my question so that it will make some sense. Recently, I was speaking with a lay person about who is "saved". He presented it in a way I have never thought about before and would like some input. Is NOT REJECTING Jesus the same as ACCEPTING him? Some instances: People who have never heard the name Jesus but know in their hearts that there is a Creator. Is that enough to get them to heaven? What about children who are too young to comprehend the concept of who Jesus us? Isn't the first group the same in principle as the second? Does God hold accountable those who have never heard about salvation in Jesus Christ?
