What Makes Jesus So Unique?
There is a battle being waged today as modern society seeks to ward off claims of religious exclusivism. Often times, Christianity finds itself on the defensive because of its “Jesus is the only way” belief. Such comments are seen as exclusive and narrow-minded in a world where “all paths lead to God.” Modern media portrayals of God go out of their way to avoid putting a stamp of approval on one particular religion, in a bid to avoid offending followers of other faiths. The word on the street is; “It’s okay to hold your beliefs to be true, as long as you don’t hold them to be any truer than mine.”
Mike Penninga looks at this important topic in this paper, entitled "The Uniqueness of Christ in a World full of Religion".
