Lets take a look for a moment at a tribe in the farthest reaches of the rainforest. There are still people to this day who have not been influenced by outsiders, who have not been exposed in any way to the gospel. What’s interesting to note is these same tribes that have not heard the gospel all believe in a god of some sort. They worship gods in the form of creatures or humans and often erect statues to worship. Is it coincidence that all mankind has a desire to worship a deity? God is at the very core of humanity and our subconscious knows what our conscious often denies; that there is a Creator.
All cultures worship God in one shape or form, unfortunately most do not know God or his son Jesus Christ.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
For since the creation of the world His attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man – and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Romans 1:18-23

We are exposed to God daily. Every time we look in the mirror, or gaze upon the face of a child we are seeing His handy work. Every sunset and sunrise we see was, created by Him for us. Only a Creator could design an environment that is so delicately balanced, that the slightest change could eliminate all life on earth.

There is a Creator, and everyone throughout the world knows Him, whether they accept Him as God or not. Mankind searches for God in all cultures, because we are all seeking to fill the hole in our souls that can only be filled by Him.

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
- Jesus (John 14:6)
