Can God Be Trusted

 

Isn't it Narrow-Minded to Say Jesus is the Only Way to God?

  

October 9, 2016

 


 

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

John 14:6 (NIV)

 

THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH

 

1. Many are misinformed about truth

 

2. The nature of truth is that all truth is exclusive

3. Denying that the nature of truth is exclusive is self defeating

 

 

 

WHAT'S THE BASIS FOR BELIEVING THAT JESUS' CLAIM IS TRUE?

 

 1. The resurrection has historical evidence

 

They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body od the Lord Jesus. ... "He is not here; He has risen!"

Luke 24:2-3, 6 (NIV)

  

2. All world religions do not have the same concept of God

Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding.

Proverbs 3:13 (NLT)

 

3. Life is not about being moral; it's about being alive to God  

"My purpose is to give life in all its fullness."

 John 10:10 (NLT)

 

4. All of us need forgiveness  

As the Scriptures say, "No one in all the world is innocent."

  Romans 3:10 (TLB)

 

5. God enters our world  

From one man He created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand which should rise and fall, and He determined their boundaries. His purpose in all of this was that the nations should seek after God and perhaps feel their way towrd Him and find Him - though He is not far from any one of us.

 Acts 17:26-27 (NLT)

 

From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see His invisible qualities- His eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.

Romans 1:20 (NLT)

 

 

HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THE TRUTH?

 

1. Respond to known truth

Jesus said to the poeple who believed in Him, "You are truly my sisciples if you keep obeying my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

 John 8:31-32 (NLT)

  

2. Die to yourself

Jesus said to all of them, "If people want to follow me, they must give up the things they want. They must be willing to give up their lives daily to follow me. Those who want to save their lives will give up true life. But those who give up their lives for me will have true life."

 Luke 9:23-24 (NCV)

 

3. Seek the Life-Giver

Jesus answered, "...The only way to the Father is through me." ..."Because I live, you will live, too."

John 14:6, 19 (NCV)
