Regarding Christians, Muslims, and Jews,
some say the God they all worship is the same.
But the Bible is clear that the only true God
is the One who is known through Jesus’ name.
Realize it’s a fallacy that knowing God is the same to all three,
for Jesus said that “No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
His words hold true for other “faiths,” too, no matter which they may be.
“No one comes to the Father,” Jesus emphasized, “except through Me.”
There are not “many paths to God,” but He has provided a blessed one–
opened for us by way of Calvary’s cross through Jesus, His beloved and only begotten Son.
