It is very popular to say “everything is relative
It is very popular to say “everything is relative,” “all religions are the same,” “there are many ways to god,” and “everyone has the right to believe whatever they want.” But Jesus made claims such as the following:
John 14:6: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (NIV).
Matthew 7:13-14: “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (NIV).
Is it possible to reconcile the popular beliefs listed with the claims Jesus made? Why or why not?
1. How would you explain how a good, loving, and all-powerful God allows suffering and evil in his creation?
2. Cite a specific example of suffering and/or evil that you have seen or experienced.
