    1. are some sins more damable and make it harder for some to believe the gospel to be saved? for instance some countrys and locations have less converts how do you explain this?

    2. those who havent heard the gospel what is the reason for that?

    3. is it unfair that God commands man, to do, that which he is morally incapable of ?

    John 12:32 God supernaturally DRAWS ALL mankind to Himself.

    John 16:8-11 God CONVICTS THE WORLD of sin and righteousness and jugment.

    Romans 2 describes the Gentile - without scripture who "does INSTINCTIVELY the things of the Law SHOWING the Law WRITTEN on his heart" and in vs 26 we find that gentile accounted as one who HAS scripture a "spiritual Jew" who is circumcised in the heart.

    Romans 4:1-11 - Abram is given as the "ultimate Gentile" who believes though he has no scripture and is uncircumcised. (Note vs 10-11)

    God is "the world-wide evangelist" -- the saints in ministry merely serve at His direction and the lack of a saint in a given area does not inhibit the work of the Holy Spirit who "IS not willing that ANY should perish but that ALL should come to repentance".

    In Christ,

    Bob

    1) Cultural traditions make it more difficult - definitely - but its still easier then being flogged and then crucified

    2) COmmon grace - or prevenient grace is sufficient unto salvation - although it may not be effacious

    3) No, Enoch
