â€œI am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.â€ – John 14:6
Was Jesus Christ a closed-minded, egocentric, intolerant man? After all, He said, â€œI am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.â€ Was He narrow-minded like some we see in our world today, with perverted theological and ideological beliefs?
The world is motivated by hate – He by sacrificial love. He gave His life for us. Was He telling the truth – that He is the truth? Truth by definition means a contradictory statement is false. Either Heâ€™s who He says He is, or He’s a liar – but not both. The only way to God and eternal life? How narrow! How exclusive and judgmental of others with different beliefs!
So what is He? Egocentric? Narrow-minded? Or the God who loves us and tells the truth? I believe Heâ€™s God. I believe Heâ€™s truth because of what He did for you and me – sacrificing His life for us and rising from the dead to prove He is God.
What do you believe? He’s either one or the other. He canâ€™t be both.
