Don't All Paths Lead to God?
Some religions teach that there are many gods where as monotheist religions teach that there is but one God. How then can these be reconciled if both lead to the one God of creation? The Bible is filled with warnings against false gods.
The Allah of Islam is totally different in character than the God of the Bible. How can they be reconciled? The truth is that they can't.
What about Buddhism which teaches that we strive to be rid of our desire and personality in order to be absorbed into an impersonal force? That doesn't square with what the Bible teaches.
Christ made it quite clear in John 14:6 (KJV) when he told his disciples how to follow him to heaven. "Jesus saith unto him, (Thomas) 'I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.'"
Jesus also made it clear that he is divine when he said in John 10:30 (KJV) when he proclaimed, "I and my Father are one." By his great miracles and resurrection, he proved his divinity. Only God could do what he did.
Christianity is the fulfillment of Old Testament Judaism. John 5:39 (KJV) proves that when Jesus said, "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."
As I have shown in past posts, the Bible is reliable and is God's word. It's been proven prophetically, historically, and in many other ways. Only by twisting verses can people make it seem to say something other than it actually does.
I'll be writing more about other religions and how they are antithetical to Christianity in a book called You Think You're Going to Heaven? Many people who say they're Christians have never surrendered their lives to Christ and been filled with the Holy Spirit. People need to know about the way to eternal life and accept Christ's magnanimous offer.
