Room for Everybody
We believe that Jesus died and rose for the whole human race. Jesus says "I am the Gate" (John 10:9,) "I am the Way" (John 14:6.) Science fiction might say "Jesus is the portal." The point is that in rising Jesus makes an opening into the eternal world. We used to say "opened the gates of heaven." That opening is wide enough to let the whole world through.
We are Christians, not so we will have an exclusive right to heaven, but so we can tell the whole world that Jesus loves us all and makes our lives right now worthwhile and wants every human being to be with him in eternal joy.
