In case you have not noticed, there is a huge push in our culture right now for people to be tolerant and co-existent of those of different ‘faiths’, demanding that people be accepting of the belief that all other religions love God as much as any Christian does and that people who belong to these religions are on their way to Heaven just as quick as followers of Jesus Christ. As much as I believe some members of other religions do – in their understanding – love God, I contend that, unlike Rome, all roads do NOT lead to Him.
Many people have said – and are saying – that “God” is whoever you believe Him to be and that the “god” of one religion is equal to the “god” of the next. There is a belief that in actuality ALL people who have a higher sense of a “power” are really worshipping the same ‘god’; they just do not know or understand him the same way. This belief is damnable and wrong! There is only one God and only one way to have relationship with Him – His Son, Jesus Christ. There are many who refuse to acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God and THE ONLY way whereby man is saved into an eternal reward of Heaven. However, many who refuse to believe Jesus is the Son of God will at the very least acknowledge He was a “good prophet”. If a “good prophet”, can He be a liar? Of course not! His words say:
“I and My Father are one.” (John 10:30) “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6) “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9) “He who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.” (Luke 10:16) “He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.” (John 5:23) “He who hates Me hates My Father also.” (John 15:23)
Friends, it is wrong to think that people can co-exist as those having the same “god” and “father” when they clearly deny the “Lordship” and “Sonship” of Jesus Christ. We can exist side by side in the fact that we love those without Truth and desire to lead them into Truth, but we simply cannot exist side by side believing everyone is worshipping the same ‘god’ and are on their way to the same destination. Do not be blinded by this new and false ideology. No one who denies Christ is worshipping Jehovah God. No one! Jesus is the determining factor in false religion versus true. Do not be deceived by this end time teaching. God’s word remains true and faithful and JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY WHEREBY MAN MAY BE SAVED.
