Is “Craig's contentious suggestion” really so implausible?

Faith and Philosophy 22 (3):358-362 (2005)

William Lane Craig
Houston Baptist University
Raymond Van Arragon considers my my suggestion that most of those who never have the opportunity to accept Christ during their earthly lives suffer from transworld damnation, and he offers four different interpretations of that notion. He argues that at least three of these interpretations are such that on them the suggestion becomes implausible. I maintain that once my suggestion is properly understood, then, despite Van Arragon’s misgivings, it ought not to be thought implausible even on the first two, boldest interpretations he offers
