The famous American evangelist, Billy Graham has said that the Bible shows that Jesus Christ is different from every other religious leader in history.
In a Q&A published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on Tuesday, a person asked Graham what makes Jesus different from other spiritual figures.
“Why is Jesus any different from every other religious leader who ever lived?” the person asked. “I don’t think it really matters what you believe about God, because I think all roads eventually lead to the same place anyway.”
Graham replied that if Jesus were indeed any other faith leader, then the soon-to-be 98-year-old preacher would agree with the person’s conclusion about all routes eventually leading to the same destination.
“But Jesus wasn’t just another religious leader or philosopher— and the reason, the Bible says, is because He was God in human form,” wrote Graham.
“In other words, when Jesus was born, God Himself was taking on human flesh and becoming a man. Think of it: when Jesus walked on this Earth, God Himself was living among us!”
Graham went on to respond that Jesus proved his distinction via his deeds while on Earth as well as his resurrection from the dead.
“I urge you to look with an open mind and heart at Jesus Christ as He is found in the Gospels of the New Testament,” continued Graham.
“When you do, you’ll not only discover who He is, but that He loves you and wants to come live within you by His Holy Spirit. Don’t let anything keep you from Him.
This is not the first time that Graham has gotten a question about the difference between Christianity and other religions.
