Are the Jewish, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, New Agers, and Non-Religious 'Unreached?'

unreached_points_worldAccording to the Joshua Project, the world has 7,000+ unreached people groups. ‘Unreached,’ according to them, are groups that “lack enough followers of Christ and resources to evangelize their own people.”

Is it right for Christian mission organizations to classify the Jewish, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Buddhist, the New Ager, and the self-proclaimed Non-Religious as ‘unreached?’

    Depends. Maybe a story helps. Heard of a Vietnamese woman living in Chicago for 40 years. Now in her 80’s. Never learned English. Rarely related to anyone outside of a small circle of other Vietnamese. Evngelistic team came to the community from a nearby church, brought a translater with them. Long story shortened. She had never heard of the name of Jesus Christ.

    Unreached person in an unreached people group? Indictment against the churches in the neighborhood? Both?

    Some Muslims and Hindus and Buddhist I’m sure are “unreached” according to the definition given, but New Agers? I’m not so sure. I don’t think you can be a New Ager without reacting against monotheism and specifically Christianity.
