دروازہ میں ہوںاگر کو ئی شخص مجھ سے داخل ہو تو نجات پاویگا۔ ا ور اندر باہر آئے جائے گا۔ یوحنا ۱۰باب ۹آیت


ایک عالم کا قول ہے کہ بہشت کا دروازہ اتنا چوڑا اور کشادہ ہے کہ اگرتمام دنیا کے آدمی ایک دم سے اُس میں داخل ہونا چاہیں۔ تو بلا تکلیف و کشمکش داخل ہو سکتے ہیں۔ لیکن وہ اِس قدر تنگ بھی ہے۔ کہ کو ئی شخص ایک رتی بھر گناہ اپنے ساتھ لے کر اُس میں داخل نہیں ہو سکتا۔ یہ سچ ہے کہ خداوند مسیح جو آسمان میں داخل ہونے کا دروازہ ہے۔ گنہگاروں کا دوست ہے۔ مگر گناہ کا دوست ہر گز نہیں ہے۔ وہ یسؔوع یعنے اپنے لوگوں کو اُن کے گناہوں سے بچانے والا ہے۔ نہ کہ اُن کو گناہوں میں بچانے والا ہے۔ اکثر لوگ نادانی سے ایسا سمجھتے اور کہتے ہیں ۔ کہ درحالیکہ مسیح نے تمام جہاں کے آدمیوں کے لئے۔ خصوصاً مسیحّیوں کے لئے اپنی جان کو کفاّرہ میں دیدیا ہے۔ تو اب وہ جو چاہیں کریں۔ کیونکہ اُن کے گناہوں کا کفارہ تو ہو ہی چُکا ہے۔ اُن سے کچھ باز پرس نہوگی۔ لیکن ایسا غلط خیال کرنے والے لوگ خداوند مسیح کے اس فرمان سے ناواقف معلوم ہوتے ہیں۔ جو اُس نے اپنے پیروؤں کی نسبت فرمایا ہے۔ کہ جہاں کا نور میں ہوں۔ جو میری پیروی کرتا ہے۔ تاریکی میں نہ چلے گا۔ بلکہ زندگی کا نور پائے گا۔ یوحنا ۸ ۔ ۱۲۔


سند کی آیت مندرجۂ بالا سے یہ بھی معلوم ہوتا ہے کہ نجات پانے اور آسمان میں داخل ہونے کا صرف یہی ایک طریقہ ہے کہ گنہگار انسان توبہ کرے۔ اور خداوند یسوع مسیح پر ایمان لائے۔ اور اس طریقہ کے سوا أور کو ئی صورت نجات پانے اور آسمان میں داخل ہونے کی ہرگز نہیں ہے۔ ہاں ایک صورت اور بھی ہے اور وہ یہ ہے کہ انسان اپنی پیدایش سے موت تک کو ئی گناہ عمداً و سہواً نہ کرے۔ اور خدا کے سارے اوامرا و نواہی کی تمام و کمال متابعت کرے۔ مگر ایسا کو ئی فرد بشر بنی آدم میں بجز مسیح کے نہ ہوا اور نہوگا۔ ہم نے بعض اشخاص کو اِس خیال میں ُمبتلا پایا۔ کہ وہ لوگ جو خدا کے طالب ہیں۔ خواہ کسی مذہب میں رہیں۔ اُس کے حضور میں ضرور پہنچیں گے۔ اور نجات و مقبولیت حاصل کریں گے۔ اور اپنے اِس خیال کی تائید میں مثلاً کہتے ہیں کہ فرض کرو کہ ایک محصور شہر کے چاروں سمت کے بڑے دروازے موجود ہیں۔ اور لوگ ہر دروازہ سے داخل ہو کر بازار کے چوک میں ۔ جو صدر مقام ہے پہنچ جاتے ہیں۔ اُن کو یہ کہنا اور مجبور کرنا کہ سب ایک ہی دروازہ سے داخل ہوں۔ زبردستی کی بات معلوم ہوتی۔ یہ مثال بعض تیز طبع اشخاص نے بوقت بازاری وعظ کے ہمارے سامنے پیش بھی کی ہے۔ جس کا سادہ اور عام فہم یہ جواب اُن کو دیا گیا۔ کہ کسی شہر کے دروازہ اور آسمان کے دروازہ میں فرق عظیم یہ ہے کہ شہر کے ایک دروازہ سے چاروں سمت کے دُنیوی مسافروں کا گزرنا مشکل ہے۔ لیکن آسمانی مسافروں کے گزرنے کے لئے بہشت کا دروازہ دشوار گزار اور تنگ نہیں ہے۔ اور وہ سب کے سب بلا تکلیف و کشمکش اُس سے داخل ہو سکتے ہیں۔ کسی زمینی شہر کے دروازہ کو آسمانی یروشلم سے ہر گز کچھ مطابقت و مناسبت نہیں ہے۔ ہاں داخلہ کا ٹکٹ ہر ایک آسمانی مسافر کے پاس ہونا ضرور ہے۔ اور یہ ٹکٹ وہ صحیح اور بے ریا ایمان اُس نجات دہندہ خداوند پر رکھنا ہے جس نے فرمایا کہ دروازہ میں ہوں۔ اِس دروازہ کو چھوڑ کر اگر کو ئی شخص کسی دوسری راہ سے آسمان میں داخل حاصل کرنا چاہے وہ یقیناً چور اور بٹمار ہے۔ اور جو کچھ انجام ایسے شخص کا ہوگا وہ معلوم۔

