With this episode we are beginning a series on overcoming objections to Christianity. To start with we want to address the criticism often leveled at bible-believing Christians today that our perspective on salvation is too narrow-minded and exclusive. Who are we to say that all the other religions are wrong? In order to tackle this issue, we begin with the words of Jesus himself who said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14.6). If we remain committed to scripture then the question is not, “Is Christ the only way to salvation?” but “How is that fair?” What about the old lady in Fiji who never got a chance to hear about Jesus? Listen in as we explore five answers to this important question.
