Do All Roads Lead To Heaven? Not According To Jesus

The following question is from .


Could you fill in the blanks for me? Taoism isn’t true because? Buddhism isn’t true because? Hinduism isn’t true because? Christianity is true because?

MY ANSWER:Christianity Is and clearly claims the only way for peace with God , forgiveness of sins, eternal life in Heaven.

From the words of Jesus Christ who is God in the flesh.
John 14:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
"6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

Hinduism is a multi-theistic religion (many gods).
They have many gods and multitude of "devas" viewed as "avatars" of the ultimate being god of worship is "Brahaman". ( *Devas and Brahaman have varying spellings.)
Jesus is happily added to the pile of gods
"No" says our God.
They are cool with one more god.
They blissfully add Jesus to the list.
God is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
God shares His glory and praise for salvation with no one- not even a well thought out fake god.

Deuteronomy 4:24 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
"24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God."

Buddhism is a philosophy though many Buddhist have corrupted the teaching of the Buddha and worship him as a deity, which he did not claim.
Taoism is also a philosophy.
Philosophies can not forgive you of your sins, grant peace with God and give you eternity in Heaven only Christ Can.

Jesus said about His relationship with God -
John 10:30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
30 "I and the Father are one.”
Jesus claimed to be God in the flesh and the only way to the Father.
By the Holy Spirit we are convinced of our sins.
We know Jesus took the sins of believers on the cross and paid the penalty of sin to the Father.
When we repent we receive forgiveness of sins and peace with God and become citizens of heaven.

Do not get bogged down going tit for tat with false teaching.
You will go no where.
Do this with those you lovingly witness to in false religions-

1. What does your belief do with forgiveness of sin?
2. Why or how can you obtain Heaven by good works as we all sin?
3. Do you have assurance of forgiveness of sins and Heaven?
4. Share the gospel.

Be assured of salvation alone through Jesus Christ.

Jesus was sure-
Luke 19:10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
"10 For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
