The Way, The Truth, The Life
John 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
2. "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3. "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
4. "And where I go you know, and the way you know.''
5. Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?''
6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Jesus said it plainly and to the point so that there could be no mistake about the only way to the Father. He is the way, He is the truth, and He is the Life. There are no other paths that lead to life. Whether we choose to believe this or not is a choice we all must make.

This is not new, it's been around from the earliest times.
Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.
A serious warning is being given about choosing our own way. The way that seems right to us in the natural is not the way God has chosen for us. He has chosen the way for us to have life, and we must follow that path in order to get it. Our way regardless of how right it seems will only lead to death, wow! There is something we must also consider. He wants us to have life. He went to great lengths to make His life available to us and He knows the path we have to take to get it. He is admonishing us that there are alternative paths that we could take, but they are not the paths that lead to life. You must know the right path if you are ever going to get to Him. If you don't know the right path then you are simply lost.
God wants us to find Him, that’s why He gave us the correct path.
New age religions are saying that Jesus might be your path and He might not be your path.
If this were so, why did Jesus have to come, why did He have to die, why did He boldly declare, I am the way! Peter proclaimed this truth when being questioned by the High priest.
Acts 4:10 "let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.
11. "This is the `stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.'
12. "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.''
This is the truth that leads to life and makes men free. I've heard it said by people who probably didn't want to offend anyone that Jesus might be your path but He's only just one of the many paths that lead to God.
If Jesus were only one of the many paths then He Himself is lair, for He said it clearly; I am the way. You can not have it both ways. You can not call something the way and it be a lie at the same time. That just doesn’t make sense no matter how you look at it. The truth is the truth and that’s that.
These same people who are saying that Jesus is just one of the many ways to God just simply don’t see the contradiction, or are ignoring it. There is a great contradiction here that simply can not be overlooked.
Truth is eternal and can not be changed. Again, Jesus said in…
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. That’s about as clear as you can get.
There is something in everyone that is searching for the truth, a deep yearning that can only be filled by finding Truth itself. Nothing else can satisfy that longing. The point is, there is truth, and God has shown us the way. I grew up in a religious background going to church but I found myself looking for something much more than organized religion in and of itself could give. I needed something that was real. I began reading a Bible that we had laying around the house and the more I read it the more I realized I had a giant void in my life. The Holy Spirit began to convict me of my life and showed me the reality of Jesus Christ, and that He was the only way to the Father. I had a decision to make at that point. Once truth is received, you have to do something with it. Truth can not set you free until you act upon it. Truth acted upon brings the reality of the New Creation.
