In a Q&A with Time magazine, Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop-elect of the Episcopal Church of the U.S.A., was asked, "Is belief in Jesus the only way to get to heaven?" Her response:
"We who practice the Christian tradition understand [Jesus] as our vehicle to the divine. But for us to assume that God could not act in other ways is, I think, to put God in an awfully small box."
1) Do you agree or disagree with Schori's statement? Why? What Scripture backs up your thoughts on this?
2) How does her answer as a church leader make you feel? Do you think more church leaders should adopt this stance, or refute it?
3) Do you think most Christians share Schori's view?
