Survey says too many ways to heaven
    July 16 2008 by Dale O. Steele

    The most recent survey on religion in America indicated that 90 percent of Americans believe in God. More than half of those also believe there are many ways to find God and get to heaven. Often the whole subject of heaven produces a condescending smile toward such an old-fashioned belief. We hear of eternal life more and of heaven less. The fact is that the Bible assumes eternal life but defines and describes the two destinations where never-ending life will be spent.

    Have you ever wondered how once strong, evangelistic churches became indistinguishable from the rest of the world? The goal of the world and those churches is to be objective, non-judgmental, neutral, balanced and fair. Biblical doctrine no longer matters and is believed to be divisive. What matters is that no one should feel uncomfortable or offended by the news that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. And few hear the good news that God has made a way for that judgment to be reversed through the saving knowledge of Jesus. His death on the cross pays our debt of sin in full.
    We are to believe in God and the Bible but not be exclusively devoted to either. We are to applaud everyone's beliefs but not examine the fact that they can't all be true at the same time.


    The only true and acceptable survey that matters is the question that our Lord asked Peter. "Who do you say that I am?" The answer to that is not a matter of opinion. Eternal life truly depends on "the way, the truth, and the life" as revealed in Jesus Christ.
