Jesus Only Way To Heaven

John 10:9 "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." This verse, and this verse alone is ample proof that any effort to be saved and reach heaven except by the Lord Jesus Christ is pure folly! Comment?

The ONLY way all day, all the time.
---richa4946 on 2/7/09


He is the only Way!
---BryanG on 2/7/09


yes, jesus is the way the truth and the life.thats what i believe also.
---netta_3634 on 10/18/08


Mima: you stated:Nicole, please read these versus, from Ephesians 5:10-11-12" you quoted from Hebrews 10: 10-12 and it clearly has nothing to do with transubstantiation. He is showing the universal efficacy of Christ's sacrifice. however here he is comparing the posture of the Old Testament priests with that of Christ.
---Johannes on 7/28/08


Yes, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12. Christ is the one and only absolute Salvation for mankind, manifestedly changing the soul and proven to be truth and worthy of all worship and acceptation: all else, every single religion in the world is manifestedly proven to be false and idolatrous and antiChrist, and will not and cannot save any one. Jesus says and proves, "I am The way, The truth, and The life: no human comes to the Father, except by me. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers. I am from above, I am not of this world. If you all believe not that I AM, you all will die in your sins."

Mima, transubstantiation is a big name for what Jesus states in John ch 6 that His Body is true food and His Blood is true drink.

How many times and ways He has to tell you that His Body is Bread and His Blood is Drink for us.

You have to remember that there isn't any time with Jesus. His Sacrifice is made present to us. Or are you saying it is impossible for Jesus?

Behave like the Disciples in John 6:66. Jesus didn't stop them nor will He you. Jesus does not change. Why would He explain every parable and confusion but not His Body being Food?

Because the Disciple were not mistaken and took Jesus literally. You were not there, they were. Who are you to say Jesus and the Disciples were wrong and you are right?
---Nicole on 7/26/08


nicole,

I truly believe that the blood of Jesus covers my sin in the eyes of God. We don't ask for forgiveness because Jesus took our sin away. I believe if that were the case, Satan would have already lost because there would be no sin for us to commit. Satan hasn't lost yet... of course we all know that he looses, but the battle is still raging. Sin will be covered by the blood of Jesus until the Lord, I AM, comes to reign on earth for one thousand years!!!

the bottom line?
the good news?
Jesus is coming and He loves you!!!!!!!!
Jesus is coming and He loves you!!!!!!!!
Jesus is coming and He loves you!!!!!!!!

did i say that enough?
---Betty5357 on 7/25/08


Nicole, please read these versus, from Ephesians 5:10-11-12
" 10-By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ ONCE for all.

11-And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

12-But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God,"

As you can readily see these versus plainly teach that transubstantiation is an impossibility.

I understand that your acceptance of this teaching will tear the fabric of Catholicism from you, however, I can do no less than be truthful.
---Mima on 7/25/08


Nicole, you do not really believe this or you would not depend on Confession and Holy Communion. If you do not go to Confession and holy Communion then you are not really a Catholic. There is nothing you can do to make yourself clean or keep yourself clean...All we can do is obey God and follow Jesus.---frances008

Yes, I truly, really believe that Jesus takes away not covers our sins.

Yes, I depend on Confession and Holy Communion.

Nothing I can do? I can REPENT! that is the something I can do to have Jesus take away my sins. Obeying God is to Repent.

Matthew 4:17 "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

Action is needed Frances. The Action is Repenting!
---Nicole on 7/25/08




Nicole, you do not really believe this or you would not depend on Confession and Holy Communion. If you do not go to Confession and holy Communion then you are not really a Catholic. Jesus sins cover all our sins past present and future. He knows our limitations. He made us. There is nothing you can do to make yourself clean or keep yourself clean. The very idea is repugnant, we would be continually navel gazing and introspective. God wants us out in the world telling the world the wonderful news of our forgiveness. By the way, even our righteous deeds are dirty rags to God. There is nothing righteous in us. All we can do is obey God and follow Jesus.
---frances008 on 7/24/08


We are clean in the sight of God Almighty because of the covering of Jesus' blood.---Betty5357

Nope, Jesus said to clean the inside first.

No sin to repent?
You sin everyday. You only repent once for each sin.

Matthew 23:25-26 "Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites, You cleanse the outside of cup and dish, but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup, so that the outside also my be clean."

He isn't going to tell the Scribes and Pharisees how to clean, and decide to clean us by covering the blacken sin.

No, Jesus washes us inside by His Blood.
The Blood is like soap. It takes away the sin.

No covering stuff.
---Nicole on 7/23/08


Frances, Jesus does take away all my sins.

So far, all my sins have been forgiven by Jesus' blood.

I am still living, right? Tomorrow I will have new sins to ask for forgiveness.

Tomorrow night, Jesus still took away all my sins.
If I live until next week, I shall have more sins. This process continues until I die.

