There Is Only One Way: Is
That Too Narrow-Minded?
"Nor is there salvation in any
other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we
must be saved." Acts 4:12
Christian leaders who appear on secular television talk shows are often
asked whether they believe Jesus is the only way to heaven. If the answer is
Yes, Jesus is the only way, the interviewer often paints the Christian as
intolerant, arrogant, narrow-minded, out-dated, and fanatical.
But if the interviewer were talking to a physician who had made a medical
breakthrough for a terrible disease, would he say, "Doctor, how intolerant
to think this is the only cure for this disease?"
If he were talking to a mathematician about the multiplication table, would
he say, "Professor, how can you be so arrogant as to believe that three
times three always equals nine?"
By its very nature, truth is narrow, precise, and factual. Jesus said, "I am
the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through
Me" (John 14:6). In this day of pluralism and political correctness, it's
important to know that Christ is still the only one who can save from sin.
Do you think God would have given His own Son, the Lord Jesus, to suffer and
die for our sins, pay our debt in full,
be buried, rise again
and be seen by hundreds if there had there been
some other way?
God help us if we preach anything else but the gospel of Jesus and Him alone
Trust in Christ alone, and trust Him today.
