There Are Not Different Ways to Be Saved!

Bill Brinkworth

No matter what anyone thinks or says, there is only one way to heaven according to the Bible. The word of God says that Jesus is the only way (John 14:6). We must believe we cannot save ourselves; that our salvation is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9) purchased for us by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, who died in our place for our sins! He took the punishment due us for our transgressions. If we accept that, and trust in that way only, then we have God’s promise of an eternal home in Heaven.

For different reasons, many will not accept God’s terms. They want to do it their way. I have heard many people tell me that they were going to heaven, but their way was not God’s plan. It was their imaginative way, or what they were taught from their religion.

Here are some of the ways that people think they are getting to heaven. I list them not to ridicule. Before I was saved I had my own ideas also, and they were just as non-biblical as the following. They include:

Too many people try to outguess God, and do his thinking for him. It does not matter what you or I think about obtaining heaven, but what God says! It is God’s heaven. He is willing to allow us to go there, but under His conditions. His conditions are that we accept Christ as our Saviour from eternal punishment (Romans 10:9). His way is the only way.
