Does God judge people who have never heard about him?

If not, why spread the good news? It seems like the less we know, the better off we are. Ignorance is bliss. Does God care more about our actions or whether we believe he exists? If scientists discovered the truth about our origins what exactly would change? Wouldn't the world continue spinning the same as it always has? Why do people act as if we are gonna gain superpowers as soon as we learn about where we really come from. 

So you know more today than you did yesterday, this doesn't change the fact that bills are due and you need food. Just because you've gained a new friend doesn't mean that person is gonna help. Everyone has their own problems to deal with after all. Why rely on supernatural methods such as prayer to solve them? Mankind has be capable of survival long before anyone knew of God's existence. Why is it necessary to believe in him now?

    Yes. Romans 2:14-16.demonstrates that "Their conscience bearing witness" is the standard applied to the untaught.

    God has shown sufficient to all..

    Those that seek Him He will lead and they will find Him.

    Those who do not want Him and reject Him, deserve judgement, do they not?

    A big fat SO WHAT if you believe in God? Satan isn't an atheist. There's no agnostic demons. Judas saw miraculous provision, the dead raised, the blind given their sight... but like you, his god was money... and so he betrayed Jesus for a lousy 30 peices of silver: the high price with which he valued Him.

    God says everyone knows He exists, but just like you are doing here - you have chosen to dismiss the knowledge of Him as irrelevant.

    And so I bid you 'Good luck' with that.

    But in the meantime, who are you to pass comments about our sacred, God-ordained commission? This is like trying to stop a fireman from rescuing people from a burning building. You will be held to account for every careless word.

    And PS. If IGNORANCE of the gospel could save people, we'd be sending missionaries to build walls around towns: not to share the great news of how to be saved.

    To die without a Saviour is awful.

    Again. Good luck with that.

    Is there anyone who has not heard of God?  God who?  Christians have heard of God, and they have a bible.  They know that God said "thou shalt not kill."  Yet, they support wars, even wars that are not justified by facts (like the war in Iraq that has been raging for decades with no end in sight, and killed a million Iraqis, and made a torture camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba).  They know God doesn't want them to do things (it says in the bible), but they continue to defy God.  The bible says that we have an obligation to know the bible, if we know that it exists.  Perhaps knowing and defying is worse than not knowing at all?

    Nobody is saved by "not hearing".  The Lord will bring the truth to everybody that wants the truth.  Acts chapter 10 shows this.  Also the Gospel is everywhere.  Everybody is without excuse.  Here is the truth: The Lord Jesus Christ is God. Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, or not. The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell.

    Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ means being forgiven all sins past and future and means going to heaven. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing on Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven

    (1 Timothy 2:3, 4) "This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4 whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth."

    God is giving everyone an opportunity to come to know him and Jesus. That is the work that Jehovah's Witnesses do. (Matthew 28:19,20)

    Not harshly

    John 15:22 

    22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.

    People who have heard God’s teachings are held to a higher standard than those who have not.
