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.
