I recently made a website, Youtube, Facebook Fan Page, and Twitter for our church. We were WAY BEHIND times, haha. Our church has always been a ‘down home’ little hole in the wall-type of church where everyone grew up there, but we finally want to “get out there”… so we are dipping into cyber world to spread the word that there is a good church in our area that preaches Christ and Him Crucified!
We stay away from that watered down gospel that will pat you on the back and tell you that you are ok in your sin. We preach the whole truth: You are a sinner in need of a savior, Jesus IS that savior, He sanctifies and justifies through His death on the cross, and we teach how to live for Him after salvation takes place.
Anyway, I got a message this morning that our church twitter has a new follower. This follower is a “universal” teacher. He teaches that there are “bridges” that lead from all religions to God.
This made me angry!
There is only ONE WAY to God! And it’s through JESUS!
“I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE: No man comes unto the Father (GOD) EXCEPT THROUGH ME” – John 14:6
This man was speaking of helping people find peace ‘within themselves’ and building a ‘bridge’ to peace.
THERE IS NO PEACE WITHOUT JESUS!!!!!! That bridge IS JESUS!
Why do people not understand this?!?
Reading this made me angry/ I began to read…
and I stumbled upon this passage:
1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
