In response to a question from a dear friend
asking if other religions go to Heaven.
When I heard that not all religions go to Heaven
I was angry and put off, I turned my back on God
I said He did not Exist.
But when I came to realize that He DOES Exist
then I had to accept all that the Bible says as HIS Word
Whether I like it or Not
Whether I agree with it or Not.
God does not Lie
His Truth is right there for us to read, in His Word, The Bible.
It is His World
We are His Creation.
And it is His Rules.
(doesn't that very statement make you want to rebel? oh our sinful hearts!)
He loves us and wants us to be with Him.
(so why do we hate Him?)
And all we have to do is say YES
and accept him.
AND, if you accept God
And His Word, the Bible as the One and Only Truth
Then you have to accept that Satan is Real.
And that Satan is the Prince of this World
And that Satan seeks to Deceive us.
Even if it means posing as peace and love in other "religions"
and deceive us and lead us away from God.
Personally, I find it very hard to believe in Satan.
And Satan loves it that way!
He gets so much more accomplished if we do not believe in him!!
Satan tells us: "All Roads will lead to God, if you are a good person, you will go to Heaven"
It tells us so in the Bible:
Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way that seemed right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."
1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
But the Bible says only One Road leads to God
And you are called to be more than just a good person.
You are called to Follow Christ.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 3:3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
Who will you believe?
