People keep asking, what about those who never heard of Jesus? Even from people who say they are Christian. I noticed different denominations have different answers and some people use the modern versions to make it look like they could have a special grace to enter by their good works. There are not different ways, there is only one way and that is through faith on Jesus Christ.
I was just going through different websites and they are giving different answers. I don’t agree with all of them, especially from liberal churches and churches that use an NIV or have other books than the bible as scripture and have special prophets they follow. There are all sorts of ministries and some of them are big ones and they are actually teaching that there are other ways to God. That some can come in if they are good people and God will judge them and show them mercy even though they never knew Jesus. They use different bibles, a big tip off to show they use the bible versions to say whatever it is they want to say even if it is not what the plain word says. I trust the King James Bible. I don’t trust those modern versions. I’ve done my research and you can read my thoughts on the matter on this website.
Personally and through God’s word, I don’t see different ways to Christ. What about people in jungles and mountains who never heard the gospel? I’ve seen missionaries go through jungles and climb mountains and go to small Islands to give the gospel. We see people risking their life in North Korea and Saudi Arabia and Iran and places where they know they will face death. I’ve even see someone talk about witnessing to someone while they were being slashed by a knife in South America. The gospel is out everywhere, even so, all people are from the 8 people in Noah’s ark. They all knew through their early fathers who God is and how many know about Jesus and reject Him? Their wicked family members at some point walked away from God and took other gods and what did it do to their kids?They cursed their own children. People are doing that today. The atheists are cursing their children telling them there is no God. The people of other religions are cursing their children telling them about a different god. The people of cult families who have a false Jesus are cursing their children with a Jesus that is unbiblical and comes from the minds of men twisting scripture and claiming to be prophets and to have knowledge equal to scripture. They all curse their families.
I know that sounds incredible narrow minded but I don’t care, it is a narrow way. The answer is simple, the answer is Jesus! Believe on Jesus! Seek God and seek to know the gospel of Jesus Christ. Desire to know God and God will show you.
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
How many people have access to computers and bibles? The way is here for all people! God will show them if they want salvation. God is just and loving and merciful and will do it! He will put someone in your life or a way you can have access to a bible or a missionary who desires to tell you the gospel. God makes this desire in all people because if you look at people who are isolated and living away from civilization they all have spiritual beliefs in a god or gods! They know they are not alone and there is a higher power.
Romans 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
Romans 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
Romans 10:19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
Romans 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
Romans 10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
Anyway, those are my thoughts, I guess I can talk about it more but this is a great sermon on the matter and I just love listening to good preaching. I am shedding a tear as I say that I am so amazed at the power of the Baptist preachers who use the KJV. There is a boldness and a power that can only come from the Holy Spirit. I used to go to different churches, especially non-denominational and those preachers are very calm and they are afraid to say something controversial. When they do I hear people say amen and I see people nodding their heads. I think they are thirsty for these type of sermons but don’t know where to get it. You won’t get it from TV or from a mega church. It isn’t popular. You won’t get it from an NIV church. They are calm and friendly and try to give you a smiling sermon that looks good and is filled with cartoony modern graphics that look great but they are lacking something. I hope if you are going to an NIV church you will try to listen to some of the sermons I post up and notice the power of the preaching from the King James Bible. Things will start changing when you get away from the Contemporary NIV corporate churches with the rock bands and the false happiness. They look fake when they smile. It’s all fake. If you believe these people you don’t have discernment and are a sucker to get duped. You will end up giving money to people who care about money and buildings and concerts more than giving the gospel. They have their priorities all wrong. Hope you wake up and get out of those fake churches.
Please listen, God bless.
