Isn’t this an enlightened position as opposed to the antiquated and dogmatic position of Christians being exclusive?


Relativism

The new Anti-values Value

Ultimate Conclusion?

All beliefs are equally worthless


There are no Absolute Truths


Appeal of Multi Road Logic

Instead of us being made in God’s image, people want God made in their image.


Appeal of Multi Road Logic

  • Don’t want or need a savior

  • Don’t want or need objective historical relevance

  • Don’t want or need objective standards

  • Don’t want or need any form of accountability

  • Don’t want or need any form of leadership or learning

  • Instead, you get to choose what you want, what makes you feel good.


Ravi Zacharias

“It is rationally impossible to sustain truth without excluding falsehood. All religions are exclusive.”


We are intended to

See through the eye, with the conscience.

Instead, we are being taught to

See with the eye, devoid of the conscience.

Accept what you want.

Don’t really think about it.


Buddhism Meditation

“she imagines herself sitting by a waterfall, dribbling her thoughts onto floating leaves that get carried downstream.”


Proverbs 14:15

“The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.”


Buddhism Meditation

“Accepting even hard truths can bring peace. People who practice mindfulness learn to discern the difference between pain, which is inevitable, and suffering, which is what we tend to add.”


Romans 8:17

“and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him.”


Elizabeth Lesser

“In our times it seems best described as ‘21st-Century Spirituality.’ It contains the nature-centered traditions of the original peoples of the Americas. It is part science, which has underscored, for most of the 20th century, our unspoken collective philosophy. It respects both a mistrust of heavy-handed authority, and the willing surrender to a greater power. It draws from the religious teachings of the past: the biblical traditions, the spiritual roots of Africa, the meditative schools of Asia, and other diverse mythic and religious worldviews. And it draws from our own times, from the wisdom of psychology, democracy and feminism.”


All Roads Lead to Heaven

There is no effort to resolve the drastic differences. Those are ignored.


Elizabeth Lesser

(Reading from Ravi Zacharias Book, pg 48-48)

“The truth is constantly changing to accommodate your growth”


@ Sleepy Dog(my other office)

“What I believe is that whatever a person believes is truth for that person. It is absolute truth for that person. Who am I to tell them different? My problem is when a person’s truth starts to effect the people around them. That I have a problem with!”


All Roads lead to heaven

As long as a person is sincere,

it is truth to them.

Thus sufficient to get to heaven


Proverbs 16:25

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.”


All Roads lead to heaven

The arrogance of man on this debate is shown clearly

Man cannot create a single ant.

Yet he thinks he can create gods by the dozens, hundreds and thousands


Heaven?


We did not invent the idea of Jesus being the only way


Jesus said:

John 14:6

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”


Apostle Peter said:

Acts 4:12

“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”


Apostle Paul said:

1 Timothy 2:5-6

“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.”


Jesus said:

John 14:6

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”


Strife

Denominational


All roads lead to heaven?

Why can’t God simply forgive and accept everyone?


Only one Road needed

It’s available to all

If I don’t receive His forgiveness and payment

Then that’s on me.
