God’s Righteousness will save the Unknowing World…

Romans 2:12-16, “For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.”

A familiar question arises about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is how will those who have never heard the Good News be saved? After all if you have never heard the story of redemption and accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior how can you be called redeemed and Holy in God’s eye? The Bible simply states that those who have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be judged based simply on their personal sense of right and wrong or conscience. We must remember that God is just in all that he does, (Revelations 19:1-2) especially with those who have never heard about Jesus.

The Lord is always prevailing on our behalf to become saved and spread the Gospel. Even in this modern information age at times the Christian message can be missed, by some in third world and communist countries. This news is very comforting, even for me at times who struggled with finding an answer for the rest of the world not fortunate enough to have been born in a free society. This can also be related to those in other religions, who have never heard the Gospel but follow a religion which teaches wholesome living. That goodness will be used to reveal Christ to the unsaved upon the Lord’s return. This is not to say those who have heard but rejected the Gospel will be saved but those who have NEVER heard and still have a still moral sense of being.

So if the question ever arises that there cannot be only one way to God. Let them know there are many roads for those who have never heard the Gospel, but they always lead to Jesus Christ the Messiah. Shalom…
