How Does God Approach People Who Have Never Heard The Gospel?
Here's an amazing sermon my friend Mike Winger gave a few weeks ago on how God approaches people who have never heard the gospel. The question is an important one: how do other humans around the world, especially those thousands of years in the past know about the God of Israel?
Mike also provides thoroughly fresh insights from Hebrews 11, especially on how Paul (I believe to be the author of Hebrews) speaks about people who existed before Abraham, and yet they had a salvific faith that wasn't confined to a Mosaic covenant. If that is possible, then we can be rest assured that small pockets of humans around the world (for the last ~50,000 years) that weren't confined to an ancient Near-Eastern Mesopotamian region (for example, the aborigines in Australia), did have experiences with the God of Israel.
