From an article on the Huffington Post titled “6 Things Christians Should Just Stop Saying”:
3. Jesus is the only way to heaven.
What you are really saying is, "The way we interpret John 14:6 is that Jesus was clearly drawing a line in the sand and telling his hearers and the world: 'If you do not believe in Me, you won't go to the Father when you die'"….
There are scores of Christians, however, and I am one of them, who do not interpret Jesus' words in John 14 the same way. Just because I do not makes me no less Christian than you are. So stop drawing lines in the sand, please, between equally sincere followers of Jesus.
How would you graciously and clearly respond to this challenge from a friend? Explain your answer in the comments below, and Alan will post his video response on Thursday.
