“I could never accept a God Who says there is only one way to Heaven.” That’s what celebrity Bill Maher thinks about Christianity. You may call Christianity narrow, exclusive, or intolerant. But think about it for a minute: If there is a God, there can only be one way to reach Him. Any logical person will tell you that. If there were many ways to get to God, truth wouldn’t really matter.

Today we hear much about changing with the age. But let me tell you something: the truth never changes. The multiplication tables we learned when we were growing up are still true today. And more than that, the gospel hasn’t changed. I’ll fight for the right of anybody to have whatever religion he wants, but I’ll also fight for my right to say there’s only one way to Heaven. The truth must always be the same.

There is only one way to Heaven and it’s through Jesus Christ. Sin keeps people from seeing and accepting the truth, but thank God the gospel we preach is full of power unto salvation. Don’t be ashamed of the truth. No matter who else acknowledges it, the truth must always be the same.

Are you going to let the world tell you what to believe about God, or are you going to take God’s Word for what it says? My mind’s already made up. I’ll stand for the gospel ‘til the day I die because it’s the truth—and the truth must always be the same.

Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people. — Giordano Bruno
