What happens to the remote people/tribes of the world who have never heard of a book let alone the Bible? Do they go to heaven or hell?

According to Christian theology, salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ. But what happens to those who have never had the opportunity to hear about Jesus or the Bible? The answer to this question is not a simple one.

Some Christians believe that those who have never heard of Jesus will be judged according to their own conscience and actions. In other words, if they have lived a good and moral life according to their own understanding, they may be saved.

Others believe that God will reveal himself to those who have never heard of him, either through a direct revelation or through the actions of his followers. There are even some who believe that all people, regardless of their beliefs, will ultimately be saved by God's mercy and love.

Ultimately, the question of what happens to those who have never heard of the Bible is one that we may never fully understand. But what is clear is that God is a just and loving God who desires to save all people, and that we are called to share the message of his love and salvation with everyone we meet.
