NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME

There are some who believe everyone goes to Heaven when they die; however, Jesus Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6). Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). Why is Jesus Christ the only way to the Father and what does it mean “to be saved?

The Bible shows that the unrighteousness (sin) in our life causes a spiritual separation from GOD that leads to death. Even though we might be spiritually dead in trespasses and sins, we can be forgiven and saved from death by being born again and receiving Eternal Life by being forgiven of sins for our faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the only way, because GOD (Who is Eternal Life) is in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of GOD, so that by receiving the Spirit of Jesus Christ, we are restored to fellowship with GOD and Eternal Life.

He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me (Matthew 10:40).

I (Jesus Christ) do not pray for these alone, but for those also who shall believe on Me through their word (word of His disciples), that they all may be one (those who believe on Me), as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe that You have sent Me (John 17:20-21).

John 10:9; "I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

Just to add some essentials lest some think this is a Christian church exclusion.

Jesus knocks on our hearts Rev 3:20, all our hearts John 3:16.

We let Him in by repenting of our sin Luke 5:32, hating what is wicked Rom 12:9 and laying our lives down for Him Matt 16:24.

Anyone can do the above. Nobody is cherry picked. No church attendance, correct religion or denomination gets you into heaven. Only Jesus.

Just to add another essential, we MUST BE Born Again.

John 3:1-21 (NKJV)
1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."
3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

4 Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?"
5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'

8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?"
10 Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?
11 Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.
12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. [He who believes must be born-again]

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."

We are to believe in the Lord, we are to call on the Lord, but He makes it Very Clear, we MUST BE Born Again.
