This verse is enough to make me a pariah in modern culture. This is one of the great divides that has wedged its way into our understanding. We live in a world that says there are no absolutes, there is no truth. Our culture tells us that everything is relative and if we think differently we are intolerant and intolerance is the big sin of our age.
Jesus was exclusive. He did not believe there were many paths to eternal life. He believed there was one and it went through Him. This echoes through the Bible from the Shema,
(Deuteronomy 6:4 KJV) Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:To the words of Jesus,
(John 14:6 KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.So? It is hard to see and hear when we exist in a cacophony of pagan nonsense. Be aware that often that confusion exists in the church. Do your homework. The truth is available but your surroundings are working overtime to keep you from knowing what it is.
Grace and peace
