It depends on what you mean by "heard".
Some people have ears, but never hear. Just not interested.
Others are interested. It is more a matter of conscience. And so they "hear" the message, though not with earthly ears.
The message of Jesus is to love God and one another. Those who hear and do it, are doing what God demonstrates for us by His Actual Presence, Jesus Christ.
I consider myself among the blessed(happy), and fortunate to have heard with earthly ears.
I mean people who have no knowledge of jesus,the bible or TV evangelists,nothing. You may think that they are few and far between,but the fact is there are millions of them. If the belief in jesus is a matter of life and eternal life you would think an all powerful god would have a better method of getting his word across. Maybe he should hire a PR guru.
