“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must [or can] be saved.” (Acts 4:12, NIV 1984).
My Musings – Justice and mercy. Wrath and grace. Incompatible to say the least. Like parallel lines never to meet. Until the cross, where they intersected. Only God could do that. But it cost Him a lot. Why then would He pay that price if there were other (cheaper) ways?
My Advice – We should be thankful that God provided any way. Still many insist there must be other ways. Don’t argue the point.
