I heard today that many people in America, even born-again Christians, believe that there is more than one way to Heaven. Have any of you ever been to a church service where the Bible is taught? And that it is the literal word of God?
I can’t believe that anyone who thinks the Bible is the word of God, and that it is true, could possibly think or teach that there is a possible way to Heaven that doesn’t involve the acceptance of Jesus as Savior! The Old Testament confirms that belief and faith in God’s promises were the only possibility of being justified by God at that time. Nevertheless, they went to the “pit” until Jesus went down to “release the captives” while he was in the tomb.
There are those who don’t think that could have happened but the Bible says so, so I believe it.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and The Life. No one comes to the Father but through Him. (Paraphrase of John 14:6) You can be as good as you can be and still not be able to get into Heaven. Our “righteousness” is as filthy rags to God, no matter what we think or what others think of us.
I know that sounds like a very narrow-minded way of looking at things, but the road to Heaven is narrow and the door to that roadway is narrow as well. That “door” is Christ, and He is the only way to get there. If you still doubt me, read God’s word in John, or Luke, or Romans as well. They all say the same thing, just in different words.
