In my last post, someone left a comment concerning other religions--Muslims, Hindus, etc. I don't know much about other religions, but I don't think we would agree on the divinity of Jesus and the authority of the Bible. I would not consider them my brothers and sisters and would not be commanded to be unified with them. The commenter asked if these other religions were wrong. Using the criteria of Jesus and the Bible I would have to say. . .(and I'm swallowing really hard right now--I hate to have anybody mad at me). . .yes, they are off the mark. The Bible is very clear about it in John 14:6, "Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"
But that being said, there are a few questions that linger in my mind. Does being confrontational and critical actually bring people to Christ? Will debating over their religion bring them to Jesus? Do you know many people who have been argued into heaven?
There's got to be a better way. Jesus attracted people by loving them. How do you think can we love those of completely different belief systems?
