Why does God place some in Christian families to be raised with the Christian faith, while others He places in Hindu families to be raised in that religion? I'll tell you whyu. Some He chooses to bring others to bring to Christ. If He didn't explain the parables to the apostels, He wouldn't have anyone to "teach the foolish masses". But, as Judas Iscariot proved, some who have the straight forward word don't always believe it. I've known many people who were raised in a Christian family, with the straight-forward word, who have rejected it. The apostles didn't have any advantage over the foolish masses, other than the fact that Christ chose them to teach others.
