There is a group page on Facebook entitled, Christians Tired of Being Misrepresented. By this, they mean Christians like me! They would say that I misrepresent Christianity by proclaiming the truth of Scripture, that salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and that faith comes through hearing the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
The following is an image that they posted to their page with this description:
“We are Christians who have found an approach to God through the life and teachings of Jesus, the Christ – but recognize the faithfulness of other people who have other names for the way to God’s realm. We acknowledge that their ways are true for them, as our ways are true for us.”
When I shared this image and their quote to my Facebook page, Contradict – They Can’t All Be True, I only wrote the words, “Face Palm.” That simple phrase indicated my frustration and utter dismay for their post. I then received many comments in reply, from many thoughtful Christians quoting Scripture, or standing on the truth of Scripture. Here are some of those excellent replies:
Brent Traylor gave a long list of verses that demonstrate the exclusive nature of the Christian message revealed in Scripture:
Acts 16:30-31, KJV …Sirs, what must I do to be saved?  And they said,Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Acts 4:12 [The apostle Peter said] Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”1
Corinthians 3:11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
John 3:18, 36  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son….  Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.
John 6:66-68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
John 8:23-24 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.  I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am [the one I claim to be], you will indeed die in your sins.”
1 John 2:23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
1 John 5:11-12 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
MIchael DiStefano pegged the origin of this nonsense:
“Political correctness gone amok – I will NOT deny the blood Jesus shed for me!“
Lisa Ann’s response was extreme, yet so spot on, in her description that I think I laughed out loud:
“This is obscene! ! These people have never read The Holy Bible. There is only one God , the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.“
Lisa Koska said:
“We will never lump the Creator in with many lessor gods. The characteristics are completely different. The ways that are true for them lead to hell so just can’t sit back and be silent on that one. “I am Yahweh. That is my name. I will not give my glory to another, nor my praise to engraved images.” (Isaiah 42:8)
Josh Moore absolutely gets the total impossibility of religious pluralism. Great comment, Josh:
“Even Taking Christianity out of the equation, the statement they made is a logical fallacy.“
Ernest Sire Sr. recognized the role Contradict Movement plays in response to these so called Christians:
“This is perhaps the most vivid example of my understanding of why you started your ministry.“
Yes, Ernest, yes it is!
God bless you all for commenting and posting, and for standing on the truth of God’s Word. Let’s always remain on the rock of our salvation!
