All paths lead to God, but only one path will present you before God without fault and with great joy.
Pick a path, any path–it will take you to God. Trust me: you will stand before Him one day. You will meet your Maker. You will see the face of Christ.
There are many ways up the mountain, but only one will result in life instead of destruction.
“Christianity is narrow,” you say. “Why must we talk of insiders and outsiders?”
“Christianity is hard. I don’t like what it says. I don’t want anyone telling me what to do. This kind of life, this kind of faith, this kind of commitment–they will make me unpopular.”
“Christianity is strange. It’s on the wrong side of history. No one really accepts it—the miracles, the strange teachings, the ethical demands. They don’t work anymore.”
Yes, Christianity can seem narrow, strange, and hard. Jesus was often thought narrow, strange, and hard too. But sometimes the narrow way is the only way, the strange path is the true path, and the hard life is the one that leads to eternal life (John 14:6).
There are many roads to God, but only one will make you holy and only one will bring you home.
