Greg Laurie — What about the Person Who Has Never Heard the Gospel?
Usually when a someone asks, "What about the person who has never heard the gospel; will God send them to hell?" they are not really concerned about that person, but are using the question as a tactic to sidetrack you. However, if you are really wondering about this question, Pastor Greg answers it in his message from Revelation chapter 14. You will also hear about God's angelic mop-up operation to make sure every person hears the gospel message before the end.
Can a person go so far that God will not forgive him? Pastor Greg Laurie answers that question. It's a broadcast dedicated to the big issues of life and death, heaven and hell.
We are made in the image of God and he has set eternity in our hearts. He reveals himself to the person truly seeking him. Responsibility lies with each soul. To choose God or not is intentional and we determine our destination. All roads lead to God, but only Jesus leads to heaven.
What happens to the person who has never heard the gospel before? How could a God of love send someone to hell who has never heard the gospel? People don’t want an answer to that question. In this age of moral relativism, it rubs a lot of people the wrong way when we have the audacity to say Jesus Christ is the only way to God.
In Revelation 14, we see the Antichrist in power, we see God engaging in what could be described as an angelic mop-up operation, and we see how the whole world will hear the gospel before the end.
What will we say at your memorial service? What things will we note? What kind of works do you have to follow you? If you don’t have any works following you, you have to wonder if you are a true believer. Works don’t save you, but they are good evidence that you are saved. We want real saving faith so our works will follow us in that final day.
