Question 169

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Will God send someone to hell if they have not heard the gospel?


This VERY QUESTION has stumped many christians.

The TRUTH is that the Gospel has ALREADY been spread to the ENTIRE WORLD through the Apostles, their disciples, and students, the Early Church Fathers , right on down to the modern day Missionaries and Evangelist.

God KNOWS the THOUGHTS and MIND of every person alive saved or lost, if a Lost person WANTS to know the TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL God will send someone to share the gospel to them.

In the Book of Acts we have a man name Cornelius who wanted to know the truth so God sent the Apostle Peter to him to PREACH to him the TRUTH of God’s Word – Acts 10:1-45. records the visit and details.

Every Person KNOWS there is a God, Romans 1:20 states:

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.

God holds the lost person RESPONSIBLE no matter if they are a savvy business person on Wall Street, in New York, or if they belong to a tribe or villiage DEEP in the jungles of Africa WITH the evidence of a creator (God) that they can see, like the Stars in the Night Sky , The Sun by Day, The Moon by Night, the Clouds ect,ect, ect, God CONCLUDES no matter what they are WITHOUT EXCUSE if they choose to NOT seek to know him.

(Matthew 6:33) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

In Conclusion:

A person MUST REMEMBER God is a JUST and RIGHTEOUS God, he will NOT ALLOW any one to go to hell WITHOUT good reason.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
