If you asked the average American today what the difference was between the major world religions, they would probably mumble something about all religions being pretty much the same. People assume that all religions have nearly the same moral teachings and ideals. Many people believe although these various religions travel different roads they all lead to God. Wrong! Many people believe in a Higher Power and consequently think it really doesn’t matter what form your belief takes as long as you believe. Wrong! Jesus told His disciples in advance, “There is a judge for the one who rejects Me and does not accept My words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day” (John 12:48).
Jesus Christ makes Christianity unique in comparison to any other religion. There are many religious voices shouting at us from different directions today, but only God’s Word holds the truth in regards to God’s plan for saving sinners. Christians believe in a God who is the author of life. We believe God has revealed Himself in love to His creation in the person of Jesus Christ. We deserved to die for our sins, but Jesus died in our place that we could be forgiven. Jesus also overcame death through his resurrection so that we would know that we do not have to fear death. Here is the truth, there is only one way to our Creator God and that is through faith in Jesus (John 14:6).
