Q: The Bible tells us that Jesus is the only way to have a saving relationship with God. That means that Jesus is saying that all of the other ways of getting into heaven won’t work. He is also saying that the Christian faith is the only “true” faith. Do you agree or disagree> Does it seem fair or realistic? How do you know what you should actually believe?
Response: “Christian faith is the only true faith, but if you were never exposed to Christianity why can’t you go to heaven? There must be another way for people from remote areas to go to heaven.”
Response: “I believe there are many paths to heaven, but the path I follow is the path of Jesus.”

Q: Scripture tells us that God uses all things, the good and bad, to bring “good” into a person’s life. That might mean that an illness someone endures could somehow be used for good. Is it possible that some of the illnesses and horrors of this life can actually produce something good somewhere, in someones life? What are some of the things God could do that would prove to you that God is capable of bringing good from bad situations?
Response: “Ease my pain …”
Response: “Turn my addictions into faith …”

MATTHEW 18:12 What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray?
What’s he sayin? Jesus is saying that each person God has created (that’s you) are of unlimited value. Because of His love for you and your tremendous value He would leave everyone else just to find you and bring you back home!
Q: Knowing this unlimited worth God sees in you, how does that make you feel? How believable is this tremendous love of Christ?
Response: What if God told the single sheep to leave the group and follow that path?
Response: I’ve lived a good life, yet it is hard to understand how and why I need to be forgiven, especially at such a price.
