4. What so special about
religions are definitely not the same. Basic beliefs
such as the concept of God and good and evil differ
so dramatically among some religions that they actually
contradict one another.Therefore, religions can't all
be true and thus all lead to God.
If the religions
of the world are carefully studied, one becomes aware
that no provision is made for the remission
of sin, apart from the cross of Jesus Christ. Basically,
most religions embrace the philosophy of good works as a
means of salvation. They subscribe to the concept that if
your good works outweigh your bad works, you will go to Heaven.
But, if your bad works outweigh your good works, you will
go to Hell, if there is one. Of course, you will never know
whether you reach Heaven or Hell, unless your life is over.
[ How inadequate is such a religion or philosophy ]. God
has promised that we can know Him and have fellowship with
him now and for all eternity, through His son, the Lord jesus
Is it intolerant to say that one religion is true?
Truth by its very nature is exclusive and is intolerant
Thinking or stating that another view is false is not intolerance;
tolerance implies disagreement. True tolerance accepts the
rights of others to have a different belief without the threat
of violence. All religions cannot lead to God because they
contradict one another. And it is not intolerant of Christians
to say that Jesus is the only way to God.
not a religion... It's a relationship with God through Jesus
Christ." To be a Christian, one must
first understand and believe that God exists, and that he
is the one true God. One must also believe that Jesus is
Christ, Son of the Living God, and that he was sent here
by his Father to forgive our sins.
Another fact that we must
come to terms with is that we are all sinners. As stated
in Romans 3:23, "everyone
has sinned and is far away from God's presence." In
other words, we don't measure up to God's standard of being
" But by the free gift of God's grace all are put right
with him through Christ Jesus, who sets them free." -
Romans 3:24. This is one of many verses that tells of how
Jesus died for our sins and that the only way to get be right
with God and get into heaven is through Jesus Christ, by
accepting that gift of forgiveness that is offered to us
all in His death upon the cross and His resurrection.
If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that
God raised him from death, you will be saved. For it is by
our own faith that we are put right with God, it is by our
confession that we are saved." - Romans 10:9,10. This
involves faith, trust, and acceptance (of both the Truth
and the Gift). "As the scripture says, 'Everyone who
calls out to the Lord for help will be saved.'" - Romans
