Only One Way to Heaven?
There may be no part of Christianity that is more offensive to people, both today and throughout history, than the Christian conviction that only faith in Jesus will get you to heaven. Jesus made this clear in John 14:6, when he said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” The disciples echoed his words when they said, “There is no name under heaven or on earth by which people can be saved, other than that of Christ Jesus.”
Changing Church, Changing World
I need to start by tipping my hat to Dr. Tim Keller as I write this blog entry. He has been my intellectual mentor for years, not that I know him personally. He has been writing his blog about the unique challenges and opportunities for the Christian church in the next generation. I don’t know many Christian leaders who, in their 60s, have so accurately put their finger on the issues of the day.
