Handling 5 of the BIGGEST Objections to Faith

Objection #5 – It doesn't really matter what you believe because all roads lead to heaven.

  • Tolerance has replaced truth as the highest virtue in our society.
  • Traditional tolerance meant something like this. – Love the sinner NOT the sin.
  • Tolerance today means that ALL individual beliefs, values, lifestyles and truth claims are equal in value.
  • Old Tolerance – This is a free country and although I think what you believe or practice is wrong, you have a right to practice it.
  • New Tolerance – You are a bigot if you do not say that what they believe and practice is just as legitimate as what you believe and practice.
2 Ways to Look at Truth...
  1. Truth is defined by God. It is objective and it is absolute.
  2. Truth is defined by the individual – it is subjective and it is situational.
The Question: Why do we think Christianity is the ONLY Right Religion?
  • Some of us still think the debate is between Campbell and Billy Graham...
  • The debate today is between Jesus and Mohammed.
John 14:6...these are the most politically incorrect words Jesus ever uttered!
  • Our culture is not anti-religion as much as it is anti any religion that claims it is better than another.
  • What you will hear today...Don't hold up your faith as something everyone ought to believe.
What about THIS...
  • Acts 4:12
  • 1 Timothy 2:5
  • 1 John 5:11-12
3 Unique Qualities about our Faith...

1. The Identity of its founder.
  • You cannot be a Christian and be unsure about the identity of Jesus.
  • He is either the Son of God or we are wasting our time.
2. The Necessity of his death.
  • If this religion is ok and that religion is ok, then why did Jesus had to die.
  • The problem with all other roads is that the bridges over the gulf of sin that they build are not trustworthy.
  • You cannot have a Christianity reconciled to other religions and keep the cross at the center of the gospel.
3. The Superiority of his access.
  • Hebrews 10:19-22
  • If it took the death of God's Son to open the road, how can we believe that other roads wind up in the same place?
