Thanks for the post! I am looking at the title question “Why don’t all paths lead to heaven?” I think we would all like this to be true at face value. In that, most likely, we all know someone dear to us who believes something different than we do. In addition, Jesus claimed an exclusive path to heaven. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’” - John 14:6
Christianity is not alone. Islam would also claim exclusivity. So would many other religions. What about someone who says they accept all religions as true? In that case, to be consistent, they would have to exclude the exclusives religions because they do not conform with that individual’s view. By accepting everything they logically contradict most faiths and their own view point. In that case they actually reject everything. They just may not realize it.
What should we as followers of Christ do? Dialog with love and reason. Give good evidence to the truth that Jesus claimed with a cheerful and winsome spirit.
Cheers and blessings,
