Subject: What about the billions who have never heard about Jesus :-)
Ok, here’s my two bob’s worth from this morning’s chat. Also looking at the total number who have passed on to eternity since Adam.
Average Ages at present when it comes to mortality:
Australia 82 years Europe 80
North America 78 years South America 74
China 75 years Indonesia 70 India 67 Russia 66 Africa 57
Currently in 2018, there are about 7½ billion people alive. Click here for a sortable list by country.
Jesus said, "Remember the Queen of Sheba", and Solomon’s writing proverbs about the Lord.
Because the most important thing in every individual's life, who is genuinely searching in their heart for God, is to meet up with Jesus, God's arm is not so short that he can't at the right point, like the Queen of Sheba, draw any one seeker thousands of kilometres to meet up with a pre-ordained "Paul" (a father figure), a missionary, a mentor, who will birth them in the gospel. Then they return with rejoicing . Ever since the Day of Pentecost, 2000 years ago.
How beautiful are the feet, etc, etc of these people.
And, also remember Jesus's words "If they — the current 'preachers' in each local place, the local 'cosmos' — have called the master of the house Beelzebub — master of corruption, flies and stuff — how much more shall they call them of his household". Yes, until the day Jesus returns.
That's the Principalities and Powers and delusions principle. But, "more there be with us (angels), than be with them".
In the past century there has been an explosion in population growth. Previously it had been slowed due to a high infant mortality rate in Asia Middle East and Africa where 75% of the world's population currently live, click here for recent stats since 1950, also of course issues like famines wars and diseases — click here for stats re the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918-1919, the last serious world wide epidemic.
Ok, here are those numbers on mortality going back to Adam. Approximately
Click here for some corroboration in Worldometer's statistics.
2000-2018 1 billion (150,000 per day) or 55 million per year Average population size was 6.9 billion
1900-2000 5 billion (140,000 per day) or 50 million per year Average population size 3 billion
1800-1900 2 billion (55,000 per day) or 20 million per year Average population 1.3 billion
1700-1800 1 billion (27,000 per day) or 10 million per year Average population 800 million
700AD-1700AD 5 billion (14,000 per day) or 5 million per year over one thousand years, Average population 350 million
300BC-700AD 2½ billion (7,000 per day) or 2½ million per year over one thousand years, Average population 180 million
1300BC-300BC 700 million (2,000 per day) or 700,000 per year over one thousand years, Average population 50 million
Adam-1300BC 300 million which includes the wipe-out of, say, 20 million descendants of Adam at the flood in 2300BC
Total, say, 17½ billion humans have passed on to eternity since Adam was created.
