Chestnut Ridge Church
Clear as Mud-Part 1
The gospel can be confusing. What exactly should be included in the presentation of it? What does God require of us to receive forgiveness of our sins? How do we receive the gift of eternal life? Our new series, Clear as Mud, will answer these questions and more. No message is more important than the gospel—so, let’s clear it up.

Clear as Mud: Part 1 (Tim Haring)

Problem: People have trouble believing there is only one way to heaven
Solution: There is only one way
How do we get right with God?
How do we become His children?
How do we begin a relationship with Him?
How do we know our sins are forgiven?
How can we know we'll go to heaven?
By His words, “No one comes to the Father except through Me,” Jesus stressed that salvation, contrary to what many people think, is not obtainable through many ways. Only one Way exists. Jesus is the only access to the Father because He is the only One from the Father. – E.A. Blum
Jesus alone conquered death so he can provide eternal life.
Jesus alone paid the price so we could receive forgiveness.
It is God’s one true path; it exists. This simply means that, rather than complaining about exclusivity, one should be profoundly grateful to God for providing a way out of the sinful condition that besets every human being. – Jewish New Testament Commentary
