An uproar involving a chaplin working with Washington Nationals players made the news toward the end of last season.
So, it is apparently "not nice" for a Christian to suggest that Jews (or anyone else, but especially Jews it appears) are not going to heaven because they don't accept Christ. Now, last time I checked, the primary, if not the only, indisputable tennant of the Christian religion was that Christ was the messiah and the only way to heaven. According to our holy scripture, Christ himself claims to be the only way. Only means, well, only, doesn't it? And being the only way doesn't justify harming or hating unbelievers. In fact, Christ made that pretty clear as well.
So, what is the problem?
Ok, let me ask this way. Jews say they are the chosen people of God. To the Jew, to be atoned for one's sins, one must be Jewish and follow the very specific ritual for the Day of Attonement. Christians do not follow the Law strictly as Orthodox and other Jews do.
Are Christians NOT God's chosen people? Are Christians, who are not included in the Day of Attonement, forgiven of sins? Are Christians going to get the same after life rewards as Jews?
I don't think there is any doubt that Muslims have similar "only way" beliefs.
I doubt the answer of the Jew would be any different.
Maybe someone just needs to ask the same question of the Jewish leaders. Why are you God's chosen people? Why do you think you are better than everyone else? Does you belief justify persecution of Muslims and Christians?
I just don't see what the big deal is when any religious leader says he or she has the right answer and the only right answer (at least, as is almost always the case, when not accompanied by the advocasy of violence against non-believers). I would expect them to say that. Otherwise, why bother belonging to that religious community. The health care benefits?
So what is the big deal?
