Fact #3 - Only One Road Leads to Heaven
A. Isn’t “only one way” too narrow?
1. Sincerely wrong never makes one right!
2. “All the major religions of the world ask their followers for sincerity. Each one also asks for exclusivity. Each one claims that their way is the only way.” – "The God Questions"
3. “Why would God allow confusion like this? Why would a loving God visit one area of the world and describe one way to get to heaven, and then show up in another area and point them in a different direction? Answer: He wouldn’t.” – "The God Questions"
4. The enemy is constantly seeking to destroy truth.
1. Founder: Muhammed, Followers: 1.6 billion
“The Islamic population is doubling every 26 years: the world’s population is doubling every 40 years.” - "The God Questions"
2. View of God: Monotheism
3. Holy Book: The Koran
4. Central Teaching: 5 Pillars
5. Afterlife: Paradise
6. Comparison to Christianity:

a. Islam and Christianity are both proselytizing religions…Muslims to conquer by sword and Christians by sharing the Good News.
b. Both look forward to the day when all the world will believe.
1. Founder: Moksha, Followers: 1 billion
2. View of God: Pantheism
3. Holy Book: The Vedas
4. Central Teaching: Reincarnation
5. Afterlife: Nirvana (about 600,000 lifetimes)

1. Founder: Siddhartha Gautama, Followers: 500 million
2. View of God: “A Noble Silence”
3. Central Teaching: The Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path
4. Afterlife: Nirvana
5. Comparison to Christianity:
a. Buddhism seeks to be free of pain and suffering where Christianity says suffering is profitable in helping us develop.
b. Buddha attempted to detach himself from his suffering and taught his disciples to do the same where Christ entered into the sufferings of the world in order to help the world.
E. What are the beliefs that are being brought into question?
3. The authority of Scriptures
F. What do Christians believe?

Questions to ask when searching for truth about Jesus:
1. Whom do you believe Jesus is?
2. Whom did Jesus say He is?
- The Son of God (John 11:4)
- "I and the Father are one" (John 10:30).
3. What did Jesus say about other spiritual paths?
- "No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6).
4. Jesus was either who He said He was or He was a fraud. Given His claims, we can't logically believe he was only a great teacher, for He would have been teaching falsehood rather than truth (this is an argument by C. S. Lewis).
5. Jesus alone is "the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6).
In a changing world, here are some concerns for truth:
- There is no ambiguity in truth, especially the truth of Scripture (1 John 2:21)
- The Scriptures are truth and reveal God’s truth (Psalm 119:160; John 17:17)
- The Scriptures exhort the discovery and the guarding of truth (Proverbs 23:23)
- God is a god of truth and must be worshipped in Spirit and in truth (Psalm 31:5; John 4:24)
- Jesus Christ is unambiguously called the Truth (John 14:6)
- The Holy Spirit is called the “Spirit of Truth” and guides the believer into truth (John 16:13)
- The church is supposed to be the pillar of truth (1 Timothy 3:15)
- Believers are characterized by the love of truth (2 Thessalonians 2:10)
- Believers are set free by knowing the truth (John 8:32)
- Godless men suppress the truth (Romans 1:18)
- False teachers turn away from the truth (Titus 1:13-14)
- False teachers will turn the church away from the truth (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
