MAJ-7 - The Narrow-Minded Jesus
In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the father except by me.”
As you think about the words of Jesus throughout the New Testament, Jesus, as it relates to doctrinal matters, salvation, his teaching, was is indeed narrow-minded. Jesus was open to all who are willing to obey the Gospel, coming to Him. He said, “Not everybody that says Lord, Lord is going to Heaven but he who does the will of my Father in Heaven,” Matthew 7:21. And yet, at the same time Jesus said, “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden.” We need to think about the narrow-minded nature of Jesus’ teaching, and exclusivity of some of his principles concerning Christ himself and Christian living.
