    Like most of us I have friends and contacts from all over the world and tonight I was viewing some posts from friends who's roots are in the Indian continent. There were lovely photographs of my friends family and their families enjoying a loving occasion in full Indian dress garb and with appropriate Hindu religious pomp. Most of these people and millions before them, will die without hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    What are our thoughts on this?

    Perhaps Christianity is indeed a way of accessing God. But perhaps Christianity telling itself it's the only way to access God is an error of presumption and overreach in its founding literature.

    I don't know if most will die without hearing about Jesus. Maybe not even half.
    Either way , from what I understand, they (Hindus) have a great reverence for other religions (as opposed to some Christians).

    I guess your op was directed more at Christians, because as far as I'm concerned there is nothing to see here.
    Their karma in this life will lead them to where they deserve to be after they die. Just like everyone else.

    Perhaps you had something more specific in mind?

    Romans 2. Also i think the bible said the gospel was preached all over the world.

    That's clearly not the case, though with the advent of the net it's getting there 🙂

    You looking for someone to tell you what to think, now?

    The word "our" ~ surely ~ simply refers to everyone in our community who might want to share their thoughts on the OP?

    Are you going to share yours on the OP?

    There is probably a Hindu discussion forum out there where someone has just pondered about the millions of Christians who will die without having read the Vedas.

    Especially after all the Christians here stopped reading them when Dasa disappeared.

    Just to be clear: that DOES or DOES NOT, in your view, include Rajk999?

    Yes I am interested in the opinions of non Christians, but specifically of Christians in respect of people dying without hearing the gospel and what happens to them.
