Many people can straightly say that Christianity is good, but not for them. People have varying opinions and we have to respect the belief of others because we are living in a free world and besides, these things make them happy.
Other people might say about what they think and we consider the words they say are their own opinions. Opinions are considered true, but it doesn’t mean that all true are right, especially in God’s eyes. Its true in the sense that whoever is saying it, is a product of his or her own thinking. Its their preference, like ‘I like cakes.’ Some people like chocolate, some like cheese. Then there is another kind of truth, like scientific truth. For example, gravity works whether we believe it or not. Electricity is present in the electrical wires when connected to a power supply, and many more examples.
People think that religion is on the same level as opinion. But the Bible tells that spiritual truth is more like the law of gravity. It is true whether you believe it or not. The question of whether the Bible is true or not is another issue. The idea is this, the Bible says that our sin has separated us from God, and the only way to solve that problem is through Jesus Christ. Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
We are certain that many people will not believe this and we can not force them to believe it in anyway. But if they are right and we are wrong, will we loose anything? When we die, we simply turn to dust. Ecc 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. But what if we are right and these people are wrong? Then they will spend eternity separated from God. Is this worth at least looking into?
Most people find the idea of Christianity being the only way to heaven as unacceptable. And we don’t blame them because it really sounds arrogant. And truly, some Christians are very arrogant. But come to think of it, these people who feel turn off is a simple misunderstanding. When Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14: 6), He wasn’t being arrogant and saying, “I am the best. And I’m only going to let people into heaven who follow my way.” Rather, He was just saying that there is no other way going to heaven except through Him. Its just the nature of the problem means there is only one solution.
Our sin makes it impossible to reach God. If we’re trying to gain acceptance with God by our “good” life, we’re stuck. If we’re trying to be religious to reach God, we’re stuck. However, God could reach us. Jesus Christ came so we could be forgiven, so we could have a relationship with Him. 1Co 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. We can try to get to God by good works or religious efforts, but Jesus was saying that won’t work. Jesus came so that we can enter through Him. Entering through Him means having a relationship with Him. But how do we do it?
We can have relationship to Him by accepting Him, by believing Him and His words. Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The relationship is a perfect one, God being the Father and we, who believe in Him become His sons and daughters.
