The “Bourne Again” Ultimatum

Screenshot (1545)

Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”  (John 3:3, NIV 1984).

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  (John 14:6, NIV 1984).

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them:  “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 4:8, 12, NIV 1984).

My Musings – Ultimatum, a final demand or statement of terms that if not met, will end a relationship or otherwise result in some serious consequence.  Unambiguous, not open to more than one interpretation.

Ultimatum – Unless he is born again.  Through me. Must be saved.

Unambiguous – No one can see.  I am the way.  No one can come.  Found in no one else.  No other name.

There can be no relationship with God without coming to Christ (born again).  Otherwise, the consequences are quite serious.  Eternal separation.  Eternal damnation.  There is no other interpretation or conclusion that can be reached.

My Advice – Meet the terms.  Come to Christ and be born again.  There is no other way.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
