There are two things that cause me doubt in regards to my faith. The first is the exclusive nature of my faith’s story. I must admit that when I hear people criticizing the belief that faith in Jesus is the only way to be saved from hell, I must admit it gets me thinking. It does seem a bit arrogant, narrow minded and foolish to believe such a thing. Yet this is the Christian story. “Salvation is found in no one ...
