Christians are often "put on the spot" by questions about our faith, and it's important that we answer graciously but truthfully (Colossians 4:6).
1 Peter 3:15 says, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."
I was once asked:
"How can you say Jesus is the only way? That sounds arrogant and exclusive."
And this is how I answered:
"If it were my idea, it would be arrogant. But it's the teaching of Jesus Himself:"
"In John 14:6, Jesus says, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'
"And Jesus isn't exclusive--He cares so deeply about each of us that He died a terrible death to make our salvation possible. He wants all men to accept His offer of grace. He says this in 1 Timothy 2:3-4."
How would you answer this question?
For more Scriptures confirming that Jesus is the only way of salvation, read "Is Jesus the Only Way?" After reading it, why not copy the verses in a notebook or the back of your Bible so you'll be prepared to answer anyone who asks.
