Surely All Religions Are The Same!

August 4, 2015

When sharing your faith, sooner or later some will say: “all religions are the same”. How do you respond?

One way to approach this scenario is to highlight the facts:

The founder of Buddhism is dead and still in his grave.     really,really,dead!

The founder of the Muslim faith is dead and still in his grave.    really,really,dead!

The founder of Confucianism is dead and still in his grave.     really,really,dead!

The founder of the Sikh faith is dead and still in his grave.     really,really,dead!

The founder of the Hindu faith is dead and still in his grave.     really,really,dead!

All followers of these religions will agree with the above facts.

However, according to the Bible and the experience of millions of Christians, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and is alive today.     definitely alive!

man at a crossroads wondering which way to go  Let’s assume you’re out on a hike. You come to a crossroads and you’re unsure which road to take. You notice there are two men by the side of the road. One is alive, the other is clearly dead. Which one would you ask for directions?

Jesus Christ is the living person at the crossroads who can tell you the right road to take.

In all other religions, man points and says: “This is the way to God!”. In the Bible Jesus Christ says:”I am the way to God!”

According to the Bible, Jesus claimed to be able to forgive sins, something only God can do.

Jesus also said: “I am the way, the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father, except by me”
