One Way To God?

On Sunday, I preached on Jesus as the only way to God. This claim typically helps to get Christians labeled as intolerant and exclusive. So, a key part of my message had to with why Jesus as the only way is the most inclusive message you've ever heard. Here are three reasons...
  • Because instead of everyone trying to save themselves by their works, Jesus saves as a free gift (Rom 10:13; Matt 11:28).
  • Because many religions are only concerned with their own people, but Jesus invites all people to come to him (Rev 5:9).
  • Because Jesus calls for love to be shown to those who reject his message (Matt. 5:44).
Check out the message here. For more on this topic and other difficult questions of the Christian faith, check out Tim Keller's The Reason for God.
