Have you ever been confronted with the statement, “There are many paths to heaven”? As followers of Jesus Christ, we can respond with confidence: there is only one way to heaven.
The truth of God’s Word rings out loud and true. Jesus Himself claims, “No one comes to the Father except through me” [John 14:6].
What shall we do with this claim? C.S. Lewis suggested that Jesus Christ is either a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord of lords. Throughout His life, Jesus was confronted in several situations where he could have lied–but instead proved his honesty. The case for Jesus Christ’s authenticity is backed up by His resurrection. Every other religious figure in history has died and is buried somewhere: Jesus’ tomb is the only one with a vacancy sign.
The only claim left is that Jesus Christ is Lord. When we share our faith, we can boldly proclaim the truth of God’s Word. And the salvation offered to us through Jesus Christ is the only thing we need to spend eternity with Him.
