Gundry on The Unevangelized

Robert Gundry has written an article on the gospel and the fate of the unevangelized in the most recent issue of Themelios. Gundry is professor emeritus and scholar-in-residence at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. Themelios is an “international evangelical theological journal that expounds and defends the historic Christian faith. Its primary audience is theological students and pastors, though scholars read it as well.”

“This essay represents a compact, biblical restatement of the urgency and necessity of the call to proclaim the gospel to all the nations so that people may believe in Jesus Christ and be saved.”

Here is Gundry’s opening paragraph:

“Lately there has come out of cold storage a question that has been hibernating among conservative evangelicals for some time. That question has to do with the status of people who live and die without ever hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Will God consign them to everlasting punishment? If so, where is his sense of fair play—they never had a chance—let alone his love for them? If not, through what means and at what time does he give them opportunity to be saved?”
