In reading your Quetion & Answers section, I was so pleased to find your answer to the question, 'Was the thief on the cross saved?
('Hebrews 9:16-17 says, “Where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is in force after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives.”)
This is always the answer I give when asked this question, but most often I hear people say, 'Jesus is God. He can save whoever he chooses to save.' This answer does nothing to point people to the gospel.
Thank you for mining out this nugget of Truth.
