Have you ever talked to someone that believed there were many paths leading to heaven? Usually this person believes in Jesus and goes to church somewhere, at least occasionally. They are sincere and love people. This is part of their problem; they love people so much that they are unwilling to accept that some will lose their souls.
Who revealed the way to heaven?
The New Testament teaches that the Holy Spirit revealed all truth (Jn. 16:13). Jesus is the one who sent the Holy Spirit, so they had the same message (Jn. 16:7-14). So, how many ways were revealed?
Let’s put it this way: How many Bibles do we have? How many gospels are there? How many different New Testaments were given? The answer to each is one.
The Bible says there is one faith (Eph. 4:5). There is only one body of truth given to men by God. There cannot be two. Those who claim there are many ways seem to forget or willfully ignore that fact that these contradict each other.
Here’s the problem, truth cannot contradict truth—truth always agrees with truth. Paul said as much in Galatians 1:6-9. If men bring the same gospel truth, then accept them; if not, reject them. Why? Because anything other than what is revealed is false and will lead you astray.
There is only one way to heaven; one path of salvation. It is narrow (Matt. 7:13, 14). Not many are willing to accept it and travel down that path. Rather, they look for an easier road, a more pleasing way. Sadly, they delude themselves into thinking the easier way is one of the many ways to heaven, but will end up in hell. Let us not be in that number.
