You read a synopsis about Bell that was false and slanderous. I think good missionaries will speak clearly about the Gospel and the eternal destiny through Jesus but will not place themselves in the judgment seat of God and assume they know the eternal destinies of specific individuals after they have died. 1 Corinthians 4 says “Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.”
There is a clear difference between naming and challenging people’s sinfulness and rejection of Christ (which I support) and pretending you know the way the Holy Spirit will work in a person’s heart at the time of their passing. I believe there is always the possibility that some will accept the grace of Christ on their deathbed without anyone around them knowing it. For be it from me to claim I know that Gandhi is in hell when that possibility also exists for him. And that is exactly the point Bell was responding to. He was responding to someone who very definitively declared that Gandhi was in hell.
It can also go the other way. There are rumors that Leo Tolstoy rejected Christianity and embraced Islam on his deathbed. Again, I will not declare his eternal destiny, I will wait until the Lord comes and exposes the motives of the heart.
If memory serves me correctly, you were the one who were slandering Calvin and Piper. I merely stated that if Bell says there is no hell and certainly no torment, then perhaps he should stop working on his poetry for a while and devote himself to the scriptures. He's a false teacher who doesn't have any scriptural backing in making his assertions.
As far as the eternal destiny of Gandhi or others, you are correct-one can only be certain of their salvation, not others. However, I can safely say that if a person does not accept Christ as their personal Savior before they die, then they will face the fire and torment of hell. I doubt if Bell would agree.
