The Name is a lightning rod because The Name represents the division of life between good and evil, God and Satan, light and darkness, righteousness and sin, heaven and hell. The Name shouts out a choice: Whom will you serve, give your life to, depend on? Rebellious, self-willed, sinful people want to retain the right to decide themselves what way they will take. Jesus denies this option. Speaking on His behalf, the apostle Peter said, “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
Jesus is gentle, but He is not weak. He loves the sinner but is absolutely intolerant of sin. He is not a negotiator. He is Lord!
The son of Rev. Billy Graham and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association assures readers that in these days of religious confusion and cultural relativism, that there are absolutes in the kingdom of God, and that our salvation lies in the name of Jesus.
