Jesus is the ONLY Way to Heaven
Posted on July 15 2014
According to Fox News, "Two Baptist chaplains said they were forced out of a Veterans Affairs chaplain training program after they refused orders to stop quoting the Bible and to stop praying in the name of Jesus...There were seven chaplains enrolled in the San Diego program led by Nancy Dietsch, a Department of Veterans Affairs employee with a history of antagonistic behavior towards evangelicals. She’s been very, very critical of Christians. Instead of teaching anything dealing with faith issues, she’s dealing with a holistic, humanistic approach. It’s the idea that the spirit comes from within." Yes, the spirit is within, because God put it there!
Later that month she told students that there are many ways to heaven and that one religion cannot be right, while others are wrong. Firtko [one of the chaplains] objected to that statement by quoting Jesus who said “I am the way, the truth and the life, and was told to stop quoting from the Bible and stated, “If you believe your beliefs are right, and everyone else’s is wrong, you do not belong in this program.”
If one does not stand up for what one believes in, misguided people such as Nancy Dietsch, will attempt to intimidate one into questioning one's belief. According to her (and many others), there are many ways to heaven and Christians should stop teaching the Living Word set forth in the Bible because it is not true. She wants to teach her holistic humanistic approach and expects the chaplains to adhere to them. Hypocrite much? Why are her teachings right and should be taught but Christian beliefs are to be left at home?
When are we going to understand that it is not about us? It is about Jesus, the means by which God said we can get to heaven. Yes, the Bible says to love one another. But it doesn't end there. You can be as caring as Mother Theresa, but without Jesus Christ as your Savior, you will NOT enter the kingdom of God. The same Bible that introduced us to the Almighty, is the same God that lays out the means by which to please and serve Him!
“Not only was the treatment these men received inappropriate, it was also a violation of federal law and the religious freedom guarantees of the First Amendment,” said John Wells, an attorney representing the Colorado-based denomination." He went on to say that it appears the government is trying to establish “a secular humanist-based religion free from any influence of Christian dogma.”
God help them for they know not what they are doing!