I told the IRS, I paid my taxes, on April 16th.
Does the IRS think I am speaking about past taxes or past and future taxes?

Can I pay taxes on future earnings?

Can I confess to Jesus for all my sins today and tomorrow?

God isn't stupid.

Most christains want an easy salvation with no responsability.---wayne

How right you are Wayne, how right you are.
---Nicole on 7/23/08


Wayne, it explains so much. Why do so many people hate Christians? If we were deluded poor people all going to the same place as the atheists and Satanists, then everyone would feel sorry for us. But people persecute Christians, and kill them and their families. They know that Christians have a better hope than themselves. It is jealously.
---frances008 on 7/23/08


Wayne, where does it say in the Bible that believers will face judgement? They go before God to receive the reward of eternal life. Some of them become helpers of God on Judgement Day.
---frances008 on 7/23/08


Wayne, I have a problem living as Jesus did, because of the sin nature I inherited from Adam and Eve. This means I slip into sin without my permission. However, when it comes to deciding to choose cowardness and disobedience or courage and obedience, I can choose the last one because I know that no matter the cost in this life to me and my family, I have an eternal home waiting for me. Without this security, I would be tempted to just do the minimum for God. With the promise I am bound to do my best because this life truly is not the one that counts. I look forward to watching Jesus' enemies be put under his feet.

Wayne, I am sorry to say that SDA's are following the doctrines of Catholics, works for salvation. You say protestants do also, but not all protestants do. all SDA's. Works for salvation, the keeping of the law.

Second, John 10:9 Jesus is speaking "I am the door. If anyone enter by Me, he will be saved and will go in an out and find pasture." A far cry from what you said. "Most Christians want an easy salvation" you say. It is not what we want that we get. It is what God wants that we get. If God doesn't want to have mercy He is not obligated to have mercy. It is after all God that saves, and not man who save themselves.
---Mark_V. on 7/23/08


Frances, If Jesus took all of your sins away, why are you still going to face judgment? What does John 10:9 really mean? It means we must live the way Jesus lived. Keep the law and the commandments. If christains think they are saved because of a prayer saying come into my heart and be my savior, then they have alot to learn. protestants take cheap shots with catholics, but yet you came out from rcc and have most of your traditions from them. If Jesus is your savior, then live as he did. I bet you will have a problem with that, because most christains want an easy salvation with no responsability.
---wayne on 7/23/08


Right, Nicole, if Jesus takes away our sins by his death on the cross, why do you go and report all your sins to a priest, and why do you say that you need Holy Communion at least once a year in order to remain in a state of grace?
---frances008 on 7/22/08


nicole and duane,
the bible says that we are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ. Under his blood, we are sinners blackened with sin. Jesus didn't take sin away or we wouldn't need to repent because there wouldn't be any sin left to repent of. We are clean in the sight of God Almighty because of the covering of Jesus' blood. It is a shame though that we are trying to spread the good news and choose to disagree over one word. I think that we all agree about Jesus being the one and only way to Heaven.

eloia
you are sooooo right.

Certainly there's only ONE WAY to Heaven. Jesus' blood is the only covering for your sin and mine. Only The Perfect Son of God could atone for our sin..which MUST be covered and cleansed since NO SIN is allowed in God's presence.. Jesus is THE way and THE light...NO ONE comes to the Father but by the blood of Jesus Christ. All other "savior's" are dead and they graves full of their bones....ONLY Christ rose from the dead...and assended to SIT (work finished) at the right hand of God ON THE THRONE. AND..He's coming again to judge the living and the dead..to reward his children and judge those who reject Him to instead choose their own pholosphy of being worthy, thus to be DOOMED ETERNALLY
---eloia on 7/18/08


Nicole is correct. The blood of Jesus does not cover our sin, but rather washes them away.
The blood of Bulls and goats covered the Jews in the old covenant.
Here from Romans 4 are two verses
7-Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8-Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Verse seven applied to the Jews of the old covenant.
Verse eight applies to you and me in this age in of the new Covenant.
---Mima on 7/16/08


Right on, Nicole,
Blood of bulls and goats cover sin, Jesus blood took sin away....Amen
---duane on 7/15/08


Jesus' death did not cover our sins.

His death took away our sin. Cleaned us.
He didn't make us white as snow by covering our sins.

That's like saying if you paint over a dirty white shirt with white paint it is clean. No, it is still dirty, but now underneath white paint.

You have to wash the shirt, and you will have no need to paint over the shirt.

Jesus cleasned us completely.

