Jesus Isn’t the Only Way? Aug 03 by Sam Guzman
The Episcopal church has long been toeing the line of apostasy, and in several cases, has outright crossed it. Now some liberal Episcopalians are downright denying that Jesus is the only way, twisting the definition of grace to mean that God accepts the whole world, regardless of what individuals believe about Jesus. How tragic it is when the exclusive nature of salvation through Christ alone is denied to uproarious applause. Thank God that he always has a remnant, in this case, conservative Episcopalians who are sickened by this.
Robert Schuler made a career at teaching the heresy that Jesus is not/may not be the only way to Heaven. Billy Graham said he dogmatically taught that Jesus was the only way when he was younger but now he thinks only God knows and would have to decide (my paraphrase). The Emerging Church vehemently denies the Bible can even be understood much less believed. Joel Osteen and Rick Warren (and others) twist the truth until there is just feel-good mishmash and no truth.
There are some letters to some churches in the Revelation. It would serve us well to read them occasionally. Our preacher spoke about the sovereignty of God two weeks ago. He used, imagine this, the Bible as his source. People applauded at the conclusion of the sermon. When is the last time you heard a sermon that warranted applause?
The Bible is very direct about this subject. Jesus is THE way and the ONLY way. It is not veiled, subjective, or implied. There is no getting around this fact unless you deny the word of God. Why is this so difficult?
