In this world of high tolerance, we are encouraged to find similarities with everyone. To "COEXIST", as the pretty bumper sticker says. I feel like I should say things like "Deep down all religions to lead to the same place" and other platitudes. But really, deep down, I don't believe that at all. I struggle with how to say the Bible is the final authority on what is right without saying directly that someone else's beliefs are wrong. Even if the Bible says they are. Yes, I just grimaced a little because, of course, my mom comes to mind.
One morning I was trying to find a way in my head to assimilate Christianity and Buddhism. I was thinking that maybe we both had pieces of the same puzzle but just can't see the whole picture yet. Maybe we both can be right. Then the phone rang. It was my husband calling from the car on his drive into work.
"Hey, honey, the car in front of me says John 14:6 on the license plate. What is that one?"
"I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME."