He is not in the covering business.
---Nicole on 7/13/08

GOD CANNOT BE IN THE PRESENTS OF SIN. God cannot even look at sin because He is so holy. Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice to cover our sins. We are made white as snow by the covering of our sin with the blood of Jesus. Jesus is now and always will be the only way to the Father which is in heaven. Anybody can proclaim the word in any way they want to, but God tells our heart what the right was is.
---Betty5357 on 7/12/08


john 14:6:JESUS TOLD HIM,"I AM THE WAY ,THE TRUTH ,AND THE LIFE.NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME" Jesus didn't say He's a way.truth,and life but THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. He's your only path to God (to heaven).instead of thinking how limited that is,think how wonderful is that God has made it possible for you to be saved! all you have to do is accept it.then eternal life is yours!!
---grace on 6/18/08


Rhonda, where besides our Bible, that it is written by your Church stating Jesus is the only way.
Every one can say they believe this. But, for some reasons other Churches will not put this in writing. Some people with the Bible states other ways to Heaven. If you are Buddist, Budda will get U to Heaven. Hindu, any god will get U there. "All it takes is love. Jesus is love so Love gets U to Heaven." U can't tell me you never heard this before. People change the meanings to the Bible daily.
---Nicole on 6/9/08


"Christ is the way to salvation to enter into the Kingdom of God where all those who have ever lived will be resurrected to eternal life to REIGN with Christ on Earth" Ronda you are the first person other than myself that I have ever heard say that. We statements differ only in this, I say through 'Christ' we enter into the Kingdom of God within and by the sacrificial atonement of Jesus and our belief, acknowledgment and confession of that atonement we will enter the kingdom of Heaven on earth.

Yes, Jesus is the way, for through HIM we are made righteous. Jesus took sin away so all men can enter into glory. Believe on HIM. HE is your only hope.
---duane on 6/7/08


Am I the only one to see what the true meaning of this is? Does not Jesus state that He is the door and that one MUST abide in His words and the ten commandments (which HE gave by the way)? I see it: Jesus' words are truth and in them we are saved (set free).
---james on 6/7/08


Nicole, the person I am refering to who rejects and denies Christ as being the only to God is not, nor is their church Roman Catholic.

---Rhonda on 6/6/08


Nicole,
Let me get this right. The Roman Catholic Church has it in writing that Jesus is the only way to heaven? I'm not Catholic, however the same thing is written in my Bible. It took 2000 years for the Vatican to declare what others throughout the centuries already knew?
---Ken on 6/5/08


Rob, the biggest Church in the USA is the RCC. Only She has it in WRITING that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Others voice this, but no official writing on the matter. Bible? Yes, but we all know how some twists the Bible into saying there are other ways to go to heaven. Some say love, kind and good. But in the Catechism of the Catholic Church we say only Jesus. In fact twice in the year 2000 and 2007, The Vatican again declared the unchanging Truth that only through Jesus is one saved.
---Nicole on 6/3/08


Yes, Christ is the only way to be saved.

Yet the individual who claims to have the largest church in the United States denies and rejects this.

I guess this person is only concerned with getting large numbers in their church, and can care less about God's Truths.

I know I am off the subject. I mean I know and understand that. If you knew that the living God was watching you while you are out there would you do 2/3 of the stuff that you do? Would you do these rotten things, beating people on their heads, if you knew that the living, true, God was watching you. Why, you would have to be a fool. Now, isn't that the truth. No fear of God no regard for man. My God is a God, a just God, and He loves justice. Stop the abuse of my people.

He is the Only Way.
If you don't spend any time with Him, you don't know Him.
Jesus heals, then He corrects. When He corrects, you go and sin no more because you don't want to. You want to stay close to Jesus because He is the Only Way that you will ever see God.
---Ulrika on 4/30/08


Jesus is our FOUNDATION, but having His spirit in our heart and mind (2 Corinthians 1:22 and 5:5, Ephesians 1:14, Romans 12:2) is the guarantee (hardly ever taught in traditional Christianity) of having what Jesus has to offer. Jesus did not just become the sacrifice for our sins, He also left God's eternal spirit for us to learn GODLINESS. We must learn (and live) a clear division between right and wrong/evil so that the change from good to evil is abrupt/sudden (James 1:17) with no middle ground.
---greg on 4/30/08


"Living water" (John 7:38, Revelation 7:16) baptism in our hearts is not what John the Baptist had to offer, but the "rivers" that also flowed from Christ's side genuinely make us the NEW CREATION that Jesus wants.

Scripture is a collection of what God said long ago, but the true Body Of Christ shall live by every word that PRESENTLY proceeds from His mouth to each one of us in our own lives, and to those outside the true Body, their chosen truth is in PARABLES (Mark 4:11).
---greg on 4/30/08


God was very gracious to humanity in CREATION (His first act/gift of grace to humanity). He was also very gracious in sending His son. And leaving His spirit for us to learn from was also very gracious of Him.

Mankind has always taken God's three acts of grace and replaced them with it's own teachings and efforts (the teachings of the SIXTH day creation...666). The spirit of 666 (the babylon of the heart) was always comfortably/conveniently believed to be only a FUTURE concern.

