I thought I would touch on some common myths in upcoming blogs, and while considering where to begin, I felt led that perhaps the best place to start was the myth of all religions leading to God.
2 Timothy 4:3 “For a time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will accumulate teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new.”
In today’s society, where political correctness has replaced truth, the myth of all religions leading to God has become more and more acceptable. In fact, if you suggest otherwise it actually makes people angry. As pointed out in the above scripture, many people simply will not tolerate it. But the truth of the matter is that this is a myth. If all religions led to God, it wouldn’t have been written at Matthew 7:14, How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it.”
In the book of Exodus, Moses played an integral part in freeing the Jews from slavery from the Egyptians, who worshiped other gods. So, logically speaking, if every religion led to God, there would be no need of anyone to be freed or saved.
At John 8:31-32 it is written, “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, you really are My disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
In today’s day and age, like the Jews in the book of Exodus, we again find ourselves surrounded by people who worship other gods, or, if they worship Yahweh, the Almighty God as Christians, they have been spoon fed falsehoods mixed with truth by the Shepherds that lead them. Many are also under the impression that if they are just a good person, they will go to heaven while others, like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, believe that only a mere 144,000 will make it to heaven.
In issue 21 of our newsletter, I wrote about how things will soon change and why our message is so important. I again find myself reiterating this because with each day that passes our message becomes more and more urgent.
Very soon, there will come a time when things will get so bad here on earth as we continue through the Tribulation, that religious communities will be turned on and houses of worship will be under attack by those turning on them. It will be then, more than ever, that the myth of all religions leading to God will rear its ugly head.
We have been given examples of how to stand steadfast in our faith in the face of adversity and those who wish to harm or kill our physical vessels (bodies). These examples extend all throughout the scriptures and not only in the New Testament. Christ, gave the more prominent example in how he suffered and died for our sins, but his disciples also went on to give examples as they were faced with floggings, jail, and eventually their own deaths for what they steadfastly believed.
That’s why it is so important to know, understand and believe with every fiber of our being that not all religions lead to God. And, when the time comes, we must stand with Father and Christ in truth and voice Christ as King even if it means the death of our physical vessels. If we do not stand firm in faith even in the threat of death, we will lose out in the hope of eternal life.
