There are some reading this that will say I would give my life for someone I have never met. But in truth there is not greater gift than to give one’s life for his brother man. Tell me are you willing to die for someone you have never met? The fact is the giver of the gift could have just as easily given it to anyone else and you would have been the one that died. Are you willing to bank on someone else dying for you whom they have never met? How then should you be toward the one that gave you that gift?
In other words, no man can stand before God and claim that God turned away because God never provided any understanding of, not only His existence, but also many details of His power and works among men.
The above passage tell us that God has pre-determined the time and location and of every man’s existence, so that they may in seeing nature, know God. And by their heart what is in their heart seek after him. In fact scripture tells us that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6) And God rewards us by reveling himself to us, and even providing the gospel in places where it would not have been so that in those that seek Him are rewarded by the knowledge of Him.
It is therefore not an issue of if they have ever heard of God, but that they have rejected what they already know of God, what they see in nature, and have rejected what they know in their heart. It is the rejection of the knowledge of God that condemns an individual, not the failure to hear the gospel. Hearing the gospel has the responsibility of converting the harden heart of man and preparing the individual for salvation
So then it is not the rejection of the gospel that condemns but the accepting of Jesus Christ and the gospel that saves! So then we understand that there is no salvation without the hearing of the gospel.
