Secular humanists tell us that there are many ways to heaven. Just do good and be a ”decent” human being is all that really matters. Some will say that all faiths are good and we should strive to accept and be “tolerant” of others. Although doing good and being decent are wonderful attributes, they will not take you to an eternity with the Lord.
After all if I’m okay and you’re okay, then we’re all okay. Relativism is king in the world view. This thinking is far from the truth of God’s word. There is no salvation in any of the Eastern Religions. Just ritual and meaningless chants, that will not bring true peace or tranquility. Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and so many others fall short of salvation.
Even some churches are not teaching the only way to salvation in an attempt to fit in culturally. Stating that we must be accepting of all faiths no matter what they believe. This isn’t in the Bible, though.
Truth, there is but one way to salvation. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
In Acts chapter 4, Peter is preaching and in verse 12 he said, “ Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
This may not be pleasant to the eyes and ears of some, but truth is truth. There is only one way to heaven and that is through the Cross of Christ.
Occasionally Pastors Eric and Laura will write as the Lord leads them. There may be prophetic words or insights and revelation that have come to them. They share these with the intention that someone would be blessed and encouraged or admonished, something we all need once in a while.
