Are You Playing The Odds? Apr 02 2012
"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." - John 14:6
There are adherents to a spiritualist movement, combining all religions, wrapping their arms around Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and any other belief they may stumble upon. I guess they are playing the odds, figuring that if they embrace every religion, they'll stumble their way into heaven! These people are working way too hard to create a connection to God when one is already laid out for them.
"But wait!" they would say, "I believe that Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha can all tell us the way to God, and you can't prove otherwise."
Well, I believe we CAN prove otherwise. Let me ask you this question: If someone says, "I am the way to God; I am the Truth, I am the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." Would he be lying or telling the truth? An arrogant megalomaniac, or really God? None of the other so-called gods claimed this. Only Jesus did. So, was He right or wrong? If He's a liar, you don't want to follow Him. But if Christ does tell the truth, then He really is the Son of God. His resurrection proves it.
So, we have to make a decision. We're either going to accept Him as our Lord and Savior, or follow someone who didn't even claim to be the Way. You can't embrace them all; you've got to make a choice.
