John.20There is no record that he instructed them to write anything. It is obvious that, from the very beginning of the gospel proclamation, our Lord presented it in a way that did not require the ability to read. Thus, from the very beginning, the proclamation was exclusively oral. This is the beginning of "preaching" according to which a person orally expounds the gospel. A good example of this activity is that of Philip and his testimony to the Ethiopian Eunuch. They had the OT Prophets and the Torah and the Psalms written on scrolls, which the Eunuch was reading as he rode along. There was no written gospel, no "gospel tract" that Philip could hand him, so he got into the carriage with him and orally gave his testimony. This man was literate, but it did not help him to become acquainted with Jesus, whose gospel was not yet recorded.
 As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.
Mark.13The question of what happens after death to people who never hear the gospel, or read it, is not a new one. It existed when Jesus came into the world, and when he left it. The fact is that relatively few people, literate or illiterate, have yet heard the gospel.
 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
I am sure God will not say "ok "Tim" you have to go to hellFrom the Lord I have learned that a "good person, man or woman" in any age and time -- that is, a person sensitive to wrongdoing who is sorry for her or his misdeeds (sins) and who confesses them, and who forgives others who have offended her or him, will be forgiven and will be received into the Father's house as . . . a servant. But our Father is not looking for servants, though in his mercy he accepts them. He did not send his Son to earth to suffer and recruit servants. He has from the very beginning of creation wanted only one thing of it, which is that it produce sons and daughters! He sent Jesus to earth to gather his sons and daughters as the Good Shepherd gathers the sheep into his Little Flock, and lead them back to the Father's house.
because you did not read the Bible.
