Quote# 53168

[Please help me by reporting people who give answers to question with something like "Jesus is the way the truth and the light".

That is not a answer and furthermore I just don't care.]

Jesus IS the way, the truth, and the light.

It is appropriate to answer questions with this answer when it is necessary. He is the only way to Heaven and there is NO other way.

Fundies lack the ability to follow directions? No wonder they were homeschooled. They never would have made it through the SAT's.

Prove heaven.

Not everyone thinks that Jesus was any more than simply a man, so that answer is useless to the person receiving it regardless of how true it feels to the answerer, or how utterly weird it seems that a person doesn't automatically believe in sin or God or the resurrection. Or even that the belief will be obtained in perfect measure simply by hearing that tired phrase for the thousandth time.

Trolling for the bible.

Yer doing it right.

"Is this the way to Amarillo ?"

"Jesus IS the way, the truth, and the light"

Yes I can see how that works

Obviously he's never heard of the concept of the virtuous pagan.

-Hello, thanks for calling McDonalds, can I help you?-

Why, yes. Could you tell me how to get to your store? I'm new in town.

-Jesus IS the way, the truth, and the light.-

For fuck sakes.

Hint: It's never necessary, and you look like a tool when you do it.

It's never necessary. Thast's not an answer, it's an opinion. And an incorrect opinion at that. Heaven is a fairy tale; it's that simple.

Pssss... Guys, I found a back way into heaven. It's called Humanism. Don't tell the fundies that we are going to crash their party.

Jesus is a myth, and so is heaven.

I fail to see how this is fundie. That question was asking for it especially when it doesn't go into much detail in why people should report those answers.

And a rating of 4.83 is way too high for something like this.

Smells Like a Monkey

Is this why there are so many christians trapped in dark caves?

11/26/2008 3:32:32 PM



How is

"Jesus IS the way, the truth, and the light.

He is the only way to Heaven and there is NO other way."

not fundie? Though I agree a rating of over 4 is way too high.

"He is the only way to Heaven and there is NO other way. "

Christianity is a lie. The koran says so.

Pedantic Twit

@Scooby71 :

Because that's what Christ is reported to have said in the New Testament. Catholics hear it every week in mass, fundies hear it every day from their Ma and Pa, and everyone else hears it every day from the previous two groups.

11/26/2008 4:04:56 PM


The passage says, "The way, the truth and the LIFE". Stupid Christian is trying to sell others on a book he hasn't even read.

11/26/2008 4:06:35 PM

I see his point, it is a bit of a braindead, rote answer. But c'mon man do you really expect highly intellectual answers on Yahoo?

11/26/2008 4:09:21 PM


"He is the only way to Heaven and there is NO other way."

Evidence, please. Both for the existence of such a place as "heaven" and for Jesus being the only way in.

"In this city if you ask a shopkeeper for change, he will argue with you about whether the Son is begotten or unbegotten. If you inquire about the quality of bread, the baker will answer, 'The Father is greater, the Son is less.' And if you ask the bath attendant to draw your bath, he will tell you that the Son was created out of nothing." – Gregory of Nyssa, fourth-century saint, on the Arian controversy in Constantinople.

It's not an appropriate way to answer questions with this, because in most cases it would be a non sequitor.

11/26/2008 4:26:40 PM


I love using this example to that whole "Jesus is the ONLY way to heaven" schtick.

First, quote Joshua 24:15 -

"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Emphasize the "my house." Ask them if they think Joshua is talking about the building he lives in, or if he is talking about his family, servants, slaves, etc.

Then quote John 14:2 -

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

Ask if they think Jesus is talking about a building, or God's "family" (refer back to Joshua). Point out that a "house" normally does NOT contain additional buildings - but a family can have many houses, all of which can be different. Point out that a clear interpretation of this verse (by using Joshua 24:15 as precedent) is that Jesus is saying that in God's family there are many "mansions" (or religions), and that Jesus is preparing a NEW mansion (or religion) for his followers. Then emphasize how Jesus himself said, "If it were NOT SO, I would have told you." Thus, Christianity is simply one "mansion" for God's "house".

Watching their heads explode is hilarious. :)

"[Jesus] is the only way to Heaven and there is NO other way."

No, I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere that there is also a stairway.

@Lucilius: And today, discussions on the great religious debates of our day can be found in all manner of forums, not merely those dedicated to religious and philosophical matters. Ecclesiastes 1:9 comes to mind.
