Title: Is Jesus the Only Way to God?


1
Is Jesus the Only Way to God?
  • Jesus Most Controversial Claim
  • I am the way, and the truth, and the life no
    one comes to the Father, but by Me. John 146

2
Three Great Myths About Christianity
  • Myth 1 All religions are basically the same.
  • - all spiritual paths lead up the mountain to God
  • - all religions essentially teach the brotherhood
    and sisterhood of men and women and the universal
    Fatherhood of God.

3
Other religious leaders say...
  • Follow me and I will show you how to find the
    truth.
  • Jesus says, I am the truth.
  • Follow me and Ill show you the way to
    salvation.
  • Jesus says, I am the way to eternal life.

4
Other religious leaders say...
  • Follow me and Ill show you how you can become
    enlightened.
  • Jesus says, I am the light of the world.

5
Other religious leaders say...
  • Follow me and I will show you many doors that
    lead to God.
  • Jesus says, I am the door.
  • Follow me and Ill show you how you can find
    spiritual nourishment.
  • Jesus says, I am the bread of life.
  • Then Jesus said, So, follow Me.

6
World religions - all based on the idea of people
DOING something to earn the good favor of God.
  • -Tibetan prayer wheel
  • - go on pilgrimages
  • - give alms to the poor
  • - avoid eating certain foods
  • - pray in certain way
  • - series of reincarnations

7
All are attempts of people to reach out to God.
8
Christianity God reaches out to people in Jesus
Christ
  • - we are all guilty of wrongdoing
  • - our wrongdoing separates us from God
  • - Jesus volunteered to be our substitute
  • - when we receive His sacrifice we are
    reconciled with God

9
  • All other religions are spelled DO
  • Christianity is spelled DONE

10
Other Major Differences
  • Christianity says there is one God
  • Hinduism says everything is God
  • Islam denies that Jesus was God
  • Buddha was non-commital about the idea of God

11
Three Great Myths About Christianity
  • Myth 2 All religions have equal claims on the
    truth.
  • Christianity is only as valid as any other
    religious system. You have your truth. I have
    my truth. They are both equally true.

12
How do we know Jesus was telling the truth?
  • Reality Only Jesus backed up His claims with
    unique credentials that gave Him unique
    credibility.

13
Jesus Unique Credentials
  • 1. Jesus fulfilled ancient prophecies
  • 2. He validates His claim by His unprecedented
    character
  • 3. He validates His claim by performing
    miracles
  • 4. Jesus fulfilled His own prediction of His
    resurrection

14
Three Great Myths About Christianity
  • Myth 3 Christians are arrogant when they say
    that Jesus is the only way to heaven.
  • Agree if there are many ways to get to heaven and
    we are just saying, Ours is the best.
  • Reality It is not arrogant to act upon the
    evidence.
