"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father directly, but first by way of me." ~ John 14:6 (Kimicus ad Absurdum translation)
"Neither is there salvation in any other entity: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, through whom we may be saved." ~ Acts 4:12 (Kimicus ad Absurdum translation)

Scripture of the Day - God (John 14:6 & Acts 4:12)
At church this morning Pastor Steve briefly referenced the doctrinally compromising and overly-inclusive broad sweep of Universalism and its tradition of deludedly believing and falsely preaching that God is incapable of actually punishing his children in this life let alone throughout all eternity in damnation in the world to come. These Universalists proclaim that all the religions of the world are like "spokes on a wheel all leading to God in the middle" as if there is no specificity or exclusivity to God and all faiths are equally valid as modes of acquiring enlightenment and interacting with the divine. The Bible being either all true or all untrue as is its nature states emphatically in John 14:6 and Acts 4:12 that the Universalists are lying to themselves and others.
