Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 22, No. 7. June 20, 1959



Sir,—Much of B. C. Walsh's letter is completely trivial and futile. A long discussion as to whether Billy Graham, John Wesley, Schweitzer or Jesus Christ himself have found satisfaction doesn't seem very valuable (presumably there is something wrong in finding fulfillment and satisfaction).

The only thing that really matters about Billy Graham surely is not the man but the message.

Close Attention

B. C. Walsh's assertion that "Christianity is not the only way to the spiritual life" demands close attention.

Either Christ or B. C. Walsh is a liar, because Christ said "I am the Way, the Truth, the Life—no man cometh unto the Father but by Me."

If there was any other way of reconciling man to God, Jesus Christ would have never died on the cross.

Either Christ is the only way or He is no way at all. There is no vague in between.

I would suggest that B. C. Walsh put aside all irrational prejudices against Christianity and "orthodoxy", examine the claims of Christ in perhaps the Gospel of St. John and then either reject Christ and eternal life or accept Him.—Yours, etc.,

R. A. C. Stewart.
