Is the Answer Jesus Christ?

Yes, I believe whole heartedly that the Lord Jesus Christ, is the answer to every need, in fact, He is the Only Answer.

 

Am I an intolerant Christian?

 

Yes, plain and simple, I am intolerant.  Some people ask, how can you call yourself a Christian and be intolerant?  Didn’t Christ love all?  Yes, Christ loved all.  The Bible tells us that God wants no one to perish.  He loves all so much that He sent His Son to die for our sins.  (See our Good Person page to learn about sin).

 

2 Peter 3:9-11 - The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.  3:11 [Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness, 

 

 

In John Chapter 3:16-18 we read:

16.  For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  17. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  18.  He that believes in Him is not condemned, but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

Most people never go beyond verse 16 but here we see that if you don’t believe in the name of the Son you are condemned already.

 

The Bible also tells us that Jesus is the only way to heaven.  In John 14:6, Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father but by me”.  And the Apostle Peter said, "It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead . . . Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:10-12).

 

Pretty clear to me…I don’t find these passages in the Bible at all confusing.

 

Not long ago, tolerance was defined as "bearing or putting up with someone or something not especially liked." However, now the word has been redefined to "all values, all beliefs, all lifestyles, all truth claims are equal." Denying this makes a person "intolerant," and thus worthy of contempt.  Where does this leave Christians? The new definition of "tolerance" makes the Christian claims to exclusivity "intolerant", which supposedly justifies much of the anti-Christianity in the media and the education system.  But this argument is glaringly illogical and self-refuting. That is, if these "tolerance" advocates reject Christianity, then they are not treating this belief as "equal". So, in practice, to paraphrase George Orwell in Animal Farm, all beliefs are equal, but some beliefs are more equal than others. The result is extreme intolerance towards Christianity from people who talk so much about tolerating all views. In short, they are intolerant of intolerance, so logically they should be intolerant of themselves!

But what about the thought that people of other religions may believe the same thing as Christians but they just have a different name for them?  In other words, perhaps Muhammed and Jesus were the same person or Allah and God are the same….just different names?

No Christian should interpret "I am the way" to mean that Christ is only one of many ways to God.  To do so would be a complete denial of the doctrine of Christ. Nor can His statement, "I am the truth," be interpreted to mean that He is only part of the truth and that the truth can also be found in the Koran, the book of Mormon, and/or other such documents.

Unfortunately today it is no longer Christ and His Word alone, but now Freud, Eckart Tolle, the Dali Lama, and many more are also legitimate sources of "God's truth." There is no reason, then, why Mary Baker Eddy, Buddha, the Hindu Vedas, etc. may not also be accepted as sources of "God's truth." This heresy is so persistent that I felt I must address it on the first page of this website.  Truly, the answer, the only answer, the only truth, is Christ Jesus.

The world asks Christians; Can't we "just love people" and "accept them" for who they are? In fact it is because we love them that we point out their error and seek to correct them. Our Lord said, "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent" (Rev 3:19). Love is not a mushy acceptance of false teachers. John writes, "This is love, that we walk after his commandments" (2 John 6), and that involves standing firm for the doctrine of Christ. The whole purpose of Christ's coming was not to "accept us as we were" but to rescue us from what we were and to change us into what He wanted us to become. If Christ is truly dwelling in us, then we will want to do the same for those to whom we "[speak] the truth in love" (Eph 4:15).

Why do some call themselves “Christians” and yet deny the Bible as the truth?  To me this is what it all boils down to; one either accepts the Holy Bible as the inspired, inerrant truth of God or you don’t.  There are only two choices to make.  Which one will you accept?

“How long halt ye between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.” (1 Kings 18:21)

 

Baal is a title meaning "master" or "lord" that is used for various gods. "Baal" can refer to any god; Biblical uses of "Baal" refer to any number of local spirit-deities worshipped as cult images, each called baal and regarded by the writers of the Hebrew Bible in that context as a false god.  Merriam Webster defines Baal as any of numerous Canaanite and Phoenician local deities. Therefore there is the True God of the Holy Bible or there are False Gods.  Which do you follow?  Did you know that in reality if we create in our imaginations a God that is different than God as described in scripture then we are practicing idolatry.  It is very important for us to study God’s Word.  In fact we should earnestly desire to know more about Him and want to study His Word.

 

Just the other day I had an opportunity to share the gospel with a woman at a local church.  I had presented three of the ten commandments to her and asked her if God were to judge her by just 3 of the 10 commandments would she be innocent or guilty?  She avoided answering that question (she seemed very uncomfortable with this) and instead informed me that her view of God might be different than my view of God.  Her comment let me know that she has most likely fallen prey to the very prevalent misconception that all truth is God’s truth; that there are other sources of truth, perhaps even trusting in her own opinion without basing that opinion on the only truth there is, God’s Word Alone.  Perhaps she has created a God in her own imagination and if so, and this god is not the God of scripture then she is practicing idolatry.  Again, do you really believe the Bible or not?  Do you really believe the answer is Jesus Christ or not?  Why call yourself a Christian if you do not believe that the Holy Bible is really the Word of God?

“How long halt ye between two opinions? If the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.” (1 Kings 18:21)

More than 90 percent of Americans claim to believe in God. About 80 percent call themselves Christians. But when asked to define God, the answers range from “Mother Earth” to a “higher power.” Where do they get this stuff?  Obviously they’ve produced a god of their own imaginations.  Even many who claim to be born again deny that Jesus Christ is the “only way to God.” About 70 percent of Americans, 64 percent who call themselves born again, and 40 percent of self-proclaimed evangelicals reject the idea of absolute truth. And most of those who claim to believe in absolutes have fallen victims to a universal reluctance to speak the truth.

Jesus said “I am the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life; no man comes to the Father but by me”

Jesus Christ is the only way to God.  He claims to be the Son of God and also He is God.  Either you accept the Bible or you don’t. 

Jesus Christ is indeed the Answer……..and the only answer.
