The story goes that Karl Barth (a famous theologian who worked about a century ago) was accused of being a Universalist—that is, he believed that everyone would eventually end up in heaven, irrespective of their faith, behaviour of religion. He didn’t answer the accusation, but simply replied, ‘Well, let’s just say I think there will be a lot of surprises.
That’s the thing about grace. If God wants to give someone more than they deserve, so be it. After all, that’s what he gives each of us anyway.
