Jesus is the Only Way to the Father
I heard two very famous preachers say that good folks can get save without knowing Jesus. They said that with a straight face; one of those preachers was Rev. Billy Graham. It should not be a surprise then that regular folks in the church find themselves either confuse about foundational doctrines or, believing the same thing Rev. Graham believed.
As mentioned before, when we come up with a different Gospel we are coming up with an alternative to Christ. Later with are going to see that God does not take these alternatives lightly.
To establish that Jesus is the only way to the Father is not a complicated thing; it does not require years of theological study. In John 14:6 Jesus tells us himself “…I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (NIV)
What more do you need to establish that Jesus is the only way to the Father? To say that somebody can make it to heaven without knowing Jesus is simply heresy. You may say, “but Angel, what about those folks who live in remote places where nobody is preaching the Gospel?” That is God’s issue, not ours. God will save whomever He wants to save. We learned in the last article that salvation is fully the work of God. Is there is anything too hard for God?
