  • 00:02:31.674 --> 00:02:33.943

  • WOULD REJECT THE BIBLE'S CLAIM
  • 00:02:39.782 --> 00:02:42.285
  • THAT CHRISTIANITY ISTHE ONLY RIGHT RELIGION?
  • 00:02:42.318 --> 00:02:45.655
  • WELL, SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE SUCHA VIEWPOINT IS INTOLERANT.
  • 00:02:45.688 --> 00:02:49.392
  • IT'S INTOLERANT TO SAY ALLOTHER RELIGIONS ARE WRONG,
  • 00:02:49.425 --> 00:02:52.595
  • ONLY CHRISTIANITY IS CORRECT.
  • 00:02:52.629 --> 00:02:54.631
  • AND OF COURSE IN TODAY'SPOLITICALLY CORRECT CULTURE,
  • 00:02:54.664 --> 00:02:57.533
  • THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO
  • 00:02:57.567 --> 00:02:58.801
  • IS BE ACCUSED OFBEING INTOLERANT.
  • 00:02:58.835 --> 00:03:01.838
  • SECONDLY, SOME PEOPLE SAY,
  • 00:03:01.871 --> 00:03:03.273
  • "WELL SUCH A CLAIM ISREALLY UNNECESSARY.

  • BUT THE FACT THAT THERE ARE SOMANY RELIGIONS IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:03:12.949 --> 00:03:16.452
  • AND THAT HISTORICALLY THEREHAS BEEN SUCH INTENSE STRIVE
  • 00:03:16.486 --> 00:03:19.255
  • BETWEEN THE RELIGIONSOF THE WORLD,
  • 00:03:19.289 --> 00:03:21.824
  • IS BECAUSE NOT OF THESIMILARITIES OF RELIGIONS,
  • 00:03:21.858 --> 00:03:24.460
  • BUT BECAUSE OF THEDIFFERENCES BETWEEN RELIGIONS.
  • 00:03:24.494 --> 00:03:28.231
  • AND THEN, FINALLY WE SAIDSOME PEOPLE REJECT EXCLUSIVISM
  • 00:03:28.264 --> 00:03:31.801
  • BECAUSE THEY FIND SUCHAN IDEA TROUBLING.
  • 00:03:31.834 --> 00:03:34.370
  • I MEAN THINK ABOUT THIS,THERE ARE SEVEN BILLION PEOPLE
  • 00:03:34.404 --> 00:03:37.573
  • LIVING ON PLANETEARTH RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:03:37.607 --> 00:03:39.842
  • ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGEEVEN CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:03:39.876 --> 00:03:43.546
  • IF CHRISTIANITY'S THEONLY RIGHT RELIGION,
  • 00:03:43.579 --> 00:03:46.115
  • THEN THAT MEANS BILLIONSAND BILLIONS OF PEOPLE
  • 00:03:46.149 --> 00:03:48.551
  • WHO ARE ALIVE NOW,
  • 00:03:48.584 --> 00:03:49.819
  • AND WHO HAVE BEEN ALIVEIN PREVIOUS GENERATIONS,
  • 00:03:49.852 --> 00:03:52.655
  • ARE DESTINED TO SPENDETERNITY SEPARATED FROM GOD.
  • 00:03:52.689 --> 00:03:55.992
  • AND THAT IS TROUBLINGTO MANY PEOPLE,
  • 00:03:56.025 --> 00:03:58.161
  • AND SO THEY REJECT THE IDEA
  • 00:03:58.194 --> 00:03:59.762
  • THAT CHRISTIANITY ISTHE ONLY RIGHT RELIGION.
  • 00:03:59.796 --> 00:04:03.399
  • WELL, HOW CAN WEKNOW THAT IN FACT,
  • 00:04:03.433 --> 00:04:05.802
  • CHRISTIANITY ISTHE RIGHT RELIGION?
  • 00:04:05.835 --> 00:04:09.072
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOINGTO TALK ABOUT TODAY.
  • 00:04:09.105 --> 00:04:11.341
  • TODAY WE'RE GOING TOLOOK AT FOUR EVIDENCES

  • THAT ARGUE FOR THE EXCLUSIVITYOF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.
  • 00:04:14.344 --> 00:04:18.715
  • FIRST OF ALL, IWANT YOU TO CONSIDER
  • 00:04:18.748 --> 00:04:20.817
  • THE UNIQUENESS OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:04:20.850 --> 00:04:23.486
  • THE UNIQUENESS OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:04:23.519 --> 00:04:25.421
  • DO YOU REALIZETHAT FEW HISTORIANS
  • 00:04:25.455 --> 00:04:28.124
  • EVEN DOUBT THAT JESUS EXISTED.
  • 00:04:28.157 --> 00:04:30.727
  • MOST HISTORIANS AGREE THATJESUS WAS A HISTORICAL PERSON.
  • 00:04:30.760 --> 00:04:34.797
  • EVEN THOMAS PAINE, THE DEIST,
  • 00:04:34.831 --> 00:04:37.166
  • WHO BELIEVED THAT THE BIBLEIS FILLED WITH ERRORS,
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:39.702
  • HE STILL BELIEVED IN THEHISTORICITY OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:04:39.736 --> 00:04:43.239
  • HOWEVER, THOMAS PAINE BELIEVED
  • 00:04:43.272 --> 00:04:45.641
  • WHAT MOST PEOPLE BELIEVETODAY ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:04:45.675 --> 00:04:48.444
  • AND THAT IS, HE IS AGOOD, MORAL PERSON,
  • 00:04:48.478 --> 00:04:52.315
  • BUT HE CERTAINLY WASN'T GOD.
  • 00:04:52.348 --> 00:04:54.650
  • NOW THE ONLY PROBLEMWITH THE BELIEVING
  • 00:04:54.684 --> 00:04:56.686
  • THAT JESUS WAS AGOOD MORAL PERSON,
  • 00:04:56.719 --> 00:04:58.888
  • BUT WASN'T GOD, ISTHAT JESUS HIMSELF
  • 00:04:58.921 --> 00:05:01.691
  • DOESN'T GIVE YOU THATOPTION OF BELIEVING THAT.
  • 00:05:01.724 --> 00:05:05.027
  • FIRST OF ALL, I WANTUS TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:05:05.061 --> 00:05:07.130
  • WHAT JESUS CLAIMEDABOUT HIMSELF.
  • 00:05:07.163 --> 00:05:09.532
  • YOU SEE, JESUS CLAIMEDMORE, MUCH MORE,
  • 00:05:09.565 --> 00:05:13.102
  • THAN SIMPLY BEING AGOOD, MORAL TEACHER.
  • 00:05:13.136 --> 00:05:15.738
  • HERE ARE FOUR CLAIMSJESUS MADE ABOUT HIMSELF.
