People often ask: “What about those who have never heard the gospel? If what you are telling me about Jesus is true, what chance could they possibly have of making it to heaven?” Only God knows the answer to this very reasonable question. He has provided the way for all to come to Him, regardless of the fact that we are unable to fully understand His methods. God’s justice demands it.
Each and every person on earth has the chance to become one of God’s chosen few.
Everything God does, whether it’s His compassion and mercy, or His wrath, stems from His intrinsic love for people. The bigger question is this: what have you done about His overwhelmingly gracious gift. What are you making of this opportunity in light of the fact that you have heard? This is where personal responsibility comes into play. You’ve now heard the truth; it’s time to act!
