Do you believe that knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to get to heaven?

I personally believe that knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior is the only way to get to Heaven. I do understand not everyone believes this and I respect their right to believe as they wish but also ask that they give me the same respect.

I believe it with all my heart but whether I believe it or not doesn't matter because God said it in His word John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me."

It's a bold statement that Jesus makes - "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me." Wow. Not much wiggle room there. Many would say "if he said that he was A way, not THE way, then it would be easier." But would it be easier? If there were, say, 7 ways to get to heaven, which 7 would those be? Would there be only 7 then, what about 1 more? If there were 8 ways to heaven, why not 10 just to make it a round number? If not 10, why not a thousand? If a thousand why not 2,109 ways to get to heaven? You probably see where I'm going with this... If there were close to 3000 ways or even 300 ways to get to heaven, then I would probably think that I'm a good enough person around Way #167 that I don't have to do any more looking. And if I reached that point in my spiritual journey, then it doesn't matter if there's 3 million ways to heaven. The end result of my spiritual journey is not much more fulfilling than before I started! I'm left with an almost infinite number of paths to heaven that I might not find in my small span of 80 or so years. Because of the infinite number, I might begin to question if there really IS a heaven to reach, but I might not. This leaves me with 3 choices: 1. Any path leads to heaven as long as its somewhat agreed upon as pious enough to warrant entrance which after some years of frustration may lead me to deciding #2 2. There is no path or 3. There is one path to heaven To date, only Jesus had the "audacity" to state that he was the path. No one else has come forward to claim such that is still alive or burial spot accounted for. Keep in mind that this answer is just based out of simple reasoning. If there's one path, I would want to know it - just as if there was one website where I could earn some extra money and not have to register with fifty-eleven different websites to find satisfaction. By God's grace, I believe in what Jesus said and my life has changed because of it and though my personal struggles are still present, I have a peace and satisfaction that I can't understand, but am grateful and hope that all quickly find the peace in the one who said that they were "the way." Those that do put their trust in Him realize that maybe one does not need wiggle room to have peace.

yes. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. Unfortunately many still do not know who Jesus Christ is. Many are simply giving lip service and put on appearances to claim of their being a follower of Christ. Spreading His Word is a challenge to all Christians in this world.

To answer your question YES. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

i don't belive that because if this is so where is Arhimede, Plato, Caesar, and others before him? In hell? Just because they didn't heared aboy Him?

actually the people before Jesus was born were covered by the laws laid down in the Old Testament. It tells about the animal sacrifices and other things that were done back in those times. The Bible is very specific about the way things were to be done, and people strived to make sure they did it correctly. These laws held true right up until Jesus was crucified and rose again. This signified that he was the sacrifice, and according to the scriptures, he was the last sacrifice that would be required. From that point on, the Old Testament laws dealing with sacrifice were no longer necessary. That is when the plan of salvation in the New testament came into play. The Old testament really served three main purposes: 1. It gave God's law and guided people in their every day lives. 2. It mapped out the lineage (the family tree if you will allow me to use that term) of Jesus, showing how he fit the description of the Saviour as far as family history goes, as described in the Bible. 3. Its prophecies tell of the coming of Christ. Some religious scholars, which I am not, may try to go into all kinds of details about specifics. I am not going to attempt to do that, because I am not well-read enough on the subject to hold an educated discussion about it, but as far as I can tell, that is the Old Testament in the proverbial (no pun intended) nutshell...

I wrote a song about never being alone after accepting Jesus Christ as my Savior. No, it's not on the radio, but it has helped me in my Christian walk. Never Again It's so hard to understand why you're feeling so alone. You start to think that no one cares. Well, friend I know someone who loves you. And you'll never be alone again, never again. Chorus If you'll take one step toward the Savior. If you'll take one step toward the Lord. He'll always be with you. He'll be there till the end. You'll never be alone. Never again. Verse Like the woman at the well, she was thirsting for more. Till Jesus poured living water in her heart. With one look, his eyes of kindness opened a door. So she'd never be alone again, never again. Chorus 2 If you'll take one step toward the Savior. If you'll take one step toward the Lord. He'll always be with you. He'll be there till the end. You'll never be alone. Never again. Bridge If you're tired and lonely, The Lord is your only hope. Open your heart! Chorus 3 If you'll take one step toward the Savior. If you'll take one step toward the Lord. He'll always be with you. He'll be there till the end. You'll never be alone Never again. Tag He'll be there till the end. You'll never be alone. Never again.

I believe everyone is going to go to heaven. Now, whether they stay there or not, is another question. If you read through scripture extensively and study what it actually says, it speaks of eveyone who will come before the throne......It also speaks of those who will be judged and sent into perdition.

There are actually two judgments. One standing in front of Jesus and then there is the Great White Throne of judgement. That's where you are standing in front of God.

Yes, I believe it without a doubt. Jesus was sent by the Father to rescue and redeem us from this sin-sick world. Adam and Eve used to talk to God face to face but sin has alienated us from Him. Since then it became impossible for man to talk to God. Then Jesus came. He became our bridge to the Father. That's why He said that He's the only Way...No one comes to the Father but by through Him.

Yes I believe so BUT one should follow the teachings of Jesus and live his life accordingly, I think this is the most important thing to be able to go to heaven. This is never an easy task and this remains to be every Christian's challenge.

No other name is given for salvation of man here on earth Acts 16:30. Our problem is not going into heaven, it is salvation. You must find the way, truth and life. No other name.

Yes I believe and am preaching that. Because when believed in Him was given a new life which is eternal. 1st John 5:13 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the son of God that ye may know that you have eternal life--- " And I have eternal life through God's son. 1st John 5:11-12 "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His son. He that hath the son hath life--"my eternal life began the moment I believed in the Lord Jesus and trusted Him to take away my sin. God's spirit sealed me. Ephesians 1:13-14 "---after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise... until the redemption of the purchased possession..." am already sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day I go to be with the Lord Jesus in Heaven. Nothing can destroy this new life. God's power keeps my new life. John 10:28-29 Jesus said "---I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish---My Father---is greater than all, and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." so am safe in His hand. He will not let anyone or anything take me away from Him.

Not just believing in Jesus also we need to follow his good works and commandments. Read his historical sermon on the mount in St. Mathew Gospel. Believing in him is living a perfect life as Jesus Christ and obey his commandments. After 3rd century Christianity went wrong directions after Roman Emperor's conversion. The idea "Believing in Jesus" has been corrupted...!!

I am a Christian, but in a broader way I believe that there is AN afterlie that all GOOD people know, and that it's all he same. Jesus is there, Allah, G-d, God are all ONE (Allah is just the Muslim word for God and G-d is because Jews believe that writing God's name makes someting sacred). I AM Christian, but that doesn't exclude everyone else from the afterlie. I know that Jesus Christ is MY saviour, bu I will not condemn someone else for belieing in something different.
