No one has never heard of Jesus.
Sometimes double negatives are helpful in making a point aren't they? Or at least they get your attention... Read on to see why I phrased the title of this note that way...
Jesus said "I am the Way the Truth and the Life." This verse in Romans mentions the truth and what can be known about God - which by logical conclusion is His Son Jesus.
I understand why people say "what about those who have never heard.." They're just repeating what others have said. But what does God say? Ted Tripp puts it this way in Ch 3 of "Shepherding a Child's Heart:"
"All people have God's clear revelation of truth, but wicked people suppress that truth. They refuse to acknowledge and submit to the things God has made plain. Paul goes on to say that 'although they know God they do not glorify Him, but become futile on their thinking and eventually worship idols.' In the language of Romans 1, your children either respond to God by faith or they suppress the truth in unrighteousness. If they respond to God by faith, they find fulfillment in knowing and serving God. If they suppress the truth in unrighteousness, try will ultimately worship and serve the creation rather than the Creator."
Let's train our kids to have a "Godward orientation" and pray they never get disorientated!!!
