It Is Written in Acts 4:12
Nor is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven, given among men, by which we must be saved.
There you have it. Probably one of the top two, of the most controversial statements ever made. You can start an argument just about anywhere, without even trying, by quoting that verse.
The vast majority of the world's population does not agree. People get offended, because they think theirs is the only right religion. They all have an opinion about the afterlife.
You have people high in government, entertainers, and all kinds of other people who just miss the Bible and what it teaches. A problem people have, is that instead of changing themselves to live according to the Bible, they want to change the Bible according to the way they live. Most people have a pride problem, and do not want to submit themselves to our Creator.
Let us look at Christianity and Jesus.
1) Christianity is a relationship not a religion
2), Christianity is based on love, not impossible rules
3) Christianity preaches salvation through Jesus
4) hundreds of prophecies have been fulfilled by Jesus
5) Jesus died and rose again in order to save us and forgive our sins
6) His coming was foretold by the old-time prophets
7) no condemnation
I wonder how many religions can say the same thing. My own personal opinion, is that which religion you have doesn't matter a whole lot, if you accept Jesus as your Savior. If following rules and regulations, is what you like, that's fine, as long as you believe in Jesus and what He did for you.
And just a reminder of something I said a number of times in the past. God does not send people to hell. Each person makes his own choice as to where he will spend eternity. In spite of what many people think, good people and good works does not earn salvation. Salvation is a gift to all who accept Jesus.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
