Insane busyness is continuing, and I am having trouble completing my next GIGO post. In the meantime, I keep coming up with other things I want to write about … when I have time.
Here is one of them.
Suppose I am called to witness to Joe. Suppose Joe is so open to the gospel at this point in his life that if I were to witness to him he’d be saved. And suppose I disobey God’s promptings and don’t witness to Joe.
Will God send someone else along to witness to Joe, so that he gets saved? Will He do something like that for sure? Or is it possible that because of my disobedience Joe will end up in hell, since I didn’t share the gospel with him?
I told my Sunday School class the other day that I think God would definitely send someone else along to share the gospel with Joe. Someone else in the class disagreed. Now I’ve been rethinking how best to justify my stand (or change it, but I don’t think I’m going to do that).
So what do y’all think, readers? I suppose if you’re Calvinist, it’s a no-brainer. So I’m more interested in what you’d say if you’re not completely Calvinist.
[Edit: I forgot to mention that my wife has also blogged about this question.]
