One Way

By Brad L Hodges

John 14:6
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

There are many religions, cults and sects in our world that claim some way or the other into an afterlife following death here on earth.

These groups formulate around what is commonly referred to as “Religion” if they happen to fall within the world’s accepted organizations deemed “religious.”

According to Wikipedia the world’s major religions are; Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.

Each one of these major religions, along with the cults and sects, have widespread and varying belief systems associated with their organizations as well as a blueprint for an afterlife.

The majority of religions believe in a central higher being or God and some cults, such as Unitarians throw them all into a mixing bowl and chose the flavor or favors of the day in their formal meetings.

Jesus Christ rejected organized religion because religion is a man made concept. Many groups, who by commonly defined general beliefs that can be categorized as falling within the bounds of accepted religious principals, will fit into one of the man made world religions.

However these groups embellish the associated religion with sidebar proclamations that roam far from the word of God, the Bible. Some examples of this embellishment are the Quran and Book of Mormon.

But the Bible is the definitive word of God:

1 Thessalonians 2:13 (NIV)
13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

John 10:35 (NIV)
35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside—

As for life after death, or eternal life, there is only one way to achieve that regardless of the multifarious beliefs of the world of man. The Bible, the only Word of God, clearly negotiates the way to eternal life as is declared by Jesus Christ, the Son of God Himself:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

If you are lost in the many conflicts, contradictions, confusions and creeds of man made religion you can simplify your path here on earth that can lead to eternal life by rejecting the things of man and accepting the ways of God which simply states if you accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior you will find the one and only way to everlasting life with Him.
