Statement of fact: all religions lead to God. The problem is, they lead to him as Judge rather than as Father.
The only thing that leads to God as Father is not so much a thing as a person, Jesus Christ. So I’m not even going to say that Christianity leads to God as Father, because really it’s not – Jesus does. He said ‘I am the way’ in John 14:6.
Now, there ought to be a differentiation made between religion and culture. Some people are born Muslim, or born Hindu, or whatever. Are they destined for God as Judge because of their birth culture? No. You can become a follower of Jesus, relate to God as Father, yet still culturally be a Muslim.
But they are destined for God as Judge. Ultimately, we all are – not because of our birth culture, but despite it. We’re sinners by nature, and we’re sinners by choice. Thankfully, Jesus redeems us from our sinful nature by faith, and in him we receive adoption into God’s family.
Encounter God as Judge and you’ll be judged a sinner. Encounter God as Father and you’ll be welcomed into his joyous house.
Jesus is awesome.
