One Religion or Many

Religious pluralism has determined that God reveals himself through all religions and Christianity has the most thorough revelation of God. Religious pluralists believe that God can be found in all religions, Buddhism, Bai’ hai’, Islam, Hindu, etc. The revelation of God in one religion may be about peace and contentment as one exists in this world. It could be about love for mankind. It might be any number of values that resemble teachings and characteristics of God.

There may be discovery of some of these aspects about God’s way in other religions, but that does not mean that God provided a revelation about himself in that religion. There can be similarities. There are similarities among the species but that does not necessarily  make one specie a form of the other. Discovering some of these aspects in other religions form a common ground however by which the Christian can show them God for real.

God’s plan did not and still does not involve revelation through other religions. “”Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God” @Romans 10:17. “How shall they call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” @Romans 10:14

God’s revelation of himself to the world involves the preaching of his word. And his word is contained, not in a multitude of religious traditions, but in the Bible that Christians preach from. History has proven the Bible to be the final revelation of that God has given and the that it is totally true and reliable.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the way to God will be preached as much or more this weekend as we remember the anniversary of Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is the word, preached from the Bible which reveals God to mankind. That’s God’s choice. That is God’s way!

It’s Been a Couple of Weeks

Man, summer is busy.  Holidays, special events, camps, mowing, mowing, and more mowing and then we lost the use of the internet at home for a while.  I love summer!

Below is a link to an article in Relevant Magazine.  If you are a Christian, you should act on what the article’s writer Lorae French writes.
