Is Jesus the Only Way to Heaven?

We are living in a day where one is accused of being a narrow minded bigot if they believe that the only way to God and heaven is through Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son of God. We are told by a pluralistic society that there are many gods and many ways to these gods. To teach one way to one God is exclusive and intolerant in our politically correct world system.

What did Jesus say in John 14:6? He was the only way, not one of many. Neither did Jesus say there were many gods. There is only one true God, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

The Apostle Paul wrote (Galatians 1:6-10) that if any one comes to us with another gospel other that what he or Jesus preached, let them be accursed (damned). There are many perversions of the gospel out there. Most pervert the person and work of Jesus. It doesn’t matter what we are right about, if we are wrong about Jesus.

What is the true gospel that Paul and the other Apostles preached? It is the good news that salvation is totally by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. (Ephesians 2:8-10). If we add any work, merit, or unbiblical teaching to the gospel, then we have perverted the gospel.

The professing church today is compromising the truth of scripture in order to be accepted by the world. We are more concerned with being politically correct than Biblically correct. Let us hold fast to the gospel first preached to us, unless we believed in vain (I Corinthians 15:1-2). Only those who continue are truly regenerate.