Ehrman Author, ‘Forged: Writing in the Name of God—Why the Bible’s Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are’ Apart from the most rabid fundamentalists among us, nearly everyone admits that the Bible might contain errors — a faulty creation story here, a historical mistake there, a contradiction or two in some other place. But is it possible that the problem is worse than that — that the Bible actually contains lies? Most people wouldn’t put it that way, since the Bible is, after all, sacred Scripture for millions on our planet. But good Christian scholars of the Bible, including the top Protestant and Catholic scholars of America, will tell you that the Bible is full of lies, even if they refuse to use the term. And here is the truth: Many of the books of the New Testament were written by people who lied about their identity, claiming to be a famous apostle — Peter, Paul or James — knowing full well they were someone else. In modern parlance, that is a lie, and a book written by someone who lies about his identity is a forgery. Most modern scholars of the Bible shy away from these terms, and for understandable reasons, some having to do with their clientele. Teaching in Christian seminaries, or to largely Christian undergraduate populations, who wants to denigrate the cherished texts of Scripture by calling them forgeries built on lies? And so scholars use a different term for this phenomenon and call such books “pseudepigrapha.” You will find this antiseptic term throughout the writings of modern scholars of the Bible. It’s the term used in university classes on the New Testament, and in seminary courses, and in Ph.D. seminars. What the people who use the term do not tell you is that it literally means “writing that is inscribed with a lie.” And that’s what such writings are. Whoever wrote the New Testament book of 2 Peter claimed to be Peter. But scholars everywhere — except for our friends among the fundamentalists — will tell you that there is no way on God’s green earth that Peter wrote the book. Someone else wrote it claiming to be Peter. Scholars may also tell you that it was an acceptable practice in the ancient world for someone to write a book in the name of someone else. But that is where they are wrong. If you look at what ancient people actually said about the practice, you’ll see that they invariably called it lying and condemned it as a deceitful practice, even in Christian circles. 2 Peter was finally accepted into the New Testament because the church fathers, centuries later, were convinced that Peter wrote it. But he didn’t. Someone else did. And that someone else lied about his identity. The same is true of many of the letters allegedly written by Paul. Most scholars will tell you that whereas seven of the 13 letters that go under Paul’s name are his, the other six are not. Their authors merely claimed to be Paul. In the ancient world, books like that were labeled as pseudoi — lies. This may all seem like a bit of antiquarian curiosity, especially for people whose lives don’t depend on the Bible or even people of faith for whom biblical matters are a peripheral interest at best. But in fact, it matters sometimes. Whoever wrote the book of 1 Timothy claimed to be Paul. But he was lying about that — he was someone else living after Paul had died. In his book, the author of 1 Timothy used Paul’s name and authority to address a problem that he saw in the church. Women were speaking out, exercising authority and teaching men. That had to stop. The author told women to be silent and submissive, and reminded his readers about what happened the first time a woman was allowed to exercise authority over a man, in that little incident in the garden of Eden. No, the author argued, if women wanted to be saved, they were to have babies (1 Tim. 2:11-15). Largely on the basis of this passage, the apostle Paul has been branded, by more liberation minded people of recent generations, as one of history’s great misogynists. The problem, of course, is that Paul never said any such thing. And why does it matter? Because the passage is still used by church leaders today to oppress and silence women. Why are there no women priests in the Catholic Church? Why are women not allowed to preach in conservative evangelical churches? Why are there churches today that do not allow women even to speak? In no small measure it is because Paul allegedly taught that women had to be silent, submissive and pregnant. Except that the person who taught this was not Paul, but someone lying about his identity so that his readers would think he was Paul. It may be one of the greatest ironies of the Christian scriptures that some of them insist on truth, while telling a lie. For no author is truth more important than for the “Paul” of Ephesians. He refers to the gospel as “the word of truth” (1:13); he indicates that the “truth is in Jesus”; he tells his readers to “speak the truth” to their neighbors (4:24-25); and he instructs his readers to “fasten the belt of truth around your waist” (6:14). And yet he himself lied about who he was. He was not really Paul. It appears that some of the New Testament writers, such as the authors of 2 Peter, 1 Timothy and Ephesians, felt they were perfectly justified to lie in order to tell the truth. But we today can at least evaluate their claims and realize just how human, and fallible, they were. They were creatures of their time and place. And so too were their teachings, lies and all.

  • What surprises me that christianity is a unique faith.You believe and follow church while reject what jesus himself said?WHy is this. Here are the examples. Jesus said Your lord and myine is same one God.YOu beleive there are three in one and one in three. Jesus said and taught gospel while you follow a gospel with 4 books written 70 to 110 years after him.Imagine if someone would have written and was even with Jesus in his life he must have been over 100 years old,such an old man forgets,he has demential,he has alzheimer.He can't remember things right mixes right with wrong and the gospel today is not written by same Mathew,Mark a,Luke and John but some other person because it says "According to Mathew,instead of saying by Mathew etc. Then you say Jesus died for your sins.If you read gospel you see he said"No person will bear other person's weight"He clearly washed his hands from other people's responsibility.Jesus was a mighty messenger with clear teachigns and like any teacher wanted his students to follow them in their life you have instead made him the garbage can of your sins.Is this right?
