All Roads Lead to Rome

If you were out there looking for something to believe in, something or someone to follow, exactly what would you be looking for? What would your criteria be for choosing a religion?

These days, surely all roads lead to Rome, right? Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, a few Hindu gods, yoga, re-incarnation, a bit of mix-and-match, just being a good person – it’s all the same, isn’t it? If there is an after-life, then one or other of those will surely get you in.

A few years ago now, I was on the board of a Christian aged care organisation. We were talking about producing some prayer books for the elderly folk in some of our nursing homes. So (and I still can’t believe that this actually happened, but it did) one of the ordained ministers on the board suggested that it should have Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist prayers, as well Christian ones After all, that’s the world in which we live. That’s what ended up happening, at which point I resigned from the board.

Now don’t get me wrong. I passionately believe that everyone should be free to believe whatever they want to believe. But here’s the rub for me, as a Jesus-follower:

John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”

When I was searching, I looked at all the major religions as well as the trendy, designer belief-systems out there. But I wanted something real, something genuine, something that’d make a powerful difference in my life. And the only place I found that was at the Cross of Christ.

Jesus. Now here’s a God who’s prepared to die for me.

Is there any other way? Not on your life!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