  • 00:05:15.772 --> 00:05:18.541
  • JOT THEM DOWN ON YOUR OUTLINE.
  • 00:05:18.574 --> 00:05:19.842
  • FIRST OF ALL, JESUSCLAIMED TO BE GOD.
  • 00:05:19.876 --> 00:05:24.547
  • NOW, ALTHOUGH OTHER RELIGIOUSLEADERS AND PHILOSOPHERS
  • 00:05:24.580 --> 00:05:27.116
  • HAVE ATTEMPTED TO POINTPEOPLE TOWARD GOD,
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:29.619
  • NO OTHER RELIGIOUS LEADER
  • 00:05:29.652 --> 00:05:31.187
  • ACTUALLY CLAIMEDTO BE GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:34.891
  • IN JOHN 10:30, JESUS SAID,"I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE."
  • 00:05:34.924 --> 00:05:41.964
  • THAT'S PRETTY CLEAR, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:05:41.998 --> 00:05:43.299
  • "I AND GOD ARE ONE."
  • 00:05:43.332 --> 00:05:46.169
  • WHEN PHILIP BEGGEDTHE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:05:46.202 --> 00:05:49.338
  • "LORD, SHOW US THE FATHER,AND IT'S ENOUGH FOR US."
  • 00:05:49.372 --> 00:05:52.708
  • NOTICE HOW JESUS RESPONDEDTO PHILIP'S REQUEST
  • 00:05:52.742 --> 00:05:56.078
  • TO SHOW PHILIP GOD.
  • 00:05:56.112 --> 00:05:57.580
  • IN JOHN 14:9, JESUS SAID,"HAVE I BEEN SO LONG WITH YOU,
  • 00:05:57.613 --> 00:06:03.686
  • "AND YET YOU HAVE NOTCOME TO KNOW ME, PHILIP?
  • 00:06:03.719 --> 00:06:05.254
  • "HE WHO HAS SEEN ME,HAS SEEN THE FATHER,
  • 00:06:05.288 --> 00:06:08.458
  • "SO HOW CAN YOU SAY,'SHOW US THE FATHER.'"
  • 00:06:08.491 --> 00:06:11.994
  • DURING ONE OF JESUS' TRIALS,BEFORE HE WAS CRUCIFIED,
  • 00:06:12.028 --> 00:06:15.731
  • HE WAS BROUGHT BEFORE
  • 00:06:15.765 --> 00:06:17.200
  • THE HIGH PRIEST OF JERUSALEMAT THAT TIME, CAIAPHAS.
  • 00:06:17.233 --> 00:06:20.703
  • AND WE SAW IN A PREVIOUS SESSIONHOW ARCHEOLOGY HAS PROVED
  • 00:06:20.736 --> 00:06:25.208
  • THAT CAIAPHAS WASACTUALLY THE HIGH PRIEST,
  • 00:06:25.241 --> 00:06:27.777
  • IN 1991 HIS TOMB WASFOUND IN JERUSALEM,
  • 00:06:27.810 --> 00:06:30.980
  • AND GUESS WHAT, IT PROVEDWHAT THE BIBLE HAS SAID
  • 00:06:31.013 --> 00:06:32.982
  • FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, THATTHERE WAS A MAN NAMED CAIAPHAS,
  • 00:06:33.015 --> 00:06:36.018
  • THAT HE WAS THE HIGH PRIEST
  • 00:06:36.052 --> 00:06:37.220
  • DURING JESUS' TRIALAND CRUCIFIXION.
  • 00:06:37.253 --> 00:06:39.922
  • BUT ANYWAY, WHEN JESUS WASSTANDING BEFORE CAIAPHAS,
  • 00:06:39.956 --> 00:06:43.125
  • THE HIGH PRIEST, CAIAPHASASKED JESUS POINT BLANK,
  • 00:06:43.159 --> 00:06:46.863
  • "ARE YOU THE CHRIST, THESON OF THE BLESSED ONE?"
  • 00:06:46.896 --> 00:06:50.800
  • AND IN MARK 14:62,JESUS ANSWERED, "I AM."
  • 00:06:50.833 --> 00:06:55.471
  • I'VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY, WELLJESUS NEVER CLAIMED TO BE GOD.
  • 00:06:55.505 --> 00:06:59.108
  • THAT'S JUST SOMETHINGHIS OVERZEALOUS APOSTLES
  • 00:06:59.141 --> 00:07:01.611
  • MADE UP ABOUT HIM, AFTERHE WAS OFF THE SCENE.
  • 00:07:01.644 --> 00:07:04.547
  • NO, JESUS WAS VERYCLEAR, JOHN 10:30,
  • 00:07:04.580 --> 00:07:07.316
  • "I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE."
  • 00:07:07.350 --> 00:07:08.951
  • HERE, WHEN ASKED, "ARE YOUTHE SON OF THE BLESSED ONE?"
  • 00:07:08.985 --> 00:07:11.687
  • HE SAID, "I AM."
  • 00:07:11.721 --> 00:07:13.623
  • AND JUST LOOK ATCAIAPHAS'S REACTION,
  • 00:07:13.656 --> 00:07:15.625
  • ALONG WITH THOSEIN THE SANHEDRIN,
  • 00:07:15.658 --> 00:07:17.660
  • THE RULING COUNCIL OF THE JEWS,
  • 00:07:17.693 --> 00:07:19.295
  • WHEN THEY HEARD HIM SAYTHIS, VERSE 63 SAYS:
  • 00:07:19.328 --> 00:07:22.665
  • TEARING HIS CLOTHES,THE HIGH PRIEST SAID,
  • 00:07:22.698 --> 00:07:25.468
  • "WHAT FURTHER NEED DOWE HAVE OF WITNESSES?
  • 00:07:25.501 --> 00:07:28.104
  • "YOU HAVE HEARD THIS BLASPHEMY,HOW DOES IT SEEM TO YOU?"
  • 00:07:28.137 --> 00:07:31.641
  • AND THEY ALL CONDEMNED JESUSTO BE DESERVING OF DEATH.
  • 00:07:31.674 --> 00:07:35.878
  • JESUS CLAIMED TO BE GOD,SECONDLY, JESUS CLAIMED
  • 00:07:35.912 --> 00:07:39.315
  • TO BE ABLE TO FORGIVE SINS.
  • 00:07:39.348 --> 00:07:41.517
  • NO OTHER RELIGIOUS LEADEREVER CLAIMED THE ABILITY
  • 00:07:41.551 --> 00:07:44.921
  • TO ACTUALLY FORGIVEPEOPLE OF THEIR SINS.
  • 00:07:44.954 --> 00:07:47.323
  • FOR EXAMPLE, THE BUDDHASAID, "IN REALITY,
  • 00:07:47.356 --> 00:07:50.960
  • "THERE ARE NO LIVING BEINGS
  • 00:07:50.993 --> 00:07:52.828
  • "TO WHOM THE LORD BUDDHACAN BRING SALVATION."
