Post #11: Jesus is The Way, not “a way”
by Donald Borsch Jr.
Jesus says of Himself: “I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one comes to My Father but through Me.”
So Jesus says He is The Way. The Truth. The Life. If we believe we have any of these things outside of Jesus, we are deluding ourselves.
Also, make note that Jesus did not say there is a way to His Father through works, desire, or good intentions. You see, thinking that all one must do is live like Jesus and you get into Heaven is not what He said. But this is what is preached among the progressive and evolving American churches of today.
These churches have doctrines that say you must simply live like Jesus did, or at least give it your best shot, and that is what you will be judged upon. They try to make Jesus into a way, stripping Jesus of His Sovereignty and Deity. In this lie, they have played upon man’s ingrained desire to do something for the sake of giving the impression of Jesus, but deny Him altogether through true covenant.
How tragic it will be, how heart-breaking and horrifying it will be, when they are face-to-face with Jesus and He says that He never knew them.
My Lord, my God…please extend Your Grace and Mercy as only You can, and show these blind sheep they are following after a wolf.
