Be Prepared: What About People Who Never Hear the Gospel?

A concise, Biblical Answer to the Question: What About People Who Never Hear the Gospel? How Can They Be Saved?

be prepared to answer this question:

What happens to people who never hear the gospel?

Scripture doesn't fully address this question, but we know these facts:

1. God loved the world enough to send Jesus (John 3:16). He wants people to be saved (2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:3-4).

2. The example of Rahab shows us that God goes to great efforts to save a single soul in a pagan culture (Joshua 2 & 6). And it proves that someone indoctrinated in a pagan culture can still discern truth from error if they are seeking God (Jeremiah 29:13)!

3. God gives every man two solid testimonies even if they don't have a Bible:
His character revealed in creation (Romans 1:20)
A conscience (Romans 2:12-16)

4. God always does what's right for each individual.
"He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he" (Deuteronomy 32:4).
