What about the people who have not heard about Jesus, how will they be judged?
“The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world.” – Psalm 19:1-4
- Psalm 19 says that through God’s creation, His glory is manifest, so that though many people may have not had a chance to hear about God by mouth, the creation speaks for itself
“For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.” – Luke 12:48
“for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves” – Romans 2:14
- In Romans it says that Gentiles have a law onto themselves, meaning that they will not be judged according to the law that they do not know but will be judged differently.
Ultimately we must conclude that God is Justice and that God is mercy;
“Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.” – Psalm 85:10.
So He is both perfectly merciful and perfectly just and we must trust in His divine judgement.
