Scriptures: Acts 1:8, Luke 13:3, John 14:6
Coexisting sounds like a great idea. Jesus, Jew, Mohammad--all true? Frankly, that is becoming the increasing chant of many people in the world today, including many, who profess to be Christians. This raises the central question that we must ask, before we even talk about missions and evangelism and that is this--Is there truly only one way that leads to God, or are there several? Or, is the truth somewhere in between. In this missions-minded sermon, designed for a time of missions emphasis, celebration or challenge, Dr. Merritt answers these questions with insight from God's Word.
"The job of the missionary is not to tell people how they are to be saved, but rather that they already are. The only problem with this belief is it would contradict the entire Bible from one end to the other concerning the dangers of idolatry as well as the reality of hell, which is eternal existence apart from God, not to mention the integrity and truthfulness of Jesus Christ Himself." --Dr. Merritt
