Which Religion is the Correct Way to Heaven?
By David J. Stewart | January 2010
Matthew 7:14, “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
The age old question is: Which religion is correct? There are thousands of different religions, cults and denominations throughout the world. Everyone can't be right, can they? Most religions teach that everyone else is going to Hell except them. So obviously someone must be wrong. Catholics believe that salvation is found only in the Catholic Church. Baptists teach that Catholics are going to Hell. Jehovah Witnesses teach that their organization is the only true way to Heaven. Seventh-Day Adventists claim that everyone else is Antichrist except them.
So who is correct? Which way is the right way? Eternity is forever, without end. We've only got one shot at getting this right. We don't want to choose the wrong religion. What do we do?
I sincerely believe that if you'll here me out, that you'll see the truth. My name is not important, for the message I speak is VERY important. The Book of Hebrews in the Bible is anonymous. God didn't tell us who wrote it, because the message was VERY important. The blood of Jesus Christ is the subject of Hebrews. From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible proclaims the precious blood of Jesus Christ as the only way of salvation. I'm getting ahead of myself here, but I like to get right to the point. That's the way God wrote the Bible, i.e., brutally honest.
I have been a born-again Christian for most of my adult life. I have studied most mainstream religions. I have learned much, and I believe I can greatly help anyone who is seeking for solid answers in this uncertain world.
Firstly, every religion today can be traced to an individual or group who started it. This is an easy way to weed out which religions are the WRONG one's. The founders of most mainstream religions in the U.S. today were founded by 33rd degree occult Freemasons. Such religions include: Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Christian Science, Seventh-Day Adventism, Scientology and Oral Robert's Charismatic Movement. Sadly, even the Baptists have been infiltrated by the occult. One-third of the Freemasonry membership in the U.S. are Southern Baptists. That isn't to say that all Freemasons are unsaved. It just means that Satan has infiltrated the Church through carnal believers who are straddling the fence between God and the sinful world. Freemasonry is a demonic cult, which should be avoided by all Christians. Everyone of the religions I just named have been infiltrated by occultism. With the exception of many good Baptist churches still in existence today, every other religion I've just mentioned are false religions.
Certainly, there are some Baptist churches which teach a false Gospel as well, such as the lie of Lordship Salvation. This is the unbiblical teaching that a person must forsake their sinful lifestyle to be saved. If that were true, then no one could be saved, for who can give up all their sins? Only Jesus is perfect (1st Peter 2:22). We are all guilty sinners, just as God's Law reveals (Romans 3:19). I won't belabor the point with a long, boring dissertation that the reader likely won't read There is NOT one religion that can get you to Heaven. Which religion is the correct way to heaven? None of them. Salvation is found in a Person—The Lord Jesus Christ. No religion can save you from your sins.
The Catholic Church is of the Devil. They falsely teach that a priest, a sinful man himself, has the power to forgive sin. No Sir, that is not what the Bible teaches. 1st Timothy 2:5 is very clear that Jesus is the only MEDIATOR between God and men. Likewise, the Lutheran religion claims that their ministers have the power to forgive people's sins. No man has the power to forgive sin. Only God can forgive sin!
Seventh-Day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses both believe that Jesus was only Michael, the archangel. That is a demonic teaching not found in the Scriptures. Jesus always was, is, and always will be Almighty God. Colossians 2:9 states, “For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” The Godhead walked this earth in the fleshly body of our Lord and Savior. Jesus forgave sin as only God can do (Matthew 9:2). Jesus received worship as only God is entitled to (Matthew 8:2).
Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientologists and Christian Scientists all deny the deity of Jesus, i.e., that Jesus is God Almighty. In Revelation 1:8, Jesus even claimed to be THE ALMIGHTY! Anyone who denies the deity of Jesus is NOT saved. In John 10:33, the Bible plainly reveals that Jesus claimed to be God. John 1:1-3, 14 teach that the Godhead became flesh and dwelt amongst mankind. Yet, humanity killed their own Savior. Can you imagine... the Creator of the universe came to dwell amongst His own creation and they murdered Him? That is exactly what happened.
I don't need to write a book to briefly expose all of the mainstream religions today as false. The Bible is extremely clear that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Heaven (John 14:6; Acts 4:10-12). By the way, I only quote from the King James Bible. All modern Bible translations have been corrupted by Satan. This was made possible by the greed of publishers who wanted to water-down God's Word, to make it marketable to a much wider customer base. hence, the word “Godhead” has been entirely stricken from all modern Bibles. The King James Bible mentions Godhead in 3 places (Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20 and Colossians 2:9). The Godhead (Trinity) is a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith which is being rejected by many false religions today.
It is easy to identify the Seventh-Day Adventists as a false cult, because their religion was born out of a failed prophecy by a wayward minister named, Miller, in 1844. Miller predicated that Jesus would bodily return. People sold their homes, gave away their worldly possessions, quit their jobs and were made fools when the Lord DIDN'T return. To save face, a cult was birthed called Seventh-Day Adventism, which teaches that it was all a big misunderstanding, and that Jesus actually entered into the Holy Place in Heaven to continue His work of redemption. The Bible teaches in Hebrews 10:10 that Jesus was offered ONCE for all. Christ's work of redemption was finished 2,00 years ago. Seventh-Day Adventists are liars. Their religions is a works-based cult, that requires their followers to keep the Sabbath, tithe and live according to the Scriptures in order to get to Heaven. They teach that anyone who goes to church on Sunday is of the Devil. Of course, they are very wrong. This cult is a paved road to damnation.
Religion wants to fit us with glasses; the Lord wants to open our eyes.
