If you unravel the earth’s history, forefathers, prophets and religious leaders have made some bold statements. These claims have shaped and formed the beliefs of worship centers throughout the world. Founders like Buddha, Moses, Mohammad and Jesus have inspired generations of followers. However, how do you know the one that is right from those who have slightly strayed from the truth?
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me,” John 14:6.
According to C.S. Lewis, each belief system possesses ethics, morals and prudent principles. A former atheist, Lewis wrote Mere Christianity to explain his journey from unbelief to faith. Using apologetics, logic and theology, Lewis methodically separates Jesus from all other individuals. Despite his findings, a progressive culture has forgotten about Lewis, professing there are many paths to heaven.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved, Acts 4:12.
At this point of contention, do you go along with the crowd, confront naysayers or examine the scriptures to ascertain the correct road to heaven? While critics may call you intolerant, narrow minded or old fashioned, most would rather be safe rather than sorry, spending eternity in hell. Thus its essential for inquiring minds to test everything, 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22, so that in the end the truth will set you free.
