Jesus is Lord indeed

Here's a good article by Maxie Dunham from the newest issue of Circuit Rider. This latest CR is full of articles about John 14:6, where Jesus says, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Here's an excerpt from Duhman's article:
"I believe the greatest theological barrier to mission and evangelism is a diminished belief in the uniqueness of Jesus. We have made idols of tolerance and inclusiveness. We speak and act as though diversity itself is redemptive. I believe our United Methodism and most mainline churhes have diminished because of this. If we don't have a clear understanding of and confidence in the gospel, we have no passion for sharing it. The witness of scripture is clear and the teaching of the church for 2000 years confirms that the gospel is nothing more and nothing less than the announcement made in word, deed, and sign, through the power of the Spirit, that the crucified and risen Jesus is Lord."
