Stop

Seriously people.

Stop trying to blend religions. Christ said that he is the way, the truth and the life. Nobody, I say it again, NOBODY comes to the Father except by him.

Let me simplify:

Jesus Saves ... that is all.

There is no guru, no method, not alternate. There is no other claimant to the throne of heaven.

All salvation is from Christ and his Church. it doesn't matter how you feel about this. It doesn't matter if you disagree. It doesn't matter how comfortable you are with God or his Church. The reality is simple. There are not many ways to heaven. There is only one way.

God does not need to accommodate himself to you. You need to accommodate yourself to God. I know that every teacher, soccer coach, guidance councilor, priest, pastor, and <insert authority figure here>, has told you that your opinion really matters. They have puffed us up so high with a level of pride that will eventually condemn us. But in this area, your opinion doesn't matter. Humility requires you to change. Humility requires you to submit. Humility requires you to turn to God. It doesn't work the other way around.

Stop trying to impose your preferences on God. He is God! To him all knees will bend. His job is to be God, our job is to love him with everything ounce of our very being. Don't fool yourself. God doesn't need you. He doesn't need your approval. He doesn't need your consent. Nothing you do can add anything to his glory.

Rejoice! God doesn't need you.

God wants you!

Seek his face.
