  • “Aren’t only believers in Christ going to heaven and no one else?” — Rachel
    Christianity is often criticized for being exclusive in its rejection of other religions that profess to be alternative paths to God. This critique has legitimacy. The fact is Christianity, by definition, makes the direct claim that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to God.
    Here is a sampling of what the Bible says. In the Hebrew text, which Christians accept as authoritative and inspired, Israel is adjured to choose God and His way (e.g., Deut. 30; passim). In the New Testament, Jesus said, “I am the Way . . . no one comes to the Father except through Me” (Jn. 14:6). Those who believe in Jesus receive everlasting life; they become the children of God (Jn. 1:12; 3:16).
    In one of his early sermons, Jesus’ disciple Peter declared, “Salvation is found in no one else . . . there is no other Name under heaven by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Later he wrote, “We are born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (I Pet. 1:3). The Apostle Paul said, “In Christ there is no condemnation . . . if Christ is in you, your spirit is alive . . .” (Rom. 8:1ff).


    The 25th Annual Rocky Mountain Shapenote Convention will be from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday and from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday at Fuller Lodge.

    All are welcome for two full days of shapenote singing from the

    1991 edition of “The Sacred Harp.” Loaner books will be available.

    Dinner will be available on the grounds both days. Singing school will be 7 p.m. today at Kelly Hall in Trinity on the Hill Episcopalian Church, 3900 Trinity Dr.

    It’s old.  It’s spirited.  It’s hauntingly beautiful… and it’s 

    loud! Come sing for yourself!

    For more information call Claire Singleton 661-2666.
