One of the least popular teachings of Christian faith is the exclusivity of Christ. We, at least in the West, hate exclusivity. We’ve been taught that anything exclusive is wrong. Morally wrong.
But when it comes to the exclusivity of Jesus, one of the reasons people have trouble with this is because they misapply or over-apply the concept of exclusivity.
Jesus is exclusive – in that he is the only way to the Father (John 14:6).
But Jesus is inclusive – in that anyone hears his call can come.
This podcast suggests that when we set aside the exclusivity of Christ as the only means of salvation, we not only go against the teachings of Scripture, we rob ourselves of a day to day blessing — a helpful one.
