Pick a flavor and drink from the cup. 

If it doesn't suit your tastes, pick something else.  There's something for everyone. 

There really is.   

But not if you ask everyone, because most everyone will try to tell you that you must drink from their cup.  None more vehemently than the Jews.  Unless it's the Catholics.... But the Muslims?  They will insist that they are the true religion.  So will the protestants who fill cups with more flavors than anyone can count, and then there are the various cults of mormons, JW's, universalists, gnostics, peaceniks and priests of the green movement.

Oh and Hindus, Buddhists, Spiritualists of all kinds- such as native indians, african tribes or primal indigenous people of all kinds.

You must know that you can find both fine, and horrible folks among any and all groups.... why?  Because they are people and there are fine and horrible people everywhere within, or without religion.  And there are people who are fine at times, and horrible at other times.  Isn't it so of everyone you know?  Including you and me?

Honestly.  Do you think the cup you drink from is the very best flavor?  Do you insist that it must be?  Do you insist that others must come and taste and see?  That they are condemned if they do not?

Isn't that a little presumptuous?

So true, yet there is but one doctrine. Jesus Christ and Him crucified, buried and resurrected for the forgiveness of our sins. I do not force my theology on anyone and I can certainly be wrong about many things in the Bible. Who am I to judge another's heart? Although, Galatians 1:8-9 is in full effect it's not my place to scorn someone for thinking differently than me. I don't hate or condemn but rather, I persuade people.

You said it all right there... that a man would see his flesh put his to death and buried, be forgiven and rise again.

Yet there is not one doctrine, there are many.  The Way of Jesus can be found from many divergent paths.

Sure but...

The JWs non-divine Jesus is not the Way.

The Mormon earthly but elevated to divine status Jesus is not the Way.

The Buddhist "we are all divine" divine Jesus is not the way.

The Calvinist Jesus who created some of us just to end in hell is not the way.

The Armenian Jesus who calls for the gates of hell to shut upon those who can be saved but who have not yet decided to accept HIS salvation is not the way.

<BIG sigh>  <double facepalm>
Wheat are NOT reborn / regenerate tares !!!

Matt 13:36-43  ...Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

38 the field is the world
good seed are of the kingdom sown by the Son of man
tares are of the wicked one 39 sown by the devil


Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

I said many paths.  Not all paths.

Your Jesus, right?

Did Adam and Eve have your Jesus?  Or Noah? Did Abraham have your Jesus?
Did Moses have your Jesus?

So they came by another path, did they not? Or did you condemn them to hell with all the others you wouldn't admit?

Mister Mister, I think the prophets knew of a Saviour as they were told in many different ways, some were mysteries. I believe Isaiah knew Christ for instance.

The Christ, yes.

But if you were to conduct a survey of religious adherents of all different stripes as mentioned in the OP, of those that follow Jesus-- they will all tell you that Jesus is the only way.  Jesus.  They might say Jesus Christ, but they will insist that only Jesus saves and that Jesus died for them to save them, so it must be retroactive, right?

As another example-- John the Baptist.  He died before Jesus was crucified, so he was retroactively saved by the death and sacrifice of Jesus?

Is that how it must work?

It proposes a problem for some folks, to phrase it this way.

On one hand-- if you were to say that ONLY by Jesus Christ is one saved, then you have stuck yourself in a bit of a corner.  You would have to insist that people like Abraham, Moses, and John the Baptist and others like them who preceded the time of the crucifixion were either- not saved by the blood of Christ, or that the blood of Christ somehow applies to even those who lived and sinned and died before the time of Jesus. 

And if the blood applies to those who never knew him or the good news, then surely it also applies (is available) to other people who have never even heard the gospel or had an opportunity to repent. 

It's an interesting conundrum.  Except it isn't.  It's obvious that Jesus is the Way-- in that it is through the Christ that is the example and it is clear that the Christ is not limited to space and time and our understanding of this work.

Wrong. People have always been saved by grace through faith just as we are now. That is why there is a New Testament, because of the birth and life of Jesus, the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Saviour. Jesus was sent by His Father for the Jews only. God knew they would reject Him and murder him and now the Gentiles are grafted in. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and there is no other way.

We are saying the same thing a different manner.  Saved by grace, through faith.  But obviously those who preceded JESUS, did not put their faith in JESUS, so those who say that the only means of salvation is by faith in JESUS Christ, are lacking understanding, and secondarily-- people can and are saved by grace, through faith-- though they walk other paths.

Before Christ was the Old Testament, no belief in Jesus was required but obeying the law was. Now it is grace. Simple.

Yes-- simple.

Abraham, Issac and Jacob-- to name a few all came before Moses and thus before the Law.

So God comes, as He chooses, to whom He chooses, how He chooses and it is by His grace, we are saved.

Those who insist the God must come in a manner they expect are those who miss (sin) when He comes in a manner they do not expect.
