Is it arrogant to say, “Jesus is the only way”?
There are many, many religions in the world, and most of them have a lot of good things to say – “love your neighbor”, “let us all be thankful”, and “my religion is kindness”. These are all quotes by people in religions outside of Christianity. Many people ask, “How can one religion say that it is the only correct way to God? Why can’t they all be correct?” This idea is called “relativism.” Is it arrogant for us as Christians to say that Jesus is the only way to God? That is a very exclusive claim. What did Jesus say about it, and why is it important to us as Christians?
