Jesus is the only way. Whether you feel this is fair or not, it's true. God loves people more than our little minds can comprehend. God is a loving and fair God and he has made a prevision for all to come to him. Many know the way but refuse the way or the plan of salvation. God is a just God; he knows the hearts of men (and women). He wants no one to perish. If someone dies and has never heard about Jesus then they will not be held accountable but, before Christ's return every ear will hear. You can reject Jesus and say I believe that God is a loving God and will not send me to hell because I'm a GOOD person; well you are right in saying God is a loving God, he loved you so much he gave you a way to escape hell and that way is Jesus. If you know about Jesus and reject him, you are lost. There is simply no other way.
Christians are very concerned for those who knowingly reject Jesus; our hearts ache for the lost. How do you think Jesus feels after giving his life for the lost and then people reject his act of love and mercy? God made a way, GOD IS GOD, not us, he loves you and me so much but will NOT force himself on you or anyone. All have sinned, some worse than others; NO ONE comes to the Father except through the Son (JESUS). God has made an easy way for people to live out eternity in Heaven. It is not about our works, it is all about the sacrifice of Jesus, he is the way, the truth and the light. I understand this truth, and it boggles my mind how some know the truth and still reject it.
I believe that people who do not follow God's plan of salvation through Jesus are a part of a FLAWED RELIGION. They are trying to get to heaven based on their works. Works without faith is dead. My argument is based on my faith in Christ; if I didn't believe it then my words would be flimsy. Having faith in God and believing in Jesus as your personal savior is NOT flawed. If people do not want to believe in Jesus as their savior then that is their choice.
If you know about Jesus, why would you reject him? That is the real question. Since Jesus is the only way and since his sacrifice is the ultimate expression of love why would anyone not take him up on his offer for salvation? Well many don't because they want nothing to do with him. If this is the case they choose to be lost. You can't blame God or Jesus; you can only blame yourself... God is GOOD and he loves you; he made a way for all to be able to come to him and that way is JESUS... After you accept Jesus you have to change your life, you can't continue to do bad things. Whether you are really bad or just a little bad, you still need to ask for forgiveness. Jesus is the only way to receive forgiveness. After you are forgiven then you must obey God's commandments. In doing so it shows God that you are sincere in wanting to change and accept the sacrifice of his Son. IT IS NOT OUR WORKS, it is HIS SACRIFICE! We change because we love him and want to serve him... YES, if people reject Jesus then they condemn themselves. God loves us all, HE HAS MADE A PLAN for us to be saved. HE IS GOD, not us. Reject the plan means you are lost! Accept the plan means you are saved! It's simple and so many reject it. You can't blame God! God does not condemn anyone. People condemn themselves by rejecting his plan. Mankind by their nature wants to reject God and do things their way. Mankind wants what they want and they ignore God, they think I will do things the way I want to and God should just accept it. God loves us, period; he will not force his way on anyone; not you, not me, not good people or bad people. Why is it so hard for anyone to accept that God's way is better than our way? He is all knowing, all loving and all merciful. Please accept him today.
