Don’t all religions lead to God?

No, since most religions claim to be the only way. Either one is right, or all are wrong; they logically can’t all be right.

Jesus says He is “the way, the truth and the life” (John’s gospel, 14:6). One must either agree, or dismiss His claim. To dismiss His claim is to say He was mad (ie, deluded), bad (he lied), or else He is who He claims to be. He cannot merely be a good man who teaches us to do good. Many good people can do that.

Further, all religions cannot lead to God, since they have different ideas of who God is. The God of Christianity is unlike any other, since He revealed Himself uniquely in Jesus. Jesus said: “I and my Father are one…whoever has seen me has seen the Father (John’s gospel 10:30; 14:9).

The presence of so many religions point to is an innate belief that there is a God. There are very few atheists. The question is, “who is this God”? And, “how would I recognise Him if I saw Him”?

When you look at Jesus, you see someone who acted like God. He could stop a storm, command the blind to see, enable the deaf to hear, and even to raise the dead.

“Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6

However, the greatest sign that He is God’s Son is His resurrection. No other leader of a religion has claimed to rise from the dead, and followed it up by appearing to over 500 witnesses.

Above all, in Jesus we see the grace of God. Jesus is willing to die for His followers, to not merely show the way, but to be the way. His death enables our rebellion against God to be punished, and for us to receive God’s mercy and grace. No other religion makes such provision for man’s sin.

The best way to weigh up Jesus’ claims is to read what he says about himself in John’s gospel, part of the New Testament in the bible.
