Before Christ came into the world, there were the Jewish people who had always believed in their one God and other peoples who did not know God or believed in other gods and idols. I know that since God can see what's in our heart, he must have judged each one of those souls justly. Nevertheless, I feel blessed that I came into the world after Christ. Now, I know all about God, his love, and how to get saved. Of course, we'll still be judged by our heart.
