There are various places in the Bible where God teaches if someone searches for Him, He will reveal Himself - ie. He has obligated Himself to bring them the Gospel, so it does not matter their background. Their conscience and creation reveals there is a God/Creator - and if they truly search for Him He will reveal Himself to them.
Jerry, May I point out something to you? The whole purpose of the coming of Jesus was to save that which was lost.

Now, in order to do that, all had to be lost, otherwise, why come if mankind could save self?
