Hope Amidst Competing World Views
Jesus Christ is not one god among many – He is the only God.
Jesus Christ is not one kernel of divine truth – He is the only truth.
Jesus Christ is not one path to heaven among many – He is the only path.
John 13:36-38 (NASB)
36Simon Peter *said to Him, “Lord, where are You going?” Jesus answered, “Where I go, you cannot follow Me now; but you will follow later.”37Peter *said to Him, “Lord, why can I not follow You right now? I will lay down my life for You.”38Jesus *answered, “Will you lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly, I say to you, a rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.
John 14:1-6 (NASB)
1“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.2“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.3“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.4“And you know the way where I am going.”5Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?”6Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
