Empty Works, Empty Faith. It’s an all or nothing kind of thing.

Our ol’ buddy Rob Bell made it back on CNN, attempting to rebut criticism of his new book which many accuse promotes Universalism.  Cnn predictably takes sides and fails to ask the key question: “Is faith in Christ the ONLY way to Salvation?”
He equivocates, but fails to state if his belief that Ghandi may be in Heaven is based on Ghandi’s works or his (heretofore unknown)faith in Christ. That’s the key on which no one has asked clarification.

Bell seems insist that “faith without works is dead,” which is true, but we also “have died with Christ, and Christ lives in us.”  Any works we do apart from Christ are likewise dead.  Ghandi was a swell chap, but if he rejected Christ he is not saved.  That’s how it works.
