Only one way for salvation

Published 9:46 am Friday, June 11, 2010

There is now a lot of people who are saying that all paths lead to God, well I do agree.

However not in the way that they are teaching, and here’s why.

First all people who were ever born will stand before God to be judged, however there are two judgements, one for the just and one for the unjust.

In John 12:48 it says “He that rejeceth me, and recieveth not my words, has one that judgeth him: the words that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.”

To put this in plain English those who say all paths lead to God couldn’t be farther from the truth and here’s why. Consider a house, all roads lead to that house, however it only has one door to go into it. Well Jesus Christ is the door to God, and there is no other way to get into it but by him.

In John 10:9 Jesus says “I am the door, by me if any man enter in he shall be saved, and go in and out and find pasture.”

If he is the door and the only door then it says it’s not possible to get in any other way. not my words, but the words of Jesus Christ himself.

What is better to change the truth into a lie or to tell the truth, When God called me to preach, just as he does all others we are told to preach the truth. Also in John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way,  the truth and the life. I believe what the Bible says and will stick with it through out the ages. It was good enough to get me saved and to keep me.

I feel sorry for those who think that there is another way to get to God.

The Bible gives the story of the Earth and all that he put there on and it was God who made the first sacrafice in the garden to make a temporary covering for sin.

And it was Jesus Christ who made the last sacrifice to save a sinner like myself, take the word of God, which says in John 3:3 Jesus said unto him, Verily, Verily, I say unto you except a man be born again, he shall in no wise see the kingdom of God.

That new birth is spiritual that comes when you hear the word preached, be convicted of your sins, repent, and ask Jesus to save your soul. Then believe he has, (repent=to turn from your evil ways) then start going to church and studying God’s word.

Getting back to my start of this letter, those who enter in through the door (Jesus Christ) are saved and will be judged for rewards in Heaven.

But the second those who took another path will be judged at the Great White Throne where there is no hope of heaven, but will be cast into the lake of fire.

Its sad for people who are so gullible to think that the one who gave his life for their sins and asks them only to believe and receive him, that they think there is some other way to Heaven again where Jesus himself says again in Johen 14:6

Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life.
