God’s purpose for the sphere of religion is the extension of mercy and the promotion of reconciliation between those who have had relationships broken. This is to occur horizontally between human beings, and vertically between individuals and God. Competing religious worldviews contend for the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere. Without falling into a contentious spirit, we are to enter this marketplace of religious ideas and clearly display why the gospel of Christ is unique. In fact, the gospel is the only means of enduring grace, for it alone makes lasting reconciliation possible through the sacrificial love displayed on the cross.
