Judy made lasagna a while back. Very good. Tasty. Worth having more. Following what recipe I never knew. I did ask if she used eggs. Which brought a page of internet opinions about the use of eggs in the dish.
The Egg Traditionalists. One said she always used eggs. If she didn’t, the cheese wouldn’t turn firm. Another said she didn’t know why her lasagna always turned sloppy, but didn’t know it was the absence of eggs. Another said she used egg substitute because egg was necessary, and the substitute became the binding agent without the fat. Still another said her trial without eggs ended with molten cheese oozing like lava from Vesuvius.
The Non-Egg Innovators. One had tried it with and without, and saw no difference. Another never used eggs, simply spread the cheeses out over the ricotta. Another said she used eggs, with success while her mom didn’t, with equal success. Still another said she experimented both with and without eggs, without seeing any difference.
The Possible Conclusion. There may not be one way to create lasagna. Any method need not be dogmatic that it’s the one and only way.
Spiritual Point. Is there a spiritual truth in the lasagna mystery? Of course. There is only one way where there’s only ONE WAY. And that’s found in Christ’s answer to Thomas in John 14:6. “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
Whatever anyone, and that means ANYONE, may say about getting to Heaven, NO ONE enters there unless Jesus Christ permits his entrance. He doesn’t answer our question, “What if someone hasn’t heard of Jesus?” He won’t satisfy our curiosity how he IS the Only Way to God. He simply IS and his ALL AUTHORITY in Heaven and on earth makes it real. Christians need never be shy of repeating what Jesus said. They never need to apologize for repeating it. And they never need to explain it. Jesus said it. That settles it. By the way, if no one accepts it, Christ still settles it!
