How many times have you been told, “now, don’t take this personally, but…”? Well, I want you to take this personally: Jesus is THE ONLY WAY to God.
The postmodern ear may bristle at that, but that doesn’t make it any less true.
Jesus, Himself said that. Not me. Not anyone else. JESUS.
“No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
Either you believe that or you reject it. There is no riding the fence. John Duncan called this argument, “inexorable” (meaning unbending, unyielding, & unstoppable). It is black or white, one way or the other, but it can never be both or neither.
For a much more eloquent argument, look up C.S. Lewis’s “Lunatic, Liar, or Lord” trilemma in Mere Christianity.
Exclusive claim? Oh Yes. The claim is indeed, exclusive,but the invitation to accept it is 100% inclusive and universal (Gal. 3:28)!
So, please take this personally! In fact, it doesn’t get any more personal!
How do YOU answer the very same question that Jesus asked His disciples: Who do YOU say I am? (Matt. 16:15)