JESUS compared our dedication to Him as a total death to self.

Luk 9:23 And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
---Samuel on 4/30/08


The STRONG delusion is one of humanity's own choosing (because of our rejection of truth/Lord, John 14:6).

Aside from His three gracious gifts, "God is ONE" (Galatians 3:20) and the "WHOLE" fullness of God is in JESUS (Colossians 2:9), no matter how scholars/anyone would like to argue this with intellectual rhetoric.

Ezekiel 14:4-8 (the KJV correctly translates the word "according") shows that the DOCTRINES OF THE HEART have caused us to accept the delusion.
---greg on 4/30/08


M y pastor and the Bible teach in his sermoms that the only way to enter Heaven is you must be saved thru the Blood and the recieveing of Jesus Christ as lord and Savior
---lawre3763 on 4/30/08


Jesus did not come to bring 'peace of mind' so that everyone could continue doing whatever they wish (Luke 12:51), He came to cause a division in our minds between good and evil/wrong.

Christianity has always been taught TEXTUALLY, not SPIRITUALLY, and in a very partisan manner (Philippians 1:17) so that it is 'convenient' to attract membership in churches (money) and allow for a carefree lifestyle.

In "the last days" (Acts 2:17), we need to learn a "MORE EXCELLENT WAY" (1 Corinthians 12:31) and "the GREATEST of these" (1 Corinthians 13:13).

Spiritual faith should be borne out of LOVE (I have faith in the laws of physics, but I don't love them). True Christianity is not a faith, it is a LOVE (God is LOVE).
---greg on 4/30/08


Everyone was given their own measure of faith (Romans 12:3) and that "faith" is between yourself and God (Romans 14:22) so that God may be EVERYTHING to you (1 Corinthians 15:28)...IF you make the PERSONAL choice for intimacy with God (instead of 'COMMANDS/SIN/LAW/TEXT/FAITH' and pastors, scholars, commentaries, etc.

The GODLY Christian should "WALK BY THE SPIRIT", not faith (Galatians 5:16 and 25).
---greg on 4/30/08


If we show partiality to the brethren in Christ (special treatment), we sin (and they should not request special treatment/favoritism, James 2:1 and 2:9). THEY ALSO should "live quietly" not bothering anyone (1 Thessalonians 4:11).

Our personal relationship with JESUS must be nurtured (the brethren didn't die on the cross, neither did the pastors or the bible).

The Lord wants to have a personal relationship with us (the REAL us). He "yearns jealously" (James 4:5).
---greg on 4/30/08


Being dedicated to knowing, understanding and communicating truth (objective truth) is more important for the Christian than is realized (2 Thessalonians 2:10, "AND SO BE SAVED").

God is the truth of ALL reality (the universe).

It is mankind's 'lack of dedication to truth' that has always caused the "STRONG delusion", but also it is man's insistence on continuing to do whatever is comfortable regardless of merit.

Christina.
Clarification-The topic statement-,"any effort to be saved and reach heaven (except)by Jesus is folly."
My previous post indicates many many ascended prior to Jesus's life on earth.
Many believe in no resurection until after Jesus's time lived on earth.
---earl on 4/30/08


Hebrews chapter 6 also explains that JESUS is our foundation for eternal life (our ONLY foundation) and that we should not try to replace that foundation with our own efforts (works/deeds and intellectual/scholarly accomplishment), for if we do that, repentance IN CHRIST becomes impossible.

At the final judgement, Jesus will not be unjust and overlook that apostasy. We must move on to a more intimate and truly personal relationship with Jesus (grow spiritually).
---greg on 4/30/08


Earl, you wrote of those who "lived pre Jesus era..." and how they were not deprived of heaven. Everyone one of them knew the Lord and looked forward to the coming of Christ. Just 1 reference:
John 8:56
Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day, he saw it and was glad."
Also no one lived pre Jesus since He WAS from the beginning and through Him all things were made

---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 4/29/08


You have stated the truth. It is clear and simple. Noone goes to heaven without knowing the Lord Jesus and believing Him to be the son of God and propitiation for our sins as well as resurected and in charge:) We know that He is fully God because he tells us so in the Bible. He was from the beginning and made all things. His Spirit (also God from the beginning) is alive and in believers.
---jody on 4/29/08


Comment.
Abraham was found to be righteous.
Enoch ascended.
Moses ascended.
Elijah ascended.
Those who lived pre Jesus era was not deprived of heaven.
Jesus presented a newer, comprehensive,revealing revelation of his Father.
John,in his visions, saw a multitude of ascended beings who already overcome the beast.
Jesus revealed a greater personal God and by doing so revealed the continuing existance and revelation of God-I am the way-the passage doors to heaven.
