An Answer to this question on Quora: Will Africans who lived before the doctrine about Jesus Christ be perished for not knowing the truth to be saved at the end of the world?
If you talk about ‘religions’ it’s a bit broad. Be specific with your question. You sound blasphemy in your words combinations. You can’t mix religion with eschatology. But you can ask or talk about eschatology if you can flow in anthropology.
Now, let me offer you a little help in reducing the confusions in the foundations or structure of your formation. Africans were the first to receive the doctrine about Jesus Christ but unfortunately, as the Ethiopian eunuch brought it to Africa through the instrumentallity of Cornelius, Africans rejected this great privilege. To add to this, superstitions at that time was in its highest level in Africa whivh greatly might have affected or distorted their acceptance of the holy truth the eunuch possessed.
To be even more specific, Africa could have received Christology before the Europeans. But then, as Peter went to Rome, they embraced the truth, grew in it and spread it across including Africa as they came in the name of missionaries and INDEED spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.
So, definitely the early Africans will be judged for not receiving the truth and believing in lies. Off course there are many things we have to realise here; the holy bible is not a story book! It’s a true life event whivh happened periodically to a world of people in that age.
Jesus Christ is coming soon. And he will have mercy upon who he will. Woe unto any man who judges his or her fellow brother or sister. The Lord God Almighty is our judge.
As DANIEL means, the Lord is my judge.
