There is a new thing now; A new system; A new concept that all roads lead to the same place.
Many prominent preachers are conceding to it / agreeing with it.
The Pope has travelled the world meeting with the heads of all the different religious groups in and effort to unite them all. This sounds good but at it core (root) is the message that “there are many way to get to God”, there are other religious truths, and there are other paths to achieving eternal life.
Oprah Winfrey - “There could not only be one way to God”
I propose to you that “There is only one way
Jn 14:1-
John 14:1–6 KJV 1900
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Proposition: - “Jesus is the only way”

Any one knows the way to drive to Port Royal?
The way is the path one must travel to get to a desired destination.
- If you want to drive to Port Royal you have got to pass thru the harbour View round about.
If you want to get to God, to Heaven, to Paradise you have got to go thru Jesus.
Why do we have to go thru Jesus?
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God
Romans 3:23 KJV 1900
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 5:12 KJV 1900
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

(1) We have been Contaminated by sin - By the deadly virus of Sin

Sin that has caused men to murder each other.
Sin that has caused men to enslave each other.
“ “ “ “ Rape.......
Sin that has caused men to steel from each other
to lie to each other
to cheat each other
Sin has hurt, damaged, and destroyed countless lives
How many times have you been hurt because of sin
Because someone has lied to you
Cheated you
Betrayed you
and used you.
All because of sin.

(2) We cannot enter Paradise with sin - We cannot have sin in heaven.

Because it would not be paradise anymore
The earth was paradise before sin entered.
1 cor 6:9-10
1 Corinthians 6:9–10 ESV
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
What then will happen to the sinners if they cannot enter into paradise, if they cannot see God? DEATH (Rom 6:23)
rev 21:
Revelation 21:8 ESV
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
Revelation 21:27 ESV
But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
So we Salt - We are destined for destruction:
Destined to be banned from paradise
Destined to be blocked from the presence of God
Destined to be burned in the lake of fire for eternity.
As the wages of sin is death some one had to die.
Jesus (the lamb of God) came and gave His life; died in our place so that we can be free from sin.
1 John 1:9 KJV 1900
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1Jn 1:9
Romans 10:9–10 KJV 1900
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Why is Jesus the only way?

(3) Only Jesus can cleansed us from sin

Why is Jesus the only was?
He alone can wash away our sins.
He alone can make us clean.
eph 2:8-9
Ephesians 2:8–9 ESV
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Titus 3:5
Titus 3:5 ESV
he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
It is not by works; ‘It is a free gift”


though there are many religions, many beliefs, there is only one way to God, to heaven, to paradise and that is thru Jesus Christ because;
He alone has died for our sins.
He alone can wash away our sins.
He alone offer us the free gift of salvation.
Would you like to have this free gift today?
