Ignorant Of The Gospel And Lost?

Bible Questions Answered:
“Pastor I have not seen on -view a list of subjects- this question, and we have tossed this question around now for some time. Here it is, if people in a land somewhere do not know the gospel, will they then be forever lost?...”
Bill/ Moscow, Russia

Bible Answer:
Bible Texts:

These kind of peoples are referred to as “lost tribes.” People of in remote jungles, in countries such as Asia, Oceania, or South America, etc.

First of all let it be stated that our Bible refers to three kinds of spiritual witness!

1.) Nature:
Is nature and all that is around us a testament of God and His great power? Yes!

Psalm 19:1-3 KJV
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handy work.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Psalm 97:6 KJV
The heavens declare His righteousness, and all the people see His glory.

Romans 1:18-20 NLT
18 But God shows His anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress The Truth by their wickedness.
19 They know The Truth about God because He has made it obvious to them.
20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

2.) Conscience:

John 1:9 KJV
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

Romans 2:14-16 NLT
14 Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know His law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.
15 They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience* and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right.
16 And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.

*Conscience-Greek: Suneidesis (Soon-i-day-sis): Moral Consciousness: Conscience.

The inner sense of what is right or wrong in one's conduct or motives, impelling one toward right action: (

God The Almighty Creator, has created within the breast of every person, something called a conscience.

A moral guide to what is right and what is wrong. Every one that has ever lived has had within them a conscience, there are no exceptions. And then too again, every one has had nature as a guide to a mighty Creator, one who has judgment, and wisdom!

3.) The Gospel:
John 20:31 KJV
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is The Christ, The Son Of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name.

Romans 1:16 KJV
For I am not ashamed of The Gospel Of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

II Timothy 3:16 NLT
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

I John 5:13 KJV
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of The Son Of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of The Son Of God.

We dear reader have been brought up in civilization, that is we have been raised up in school, and the church may or may not have been apart of our lives, still its morality has been branded across our land, who would deny it?

So, we, the civilized know about the Bible, we know and have received or rejected the idea of God, and so we are without an excuse.

But the people of the “lost tribes,” what about them? They have never heard the gospel. Never been in a church, never seen a Bible, what about them?

Well as we have already seen, they have had two witnesses to them, all of nature, and their God given conscience.

What if a tribes man, did his best as to do what his heart told him was right, would he be lost, not having prayed the sinners prayer??

Here is an answer, and given no less than by our dear Lord and Savior.

Luke 12:35-48 NLT (Be ready for The Lord's coming!)
35 “Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning,
36 as though you were waiting for your Master to return from the wedding feast. Then you will be ready to open the door and let Him in the moment He arrives and knocks.
37 The servants who are ready and waiting for His return will be rewarded. I tell you The Truth, He Himself will seat them, put on an apron, and serve them as they sit and eat!
38 He may come in the middle of the night or just before dawn. But whenever He comes, He will reward the servants who are ready.
39 “Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would not permit his house to be broken into.
40 You also must be ready all the time, for The Son Of Man will come when least expected.”
41 Peter asked, “Lord, is that illustration just for us or for everyone?”
42 And The Lord replied, “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom The Master can give the responsibility of managing His other household servants and feeding them.
43 If The Master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.
44 I tell you The Truth, The Master will put that servant in charge of all He owns.
45 But what if the servant thinks, ‘My Master won’t be back for a while,’ and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk?
46 The Master will return unannounced and unexpected, and He will cut the servant in pieces and banish him with the unfaithful.
47 “And a servant who knows what The Master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished.
48 But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.

Did you see The Master's answer?
Luke 12:48 NLT
But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly.”

Luke 12:48 KJV
"But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes..."

Genesis 18:20-26,32 KJV (Abraham intercedes for Lot, and his family.)
20 And The Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto Me; and if not, I will know.
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before
The Lord.
23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
26 And The Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
32 And he (Abraham) said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

The bold answer here:
Genesis 18:25 KJV
... Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

Yes dear friend, The Judge Of All The Earth, shall do right, without any coaching from earthly man!

And so, the...
Question: Is it possible for an individual tribesman, ignorant as they are of The Gospel, yet be saved by God??

Answer: Yes.

Well if that is possible and in the mercy and love of almighty God, it seems so, why Pastor don't you tell folks so?”

Because, people would then think...
“Whats the use of sending out missionaries? God will be generous to people of little knowledge, etc. etc.”

God help us, what human reasoning, God save us from earthly mindedness!

Why send missionaries, why go to the ends of the earth with The Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ?
Because of the reason man was created, that's why!

Isaiah 43:7 NLT
Bring all who claim Me as their God, for I have made them for My glory. It was I who created them.’”

Revelation 4:11 KJV
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Man was created to bring glory and honor to The Living God!
And he cannot do that as an ignorant tribesman.
What eternal reward, may an ignorant tribesman receive?

It is our duty, no, our command of The Lord to witness and to evangelize, without exception.

Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Mark 16:15,16 KJV
15 And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Why is every Christian commanded to do this?
Obedience to our Lord.
Sharing The Gospel, to set others free from sin, to live in and to do the will of God.
So that lost lives may come to know The Living God, no matter where they live, be at peace, know the joy of The Lord, and to one day be rewarded by Him!
To banish the enemy!

I John 3:8 KJV
"...For this purpose The Son Of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

I John 4:4 KJV
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

We who know The Word Of God:

Luke 12:47,48 KJV
47 “And a servant who knows what The Master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished.
48 But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.

Hebrews 10:28-31 KJV
28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot The Son Of God, and hath counted The Blood Of The Covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto The Spirit Of Grace?
30 For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me, I will recompense, saith The Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of The Living God.

Hebrews 3:15 KJV
While it is said, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts..."
