Yes, There are Many, Many Ways to God....

"I am the Door." (John 10:7).

Whether you live in a big house, a small house, an apartment, or a car -- there is one thing in common with each and every domicile. You enter through a door.

It can be the front door, side door, back door, basement door, or garage door -- doesn't matter. Thieves and robbers climb through windows, and Santa Claus comes down the chimney. Everybody else uses the door.

Jesus said, "I am the door." By this He means that He is the only legitimate way into the presence of God, and into God's heaven. Yes, there are in fact many, many ways to God -- providing they all lead you through the Door.

And there is only one Door -- Jesus. He Himself said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father except through Me." Through Me -- that's a Door talking.

And then Jesus said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber." (John 10:1). Anybody that tries to get you to believe that you can reach God without going through Jesus is leading you through a Trap Door -- and to a very unhappy ending.
