A Mile Wide And An Inch Deep

Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus is the gate keeper of eternal life, yet a recent survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found 57% of people attending evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life. Therefore, over half of the people who attend these churches do not believe that Jesus is the only way!!! That is an astounding statistic.

Perhaps church leadership has watered down the good news of Jesus to the good news of affirmation and success. Perhaps the one dimensional messages of affirmation and success have bred a church population a mile wide and an inch deep, while the good news of Jesus is a mile wide and it’s also a mile deep.