  • 00:07:52.862 --> 00:07:56.065
  • BUDDHA SAID I'M INCAPABLEOF BRINGING SALVATION.
  • 00:07:56.098 --> 00:07:58.868
  • IN FACT, ALL OTHER RELIGIOUSLEADERS HAVE THIS IN COMMON,
  • 00:07:58.901 --> 00:08:02.071
  • NONE OF THEM CLAIMED TO BE ABLE
  • 00:08:02.104 --> 00:08:04.273
  • TO BRING PEOPLE TO SALVATION.
  • 00:08:04.307 --> 00:08:06.709
  • BUT JESUS WAS DIFFERENT, HECLAIMED TO HAVE THE AUTHORITY
  • 00:08:06.742 --> 00:08:10.313
  • TO FORGIVE PEOPLE OF THEIR SINS.
  • 00:08:10.346 --> 00:08:12.615
  • IN MARK 2,WE HAVE THE STORY
  • 00:08:12.648 --> 00:08:14.584
  • OF A GROUP OF DISCIPLES,
  • 00:08:14.617 --> 00:08:15.818
  • BRINGING A PARALYTICTO SEE AND HEAR JESUS.
  • 00:08:15.851 --> 00:08:19.055
  • IN MARK 2:5 SAYS, ANDJESUS SEEING THEIR FAITH,
  • 00:08:19.088 --> 00:08:22.925
  • SAID TO THE PARALYTIC, "SON,YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN."
  • 00:08:22.959 --> 00:08:27.396
  • WELL THE RELIGIOUSLEADERS WERE INFURIATED,
  • 00:08:27.430 --> 00:08:29.498
  • WHEN JESUS CLAIMED TOBE ABLE TO FORGIVE SINS,
  • 00:08:29.532 --> 00:08:32.168
  • BECAUSE IN VERSE 7 THEY SAID,
  • 00:08:32.201 --> 00:08:33.469
  • "WHY DOES THIS MANSPEAK THIS WAY?
  • 00:08:33.502 --> 00:08:36.272
  • "HE IS BLASPHEMING, WHO CANFORGIVE SINS BUT GOD ALONE?"
  • 00:08:36.305 --> 00:08:42.678
  • OR ANYBODY WHO SAYS IFORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS,
  • 00:08:42.712 --> 00:08:44.914
  • THEY'RE CLAIMING TO BE GOD.
  • 00:08:44.947 --> 00:08:47.149
  • NOW, THE TRUTH IS, ANYBODYCAN CLAIM TO FORGIVE SINS.
  • 00:08:47.183 --> 00:08:50.786
  • HOW COULD THIS MAN KNOW
  • 00:08:50.820 --> 00:08:52.254
  • THAT HIS SINS HADINDEED BEEN FORGIVEN?
  • 00:08:52.288 --> 00:08:55.157
  • WELL, LOOK AT VERSES10 TO 12 OF MARK 2,
  • 00:08:55.191 --> 00:08:57.627
  • JESUS SAID, "SO THAT YOUMAY KNOW THAT THE SON OF MAN
  • 00:08:57.660 --> 00:09:00.763
  • "HAS AUTHORITY ONEARTH TO FORGIVE SINS."
  • 00:09:00.796 --> 00:09:03.165
  • HE SAID TO THE PARALYTIC,"I SAY TO YOU, GET UP,
  • 00:09:03.199 --> 00:09:05.968
  • "TAKE UP YOURPALLET AND GO HOME."
  • 00:09:06.002 --> 00:09:08.204
  • AND THE PARALYTIC GOT UP,
  • 00:09:08.237 --> 00:09:09.538
  • AND IMMEDIATELYPICKED UP THE PALLET,
  • 00:09:09.572 --> 00:09:11.273
  • AND WENT OUT IN THESIGHT OF EVERYONE,
  • 00:09:11.307 --> 00:09:13.275
  • SO THAT THEY WERE ALLAMAZED, AND GLORIFYING GOD,
  • 00:09:13.309 --> 00:09:15.811
  • SAYING "WE'VE NEVER SEENANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE."
  • 00:09:15.845 --> 00:09:18.581
  • SEE, JESUS PERFORMED THE MIRACLE
  • 00:09:18.614 --> 00:09:20.683
  • TO SHOW THAT INDEED HE WAS GOD,
  • 00:09:20.716 --> 00:09:22.885
  • WHO HAD THE AUTHORITY TOBE ABLE TO FORGIVE SINS.
  • 00:09:22.918 --> 00:09:25.755
  • IN FACT, JESUS TAUGHTOVER AND OVER AGAIN
  • 00:09:25.788 --> 00:09:27.823
  • THAT HIS WHOLE REASONTO COME TO EARTH
  • 00:09:27.857 --> 00:09:30.693
  • WAS TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDETHE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.
  • 00:09:30.726 --> 00:09:33.929
  • IN LUKE 19:10, THE LORDSAID ABOUT HIMSELF,
  • 00:09:33.963 --> 00:09:38.167
  • "FOR THE SON OF MAN HASCOME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE
  • 00:09:38.200 --> 00:09:42.438
  • "THOSE WHICH WERE LOST."
  • 00:09:42.471 --> 00:09:45.207
  • NUMBER THREE, NOT ONLYDID JESUS CLAIM TO BE GOD,
  • 00:09:45.241 --> 00:09:47.643
  • NOT ONLY DID HE CLAIM TOBE ABLE TO FORGIVE SINS,
  • 00:09:47.677 --> 00:09:49.945
  • JESUS CLAIMED TO BEABLE TO CONQUER DEATH.
  • 00:09:49.979 --> 00:09:54.050
  • FROM THE BEGINNINGOF HIS MINISTRY,
  • 00:09:54.083 --> 00:09:55.484
  • JESUS PROPHESIED WHATWAS GONNA HAPPEN TO HIM.
  • 00:09:55.518 --> 00:09:58.087
  • HE SAID, "I'M GOINGTO GO TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:09:58.120 --> 00:09:59.855
  • "I'M GONNA BE TRIED,I'M GONNA BE EXECUTED,
  • 00:09:59.889 --> 00:10:02.491
  • "AND ON THE THIRD DAY, I'MGONNA RISE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD."
  • 00:10:02.525 --> 00:10:05.528
  • MATTHEW SAYS, FROM THAT TIME ON,
  • 00:10:05.561 --> 00:10:08.264
  • JESUS BEGAN TOSHOW HIS DISCIPLES
  • 00:10:08.297 --> 00:10:10.733
  • THAT HE MUST GO TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:10:10.766 --> 00:10:12.802
  • HE MUST SUFFER MANY THINGS,
  • 00:10:12.835 --> 00:10:14.236
  • FROM THE ELDERS AND CHIEFPRIESTS AND SCRIBES,
  • 00:10:14.270 --> 00:10:16.505
  • AND BE KILLED, AND RAISEDUP ON THE THIRD DAY.
