Continuing with a more in depth review of the DVD series – Towards Belief. This week looking at Exclusive Faith:

• All faiths are exclusive (eg someone who believes all roads lead to God excludes those who believe only some roads lead to God)
• Christians are seen as arrogant yet it is just as arrogant to claim all paths lead to God
• There are three groups of world religions: Eastern, Secular and Abrahamic
• World religions are different and have contradictory beliefs so they can’t all be true
• All faiths believe they have the truth, even atheists. No group wants to compromise their faith by including others who believe differently. It is disrespectful to ask them to do so
• Political correctness stifles good conversation
• Media focuses on the noisy minority
• If you say that there is no absolute truth you are stating an absolute
• Christians need to present the gospel in a way that says, “God is worthy of your mind”
• There are good, wonderful, true things in all religions
• The uniqueness of Christianity is seen in the incarnation and in giving hope
• Other religions are about chasing after God; Christianity is about God chasing after us
