If They’ve Never Heard posted by John Sorensen on Apr 19, 2016
Have you ever heard someone say that they can’t believe in a God who would send people to Hell simply for not believing in a Christ they never heard of?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Too often, the people making that statement assume that people living in primitive lands are innocent. That because they haven’t heard of Christ, they can’t be accountable. In reality, people may be ignorant of Christ, but they are not innocent because the Bible teaches “all have sinned.” This is the basic motive and urgency for the entire Christian missionary movement. We also know from Scripture that no one is truly ignorant of God because God has mercifully revealed himself through the light of Christ and also through the light of conscience; that is, a knowledge of right and wrong. He’s also revealed Himself through creation itself, as the heavens declare the glory of God. So, while “All have sinned” the Good News is that Jesus Christ says, Whoever believes in me, has everlasting life. For more help, visit us at ShareLife.today.