  • 00:10:16.539 --> 00:10:19.308
  • WHY HAD HE MUST GO TO JERUSALEM?
  • 00:10:19.341 --> 00:10:22.712
  • BECAUSE THAT WASPART OF GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:10:22.745 --> 00:10:24.680
  • JESUS' DEATH WAS NOT ACCIDENTAL,
  • 00:10:24.714 --> 00:10:26.315
  • IT WASN'T A PART OF THERESULT OF SOME BAD MEN
  • 00:10:26.348 --> 00:10:29.652
  • GETTING AHOLD OF JESUS,
  • 00:10:29.685 --> 00:10:30.786
  • AND PREMATURELYEXTINGUISHING HIS LIFE.
  • 00:10:30.820 --> 00:10:33.155
  • JESUS' DEATH WASPART OF GOD'S PLAN
  • 00:10:33.189 --> 00:10:35.324
  • TO BRING SALVATION TO THEWORLD, AND JESUS KNEW THIS.
  • 00:10:35.357 --> 00:10:38.060
  • AND THAT'S WHY HE SAID,FROM THE BEGINNING,
  • 00:10:38.094 --> 00:10:39.729
  • I'M GONNA BE TRIED,I'M GONNA BE EXECUTED,
  • 00:10:39.762 --> 00:10:41.530
  • AND I'M GONNA RISEAGAIN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:10:41.564 --> 00:10:43.432
  • FURTHERMORE, JESUS SAID THATHIS RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD
  • 00:10:43.466 --> 00:10:47.670
  • WOULD BE THE SIGNALPROOF TO EVERYONE
  • 00:10:47.703 --> 00:10:51.173
  • THAT HE WAS TRULYTHE SON OF GOD.
  • 00:10:51.207 --> 00:10:53.476
  • LOOK AT MATTHEW 12:38-40,THEN SOME OF THE SCRIBES
  • 00:10:53.509 --> 00:10:57.480
  • AND PHARISEES SAIDTO JESUS, "TEACHER,
  • 00:10:57.513 --> 00:10:59.915
  • "WE WANNA SEE A SIGN FROM YOU."
  • 00:10:59.949 --> 00:11:01.784
  • WE WANNA KNOW THAT YOU'REREALLY WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE.
  • 00:11:01.817 --> 00:11:04.353
  • VERSE 39, JESUS ANSWEREDAND SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:11:04.386 --> 00:11:07.389
  • "AN EVIL AND ADULTEROUSGENERATION CRAVES FOR A SIGN,
  • 00:11:07.423 --> 00:11:11.093
  • "AND YET NO SIGNSHALL BE GIVEN TO YOU,
  • 00:11:11.127 --> 00:11:13.429
  • "EXCEPT THE SIGN OFJONAH THE PROPHET."
  • 00:11:13.462 --> 00:11:16.565
  • WHAT WAS THAT SIGN?
  • 00:11:16.599 --> 00:11:18.033
  • VERSE 40, FOR JUST AS JONAHWAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS
  • 00:11:18.067 --> 00:11:21.137
  • IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER,
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:22.538
  • IT MEANS GREAT FISH,SO SHALL THE SON OF MAN
  • 00:11:22.571 --> 00:11:25.407
  • BE THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTSIN THE HEART OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:11:25.441 --> 00:11:28.944
  • IN OTHER WORDS, JUSTAS JONAH ONLY STAYED
  • 00:11:28.978 --> 00:11:31.547
  • IN THE BELLY OF THAT GREAT FISH
  • 00:11:31.580 --> 00:11:33.215
  • FOR THREE DAYS AND THREENIGHTS, AFTER I'M DEAD,
  • 00:11:33.249 --> 00:11:36.886
  • AFTER I'M BURIED, I'M ONLYGONNA REMAIN IN THE GRAVE
  • 00:11:36.919 --> 00:11:40.055
  • A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME,
  • 00:11:40.089 --> 00:11:41.457
  • AND THEN I'M GONNA RISEAGAIN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:11:41.490 --> 00:11:45.327
  • NOW, SOME OF YOU MAY BE SAYING,"WELL THAT'S A BIG STRETCH,
  • 00:11:45.361 --> 00:11:47.296
  • "TO READ A RESURRECTIONINTO WHAT JESUS WAS SAYING."
  • 00:11:47.329 --> 00:11:51.100
  • NOT AT ALL, DID YOU KNOWTHAT EVEN JESUS' ENEMIES
  • 00:11:51.133 --> 00:11:54.870
  • UNDERSTOOD WHAT HEWAS PROPHESYING?
  • 00:11:54.904 --> 00:11:57.306
  • THEY KNEW EXACTLYWHAT HE WAS PREDICTING
  • 00:11:57.339 --> 00:11:59.742
  • WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO HIS BODY.
  • 00:11:59.775 --> 00:12:01.410
  • THEY KNEW THAT THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:12:01.443 --> 00:12:03.712
  • WAS AT THE CORE OF HIS TEACHING.
  • 00:12:03.746 --> 00:12:05.548
  • AND THAT EXPLAINS WHY JESUS'ENEMIES DID WHAT THEY DID
  • 00:12:05.581 --> 00:12:09.485
  • THE SATURDAY AFTERHIS CRUCIFIXION.
  • 00:12:09.518 --> 00:12:11.720
  • IN MATTHEW 27,BEGINNING WITH VERSE 62,
  • 00:12:11.754 --> 00:12:15.591
  • NOW ON THE NEXT DAY, THEDAY AFTER THE PREPARATION,
  • 00:12:15.624 --> 00:12:18.794
  • THAT IS AFTER JESUS'BODY HAD BEEN PREPARED,
  • 00:12:18.828 --> 00:12:21.697
  • THE CHIEF PRIESTAND THE PHARISEES
  • 00:12:21.730 --> 00:12:23.666
  • GATHERED TOGETHER WITHPILATE, AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:12:23.699 --> 00:12:26.502
  • "SIR, WE REMEMBER THATWHEN JESUS WAS STILL ALIVE,
  • 00:12:26.535 --> 00:12:30.139
  • "THAT DECEIVER SAID, 'AFTERTHREE DAYS I AM TO RISE AGAIN.'
  • 00:12:30.172 --> 00:12:34.276
  • "THEREFORE GIVEORDERS FOR THE GRAVE
  • 00:12:34.310 --> 00:12:36.612
  • "TO BE MADE SECUREUNTIL THE THIRD DAY,
  • 00:12:36.645 --> 00:12:39.315
  • "OTHERWISE HIS DISCIPLESMAY COME AND STEAL HIM AWAY,
  • 00:12:39.348 --> 00:12:42.685
  • "AND SAY TO THE PEOPLE, 'HEHAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD,'
  • 00:12:42.718 --> 00:12:46.121
  • "AND THE LAST DECEPTION WILLBE WORSE THAN THE FIRST."
