I was talking to a young man recently who said he really was not into religion but thought it was wonderful that I was. He described a number of ways he tries to be spiritual, but concluded that in the end we all go to the same place anyway so it really did not matter what religion we followed, or even if we followed one at all, so long as we were satisfied with our lives. This young man is indicative of the prevailing opinion in our culture.
Our culture tells us that all spirituality is equal, that religions are the same. But Jesus said "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). There is only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus. That may sound narrow minded. It might sound old-fashioned. It might sound exclusive. But it is true. Let us go forth today unashamed of the Gospel and share the message of hope found in Jesus to anyone who will listen.
