I admire Professor Mike Adams at UNCW.  He’s fearless in attacking the political correctness that is all through academia.  Today he examines the Scripture:  John 14:6 (“Jesus said to him [Thomas], ‘I am the way, and the truth and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by me.'”[RSV]) and he is right. 

Christianity is both an exclusive religion and an inclusive one.  All can come to Jesus.  The Bible is clear.  Revelation 7 describes the most diverse group you will ever see:

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude whihc no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb,…”  (Rev. 7:9 [RSV])

However, there is only one way to get in that group.  You must receive Christ as Lord and Savior.  That is standard Christian teaching.  I recognize that some are uncomfortable with that.  it sounds vaguely bigoted or discriminatory.  But it is as true as the map:  Only one way from Mechanicsville to New York City.

There will someday be a division in the Church and the false counterfeit church will emerge.  Revelation teaches it.  Most will join it.  Most will lose out on the benefits of a fellowship with God in this life and the next as well.

    Sadly, many in America (and the world) are working as hard as they can to deny the scriptures. I believe the false church is already here. They are called the Progressives.

    I have a few grievances with Christianity. I do not understand how one can follow a religion whose key text and scriptures are arbitrarily chosen. I’ve never had a Christian been able to tell me why Cannonical texts are superior and more morally justifiable as the “right” path than non-cannonical texts.

    I’ve never been able to get an explanation of why Byzantine edict from Constantine at Nicaea constitutes the basis for what is a religion.

    There are a lot of things in Christianity that I’ve found appealing (less in a literal way and more in a Thomas Jefferson sort of way), but I have never been able to fully understand the full faith given by Christians to arbitrary scriptures. Yes I, a non-Christian can find help and spirituality in a Christian text, but only because I truly believe the meaning and think what it says sums up my feelings or represents a good idea. But many Christians I talk to do not heed scriptures that way, but follow them because they are “correct”.

    When a religious texts are based on “correctness” (and that correctness being granted by Emperors and Officials that often had self-serving goals to pick and chose which texts are to be “correct”) and not on moral justification, then what is the justification for the religion?

    “Sadly, many in America (and the world) are working as hard as they can to deny the scriptures. I believe the false church is already here. They are called the Progressives.”

    Non-christian Conservatives exist Tom (I’m not one of them, but still.).

  3. I understood that the canon was decided not by a church council but the consensus of many people over many years who had to deal with the question: Is it the Word of God? Well before 315 AD the leaders of the church regarded the four Gospels, the Pauline letters and most of the other letters as canonial.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
