Finger of God

I was just watching this movie on YouTube. It is called "Finger of God". It is amazing! I am on part 6/10 right now, about an hour in. It is all about 'crazy' miracles God has been doing around the globe.

A quote from a Monk who was dead for three days, and then sat up in his casket, at his own funeral- "It's all a lie!!! I saw our ancestors burning and being tortured in some kind of fire! I also saw Buddha and many other Buddhist holy men. They were all in a sea of fire. We must listen to the Christians! They're the only ones who know the truth!"

Now, this may seem obvious to most Christians, as it is a widely held belief that you must believe in Jesus to get into heaven... but there was always that part of me that likes to believe that as long as one holds loyally to their idea of their God that it might be enough. I know that this sounds stupid, given the entire Old Testament, where idolatry is explicitly damned. For some reason I never quite make the correlation between 'all other religions' being the same as idolatry! Our God and Bible is definitely not pleased with individuals worshiping any God to the best of their ability, as I was tempted to believe. I think our culture encourages this type of theology, for the sake of religious tolerance, religious respect and for the sake of discouraging public evangelism. I was a sucker!

This is a huge wake up call for me. There goes my theology!!
