inclusivism, exclusivism and universalism

Exclusivism- Your own religion is the only way to salvation

Inclusivism- Your own religion is one way to get salvation. Other religions may contain partial truths.

Pluralism- All religions have an element of truth.

Analogy of 6 blind men feeling an elephant. They may believe it is all different things but it is the same.


  • God needs to be the focus not Jesus. Every religious person believes in a powerful God/ Gods of some sort but we all interpret him in different ways. (pluralism)


  • All humans are part of God's creation
  • Non-catholics are actually anonymus christians as they aren't aware of God's love (Inclusivist)