  • 00:12:46.155 --> 00:12:50.192
  • NOW UNDERSTAND, THESERELIGIOUS LEADERS
  • 00:12:50.226 --> 00:12:51.894
  • DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT HE WOULDACTUALLY RISE FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:12:51.927 --> 00:12:54.296
  • OF COURSE WHAT WEKNOW WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:12:54.330 --> 00:12:55.831
  • ON THAT SUNDAY MORNING.
  • 00:12:55.865 --> 00:12:57.233
  • THAT SUNDAY MORNING, INSPITE OF THE GUARD UNIT,
  • 00:12:57.266 --> 00:12:59.735
  • JESUS AROSE FROM THE DEAD,
  • 00:12:59.768 --> 00:13:01.904
  • JUST AS HE HADPREDICTED THAT HE WOULD.
  • 00:13:01.937 --> 00:13:04.340
  • NOW IN PREVIOUS SESSIONS,WE'VE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:13:04.373 --> 00:13:06.542
  • THE EVIDENCE THAT THERESURRECTION ACTUALLY OCCURRED.
  • 00:13:06.575 --> 00:13:10.145
  • BUT THE POINT OF THIS DISCUSSION
  • 00:13:10.179 --> 00:13:12.715
  • IS NOT SO MUCH THE HISTORICITYOF THE RESURRECTION,
  • 00:13:12.748 --> 00:13:15.918
  • BUT HOW JESUS DIFFERS FROMOTHER RELIGIOUS LEADERS.
  • 00:13:15.951 --> 00:13:19.455
  • NO OTHER RELIGIOUSLEADER IN HISTORY
  • 00:13:19.488 --> 00:13:22.625
  • WAS TRIED IN A PUBLIC TRIAL,
  • 00:13:22.658 --> 00:13:24.727
  • WAS EXECUTED BEFOREEYE WITNESSES,
  • 00:13:24.760 --> 00:13:27.863
  • WAS BURIED IN A PUBLIC PLACE,AND ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:13:27.897 --> 00:13:32.401
  • NOW YOU MAY SAY,"WELL I DON'T BELIEVE
  • 00:13:32.434 --> 00:13:33.636
  • "THE RESURRECTIONACTUALLY HAPPENED."
  • 00:13:33.669 --> 00:13:35.137
  • OKAY, BUT NOTE THIS, NO OTHERRELIGIOUS LEADER IN HISTORY
  • 00:13:35.170 --> 00:13:42.278
  • EVEN CLAIMED THAT HE WOULDRISE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:13:42.311 --> 00:13:46.315
  • THAT'S WHAT MAKESJESUS DIFFERENT
  • 00:13:46.348 --> 00:13:48.584
  • THAN THE FOUNDER OFANY OTHER RELIGION.
  • 00:13:48.617 --> 00:13:51.687
  • ONLY JESUS CLAIMS TO HAVEBEEN ABLE TO CONQUER DEATH.
  • 00:13:51.720 --> 00:13:56.058
  • NUMBER FOUR, JESUS IS UNIQUEBECAUSE JESUS ALONE CLAIMED
  • 00:13:56.091 --> 00:13:59.962
  • HE WOULD RETURN TOJUDGE THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:59.995 --> 00:14:02.665
  • DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOOTHER PHILOSOPHER,
  • 00:14:02.698 --> 00:14:04.500
  • NO OTHER RELIGIOUS LEADER,
  • 00:14:04.533 --> 00:14:05.768
  • EVER MADE THAT KINDOF GRANDIOSE CLAIM,
  • 00:14:05.801 --> 00:14:08.003
  • THAT HE WAS ACTUALLYGONNA COME BACK AND JUDGE
  • 00:14:08.037 --> 00:14:10.673
  • EVERY HUMAN BEING, WHO WASALIVE OR HAD EVER LIVED.
  • 00:14:10.706 --> 00:14:14.009
  • IN MATTHEW 25:31-34,BEFORE JESUS' DEATH,
  • 00:14:14.043 --> 00:14:17.680
  • LOOK AT WHAT HE SAID, "BUTWHEN THE SON OF MAN COMES
  • 00:14:17.713 --> 00:14:20.482
  • "IN HIS GLORY, AND ALLTHE ANGELS WITH HIM,
  • 00:14:20.516 --> 00:14:22.918
  • "THEN HE WILL SIT ONHIS GLORIOUS THRONE.
  • 00:14:22.952 --> 00:14:25.220
  • "AND ALL THE NATIONS WILLBE GATHERED BEFORE HIM,
  • 00:14:25.254 --> 00:14:28.891
  • "AND HE WILL SEPARATETHEM FROM ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:14:28.924 --> 00:14:31.393
  • "AS THE SHEPHERD SEPARATESTHE SHEEP FROM THE GOATS.
  • 00:14:31.427 --> 00:14:34.496
  • "AND HE WILL PUT THESHEEP ON HIS RIGHT,
  • 00:14:34.530 --> 00:14:36.165
  • AND THE GOATS ON HIS LEFT.
  • 00:14:36.198 --> 00:14:37.599
  • "THEN THE KING WILL SAYTO THOSE ON HIS RIGHT,
  • 00:14:37.633 --> 00:14:39.668
  • "'COME, YOU WHO AREBLESSED OF MY FATHER,
  • 00:14:39.702 --> 00:14:42.438
  • "'INHERIT THE KINGDOMPREPARED FOR YOU,
  • 00:14:42.471 --> 00:14:44.373
  • "'FROM THE FOUNDATIONOF THE WORLD.'"
  • 00:14:44.406 --> 00:14:47.376
  • NOW HERE'S A BASIC DIFFERENCEBETWEEN CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:14:47.409 --> 00:14:49.945
  • AND OTHER RELIGIONS.
  • 00:14:49.979 --> 00:14:51.513
  • OTHER RELIGIONS SAYTHAT THEIR ACCEPTANCE,
  • 00:14:51.547 --> 00:14:55.150
  • OR REJECTION BY GOD, THEIRETERNITY IN HEAVEN OR HELL,
  • 00:14:55.184 --> 00:14:59.421
  • DEPENDS UPON THEIR ACCEPTANCEOF THE FOUNDER'S GOD OR GODS.
  • 00:14:59.455 --> 00:15:05.794
  • BUT ONLY JESUS CHRISTSAID YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY
  • 00:15:05.828 --> 00:15:10.299
  • IS DEPENDENT UPON YOURACCEPTANCE OR REJECTION OF ME.
