The Many Expressions of God

August 24, “The Many Expressions of God” Matthew 16:13-20 “Who do you say that I am?”

Tonight a young Muslim boy asked me, “Are you like other Christians and think I am going to hell?” Smiling at him, I said, “You know buddy, Jesus is just one of the many expressions of God, and God comes to each of us in his own way.”

Through all of our teachings of religion God speaks of loving our neighbor as we love ourselves. That is the heart of all the major religious teachings. What “man”, and I mean it is basically “men” have done is use the various religions for their own violent purposes, but God speaks love when we boil it down.

My expression is Christ, my young friend’s is through the Muslim way; others Jewish, and so on–but ultimately there is one God whose love shines through. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
