There Is No Middle Road When It Comes To What Jesus Christ Taught
Many people think Jesus always chose the middle ground. Thus if we are given two options, in order to be like Christ, we are to choose the compromise between the two.
Unfortunately, this is not the case when we look at what Jesus actually told us.
Jesus Christ said He is “the way, the truth, and the life” c.f. John 14:6. He also tells us we should do all He has commanded us to do c.f. Matthew 28:20.
If Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and we are to follow His commands, this means we are to do what He has revealed to us and given to us. Likewise, we are also to follow what the Church has given us.
If Jesus Christ commanded and taught that divorce and remarriage are to be condemned and not allowed, there is no middle road. If you love Him, you will keep his commandments, c.f. John 14:15.
The middle ground between truth and error is not truth, but error. The middle ground between two people arguing whether 2+2=4 or 2+2=5 is not 4.5. There is only one answer. It is erratic to claim otherwise.
Likewise, if Jesus Christ Himself gave us the doctrine and dogmas Catholics stick to, and if someone makes the claim “if the law does not bring someone closer to Christ, then they are obsolete” he is not being honest, but deceitful.
