How Can You Say There is Only One Way to God?

Such is the question that most modern people have today, when they hear Christians say that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. This produces various responses, from puzzlement, confusion, disagreement, to anger and hate.

How should we answer such people? It can lead into a debate which will not prove to be profitable, especially if they are allowed to get on a tangent with their modern ideas of pluralism, relativism, and man-centeredness.

The best reply, which usually the critics will have no reply to, is a simple three-point observation.

How can Christians say that Jesus is the only way to know God and be in heaven?

1. The uniqueness of His person - He is God. He is the only divine Son of God, being the only revelation of God to man that has ever come to men. If He alone is God, then He is the only way to God.

2. The uniqueness of His claims - He claimed not only to be God, but also claimed to be the only way to God: "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father except through Me." You can ask the skeptic, "Do you believe Jesus was a good man?" If He made such claims, then simply ask the person, "Was Jesus telling the truth? He was either lying, deceiving, or was perfectly truthful. There are no other choices." Unbelievers must either affirm He is who He claimed to be or call Him a liar or lunatic.

3. The uniqueness of His work - He alone died a death for sinful men that atoned for sin. No one else has ever died as an act that was a payment and atonement for sin. Many have died as an example of love and sacrifice. But only one man's death was an actual divine payment and atonement that paid for sin's debt. Who else in the history of all religions can claim that a death of their leader was a one-time perfect atonement for the sins of the world? Only Christ is the sacrifice for sin.

These 3 simple points will answer the question from Oprah or anyone else who parrots her new age views: "How can you say that there is only one way to God?"

It's simple - 1. Who Jesus was and is -- 2. What He claimed about Himself -- 3. What He alone did about sin.

Thank you for posting this topic. This will not only help Christians to explain their faith but this will also give chance to unbelievers to know the truth. There is no other way for us to be save from hell but only through the Only Son of God..... JESUS!!! John 3:16.

I have often wondered what i would say if someone asked me this question. I know that getting into a heated debate would not be beneficial. The words you have chosen are concise and will leave most people at a loss for words. Some people will argue with it, but these are the people who usually argue about anything.
i appreciate your blog. I am sure it will come in handy in the future.
