Is the Door Closed?
“For which is a great nation that has a God who is close to it, as the Lord our God whenever we call to Him?” (Deuteronomy 4:7). “The Lord is close to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely” (Psalm 145:18). “O Hearer of prayer, unto you does all flesh come” (Psalm 65:3). “Trust in Him at every moment, O People! Pour out your hearts before Him; God is a refuge for us, Selah” (Psalm 62:9).
All these words were spoken centuries before the advent of Christianity. The prophets assured us that our Father in heaven hears our prayers and answers them – if we but turn to Him with sincerity.
How then can we accept the claim of a man who says “… no one cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6)? This dark teaching is openly refuted by the words of God’s prophets.
