If you call yourself a Christian/Follower of Jesus, place yourself Under JESUS, and NO OTHER. In the Name of Jesus ALONE there is TRUTH, LIFE, and The Way to LASTING peace, AUTHENTIC reconciliation, and TRUE love. He ALONE has this power, NO other…
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
“It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth…12 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
And so, we should be careful with whom we come into INTIMATE contact, and who we allow to have SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY over us by any means…
“22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.” -1 Tim. 5:22
We should ALWAYS seek peace & reconciliation as often as possible, but not if it compromises the LORDSHIP and authority of Jesus and His Church…
“17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” -Romans 12:17-21
In America, we have been known to value solid and accurate debate. It used to be we valued it because each side would analyze the facts and then discuss an issue based on its merits. Then we would trust the outcome of a decision with the integrity of each side as the checks and balances of said debate. It appears integrity and facts aren’t as important as blind plurality these days. Unity of Christ’s Body, His Church, with other faiths is nothing more than powerless compromise and apostate rejection of the Cross and the resurrection of the dead. If “other faiths” can lead to salvation too, then we don’t need Jesus. He’s just the “nice” prophet, among many others…or is He?
Let’s keep it simple. Either follow Jesus or don’t. Either HE is enough for you or He’s NOT. I can respect your decision NOT to follow Jesus, but I CANNOT and I WILL NOT respect your politically driven efforts to dumb down the Person and Power of Jesus Christ, disguised in weak-willed “reconciliation”, which is more accurately appeasement to lies! Instead we ought to be taking every thought CAPTIVE unto Christ and DEMOLISHING arguments and pretensions that set themselves up against the knowledge of God! (2 Corinthians 10:2-5)
There isn’t “another way”…HE is THE WAY.
Either believe His Word, The Bible, or don’t. There’s no room for reinterpreting/reinventing “truth”, HE is THE TRUTH.
Either receive His resurrection life, or don’t. HE is LIFE everlasting! Jesus WAS, IS, and always WILL BE all we need for true life and salvation.
As C.S. Lewis observed, Jesus was either a LIAR, LUNATIC, or He is LORD of all. We all follow something or someone…WHO is YOUR Lord?
