“There are many different paths to the same God.” Heard that one before? It’s probably one of the most popular statements about religion in our world today. “It doesn’t matter what you believe, as long as you believe.” “All religions are different paths to the same god.” What do you think?
Here’s what Jesus thought and taught: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). According to Jesus, how many paths are there to God? Just one—Jesus! Think about this: Did Allah die on a cross to pay for your sins and rise from the dead? No. Only Jesus did! Does Buddha offer eternal life as a free gift, by grace and not by works? No. Only Jesus does! There aren’t many paths to God. There’s only one: Jesus Christ. There’s no one like Jesus!
