This one raised my curiosity, Wally, so I had to google “Charles Schulz religion.” Here’s Tim Challies brief but informative review of “A Charlie Brown Religion.” Looks like Schulz began in mainline Protestantism and drifted into universalism toward the end of his life.

I hear he did Tom. Do people just give up when they near the end sometimes I wonder? Seems too common. I pray for a strong finish for myself

My mind can’t comprehend a situation where someone genuinely accepted Christ and the Gospel and then turned to another belief system. Yes, a child of God could walk in disobedience for a “season” but to follow another gospel, that I can’t grasp. My guess is Schulz knew about Christianity but didn’t know Christ.

It is hard to understand, Tom, and I suppose it’s one of those things we will never know for sure this side of heaven. I sometimes wonder how long “a season” is. My own mother seemingly rejected the true faith for much of her life, yet people assure me that she was a believer when she passed. I often wonder…..was she always and just walked in rebellion for decades…or did she just come to Him at the end? I guess we can’t really know. Which is why I take the opportunity to always talk about Jesus and salvation, even around folks I am certain are believers. Come to one of the Sunday school classed I teach LOL, and you would see what I mean.

Right, only God knows the heart. Even when I walked away from the Lord for a very long time – didn’t go to church, didn’t read the Bible – I knew the Gospel was true and still knew Jesus. I couldn’t imagine someone genuinely knowing Jesus as Savior but then down the road saying, “Yeah, I was pretty heavy into that Jesus stuff at one point but now I think everyone can earn salvation via their own religion or by being good.” That person never knew Christ to begin with. Sorry, don’t mean to quibble with the choir.

No worries, Tom, and no quibbles with the choir here at all! That did strike me though, because that is exactly my mother said to me as to why, if she believed, had she never mentioned it to me in all of those years. Her answer was she thought I would be okay because I was “a good boy.”
Food for thought for sure.
