Do All Paths Lead to God?

Do All Paths Lead to God?

No PATHS lead to God.  There, we started this blog off with a bang! Most world religions teach that whatever religion we follow,they’re all essentially the same. There may be a few differences here and there in the rules and regulations we should follow along the way, but all agree that the key is to just keep climbing that mountain.

But what if God is not at the top of that mountain. What if all those religious activities we do get us all the way up to the top, only to find out we’re no closer to God.

One of the most troubling verses in the Bible for many people is Matthew 7:22-23 says, “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’  Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”

What went wrong?  Didn’t they do enough for God?  The problem is we can’t get closer to God through anything we do.  Until we understand the depth of our depravity, that our hearts are inherently far from God, and that we are lost, we will never learn to appreciate the incredible price Jesus paid in taking on all of our sin.

Without that understanding, we can’t experience true brokenness. Without brokenness, we will likely miss God’s greatest desire for us…absolute surrender. Short of that, we’re just doing religion.

God is not at the top of the mountain. He came down to us. No paths lead to God.

No one can do enough to earn their way into His presence… God did not overestimate the cost required for humans to be reconciled with Him when He sent His Son to die for us.

Meet The Need was established to reach those individuals with that message…we can’t save ourselves and we don’t have to. We need a Savior and we have a Savior, and it is Jesus Christ!
