How many ways to God?

Posted

Jesus is not one of many ways to approach God, nor is He the best of several ways; He is the only way. – AW Tozer

Laziness. This is one problem with our society. We will work hard at our jobs and hobbies, but when it comes to who God is and what He wants we'd rather regurgitate someone else's ideas that fit our lifestyle. How many times have you see the Coexist bumper sticker. You know, the one where every letter is also a symbol for a different religion. Sure, it looks good on a bumper sticker, but this theology doesn't work. If you were to research each of those religions, they don't work with the others. Their beliefs contradict each other.

And how many times have you heard someone say, "There are many ways to God. Jesus is just one of them." Have they actually done the research? Have they actually studied this? What does God say about this? What about this statement, "I'll go to heaven because I'm a good person." Good according to whom and by what standards? Again, what does God say about this? 

One of my favorite lines comes from Voddie Baucham Jr. He said, "God gave you a brain and He expects you to use it." Stop going off of what other people say and do the leg work. Open the Bible. Do some research. See if your theory about who God is and what He wants is right. If you are going to be lazy about it, be prepared to be wrong and accept the consequences.
