Only One Way to Heaven!

Narrow? There is no other way!

“I am the way, the truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me” John 14:1-6

Christian leaders who appear on secular television talk shows are often asked whether they believe Jesus is the only way to heaven. If the answer is Yes, Jesus is the only way, the interviewer often paints the Christian as intolerant, arrogant, narrow-minded, out-dated, and fanatical.

But if the interviewer were talking to a physician who had made a medical breakthrough for a terrible disease, would he say, “Doctor, how intolerant to think this is the only cure for this disease?”

If he were talking to a mathematician about the multiplication table, would he say, “Professor, how can you be so arrogant as to believe that three times three always equals nine?”

By its very nature, truth is narrow, precise, and factual. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). In this day of pluralism and political correctness, it’s important to know that Christ is still the only one who can save from sin. Do you think God would have given His own Son had there been some other way?

Trust in Christ alone, and trust Him today.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
