Summary: In a world that tells you there are so many differant ways to get to heaven, how can we know that Jesus is the only way to heaven?
Why Is Jesus Christ the Only Way of Salvation?
The first attack on this subject will usually be the Holy Scriptures. People will tell you that it is old and out dated and it cant apply to our lives today. If you destroy the Holy Scriptures or even if you say that one thing is erroneous then you are trying to take away the final authority of the Bible and place it on a man.
This is one of Satan’s greatest schemes. And many many people are pulled into this deception. Even in some of our Baptist churches today we have some that do not believe that the Bible is absolute truth. And that it should only be used as a guide. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS!
There are also people that will tell you that other religions are OK that Allah and Buddha is the same God as The Jehovah God of the scriptures. Let me give you a statement that Bob Record shared one time when asked “With all the religions out there saying that there are different ways to get to heaven, what makes you believe that yours is the only way?” and Bob Record said and I quote “let me answer your question with another question, If there was another way of Salvation, what kind of God would we have that would send His only son to be killed?”
There was no other way the Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:22 …and without shedding of blood is no remission.
You will hear people tell you that MY god would not send anyone to hell MY god is a god of love MY god… Folks you need to quit this idea of God and Search the scriptures to learn about the TRUE God. To have an Idea of God or My God is Idolatry and it an abomination to God.
To say that the Bible is not absolute truth is to error from the faith.
they are extremely dangerous because they contain just enough truth to cause even Christians to be deceived. That is why it is so important that we study the scripture and know what they say.
Now after having given you some things that you may hear from these false teachers, let us answer the question at hand Why Is Jesus Christ the Only Way of Salvation?
