JESUS IS THE TRUTH! Many people in the world from many different religions love Jesus. Some are in groups that follow Mohammad, others follow the Pope, others follow other religions or religious leaders under the umbrella of Christianity, both living and dead, etc. If people love Jesus because God "DRAWS"[Jn 6:44] them to Jesus, we should not “JUDGE” [Mt 7:1] them because of their religious group. We should continue to allow God to help them His way.  Jesus says, “I AM … THE TRUTH” [Jn 14:6]. In most of the two thousand years since Jesus walked the earth, unlike today, most of the people could not read. They had to depend on their religious leaders to tell them about Jesus and read the bible for them. Even as more people begin to be able to read, for hundreds of years the bible was only available in a language people did not understand. This situation may have helped religious leaders feel free to insert manmade teachings and doctrines. Fortunately today most people can read and most have access to a bible in their own language. Jesus advises us, “IF YOU OBEY MY TEACHING … YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE” [Jn 8:31-32 GN]. Yes, many religions and religious leaders hold on to their manmade doctrines like they are fact, even though they frequently have difficulty explaining them. If a person is criticized for following what Jesus teaches, we should not assume that others know more than Jesus and we should not argue but rather simply say, “I can read”.  And continue to follow “THE TRUTH” which is Jesus. We can be confident that people who love Jesus and obey His teachings will be set “FREE” from manmade teachings and doctrines.
