The One Road to Avoid Hell
Some people think God is narrow-minded for stating there is only one-way to heaven. It’s because Satan has inspired a countless number of religions and false beliefs. He has done this in order to deceive people, and plant the idea in their mind that there is more than one way to get to heaven. He suggests to them that believing in only one correct way to heaven is irrational, even prejudice and narrow-minded.
Christianity is not narrow-minded. In fact, it’s open to all and the invitation is to all who will come. There are no prejudices. I’d like to share an analogy to help with the concept of only one way:
A friend says to me, “Bill, I want to invite you over to dinner, and I want to give you clear directions to my house. Go south on Highway 95, turn right at Main Street, and go up the hill. That’s the only way to get to my house.” I respond saying, “I think I’m going to go north on 95 instead of south, and then I’m going to get off at Beach Boulevard, not Main Street, because I think all roads lead to your house. That’s what I think.” My friend would say to me, “Bill, you’re not going to get to my house that way. I’m trying to give you clear directions. I’ve told you exactly how to get there.” I continue to insist that I can get there another way
In the same way, God gives us clear directions to His house. I think He knows where He lives. All we have to do is follow His clear directions and we will get there. He’s not being narrow-minded. He’s being very specific. He’s trying to get us to His house not keep us out. We are the ones who reject the clear directions. Many of us don’t even want to talk about the afterlife. We don’t want to do any kind of research whatsoever or even discuss it. But by not discussing something, we can remain ignorant or uninformed. We could be on the wrong path.
What are the clear directions to God’s house…to heaven?
John 3:36 says, “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life, but he that believes not on the Son, shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
How do we know the Son?
Jesus said in Luke 13:3, “Unless a man repent, you shall all likewise perish.” Repent means to turn away from a sinful lifestyle and commit to following Jesus.
Romans 10:9-10 says, “If we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God has raised him from the dead, we shall be saved.”
You can follow his clear directions and live in heaven or you can go your own way and live in hell. It’s your choice. If you want to live at God’s house, you do it his way. There is only one way as Jesus said in John 14:6. If you disagree, you will have the opportunity to argue with Him at Judgment Day.
