    Re: Will those the Gospel has Not Reached Go To Hell? You Betcha

    I was delighted recently to read of a doctor's mission trip to SE Asia. He concluded most of the people there had never heard of Jesus. Using his medical terminology, he said sin was so bad there it is a pandemic.

    It is worse than covid, he said, because a pandemic passes. An eternity in fire does not.

    The people were dying from an eternal pandemic with no cure in sight In fact, most of them had never heard the name of Jesus before in their life

      In fact, as I was sitting down some days ago preparing to write out a testimony regarding our trip, I received a text from one of the team members on the ground there asking for prayer for a demon-possessed boy named Nishant. I’m excited to report that two hours after we asked our local church to pray for Nishant, I received another unsolicited update letting us know that it seems Nishant was delivered. Praise the Lord!
      Genesis 1:31 – 2:2 God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
      When God made eyeball worms and botflies He described them as Very Good© because there was no sin in the world. Once Eve started operating, that changed almost immediately. The Scripture reference is explicit that everything was already made by then. God did not start moonlighting on Himself by doing another batch to infect eyeballs or burrow into the skin as maggots.

      Even thorns and thistles were not created to impede agriculture Genesis 3:18 but either had their nature changed or previously grew somewhere else. Was that was an act of God, causing thornless varieties to sprout spikes, or the direct influence of sin? For example, an appropriately tuned pipe organ causing its building to collapse is a direct result of the sound. God doesn't say,“O that organ is producing a dreadful sound I'd better go and disintegrate the building.” The sound pressure alone is enough to do that. Sin could directly cause spikes to sprout OR God could modify the plants in some way OR preexisting thistles and thorns growing elsewhere could have been introduced.

      Loathsome disease is rampant in SE Asia, all of Asia actually, but just as God has not told us how thistles got here—because it's unimportant—so it is with worms and maggots. The interaction between humans and other lifeforms might never have had a botfly ready to deposit maggots in the same place as a human at the same time. Similarly with eyeball worms. Your eye needs to be where the worm is if it's going jo jump into your eye. They could have already existed or their nature could have become infused with sin, radiating out from Eve, just as Adam was infused.

      The sin lifestyle clearly brings humans and The Botts into close proximity. It's a straightforward infection. Demons however have changed their nature from angelic beings to vile incorporeal agents every bit as keen to jump in as botflies and worms but lacking the means to do so without explicit invitation. False religions are merely the formula enabling that invitation to be made. It could be a form of words, a style of dancing, drum rhythms specific to an individual demon, even some revolting concoction consumed as food. Asia has all of these and in its SouthEast all of them are celebrated at the same time.

      Ignorant types who deny God's existence and claim there's nothing historical in The New Testament often ask me, “If demon possession is a thing and can be remedied through prayer, why not pray for all demons to be evacuated from all humans?” That would deny faith. It's about as meaningful as claiming God came back on the eighth day to create leprosy.

      Acts 12:23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

        I know that I don't want my eternal reward sitting next to Jesus to be marred by the presence of a bunch of ignorant, dark-skinned savages who haven't heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. Who knows what kind of sins they'd commit in Heaven? Perhaps God might let in a few as scullery maids or as dancers at heavenly luaus and whatnot, but I don't want to have to call the INS to report my neighbors in Heaven the way I do here on Earth. And, for God's sake, I don't want to have to deal with people speaking languages other than English after I die.

          One of the bright spots for Christianity has been our local jails. Usually they are run by a local Sheriff who is Christian. The Sheriff hires a local Baptist to be the jail's chaplain. The chaplain holds Bible study in jail and the prisoners who attend can ask the chaplain to recommend an early release. Those who regularly attend Bible study get out early and other prisoners learn the benefits of Jesus. It's a win-win.

          Now, this system of Christian mission is being threatened. A prisoner in Colorado was ordered to spend his parole time at a Christian mission. He was required to attend Bible instruction at the Mission but refused because he is an atheist. The judge sent him back to jail for several months.

          Instead of finding Jesus, the prisoner found ACLU. ACLU and its partners in crime sued the jail. The court ordered the jail to pay the prisoner $100,000 for jail's Christian instruction. That guy should still be in jail and forced to stay there until he finds Jesus.

            II Timothy 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us

            Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.​


            Clearly anyone pretending to "accept Jesus" is a namby-pamby half-baked varlet deserving no good thing, unlike the full-blown scumbag whose activities are not counterfeiting anything. “I am a crook,” we learn, if we pay attention. “Everything I say is false and I will rob you blind. If possible I will then steal your country, shoot all your generals, sell off the navy (perhaps even to France) and install a truckload of trained monkeys to run everything which I have around here somewhere. But if I don't, I'll take over all the zoos and you'll get hippopotamuses so you'd better start training the monkeys!” Such a creature not lukewarm.

            Meanwhile, in Heaven, there is a reigning activity going on. Jesus is king of everything, all the bubbleheads have been shot off into the flaming lake where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched Mark 9:48 and happiness is real at last, just as God intended from Day One – except Eve turned up, bringing down The Curse on everything. This will then have been undone. But over whom should we reign? Not the incinerated wretches, one would hope. Who'd want them around? Especially if they were one's parents or children? So, although not demon possessed, and whether for entertainment purposes or other duties, but definitely not aligned with "alternative" versions of paradise where being one amounts to a worse fate than fire pits IMO, certain lesser types must be available to reign over (just not "lukewarm" species) otherwise what would be the point of reigning at all? That is patently ridiculous and God is not ridiculous. That is why The Bible is not ridiculous.
            Revelation 22:3-5 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants [Christians] shall serve him: and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.​​
