Is Jesus the only way to God?
In the Bible, Jesus says “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6). This month, we meet at St. Leonard’s church to dine and discuss. It seems that Christians are people who profess that God loves everyone, yet profess that same God excludes those who don’t follow Jesus. In a world where many faith traditions coexist, is it not arrogant for Christians claim that Jesus is essential in this way?
On December 12, the Men’s Supper Club will be looking at chapter 5 of Lee Strobel’s book The Case for Faith, where Strobel tackles this objection head on. He considers not only the apparent arrogance of the Christian viewpoint, but also the implications of considering different religions to be equivalent (“we all worship the same God”) or morally persuasive (“each person can find their own path”).
The Men’s Supper Club at St. Leonard’s
Gentlemen, if you have an appetite for food to nourish the body and the soul, the Men’s Supper Club is for you. The evening begins with a social mixer followed by a hearty dinner. After dinner we dig into a significant piece of contemporary writing on Christian themes.
For the December meeting, we’re meeting at St. Leonard’s Church (just northeast of Yonge Street at Lawrence Avenue). It promises to be a lively, sociable, and enlightening evening out.
