Caller Question

“How can you say Jesus is the ONLY way to God when there are many other religions?”

Phone Team Response:

Christianity is not just another religion but rather a relationship with God through Jesus. Jesus Himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”1 Jesus is not just one way to God, but the only way. He also said that He alone reveals the Father, He has the authority to forgive sins, and He would rise from the dead.

Christianity is the only faith that teaches that murder is always immoral, and we are to love each other, our neighbors, and even our enemies. It is the only faith where its founder died and came back to life to pay the price so humanity could be freed and forgiven from their sins. It is also the only faith where God reaches down to help people find their way to Him, rather than expecting people to work their own way into His good graces.

You may protest and say that this is not what Christianity is like. It is true that many people who claim to be Christians do not obey the teachings of Jesus. This of course does not invalidate the teachings of Jesus or His life, death, and resurrection.

Connecting Bible verses: 1 Corinthians 15:12-14.
