An “Inclusivist” Evangelical Theology of Religions
Wideness in God’s Mercy
God’s self-revelation, a revelation of person; dynamic view, development
Revelation is not only the matter of the past, God still speaks
God’s revelation is for the whole world, not only for the “elect”;
the one for the many
The Spirit is “guiding, luring, wooing, influencing, drawing all humanity, not just the church”
“Revelation is neither contentless experience (liberalism) nor timeless propositions (conservativism). It is the dynamic self-disclosure of God, who makes his goodness known in the history of salvation, in the process of disclosure culminating in Jesus Christ. Revelation is not primarily existential impact or infallible truths but divine self-revelation that both impacts and instructs. The mode of revelation is self-disclosure and interpersonal communication. As such it is pregnant with significance and possible development.”
