Spurgeon moment

Answering a student’s question, “Will the heathen who have not heard the Gospel be saved?” thus, it is more a question with me whether we, who have the Gospel and fail to give it to those who have not, can be saved.

Charles Spurgeon

I love your passion Wayne! It is impossible to obey the first great command while being disobedient to the second. How can "we" love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, if we do not love our neighbor as ourself? To the same degree it is nothing more than superficial theological drivel to boast about doing missions for the glory of God if we do not have the greatest concern in our hearts for the welfare of the lost men and women who were created in the image of God and yet rush headlong into hell. Let our hearts resonate with the words of the Apostle Paul, "I am telling the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience testifies with me in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and unceasing grief in my heart. For I could wish tha I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my brethern, my kinsmen according to the flesh..."(Romans 9:1-3).

Hopefully that death on the cross was enough for the sinner who knows the gospel, but for whatever reason, hides it under a bushel (sometimes).

And the heathen who has never heard the name of Jesus?

God knows the hearts of every man/woman and will judge accordingly
