They say that if you are against the Lord, you will go to hell and be punished. Well then, in other religions they also say that you will go to hell if you do not believe in their god. So then it does not matter which god you believe in because you are going to hell either way. So are we all going to hell?
Your conclusion assumes that every religion is correct and that is not possible. If only one religion is correct, then those people will not go to hell. You are correct that each religion claims to be unique. But they cannot all be the one and only true religion. It is important to realize that one authority is right and the others are wrong. The God of the Bible gives us no choice. He says that He is the only one.
. . . For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me . . . (NASB) Isaiah 46:9
Who Is Correct?
The God of the Bible does not give us a choice in answering the question, “Who is correct?” A bad conclusion is that it does not matter because that conclusion will probably send you to hell. Who is correct? It is a question that many are not interested in investigating. It is a question that I investigated years ago. It is an important one. Let me encourage you to ask God to reveal the truth to you. Ask Him to show you the real God. He will answer your question. You will need to seek Him with all your heart.
You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. “I will be found by you,” declares the LORD . . . (NASB) Jeremiah 29:13-14
Part of the search requires some careful thought. It is not good enough for someone to claim that his/her god is the true one. I had to ask myself what objective facts can I look at in each of these religions? I discovered that the Bible is the only sacred book which contains numerous fulfilled predictions, extensive historical facts, and some surprising scientific data. Since the Bible proved to be accurate in these areas, then I knew that I could trust it in sacred things. I would encourage you to study the following sections at this site: Voice of the Past, Predictions About Christ, and Speaking Out. Some of the things I looked at are presented there. I would also encourage you to read a book called, “The Case For Christ” by Lee Strobel. Lee started off as an agnostic and ended up discovering God. It will also provide some scientific data that is not contained on this site.
Jesus Is Unique?
The Bible also presents stunning concepts about God and reveals that the God of the Bible wants you to know Him as a friend knows a friend. He is more interested in a personal relationship with you than in your performing some duty for HIm. The God of the Bible says that He loves you. What other religion says that God came to earth to die for you? What other religion says that its god became like a man, died, and then returned to life for you? No other religion has this message. What other religion says that you do not have to earn your own salvation in order to go to heaven? The God of the Bible is unique.
The other religions have their sacred books which are not supported with historical, prophetic, or scientific data. In fact many of the statements in some of the other religious books are fanciful and clearly inaccurate. The Bible has withstood the test of criticism and has been proven to be correct. I believe the God of the Bible is the true one. We will be praying for you. May God reveal Himself to you in a remarkable way.
