The divine plan on salvation
The issues related to the judging of each
individual person are concealed from us, and only when God
Himself so decides will He reveal some of His
saints within His Church, even now. However, God has
also revealed certain elements pertaining to the matter of
Salvation, His purposes, His plan, as well as the means for
our salvation. We shall be examining these issues in the
"God desires not only that the nations be saved, but each individual soul. A simple Indian, believing in his own way in the Creator and fulfilling His will as best he can, will be saved; but he who, knowing about Christianity, follows the Indian mystical path, will not." (Elder Nektary of Optina [Ivan Kontzevitch, Elder Nektary of Optina, p. 181]).
