It is a wonderful thing to live in a country where there is freedom to worship God (or not) as you choose. Many people living in the world today do not have such liberties. But is our society’s religious tolerance blinding us to the fact that it really does matter what you believe? The real question is: does God believe in religious tolerance?
Jesus Is The Only Way To God
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6). Notice that Jesus did not say, “I am a way,” just one of many ways to God. He said, “I am the way,” the only way to God.
All Other Ways End In Destruction
Jesus said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it” (Matthew 7:13). According to Jesus Himself, the way to Heaven is narrow and found by few, while the way to Hell is wide and traveled by many.
God Demands Repentance
“These times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). Repentance means changing your mind. God says that if you follow any other way than His way, you are living in “ignorance” and need to change your mind. That doesn’t sound very tolerant, does it?
The Truth Matters
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 16:25). Tolerance makes for a nice country to live in, but having the freedom to believe something doesn’t make it true. Truth matters to God, and it is only by knowing, accepting, and following the truth that we can be spiritually alive and free.
What Is The Truth?
What is the truth about Jesus? He is God’s one and only Son, who suffered and died because of our sins: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18).
What is the truth about us? God’s verdict of mankind is not pretty. Without His salvation, we are all “dead in trespasses … having no hope” (Ephesians 2:5,12). However, our sins will be taken away if we “believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification” (Romans 4:24,25).
Will You Accept The Truth?
You can go on believing some other “truth” about God and about yourself, or you can accept what God says. It’s your choice. Jesus said, “If you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins … If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:24,31-32).
We urge you to turn to God and put your trust in Jesus Christ today: “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
