The other day I happened to flip through a book of Christian theology.
I don’t do that real often.
But as I did this, my eyes spotted a few words that are currently heard in our society.
(Well the words aren’t necessarily heard, but the ideas behind these words are bantered and heard).
For example the words: universal reconciliation. This is a teaching that the death of Jesus restored everyone to God. This happens whether anyone has responded to Jesus because of his death.
Consequently, another word: universalism, which seems to be a spin off from the tolerance philosophy, offers eternal good will to everyone.
The talk about these words finally gets around to asking:
Is Jesus the only way to heaven?
As a result, every now and then, you’ll see a poll wanting you to pick an answer:
A) I’m not sure
D) Other (explain)
I have a question: why is it so difficult for people to believe that Jesus is the way to heaven?
