With news stories being released about the death of missionary John Chau, many questions are being asked about missions work and the fate of the unevangelized. Should we be trying to spread the Gospel to all people? Should we just leave them alone to do their own thing? How could God send someone to hell who has never heard?
A while back I wrote the blog, “What happens to those who have never heard the gospel?”. It gives a short response to a difficult question. In the podcast this week I share my thoughts on John Chau and the fate of the unevangelized. Hopefully the more detailed response can help you think through this difficult issue while we pray for the friends and family of John Chau.
