Our maker created the first Adam in his image and made all things beautiful. There was equilibrium until the first Adam corrupted himself and us by flouting the maker’s instructions. Our world got messed up when we got messed up, since our planet reflects us.
In response, Love steps in to redeem and recreate us. That is not a mystery – when a product no longer functions, the best person to recreate it is the original manufacturer.
It therefore makes sense for the maker to issue this invitation to treat, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” It applies to people from every culture, language, religion, and sin nature. Therefore, if a pervert needs help, guess who is the way? If a Yoruba woman has issues, who is the remedy? If a Christian is out of order, who is the solution? If a Hindu man is messed up and Jesus’ words are true, He is still the answer.
The invitation is open to all and impossible to ignore but making it religious simply dilutes it and diminishes Christ, who is referred to in scriptures as the last Adam, no more the founder of a religion than the first Adam. Being Adam, His words apply to every human and everything pertaining to humans.
The first Adam is the head of an involuntarily dead race like himself, producing death in every tribe, nation, language, religion and walk of life. The last Adam is the head of a voluntarily new race possessing and producing superabundant life like himself, from every tribe, nation, language, religion and walk of life. Humans belong to either of the two.
