GUEST: Tim Barnett, Speaker/Apologist, Stand To Reason
There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name [Jesus] under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
There is no more resisted and yet important question than: “Is Jesus really the only way to God in heaven?”
The Bible explicitly states that Jesus is the only way. Here are just two examples:
Jesus said about Himself: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6).
John the Baptist said, “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).
There are many sincere, devout people all over the world who worship other gods or follow other spiritual paths, doing good works for their god and neighbor. Surely, these are not kept from heaven because they don’t have the right belief about Jesus Christ?
And what about those people who have never even heard of Jesus—how could a good God consign them to eternal torment?
This weekend on The Christian Worldview, Tim Barnett of the apologetics ministry Stand To Reason joins us to discuss the exclusivity of Christ in our pluralistic world, along with other apologetic questions.
NOTE: Tim is one of the speakers at the Lakes Free Church Worldview Apologetics Conference this weekend (March 1-2) in Lindstrom, MN. If you’d like to attend, view conference info here.
