Atheists’ favourite excuse for rebelling against God!

What happens if a man in South America dies without ever hearing the Gospel; and is it fair that God would send such a person to hell, even though it’s not their fault?

If I asked you to put a name next to that statement, who would it be? Reality is almost every atheist has said those same words at one point or the other. Infact that statement is atheists’ favourite statement whenever they are faced with the need for their own repentance. God says ‘why should you die, repent’, and an atheist says ‘well God, people in South America don’t have an opportunity to repent, so I won’t repent in their solidarity’. They stage a protest against God, and hope that God’s wrath upon their sins will cease. It’s like refusing to do your job at work, because there are unemployed people sitting at home doing nothing, so you are protesting in solidarity with them hoping that will help them get a job. Regardless of how you look at it, it still looks stupid and it’s in no way going to help your situation or the situation of people you are protesting for.

Rebelling against God is not going help those in South America, India, Chinese, etc, infact it would be making their situation even worse. But somehow an atheist’s logic tells him/her that it would somehow helps. If employment is linked to economic growth, as it is, then how is staging a protest on your work going to lead to economic growth and then employment? If you protest against your employer, then you are likely to be retrenched, as the company would not be making enough profits to continue paying your salary. Retrenchment leads to both you and the people you are protesting for ending up with no jobs. It works the same way with God.

God has made it possible for you to hear the Gospel, so you can make sure that those who haven’t had the same privilege does so. Instead of you sulking like a little child, you are supposed to be fearlessly preaching to those who have never heard the Gospel, but rather you are busy feeling sorry for yourself and scoring points with your friends by making them think you care for those in obscure countries where the Gospel is not widely available. I know you are a hypocrite by making the above statement, so put your money where your mouth is or shut up. The bible says “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (Romans 10:14).

The bible makes it clear that people can’t be saved without being preached to, and God trusted you with the Gospel so you can preach to them. But instead you have decided to call yourself an atheist, and dedicate yourself to ridiculing God. Do you think you were in the right place at the right time, that’s why you heard the Gospel? No, you were not, but rather God has become merciful to you so you can be merciful to those who have never the Gospel. Yet you decided to spit at God’s grace that He has shown to you. Maybe you should stop feeling sorry for those in obscure countries, because God will judge them based on what they know, but you will be judged based on what you were entrusted with (Luke 12:48).

For every person who dies without hearing the Gospel, there will be one more person who will be held accountable for his/her blood. The bible says “When I say to a wicked man, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood” (Ezekiel 3:18). So you can be sure that God will hold you accountable for the lives of some of those who have never the Gospel, whether you are now an atheist or not. If God sent you to South America, and you are busy protesting against Him, then you can be sure that those people’s lives will be on your charge sheet.

Had you decided to do the job that God sent you to do, then there would be no people going to hell. So you are partly to blame for the popularity of hell.
