The Open Door is the Only Door: The Singularity of the Gospel in a Pluralistic Age
Many want a Savior; some even recognize their need for one. However, once the abstract becomes concrete, once the general becomes specific, once the “any Savior” becomes an “only Savior,” Christianity loses any and all worldly luster. Nonetheless, Al Mohler asserts this exclusivity, while widely detested, must be upheld with courage and conviction, especially in the coming years: “The open door is the only door,” he says, “and the only door is the open door.”
