     One Sunday after a worship service, the pastor was having a conversation with a college student.  The student said, “I thought I heard you say that Jesus is the only name under heaven by which people can be saved.  Did you actually say that?”  “Actually,” said the pastor, “the Bible says that.”  “Wow!” responded the student.   “That’s awfully narrow and intolerant of other opinions and faiths, don’t you think?”  The pastor asked, “What is your major in college?”  “Math,” replied the student.  “What is two plus two?” asked the pastor.  “Four.”  “Are you sure it’s not three or five?”  “I’m sure,” said the student.  “But,” said the pastor, “couldn’t someone approach the problem from a different perspective and come up with a different answer?”  “No,” said the student.  “Regardless of one’s perspective, the answer is four.  Unless you get that basic computation right, all your more complicated computations will be wrong.”  “Ah,” said the pastor, “that’s the way it is with faith.  Unless you get the basics right, like Jesus is the way, all further computations will be flawed.”

 

   “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
