 WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHOHAVE NEVER HEARD OF JESUS? 
By NiteOwlDave niteowldave@gmail.com One of the great questions is would a caring God dispatch anyone to eternalHell if he have never heard about and accepted the one true God?And what about the “heathen” – kind of a slam word - who truly seek the trueGod who sent the Lord Jesus Christ to pay our sin debt?Try this on for sizeAccording to Romans, 1:18-2, every human being has the witness of creation(external) and the witness of conscience (internal).Creation and the amazing planned cycles of life that roll by smoothly centuryafter century point to the existence of a very God. Our conscience convicts us of sin.If we continue sinning, we suppress truth, says 11 Thessalonians 2:10-12. If we suppress sin and seek more truth, we will get it. "Ye shall seek me and find mewhen ye search for me with all your heart"Salvation comes just one way: through believing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Allother ways lead to eternal damnation as in Hell’s bells. The details of how eachseeker hears and believes the gospel varies with individuals.In scripture, Paul was sent to enlighten the seeker, Cornelius. Philip was sent tothe seeking Ethiopian eunuch. The Holy Spirit always rushes into the vacuum created by a seeker of truth.It is a given that God really doesn’t need us to deliver the truth of eternalsalvation through what the Lord Jesus Christ did when He paid our total sins withHis blood when He died and rose again from the dead.Of course He does use those who have the guts to roll up their sleeves and diveinto the fray.Where there is no physical messenger handy to share hands-on the savingmessage, it appears that God uses His own ways to reach the lost.
 
A recent
Christian Aid Praise Report 
tells this: "Some (Afghans) report havingdreams in which Christ appeared to them and revealed Himself as the Truth."The gospel of the Bible packs power.Romans 1:16 - "..gospel of Christ..is the power of God unto salvation toeveryone that believeth.."John 3:18 - "He that believes on him is not condemned,
 
 but he that believethnot is condemned already."John 1:4,5 - "..the light (of Christ) shineth in darkness.."Matthew 5:14 - "Ye are the light of the world..."John 3:19 - "This is the condemnation that light is come into the world andmen loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil...but he that doethtruth cometh to the light.."How does this apply where the rubber meets the road?1. An Iranian Christian friend, raised a strict Muslim and saved in 2001, tells me: “Ihave had
visions
and seen the very throne room of God. It was perhaps like Johnwho traveled to Heaven and detailed, as best he could, what he saw in the Book of Revelation. I tested God and have seen many miraculous things occur. I have hadclear answers to prayers. I have been exposed to God in ways most Christianshaven’t.2. Some get saved through watching Christian DVDs or Hollywood movies.
Movies
like
The
 
 Passion
certainly contain Jesus-drawing clout. I know a guy who was savedmany years ago while watching the moving
 Ben-Hur.
Ben-Hur 
 
is a 1959 epic flick subtitled: A Tale of the Christ.3. Some hear of Christ in
Internet
chat rooms, Christian websites or through youtube videos.4. Others by

.5.
Television
in many areas of the globe carries gospel programming.6.
Christian missionaries
are planted in many places, worldwide.A friend once told me he refused to believe in Jesus “because what about allthose Africans who have never heard of Jesus?” I told him that it’s God’s job to reachthem with the Jesus truth.