  • 00:15:10.332 --> 00:15:16.638
  • CONFUCIUS NEVER SAID THAT.
  • 00:15:16.672 --> 00:15:19.008
  • MOHAMMAD NEVER SAID YOURHEAVEN OR HELL DESTINY
  • 00:15:19.041 --> 00:15:22.511
  • DEPENDS UPON WHATYOU DO WITH ME.
  • 00:15:22.544 --> 00:15:24.980
  • BUDDHA NEVER SAID THAT.
  • 00:15:25.014 --> 00:15:28.017
  • ONLY JESUS CHRIST SAIDYOUR ETERNAL DESTINY
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:32.121
  • DEPENDS UP ON THE DECISIONYOU MAKE ABOUT ME.
  • 00:15:32.154 --> 00:15:34.723
  • AND JOHN 3:17-18, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:15:34.757 --> 00:15:37.760
  • FOR GOD DID NOT SENDTHE SON INTO THE WORLD
  • 00:15:37.793 --> 00:15:40.062
  • TO JUDGE THE WORLD,
  • 00:15:40.095 --> 00:15:41.330
  • BUT THAT THE WORLD MIGHTBE SAVED THROUGH HIM.
  • 00:15:41.363 --> 00:15:43.632
  • HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM,TALKING ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:15:43.665 --> 00:15:46.235
  • IS NOT JUDGED, BUT HEWHO DOES NOT BELIEVE
  • 00:15:46.268 --> 00:15:49.138
  • HAS BEEN JUDGEDALREADY BECAUSE, WHY?
  • 00:15:49.171 --> 00:15:51.740
  • HE'S A BAD PERSON?
  • 00:15:51.774 --> 00:15:53.042
  • DOESN'T DO ENOUGH GOOD WORKS?
  • 00:15:53.075 --> 00:15:54.476
  • NO, THE ONE WHO WILLSPEND ETERNITY IN HELL
  • 00:15:54.510 --> 00:15:56.979
  • IS JUDGED BECAUSE HE HASNOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME
  • 00:15:57.012 --> 00:16:00.849
  • OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.
  • 00:16:00.883 --> 00:16:04.319
  • IN HIS BOOK, "THE WORLD'SLIVING RELIGIONS,"
  • 00:16:04.353 --> 00:16:06.522
  • ROBERT HUME NOTESTHAT ALL NINE FOUNDERS
  • 00:16:06.555 --> 00:16:09.324
  • OF THE WORLD'S GREATESTRELIGIONS HAVE THIS IN COMMON.
  • 00:16:09.358 --> 00:16:13.929
  • ALL OF THEM WENT THROUGHA PERIOD IN THEIR LIFE
  • 00:16:13.962 --> 00:16:15.964
  • OF INTENSE DOUBT, WHEN THEYWEREN'T SURE OF WHO THEY WERE.
  • 00:16:15.998 --> 00:16:22.071
  • THEY WERE QUESTIONINGTHEIR IDENTITY.
  • 00:16:22.104 --> 00:16:23.605
  • THEY WERE LOOKING FORSOME SPIRITUAL LIGHT
  • 00:16:23.639 --> 00:16:26.708
  • TO GUIDE THEM TO TRUTH.
  • 00:16:26.742 --> 00:16:28.677
  • ONLY JESUS CHRISTNEVER WENT THROUGH
  • 00:16:28.710 --> 00:16:30.913
  • SUCH A PERIOD OF DOUBTING.
  • 00:16:30.946 --> 00:16:32.614
  • JESUS CHRIST NEVER WASLOOKING FOR SPIRITUAL LIGHT,
  • 00:16:32.648 --> 00:16:36.218
  • TO SHOW HIM THE TRUTH,BECAUSE IN FACT,
  • 00:16:36.251 --> 00:16:38.754
  • JESUS CHRIST CLAIMED TOBE THE LIGHT HIMSELF.
  • 00:16:38.787 --> 00:16:42.357
  • IN JOHN 8:12, JESUS SAID, "IAM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:16:42.391 --> 00:16:46.795
  • "HE WHO FOLLOWS ME WILLNOT WALK IN DARKNESS,
  • 00:16:46.829 --> 00:16:49.498
  • "BUT WILL HAVE THELIGHT OF LIFE."
  • 00:16:49.531 --> 00:16:52.935
  • NOW, JESUS CLAIMED TO BE GOD,
  • 00:16:52.968 --> 00:16:56.371
  • HE CLAIMED TO BEABLE TO FORGIVE SINS,
  • 00:16:56.405 --> 00:16:58.340
  • HE CLAIMED TO BE ABLETO CONQUER DEATH,
  • 00:16:58.373 --> 00:16:59.842
  • AND HE CLAIMED HEWAS COMING BACK
  • 00:16:59.875 --> 00:17:00.976
  • TO JUDGE THE WORLD ONE DAY.
  • 00:17:01.009 --> 00:17:03.879
  • THE PROBLEM WITH ALLOF THOSE CLAIMS IS
  • 00:17:03.912 --> 00:17:06.148
  • IT DOESN'T ALLOW FORTHE COMMON BELIEF TODAY
  • 00:17:06.181 --> 00:17:09.985
  • THAT JESUS WAS JUST A GOODMAN, AND NOTHING MORE.
  • 00:17:10.018 --> 00:17:14.089
  • BECAUSE YOU SEE, JESUS,BY HIS OWN WORDS,
  • 00:17:14.123 --> 00:17:16.391
  • DON'T LEAVE YOU THAT OPTION.
  • 00:17:16.425 --> 00:17:18.927
  • YOU CAN'T SAY JESUSWAS JUST A GOOD MAN,
  • 00:17:18.961 --> 00:17:21.530
  • BECAUSE JESUS CLAIMED TOBE SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT.
  • 00:17:21.563 --> 00:17:24.399
  • SO GIVEN ALL OF THESE CLAIMS,
  • 00:17:24.433 --> 00:17:26.201
  • HE CLAIMS TO BE GOD, TOBE ABLE TO FORGIVE SINS,
  • 00:17:26.235 --> 00:17:28.270
  • TO CONQUER DEATH, AND TO RETURNAND JUDGE THE WORLD ONE DAY,
  • 00:17:28.303 --> 00:17:31.840
  • YOU'RE ONLY LEFT WITH THREECHOICES ABOUT WHO JESUS WAS.
  • 00:17:31.874 --> 00:17:36.111
  • GIVEN THE FACT THAT HEMADE ALL OF THOSE CLAIMS,
  • 00:17:36.145 --> 00:17:38.213
  • ONE OPTION IS, ASC.S. LEWIS SAID,
  • 00:17:38.247 --> 00:17:40.682
  • ONE OPTION IS HE WAS A LIAR.
