Jesus, the only way to be Saved from eternal damnation and separation from God.
Implicit in the above statement are a few things that I strongly believe, based on the testimony of the scriptures:
1. There is such a thing as eternal damnation and separation from God. Most people understand the place of this separation to be Hell. I believe that Hell is a real place and that people do go there. Jesus himself, spoke the most about Hell.
Jesus Himself said (Mark 9:43-48) ” If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one hand than to go into the unquenchable fires of hell with two hands. If your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one foot than to be thrown into hell with two feet. And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out. It’s better to enter the Kingdom of God with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell,‘where the maggots never die and the fire never goes out.“
2. WE need to be saved from this separation from God. Yes, we have all become separated from God through sin. Sin entered our world when the first man that was ever created chose to disobey God’s directions.
Romans 5:12 explains: “When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.”
3. Jesus Christ is the only, and I repeat ONLY person who offers salvation from the separation from God that we all deserve.
I have met people who claim to follow Christ, yet they believe in Universalism (both Universal reconciliation and also Unitarian Universalism) which either claim that all souls will eventually be reconciled to God (with or without the sinner submitting to the Lordship of Christ) or that all religions can equally reconcile the human soul to Christ.
I STATE CATEGORICALLY THAT THESE IDEOLOGIES ARE NOT BIBLICAL!!! The Word of God states, without ambiguity, that Jesus Christ is the ONLY MEANS by which human beings can be reconciled to God!
1 Timothy 2:5 states: For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity–the man Christ Jesus.
And again, 1 John 5:20 says: We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
And as a thought for meditation: John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
