Soul Competency

Soul competency is a Protestant Theological concept. The concept confers to an idea that the individual soul of a person is accountable to one’s basic obedience to God outside of their convictions, beliefs, and circumstance. This includes effects of mental illness, Protestantism, and the New Age.

Would souls, deceived by this teaching, receive salvation?
