Jesus said … “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
This afternoon I read a comment on a “newspaper” website in which Jesus’s words above were snidely and crudely ridiculed. It was clear that the writer of the comment didn’t like the idea of being told that there is an exclusive “truth” and an exclusive “way” that might be contrary to his own preferences.
There was more than a hint of “how dare Jesus insist that He is the only way”.
And “what right does He have to say those who don’t want to follow Him are wrong?”
After reading the comment a common traffic sign came to my mind. I think it partly illustrates the relevance of what Jesus said.
Signs like this have probably stopped many drivers from making a very dangerous mistake when they were about to put their own life and the lives of others at risk.
But it’s a sign that could easily be ignored and ridiculed by those who know their own opinion is more reliable and authoritative than the qualified authorities who built the road.
