“I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.” (Isaiah 43:11)
Does it really matter what religion you are as long as you are a good person? Are all religions the same? Are there many paths to the same God? Try doing an internet search on that topic. You’ll soon find how intolerant a tolerant society is of those who don’t tolerate many ways to “God.” Figure that one out 🙂
The truth is that there is only one true God and there is only one way to the one true God. It is through the saving God who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” The God of the Bible is the only true God and the only way to God is through God the Son, the One who lived perfectly for each of us, died for our sins on the cross, and rose again to declare us innocent and forgiven. It is only through faith in Him that we have eternal life.
Because of that, there’s no room for an attitude of, ‘I’m better than you because I know the truth and you don’t.” What credit can we take for our salvation? None. It’s all God’s incredible grace.
You see, knowing that Jesus is the only Savior and the only way to God and life eternal creates in us the greatest love for others. To say, “It doesn’t matter what God you believe in as long as you are sincere” is actually terribly unloving. It allows someone to stay in a path that leads only to hell.
Rather, it IS loving to direct someone to the only true God, to Jesus who alone is the way, the truth, and the life. True peace, true joy, true contentment, true meaning in life, and life hereafter is found in Christ alone.
Directing people to Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, just like you,
