A similar statement was made by the great Indian leader Mohandas K. Gandhi: "It was more than I could believe that Jesus was the only incarnate son of God. And that only he who believed in him would have everlasting life. If God could have sons, all of us were his sons. If Jesus was like God ... then all men were like God and could be God himself!" Gandhi said that he could not believe that there was any "mysterious or miraculous virtue" in Christ's death on the Cross .
Gandhi, like other Hindus, could not accept the Christian answer to the problem of sin. And yet he felt a deep hunger for real salvation from sin. He wrote: "For it is an unbroken torture for me that I am still so far from Him, who, as I fully know, governs every breath of my life, and whose offspring I am. I know that there is the evil passions within me that keep me so far from Him and yet I cannot get away from them."
How wonderful it would have been of Ghandi could have said with the apostle Paul: "What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to Eloah (God) - through Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) our Lord! ... Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Messiah Yah'shua (Christ Jesus)" (Rom.7:24-25; 8:1).
