So, if Jesus isn’t the Way, or if He isn’t the only Way, what are the alternatives? Jesus, in the Garden of Gethsemane , praying, sweating, and full of anguish, pleads with the Father. The plea? To find an alternative… if there is any other way. Those who reject Jesus are without hope – there is no other way. This is our message.
John 18:37 … Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”
Romans 8:8-9 Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.
9You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.
