Red Alert! Jesus claimed, and you can read it for yourself, that he is the only way to God!
John 14: 6, Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. How clearer could it have been stated? And to take it a step further he said that “whoever rejects him, rejects the one that sent him” Luke 10:16 “The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me.”
Some may go and make the accusation that “all religions have the same kind of message, however they would sincerely need to re-evaluate that statement. Muhammad the founder of Islam and Siddharta the founder of Buddhism are both dead and still in their graves. But Jesus the Messiah is risen! Very crucial indeed! Jesus’ disciples claimed him to be God.
John 1: 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Jesus himself claimed to be God, read John 10: 30-34, 30 I and the Father are one.”
31 The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 33 The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” 34 Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’?
Can you name any other founder of a major religion that has made that claim? Jesus was coined at one time as “Either a Lunatic, Liar or Lord” However Jesus put that statement to rest by saying his resurrection would be proof of him being Messiah in the scripture;
Matthew 12: 38-42, 38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; 40 for just as JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42 The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment and will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.
Jesus is more than a preference, HE IS THE ONLY WAY!