  • 00:17:40.716 --> 00:17:43.719
  • THAT IS JESUS CLAIMED ALL OFTHESE THINGS ABOUT HIMSELF,
  • 00:17:43.752 --> 00:17:46.688
  • BUT DEEP DOWN, HE KNEWNONE OF THEM WAS TRUE.
  • 00:17:46.722 --> 00:17:50.826
  • NOW IF THAT'S THE CASE,
  • 00:17:50.859 --> 00:17:52.060
  • JESUS WAS THE GREATESTRELIGIOUS CHARLATAN
  • 00:17:52.094 --> 00:17:54.963
  • THAT HAS EVER LIVED.
  • 00:17:54.997 --> 00:17:58.033
  • SO THAT'S AN OPTION,HE WAS A LIAR,
  • 00:17:58.066 --> 00:17:59.501
  • HE CLAIMED THINGS ABOUTHIMSELF HE KNEW WERE NOT TRUE.
  • 00:17:59.535 --> 00:18:02.638
  • HOW MANY OF YOU BELIEVE JESUSCHRIST WAS A LIAR, ANYBODY?
  • 00:18:02.671 --> 00:18:07.876
  • OKAY, IF YOU DON'TBELIEVE HE WAS A LIAR,
  • 00:18:07.910 --> 00:18:10.412
  • THE SECOND OPTIONIS HE WAS LUNATIC.
  • 00:18:10.445 --> 00:18:14.383
  • NOW THAT IS, HE CLAIMEDTHINGS ABOUT HIMSELF,
  • 00:18:14.416 --> 00:18:16.518
  • THAT HE ACTUALLYTHOUGHT WERE TRUE.
  • 00:18:16.552 --> 00:18:18.253
  • HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOD, HETHOUGHT HE COULD FORGIVE SINS,
  • 00:18:18.287 --> 00:18:21.290
  • AND COME BACK FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:18:21.323 --> 00:18:22.858
  • HE MADE ALL OF THESE CLAIMS,HE THOUGHT THEY WERE TRUE,
  • 00:18:22.891 --> 00:18:25.160
  • BUT IN FACT, THEY WEREN'T TRUE,
  • 00:18:25.194 --> 00:18:26.662
  • THAT MEANS HE WASA RAVING LUNATIC.
  • 00:18:26.695 --> 00:18:28.864
  • AS LEWIS SAYS, HE SHOULDA BEENLOCKED UP IN A MENTAL ASYLUM.
  • 00:18:28.897 --> 00:18:33.602
  • NOW KNOWING WHAT YOUKNOW ABOUT JESUS,
  • 00:18:33.635 --> 00:18:36.438
  • HOW MANY OF YOU THINKHE WAS A LUNATIC?
  • 00:18:36.471 --> 00:18:38.407
  • HE'S COMPLETELY OUT OF HIS MIND.
  • 00:18:38.440 --> 00:18:42.144
  • OKAY, IF HE'S NOT A LIAR,IF HE'S NOT A LUNATIC,
  • 00:18:42.177 --> 00:18:47.950
  • THEN THE ONLY OTHER OPTIONIS HE WAS WHO HE SAID HE IS.
  • 00:18:47.983 --> 00:18:52.087
  • HE'S LORD, JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.
  • 00:18:52.120 --> 00:18:56.625
  • THAT IS THE ONLY OPTION.
  • 00:18:56.658 --> 00:19:01.029
  • WHAT MAKES CHRISTIANITYDIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER
  • 00:19:01.063 --> 00:19:03.432
  • RELIGION, HOW CAN I KNOWCHRISTIANITY'S THE RIGHT
  • 00:19:03.465 --> 00:19:05.968
  • RELIGION? FIRST OF ALL, THEUNIQUENESS OF JESUS,
  • 00:19:06.001 --> 00:19:07.936
  • SECONDLY, THE TEACHINGOF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:19:07.970 --> 00:19:11.173
  • NOW, STAY WITH ME ON THIS,
  • 00:19:11.206 --> 00:19:12.808
  • IF IN FACT, YOU ACCEPTTHAT JESUS IS LORD,
  • 00:19:12.841 --> 00:19:16.044
  • THEN DOESN'T IT STAND TO REASON
  • 00:19:16.078 --> 00:19:17.579
  • YOU HAVE TO TRUSTEVERYTHING THAT HE SAID?
  • 00:19:17.613 --> 00:19:20.549
  • IF JESUS CHRIST IS REALLY GOD,
  • 00:19:20.582 --> 00:19:22.918
  • THEN EVERYTHING HE SAYS ISTRUE, EVERYBODY AGREE WITH THAT?
  • 00:19:22.951 --> 00:19:27.155
  • SO IF EVERYTHINGJESUS SAYS IS TRUE,
  • 00:19:27.189 --> 00:19:29.458
  • THE NATURAL QUESTIONIS WHAT DID JESUS THINK
  • 00:19:29.491 --> 00:19:31.627
  • ABOUT CHRISTIANITY BEINGTHE ONLY RIGHT RELIGION?
  • 00:19:31.660 --> 00:19:35.197
  • DID JESUS BELIEVE ALLRELIGIONS LEAD TO GOD?
  • 00:19:35.230 --> 00:19:38.267
  • OR DID JESUS BELIEVE THEREWAS ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD?
  • 00:19:38.300 --> 00:19:40.902
  • WHEN YOU LOOK ATTHE WORDS OF JESUS,
  • 00:19:40.936 --> 00:19:42.304
  • YOU FIND SEVERAL THINGSTHAT WERE VERY CLEAR
  • 00:19:42.337 --> 00:19:43.972
  • THAT JESUS TAUGHT.
  • 00:19:44.006 --> 00:19:44.906
  • FIRST OF ALL, JESUS TAUGHT
  • 00:19:44.940 --> 00:19:46.441
  • THERE ARE ONLY TWO POSSIBLEETERNAL DESTINATIONS FOR PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:46.475 --> 00:19:50.312
  • ONLY TWO POSSIBLE DESTINATIONS,
  • 00:19:50.345 --> 00:19:52.047
  • FOR WHERE YOU GO WHEN YOU DIE.
  • 00:19:52.080 --> 00:19:53.815
  • IN MATTHEW 25:46, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:19:53.849 --> 00:19:56.251
  • "THE UNRIGHTEOUS WILL GOAWAY INTO ETERNAL PUNISHMENT,
  • 00:19:56.285 --> 00:19:59.855
  • "BUT THE RIGHTEOUSINTO ETERNAL LIFE."
  • 00:19:59.888 --> 00:20:02.524
  • JESUS DIDN'T SAY EVERYBODY'SGOING TO THE SAME PLACE
  • 00:20:02.557 --> 00:20:05.694
  • WHEN THEY DIE,THAT'S INCLUSIVISM.
  • 00:20:05.727 --> 00:20:07.629
  • THAT'S A POPULARPHILOSOPHY TODAY.
