View 5

If a person "lives up to the light that he has," God will then allow him into heaven. Personal acceptance of Jesus Christ is not essential for the Heathen.

Implication A:    Implies if a person has never had a chance to hear the gospel, he then is not responsible for personally accepting the gospel.  For more information, refer to the chapter "Breakdown of View 1," Implication A.
Implication B:    Implies it would be better not to send missionaries to the heathen.

If the heathen are already going to Heaven, sending them a missionary would only give them the opportunity to reject Christ, and thus, go to Hell. For more information, refer to the chapter "Breakdown of View 1," Implication A.
