Clinton Comments on the Gospel
On July 21st of this year, in response to the death of his close friend, Vincent W. Foster, Jr., President Bill Clinton is reported by the New York Times News Service to have said,
Clearly Mr. Clinton is not a candidate for membership in GES! He views eternal salvation as something which is earned by works.
He has forgotten the teachings of the Bible concerning the Gospel:

the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.
I wish that the President had instead said something like this:
Of course, I do not know whether Vince Foster believed in Christ or not. However, that is the only legitimate basis upon which President Clinton or anyone else can assert that we know that someone is with the Lord. For regardless of how good one's works might appear, "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Rom 3:23). No one comes to the Father except by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
