I agree.<quoted text>Good evening Trifectal, I agree with your post about many alledged churches are trying to sell Christianity for profit, they can never sell the Lord Jesus Christ in reality because only HE can draw men and women unto him, and his sheep will hear his voice and respond, and I agree up to an extent about the tribesman but I still maintain that God will find a way to get the Word to an honest heart and sincere heart, be it by a pastor or servant in person or by multimedia i.e. television, radio, internet etc, so essentially we are saying the same thing but a little differently, I too believe that God can sustain that person to a point without the Word, but to truly grow in Christ and to be able to put on the whole armor of God.........then at some point they are going to have to receive the sincere milk of the Word, remember Jesus said that my people perish from a LACK of knowledge.
I've enjoyed corresponding with you, have a Blessed night.
Growth require scriptures, no doubt 'bout that.
Question is, will there be ever a time on this earth, where every inhabitant will have access to either radio or tv or internet or newspaper or magazine or even a gathering of believers called a church?
I don't believe there will be a time on this planet where we will have 100% literacy. So there will be always be the tribes people or some remote village or people that will never learn to read.
Although there are gigantic ministries like joyce meyer, benny hinn and others that are in most countries...I don't think there is a ministry that is in every country.
I could be wrong there because technology has come so far I would not be shocked if a ministry was in every country. Getting it to every single human though I think is still challenging.
Radio to me is the best hope. you don't have to know how to read. However a tribe leader or village elder that is in the remote parts of the world, all the gospel needs is one person that comes in contact with that remote village or tribe to understand the gospel, even if they can't read. They have they own communication methods to have the people understand.
So there is still quite of work to do regarding Jesus' commandment and the great commission. Yrs I think before completion. But is the goal closer? definitely yes.
