>>I wonder how "sola scripture" works with a population that is largely illiterate? Not that everyone in Africa, Latin America and Asia can't read I am guessing that a fairly large percentage would be.<<
I certainly hope you're not suggesting that the soveriegn Lord of All Creation, the Creator and Sustainer of the entire Universe can be hampered by how well someone can read?
If He means for someone to come to salvation and know His Word, He will see it acomplished, regardless of whatever mental, physical, or geographical state the person is in.

**If He means for someone to come to salvation and know His Word, He will see it acomplished, regardless of whatever mental, physical, or geographical state the person is in.**
I know a sweet little 9 year old autistic boy. His mother was talking about how everyone is in sin. She described it as everyone is real bad in God's eyes.
He looked at her and said "everybody? Even me?" She said "yes honey, even you."
His eyes got real big and he screamed out "I'm in trouble!" No God loves everybody, no God has a wonderful plan for your life, just the truth: we are all lost.
A message so clear even this little boy could understand his need for a savior.
