To ask a question
It has been mentioned by more than one person whom I consider wise that I am not open or clear about my position on salvation. And in regard to the post on which they have commented I have to agree with them. It is not that I am uncertain about my belief but more that I honestly want people to think.
I can tell someone what to think but that often fails to help them gain the goals I would have them obtain. Simply telling someone what to think falls short of the true goal of helping them understand why they should believe. Thinking is one of the greater tools we have yet it is very often ignored in our daily conversations and interactions.
Asking the right question or encouraging someone to ponder an idea can create greater interest and produce more understanding than simply saying, this is the way it is. And while it is true that I believe that there is only one way to reach the creator of Heaven and Earth I do not wish to insult others who feel that there may be another. So instead I ask questions, encouraging them to think and look at life and the truth that is surrounding them.
But for the record, there is only one Savior given to man that they might be saved, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is only through accepting His sacrifice and His forgiveness that we have access to the Heavenly Father, also known as God. I also believe that anyone who believes that there is more than one way to God, regardless of method, truly does not believe but merely hold an opinion. Belief is the position of having a stand, holding to a truth. And in the realm of faith holding to more than one Way is not faith but having a split mind.
I also, believe you have the right to believe what you desire to believe. It is just that many of the things we might choose to believe are not necessarily true. Many believe that God is not true, but only a crutch designed to support ignorance and control the masses. It is for that reason that I choose to ask questions hoping to open the eyes of those who might see and encourage learning or at least thought in those who are willing.
While there is but one way to heaven I believe there is more than one way to help people find it. So I ask that you not be offended by my questions but instead ponder the ideas they might offer.
