Jesus is the Way

According to poll results posted in the September 5, 2005, issue of Newsweek, 68% of “Evangelical Protestants” believe that “a good person who doesn’t share [their] religious beliefs [can] attain salvation or go to heaven” (p. 49).
Apparently, 68% of those describing themselves as “Evangelical Protestants” are confessed Bible-rejecting wolves in sheeps clothing who would teach contrary to the Protestant Bible’s affirmations of salvation by grace through faith alone in Christ alone according to the Bible alone.

This is not surprising according to Christ’s emphatic statement that “straight is the gate, and narrow is teh way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:14).

Christ’s teaching flies in the face of ecumenism or “all paths lead to God” or pretty much any popular religious teachings. There are 1 billion+ Roman Catholics. Is that a few? Doubtful. Theirs is not the way of life. There are millions of Protestants. is that a few? Hardly. Being a church member is not the way of life.

The way of life is so incredibly simple, yet it is confounded by so many. Simple faith in the gospel. The door is open, but so few are looking for it.
