There’s only ONE way!!!

March 4, 2011 3 comments

First I would like to apologise for how late this post is, I wanted to do it for Christmas (clearly that didn’t happen) LOL. This topic has been impressed on my heart for a while now because a couple of months ago I and a few friends were talking and I was surprised (to put it lightly) to find that other Christians openly admitted that all roads lead to the same place e.g. Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism etc! I realised that other pastors and preachers professed this same belief.  So I thought I’d write a short and straight to the point post about this topic proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to heaven and the ONLY person that can save you from your sins. I pray this post blessed many of you out there.

In John 14:6 Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This is plain and simple. While many other religions point away to other ways that one might be saved, e.g being a good person etc Jesus Christ points to himself as the only way to the father.

In Acts 4:12 it says “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Jesus makes it very clear here that no human being can save you. This means salvation isn’t one of those “look within yourself” moments HAHA or being good to others can save you.

In John 8:23 it says – “But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.” Here Jesus tells us His not just another Human being, rather he is heaven sent so therefore looking to Him for our salvation is not the same as looking to man rather He is God in the form of man.

Isaiah 44:6 “This is what the LORD says—
Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God.

The above verse confirms that there is no middle road, He is also the first and the last. He proclaims himself as the ONLY God, there is none equal to Him.

Revelation :17-18 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.

The above two verses show what Jesus did for us so we may have eternal life. If you look to any other religion you will not find any of the other prophets or gods that loved us sooooooooo much to pay for our sins. Jesus laid down his life on the cross, so who had never sinned became sin so that our debt (which we could never pay) would be cleared. This allows us to have a relationship with our heavenly father.  Rather, other religions make you work for your ‘salvation’ which we know is impossible because even if you were perfect from here on now, the sins you’d previously committed would still need to be accounted for.

Although the wages of sin is death, through Christ (and Christ alone) we can have eternal life. We cannot earn our way to heaven because as the well known saying goes “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”.

The bible tells us to “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.” (Matt 7:13) It doesn’t say enter though ANY random narrow gate, but it say THE narrow gate means there’s only one correct gate and Jesus is it.

I genuinely believe this is fundamental to our faith in that It is not debateable AT ALL! Without this believe evangelism would merely be a competition of which faith can get the most followers; having said that, it means that if we truly believe that Jesus is the only way then we have a responsibility to preach to good news to all. I would be lying if I’d said I’d never shied away from preaching the gospel to those of other faiths for fear that I would offend them but the truth it it’s tough LOVE! If you truly care about your Muslim, Hindu or Sikh friend you would what ever it takes to save them. This brings me on to the FB appeal, if you don’t know about it then get to know about it boi because it’s serious movement that started on the 16th Feb, it is compelling Christians on facebook to post videos of their testimonies on how Jesus has saved them to compel their unsaved friends and family to come to Christ. If God lays it on your heart please do your video and let’s get the gospel out there and save souls by leading people to the ONE TRUE GOD.

God bless

Sinceress xx
