You say there is only one way to heaven? What if I am on the wrong road...but well meaning and sincere?
The Golden Rule that Jesus taught is fundamentally different than any other philosophically teaching of its kind through history. What Christ taught was an action phrase that requires us to step into others lives. It is much easier to just not cause someone pain than in “everything” do them right. It is much easier to avoid than give, to isolate than surrender, to ignore than care. How can anyone truly implement this golden rule? – The answer of the gospel is that you must start with God – greatest command “love God and love people”– start with God
ISN’T A BUILDING.
We each come — bringing our unique stories — to journey life together as a community. It is not about uniformity, but unity, so that together we may live for something bigger than ourselves. So no matter where you are in life we invite you to come as you are and encourage you to live for something greater.
By abiding in Jesus and endeavoring to be more like Him through time spent with God and His Word, we begin to see that good fruit He promises in our lives as He prunes us into who He made us to be. We begin to understand more plainly why Jesus had to come and die for our sins, and what it looks like to follow Him.
It does not take much for one go down the wide road. The truth is, it is far easier… at first. Inevitably, however, that “wide gate” and the road that follows eventually ends in emptiness, isolation, desolation...
The Golden Rule was not a concept completely unique to the Bible, so versions of it are a largely universal idea. In Matthew 7:12, Jesus not only made this age-old idea active, He also pointed to the legitimacy of Scripture as the whole reason for the action.
You will never be good enough, and that is okay.
Truth be told, God’s love for us is not determined by the good things we do, or shockingly, even the bad. His love is a free gift offered to us from the moment He breathed the breath of life into us. It is a radical reality, and one that we cannot often parallel in this world. It is what makes our ability to converse with God so incredibly profound.
