What about the Pygmies in Africa?
“Far be it from You to do such a thing, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous and the wicked are treated alike. Far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth deal justly?” (Genesis 18:25)
Have you ever been challenged with the question, “What about the Pygmies in Africa? Do they go to Hell because they have never heard about Jesus?” This is a perplexing question when it’s really given some thought. The question springs out of our natural sense of justice. “Is it fair for God to send someone to Hell if they never had the opportunity to hear and receive the good news of Jesus?” There’s a lot of theological answers to this one but this is the answer I give. “God loves thosePygmies more than you or I ever could and I’m sure He will do the right thing by them.” Now the burden rests squarely on the justness of God and His character and not my interpretation of what’sfair. The bottom line: God always does the right thing and we can rest in that.
