Christianity comes from the same Light or Source as do all true Prophets of God. Christ is a branch of the vine, and all reside in the Truth - those who reject the other braches of the vine, are not necessarily cut off, they just are mislead by their clergy. When Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life â€“ no man comes to the Father but through me â€“ in context he was speaking to the clergy of the covenant of the Old Testament â€“ saying that he is the fulfillment of the Law â€“ Jesus was not making a comment on the other branches of the true vine that gives the Words of Eternal Life to those who hear. In truth no man can reject any prophet of God without rejecting God â€“ but this sin falls mainly to the clergy of various faiths, and most laymen simply are passively resisting the lies that other faiths are not as valid as their own. To become clergy though â€“ one seems to have to adopt this exclusive opinion that stems from literalism and fundamentalism â€“ so sad, and it is time this changed.
