It's narrow minded to say Jesus is the only way

Jesus is the One who said that He is the only way,the truth and the life (John 14:6). For Christians to say that there are other ways to find peace with God is to bear false testimony.  In one sweeping statement, Jesus discards all other religions as a means of finding forgiveness of sins and spiritual life. This agrees with other Scriptures: 

 

 

 

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12),

and

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (1 Timothy 2:5).

 
 
 
 
 
 
Something else to consider, you know there are some things that are narrow that are good. Sometimes there’s only one operation that will save your life. I want to be faithful to my wife Laly, to her alone for my entire life. That’s narrow but it’s good. You know when I fly from Texas to California I not only want the pilot to land in Los Angeles, but I want him to land on the right runway. That’s narrow but it’s good. And so yes God’s way of salvation is narrow but it’s good but here’s the thing, God’s heart is wide open – wide open!
 
 
 He offers this narrow gift to people who are rich or poor, doesn’t matter what your skin color is, doesn’t matter whether you’re male or female. God’s heart is wide open and offers this Amazing Grace to all people!
