you Christians so arrogant, that you think you’re the only ones
going to heaven and that we’re
all going to hell?”
We live in a world that now values the tolerance of all things above God’s truth – where ALL opinions are considered valid and where there is no absolute truth anymore. We have to tolerate everybody’s ideas about religion.
Now, in response to his desert temptations, Jesus chose to quote the scriptures, thereby magnifying God’s truth above his own name and opinions (Psalm 138:2). We shall do likewise.
If you agree that Jesus was a good man (at the very least), and good men never lie, he therefore must have been telling the truth when he said “… I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
But you do see, that with this one statement, Jesus showed an absolute intolerance, and so called arrogance, of all other faiths, religions and beliefs. If Jesus were to walk on the earth today, he would definitely be called intolerant and arrogant.
Now, it is understandable that non-Christians may misinterpret the Christians’ exclusive and sure belief of a home in heaven, as arrogance, however as we would therefore urge the unsaved reader to “… Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved …” (Acts 16:31), that you too, may also have the same assurance of your home in heaven.
For as the scriptures say “Neither is there salvation in any other (Jesus): for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
WILL I GO TO
HOW CAN I KNOW FOR SURE THAT I WILL GO TO HEAVEN WHEN I DIE?
