“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6), Jesus makes this very bold statement, which contradicts the widely held notion that all roads lead to God…how can there be just one way?
What many are confused with is the difference between one way and the many religions which are created by man. Jesus did not setup a religion on earth. This doesn’t mean a religion is a bad thing, its the truth. God sent His Son, and His Son is the way the truth and the life.
Religions were created by men to provide order. Unfortunately the “order” has taken on a life of its own…the rest is the confusion we have today.
Jesus also states “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples (John 15:5-8).
Whatever you have been told, open your heart to Jesus…start a conversation with Him and gain access to the Father…its that simple.
