Walking with Jesus while acknowledging the possibility of other legitimate paths

For many, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus have provided a way of living that is deeply transformational and connected to God. Following in the path of Jesus means, at its core, that love of God, neighbor and self are practiced together in concrete ways. Living life in this way, even if not done in the name of Jesus, bears the identity of Christ. Of course, following this path does not deny the possibility of other legitimate paths. Engaging in thoughtful and generous dialogue with those of other faith traditions stretches and strengthens Christian faith while fostering peace.

Pluralism Episode 1: The Faith of Jesus In a Pluralistic World

COMMENTARY  |  Darkwood Brew

Increasingly, people are recognizing that the survival of the human race depends upon adherents of the major world religions coexisting peacefully with one another. Yet many Christians wonder how peace is possible apart from conversion to Christianity, particularly in light of Jesus’ statement, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Is it possible to take these words seriously without denying the existence of other paths God may create for humanity? The very future of Christianity and civilization may depend upon our answer. In this series, we will discover how this question is being answered and lived in surprising and hopeful ways.
