Yep. Your bias.My bias? No, your bias. Your post #73, the one I was relying to, said:
Pity you don't actually bother reading.
No bias on my end. Simply what the bible says.
It's been there for at least 1930 years.
So, where have you been?
Heb 11:6 WEB Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him.
It's pretty clear in Romans 1, Psalm 19, and Romans 2.How could the Native Americans believe in the Christian God before the arrival of the first Christian missionaries?
God has explicitly made it clear that everyone who wants to know can know.
You should take the time to read the bible for the purpose of understanding.
See above.How could the Australian Aborigines believe in the Christian God before the arrival of the first Christian missionaries?
Not me. The bible is quite clear about this.You are the one setting boundaries for your God.
This however would require you to learn.
Nope.You are saying that for thousands of years, millions of people were barred from pleasing your God because Christian missionaries had not reached them yet.
Rom 2:11-16 WEB 11 For there is no partiality with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without the law will also perish without the law. As many as have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 13 For it isn’t the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be justified 14 (for when Gentiles who don’t have the law do by nature the things of the law, these, not having the law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience testifying with them, and their thoughts among themselves accusing or else excusing them) 16 in the day when God will judge the secrets of men, according to my Good News, by Jesus Christ.
Rom 1:19-21 WEB 19 because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them. 20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. 21 Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened.
Psa 19:1-4 WEB 1 The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork. 2 Day after day they pour out speech, and night after night they display knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their voice has gone out through all the earth, their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,
God has explicitly stated that he has opened up the door to all who believe him.
No need to rephrase.Or would you care to rephrase more clearly?
I do however see that your biases are blinding you.
