The problem with saying that Christ will not appear in visions, is that He did appear after His resurrection to many and not just during the short time after His death, but also appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus, or are you saying that Paul's vision, as well as His appearance to others (like at the tomb) is a lie?

those that have never heard the Gospel will be judge according to their knowledge. What they don't know will not be used against them yet they will not have the joy of living thier life today in the kingdom of God. We can't really say for certainty what God will do to them but God is Just and I'm sure he will judge according to the Love that they have for him and for others even without the knowledge of the one they serve.

That's something we'll find out when WE die.

Whether you should worry about it depends upon whether you think Gd is merciful or vengeful.

But for what it's worth, most of them think they'll either go to their version of heaven, or be reincarnated.

Whisper: "JESUS has been appearing to those Muslims, personally in their dreams and visions and walking into prisons and bedrooms... READ AWAY...."

Jesus does not appear in dreams and visions. Jesus won't appear until His second coming. If they say He is in the prison, do not believe him. If they say He is in the bedroom, do not believe her.

for those who have never heard of the Gospel of God they will surely not be resurrested in the first resurrection, but will be judged at the second resurrestion.
---Steveng on 12/15/07

In Matthew 18 it says that this world will not end until everyone has been witnessed to. It says that we Christians are held accountable for every person that we reconize as unsaved that we do not witness to because we are sending them to hell.

Shawn, not only the opportunity. I am convinced that every single person who ever lived will be saved. Click on my name below and you will find the scriptures alluding to that. Merry Christmas!

Eloy:: You are wrong there are many who have not read the bible but are good by instinct & better than those who read HIS word and defect.Please do not make Rash judjements. The uneducated at least have an excuse as against those who have full knowledge & still default.

My intent is to only speak Gods True Word, not to make anyone feel that they should not ask what is on their heart.

I should have said, {No one will die without being given the opportunity to accept Christ, because He came here for everyone.}. Instead of starting with So WHY would you think, which is offensive and could deter a person from asking future questions?

I Apologize! And Hope this isnt the case?
---Shawn.M.T on 12/14/07

Did you know already (before writing this blog) that everyone would be given the opportunity to accept Christ. How do you understand your question?
---Shawn.M.T on 12/14/07

Shawn, my blog question was only hypothetical. Just wanted various opinions.
---InimicusStultitiae on 12/14/07

Those having died without hearing the gospel of Christ, would not have had the opportunity or privilege of embracing the Father's word of salvation through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus, or willingly acknowledge and confess Him as Lord.They will be raised in the first resurrection and taught the salvation of God during the millennial reign of Jesus. They will be given the choice of accepting or rejecting that salvation. "It is written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of the LORD".
---Josef on 12/14/07

Pt.2 Isa.54:13 was initiated during the first advent of the LORD and shall be continued during His millennia reign. For in the first advent Jesus was sent only to the lost sheep of the (natural) house of Israel, because it was appropriate to "Let the children (of the old covenant) first be filled". However 'all' of mankind will be taught of Him, for it is written. "This gospel of the kingdom must be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, then shall the end come."
---Josef on 12/14/07

the wicked by nature whom never heard the gospel goes to hell, and the righteous by nature whom never heard the gospel goes to heaven.
---Eloy on 12/14/07

When you get a chance, please key in dreams and visions of Jesus in Iraq, and you will then understand how the HOLY SPIRIT does not depend on you or me....JESUS has been appearing to those Muslims, personally in their dreams and visions and walking into prisons and bedrooms... READ AWAY....

(1)Remember Saul (now Paul) on the road to Damascus.

We know that Christ said no one comes to me except the Father sent them? We also know that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son.

Christ gave Himself to (everyone) the world, for the sins of everyone (the world).

So WHY would you think anyone would die without being given the opportunity to accept Christ, if He came here for everyone?

(2)Remember, God has placed before (everyone) the world his grace in the form of Jesus Christ. If they take note of it or not is left up to them. Saul could have ignored the Lord on the road to Damascus but he chose not to because he heard the Word.

In some form or another, the Lord has and continues to present the Word of God made flesh Jesus Christ before everyone.

Ryan, oh, okay. A little irony is good for the soul.
---InimicusStultitiae on 12/13/07

God gives everyone the choice to follow him or not. It is his desire that no man goes to hell, for it was not designed for people, but for Satan. God knows the heart of man. He would not hide himself from his creation knowing they would become his child if given the opportunity.
---kady on 12/13/07

Inimicus:God is a perfect merciful God.He creates manking unto His Imsge & likeness,HE HAS THEREFOR BUILT INTO EACH MAN THE DESIRE TO BE GOOD KIND COMPASSIONATE TOGETHER WITH CHOICE.Being Born into a denomination or a sect does not take this essence of God,away from each individual.Hence we are called to 'strive' to reach the Goal He expects from everyone has an equal chance. - A level playimg field.You are what you want to Be.

InimicusStultitiae, I was being sarcastic.
---Ryan_Z on 12/13/07

If God isn't just, He isn't a god, but just a very powerful tyrant. How can it be just, to punish someone for something they have no control over? I believe God will give everyone a chance. Peter said that the Gospel would be preached even to the dead and why preach to them unless they could have the chance to accept it and benefit from it?
---chris on 12/13/07

Ryan, if they have not reached the age of accountability, they go to heaven but their parents who loved them and nurtured them burn in hell? How will they feel about that for all eternity? Where does the Bible spell out what the age of accountability is?
---InimicusStultitiae on 12/13/07

They will die and go to hell, if Jesus does not save them. Which I must tell you, He can do. Preaching won't save you. But Jesus can save you without the preaching.

While they will end up in hell even though they never heard of Jesus. And with the tech. that is out here today in some areas have away to know Jesus Christ that is why we as Christians have to spread the word.
---Ann on 12/13/07

ALL, will have heard. Therefore without excuse.
---Whisper on 12/13/07

hie there!

The Bible says " For God so loved the world that he gave His only beggotten son that whosoever beileves in Him shouldnt perish but have everlasting life."John 3: 16

God is a just God. he will make a way. Its the soul reason we are here. To get saved.I personally therefore believe Ones will hear of jesus before they die, one way or another and they have to make a choice. God has put his law into unbelievers hearts and more.
---brian3745 on 12/13/07

It all depends on if they reached the biblically unprovable age of accoubtability before they slept.