  • 00:20:07.663 --> 00:20:10.799
  • YOU HEAR THESE NEARDEATH EXPERIENCES,
  • 00:20:10.832 --> 00:20:12.934
  • AND WE'RE GONNA TALKABOUT THOSE NEXT SESSION,
  • 00:20:12.968 --> 00:20:16.571
  • ABOUT WHAT ARE THOSE NEAR DEATHEXPERIENCES REALLY TELL US?
  • 00:20:16.605 --> 00:20:19.341
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY, "WELLI SAW THIS BRIGHT LIGHT,
  • 00:20:19.374 --> 00:20:21.743
  • "IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT FAITHI'M IN, THIS BRIGHT LIGHT
  • 00:20:21.777 --> 00:20:24.246
  • "WAS LEADING ME TOWARD GOD."
  • 00:20:24.279 --> 00:20:27.049
  • MIGHT I REMIND YOUTHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:20:27.082 --> 00:20:28.617
  • SATAN APPEARS ASAN ANGEL OF LIGHT.
  • 00:20:28.650 --> 00:20:31.353
  • HE IS A DECEIVER, AND MANY OFTHE BOOKS BEING WRITTEN TODAY
  • 00:20:31.386 --> 00:20:34.189
  • ARE GREAT DECEPTIONS THATLEAD PEOPLE TO THINK,
  • 00:20:34.222 --> 00:20:36.425
  • WELL WE'RE ALL GOING TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:20:36.458 --> 00:20:37.726
  • REGARDLESS OF WHATWE DO OR BELIEVE.
  • 00:20:37.759 --> 00:20:39.594
  • NO, JESUS SAID WE'RE NOTALL GOING TO THE SAME PLACE.
  • 00:20:39.628 --> 00:20:42.197
  • HE SAID THERE ARETWO DESTINATIONS,
  • 00:20:42.230 --> 00:20:43.932
  • SOME WILL SPEND ETERNITYIN ETERNAL PUNISHMENT,
  • 00:20:43.965 --> 00:20:47.002
  • OTHERS, THE RIGHTEOUS,IN ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 00:20:47.035 --> 00:20:49.805
  • SECONDLY, JESUS TAUGHTTHE MAJORITY OF MANKIND
  • 00:20:49.838 --> 00:20:53.008
  • WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN HELL.
  • 00:20:53.041 --> 00:20:56.111
  • NOT ONLY DID JESUS SAY
  • 00:20:56.144 --> 00:20:57.346
  • THERE ARE ONLY TWOPOSSIBLE DESTINATIONS,
  • 00:20:57.379 --> 00:20:59.047
  • HE SAID MOST PEOPLE WILL ENDUP IN THE WRONG DESTINATION.
  • 00:20:59.081 --> 00:21:04.820
  • IN MATTHEW 7:13-14, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:21:04.853 --> 00:21:07.723
  • "ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE,
  • 00:21:07.756 --> 00:21:10.525
  • "FOR THE GATE IS WIDE,AND THE WAY IS BROAD
  • 00:21:10.559 --> 00:21:13.095
  • "THAT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION,
  • 00:21:13.128 --> 00:21:14.563
  • "AND THERE ARE MANYWHO ENTER THROUGH IT.
  • 00:21:14.596 --> 00:21:17.165
  • "BUT THE GATE IS SMALL,AND THE WAY IS NARROW
  • 00:21:17.199 --> 00:21:19.735
  • "THAT LEADS TO LIFE, ANDTHERE ARE FEW WHO FIND IT."
  • 00:21:19.768 --> 00:21:24.539
  • AND TODAY, THE COMMON WISDOMIS, NOT THAT YOU'VE HEARD THIS,
  • 00:21:24.573 --> 00:21:27.843
  • DIFFERENT RELIGIONS IN THE WORLD
  • 00:21:27.876 --> 00:21:29.144
  • THAT REPRESENT DIFFERENT PATHS
  • 00:21:29.177 --> 00:21:31.346
  • UP THE SAME MOUNTAIN OF TRUTH.
  • 00:21:31.380 --> 00:21:33.682
  • PEOPLE ARE JUST FOLLOWINGA DIFFERENT PATH
  • 00:21:33.715 --> 00:21:35.851
  • UP THE SAME MOUNTAIN OF TRUTH,
  • 00:21:35.884 --> 00:21:37.219
  • AND WHEN WE GET TOTHE SUMMIT OF TRUTH,
  • 00:21:37.252 --> 00:21:39.020
  • WE'LL ALL DISCOVER, IN FACT,
  • 00:21:39.054 --> 00:21:40.555
  • WE WERE ALL WORSHIPINGTHE SAME GOD.
  • 00:21:40.589 --> 00:21:43.625
  • I HEARD ANOTHER ONELATELY, SOMEBODY SAID,
  • 00:21:43.658 --> 00:21:46.395
  • "DIFFERENT RELIGIONSOF THE WORLD,
  • 00:21:46.428 --> 00:21:47.696
  • "THEY'RE KINDA LIKEDIFFERENT TRIBUTARIES,

  • "THAT ARE ALL FLOWINGINTO THE SAME RIVER,
  • 00:21:50.399 --> 00:21:52.901
  • "LEADING TO THESAME DESTINATION."
  • 00:21:52.934 --> 00:21:56.071
  • NOW THAT SOUNDS REALNICE, BUT IS IT TRUE?
  • 00:21:56.104 --> 00:21:59.775
  • WHAT DID JESUS SAY ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:21:59.808 --> 00:22:01.276
  • DID HE SAY THERE ARE MANYPATHS UP THE SAME MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:22:01.309 --> 00:22:03.812
  • THAT LEAD TO GOD?
  • 00:22:03.845 --> 00:22:05.013
  • DID HE SAY THEREARE MANY TRIBUTARIES
  • 00:22:05.046 --> 00:22:06.481
  • THAT FLOW INTO THE SAME RIVERTHAT LEAD TO ETERNAL LIFE?
  • 00:22:06.515 --> 00:22:09.818
  • NO, JESUS DID NOT SAY THEREARE MULTIPLE PATHS IN LIFE.
  • 00:22:09.851 --> 00:22:14.189
  • IN FACT, HE SAID THERE AREONLY TWO PATHS IN LIFE.
  • 00:22:14.222 --> 00:22:17.626
  • THERE IS THE NARROW PATH,
  • 00:22:17.659 --> 00:22:19.428
  • THAT LEADS PEOPLE TO GOD,AND FEW ARE ON THAT PATH.
  • 00:22:19.461 --> 00:22:22.864
  • AND THE ONLY OTHERPATHWAY IS THE BROAD PATH,
  • 00:22:22.898 --> 00:22:26.034
  • THAT LEADS PEOPLE TOHELL, AND DESTRUCTION,
