If Christianity is correct, does that mean all other religions are wrong? Yes or No?
i read the answer to “if chistianity is the crrect religion, does that mean
that all other religions are wrong?” the answer on the site does not answer
the question it avoids it. i would like a yes or no answer wich can be
followed by an explination. please respond with a yes or no first
Yes is the short answer but you have to specify first what you mean by “correct religion”.
Religion means many things to different people. To some it is their culture, to others it is a way of thinking and to others it is means of contacting the spiritual. Christianity is none of these.
At the heart of Christianity is a relationship with God. The message of Christianity is that humanity in its sinfulness has been cut off from God, we have lost touch with him because we really don’t care about him or his ways. But rather than turn his back on us God has reached out to us and offers to forgive us and bring us back into relationship with him through Jesus Christ. We can have forgiveness but we have to do it on his terms.
Christianity is centres on God’s Son, Jesus, who he is and what he has done and it is Jesus who makes some amazing claims about himself. In John 14:6-7 he says
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Also in John 6:40 he says
“For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Jesus is saying that you can only have a relationship with God through him. It is a claim that leaves no room for other ways to God.
So the choice is this:
- Jesus is a liar and chrisitanity is false;
- Jesus is a lunatic and chrisitanity is false;
- Jesus is telling the truth and all other ways to God are false.
This is the choice that all of us ave to make.
So Yes, Christianity is the only way to God but not because I say so but because Jesus says so.
I hope this answers your question more fully. If you have any other questions please visit the site again.
