Jesus proclaimed in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes t0 the Father except through me.”
He didn’t say, “I am a way.” He didn’t say, “I am the best way.” He didn’t say, Why don’t you try my way and see if you like it”
Heo said, “I am THE way. Period. Do not pass go and collect $two hundred dollars. He is the ONLY way.
I know folks, I have family members and friends who say there’s several ways to get to heaven. They can’t explain what they are, but they are sure there are some.
I have a close relative who asks me,”What about Buddhists and Muslims and harry krishnans” This is a popular secular defense against hearing or believing the Gospel or admitting that Jesus is the only way. When I hear this defense I respond with a question, “What about them?” They change the subject. They don’t offer any defense for their supposition.
The bottom line is: Jesus said it and He is truth. So I’m going to go with Jesus. Some day soon it will all be over. And we’ll find out whether the world was right and there are lots of ways to get to heaven; or Jesus is right and, like He says He is the one and only way to spend eternity with him and the Father in heaven.
I’ll choose Jesus every time. How about you?#christ, #heaven, #love
