Is Jesus the Only Way?

One of the criticisms Christians receive is about the truth that Jesus is the only way of salvation. Many who aren’t Christians will say they don’t mind if we have our belief in Jesus, as long as we also accept their beliefs. But, when we say Jesus is the only way and their beliefs won’t get them to heaven, they reject that truth. They hear us saying that we are right and they are wrong, and people don’t want to hear that. Satan, who is behind the other religions, incites them to strongly oppose Christians for this truth, often making it hard for them to even listen to Christians. This opposition makes some Christians afraid of sharing their faith. As you can see, this truth about Jesus being the only way is a very important part of our faith.
If Jesus isn’t the only way to God, then why should we tell others about Jesus if their way is just as good? In fact, their way to heaven might be easier for they don’t have to humble themselves to ask for forgiveness. Also, most of the other religions don’t emphasize sin and holiness. How can we know for sure Jesus is the only way of salvation for everyone everywhere?
PROOF FROM THE BIBLE: In the Bible God clearly gives us His truth so we don’t have to wonder or guess. He definitely says salvation is only in Jesus (John 14:6; 8:24; 3:16-18; Acts 4:12; Galatians 1:8). There is no other way of interpreting these verses. If you believe the Bible is God’s Word, then this is total proof.
PROOF FROM REASON: For those who don’t accept the Bible as God’s authoritative Word, there is also proof from reason that this is true. We have seen there is only one God, the God of the Bible, and that He revealed His truth in the Bible and only the Bible. We know that only Jesus is the true redeemer. In fact, other religions don’t even claim to have a god who redeems from sin. Since God is holy, sin must be dealt with. Jesus is the only one who could have done that – and He accomplished that on the cross.
Other religions teach we can do enough good to outweigh our bad. They have no way of paying for sin. However, we all know that disobedience can’t be erased by obedience. Obedience is the bottom-line requirement and can never make up for disobedience. That is true in the law of every country in the world. Breaking a law can’t be made up for by keeping other laws. Sin must be paid for – a fine, time in jail or whatever is required. Good works cannot undo the bad. Only Christianity has a Savior who paid for our sin, because He was perfect and didn’t have any sin of His own.
Many people sincerely believe their religion will get them to heaven, but even their deepest sincerity doesn’t change the truth. Faith is only as good as the content, what it is placed in. You can take medicine sincerely believing it will help you, but if it is the wrong medicine it won’t help, it could even harm you. Mankind used to firmly believe the world was flat, not round. No matter how many believed that, or how strongly they believed, it didn’t change the fact the earth is round. No matter how strongly or sincerely people have faith, if it isn’t in a trustworthy object, that faith won’t help them. Only faith in Jesus will remove sin and lead to salvation.
