aren't such beliefs rather bigoted and narrow-minded?
Quite the contrary, Jesus and His life and teachings are
absolutely universal, open to all men, and are anything
but "narrow-minded" or "bigoted"! In
fact, it was Jesus' proclamation that "whoever
believes in Me shall not perish!", that so
infuriated the closed-minded and racially-prejudiced
religious leaders and rabbis of His Own Jewish religion!
Jesus frequently helped and mingled with so-called
"pagan" Gentiles, those whom His Own Jewish
people had been taught by their leaders to despise and
look down upon.
The religious leaders and teachers of Jesus' day were
narrow-minded in every sense of the word. They were sour,
intolerant and legalistic, and felt that they alone had
an absolute monopoly on God and His Kingdom. It was the
fact that Jesus told them to their faces that the Kingdom
of God would be taken from them and opened up to
others--to nations from the East and from the West, to
all people throughout the entire World--that infuriated
them so much that they determined to destroy
Him.--Matthew 8:11 12; 21: 42,43.
God sent us His Son to show all men, all nations, all
people, what He Himself is like, to freely bring us His
Own great Love! "For God so loved the World (you and
me) that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus), so that
whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have
everlasting life."--John 3:16.