Biblical salvation is found in the righteousness of Jesus Christ; and not in our self-righteousness in any way. It's been said that there's 2 types of religions in the world: DO and DONE. That is, you either believe that a person must DO something to get to Heaven; or else you believe that it is DONE, by Jesus, and we simply trust Christ to save us. The Bible teaches that redemption is DONE, Jesus paid our sin debt in full. 1st Peter 1:18-19 tells us that Jesus' literal blood redeems us. Religion is man's interpretation of the Scriptures; but God never told us to join a religion. That's right! There's not one verse in the entire Bible that instructs us to join a religion, nor a denomination, nor a 501c3 government licensed business.
Jesus commanded us in John 5:39 to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES!!! This is where the solid answers to life's perplexing questions are found. When you've exhausted all that this world has to offer, and you've lost everything except your faith in God, then you will begin to see God in a different light. The Word of God is more than a Book to me, it is my life. I love the Bible. 1st Peter 1:23 tells us that it is the Seed of God's precious Word by which we are born-again. When a person places their faith in the precious Savior who died and rose again for our sins, then we are saved (Acts 10:43). The Scriptures introduce Jesus to the lost and sinful world. There can be no salvation apart from the good news of Christ crucified and risen. The Jews in the wilderness heard the Gospel which Moses preached, but most of them had no faith, and tragically went to Hell in their unbelief (Hebrews 4:2).
If you study every religion today, it can be traced to a mortal man. The Bible records Abraham at 2,000 B.C. trusting upon the Lord, and his faith was counted for righteousness (Genesis 15:6). Christianity goes back to the beginning of time when Abel offered up a lamb to God. People in the Old Testament were saved by looking to the coming Messiah, and we are save today by looking to the same Messiah, the Christ, Who gave His precious blood for our sins.
The religion of Islam began in the 8th century with a Godless man named Muhammad, who worshipped the moon; hence, the crescent moon in Islam. Muslims also pray in synch with the moon's cycles. It is a religion if bondage and uncertainty. Allah is a false god, who has no son according to the Qur'an. The Bible teaches, in sharp contrast, that God has a Son, Jesus (John 3:16). Mormonism was founded in 1830 by Joseph Smith. The Jehovah's Witnesses were founded in 1874 by Charles Taze Russell. Catholicism began under Constantine in the Roman Empire during the 4th century. Scientology was founded by Ron Hubbard, who called the most infamous Satanist of the 20th century, Aleister Crowley, “My good friend.” There is a ton of facts and information exposing the evils of all mainstream religions today.
The New World Order has been in planning for centuries. In fact, this was the sin of the people at the Tower of Babel. Men have always sought to unite together in rebellion against God. Charles Russell of the Jehovah's Witnesses actually wrote a corrupt Bible, titled, the New World Translation. Is that a clue or what? Freemasons are the primary perpetrators of the conspiracy to achieve a New World Order. America's very founding was for the purpose of achieving this new World Order.
Do not confuse Christianity with the founding of America, for our founding fathers at best were spiritually confused men, mostly unbelievers, who frequently voiced disdain and contempt for the Word of God. Many of them were occult members, such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. America was indeed founded by Freemasons who had the purpose of achieving a New World Order in mind. This is amazingly and accurately evidenced in the book Legions of Satan by Jonathan Williams, 1781, in which he quotes British General Cornwallis as having said to George Washington (after losing the Revolutionary War to him)...
And so it is today! The New World Order is here, being formed under the pretense of a bogus "War On Terror." Zionism is taught in most of our churches, and never a word of critique is spoken against the blasphemous Jewish religion of Judaism, or the vile Talmud which permits priestly sex with 3-year old girls. One need look no further than a one-dollar bill to find the all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect. Cornwallis was correct! The sad irony of all this is that 99.9% of the American people are woefully ignorant of these truths. Truth is certainly stranger than fiction.
Today, just as hundreds of years ago in 1776, our nation's leaders worship and speak praise of a god who is not the God of the Bible.
You've just read information that you likely won't find elsewhere, at least not all in one place. Every religion today is being used by the Banksters, i.e., the global ruling elite, to train the masses to accept the New World Order. If you reject all of them and SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES as Jesus instructed, then you cannot be deceived. The best way to expose the darkness is to shine the Light of God's Word. The Bible is a Lamp to show the way (Psalm 119:105).
Salvation happens when a person acknowledges their guilt of sin before God, believing on Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, to forgive their sins. Genuine faith excludes all forms of self-righteousness, including water baptism, Holy Eucharist, confession, good works, church membership, et cetera. Salvation of the Lord. Jesus is the only way to Heaven.
A lot of people profess faith in Christ, but they are not saved, because they have added something to their faith. Catholics all profess faith in Christ; but they also believe that keeping the Seven Sacraments are necessary for salvation. That is a false Gospel (Ephesians 2:8-9). Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Baha'i' Faith all require good works for salvation. The Bible teaches that Jesus did it all. Romans 4:5 plainly tells us, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” This is the heart of the matter. Jesus is the One Who justifieth the ungodly. We are all ungodly, which is why we need a Savior (Galatians 3:24). Our faith is counted for righteousness. Amen!
We are saved by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS (Matthew 6:33). All God the Father asks is that we come for salvation through the Son of God, Jesus, the Christ.
John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 1:12, “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.”
No religion is the correct religion. Jesus never started a Baptist Church, nor a Presbyterian Church. The Bible simply speaks of “the Church.” The Body of Christ is composed of saved people, i.e., born-again people, from all around the world. There are Christians who are Methodist, and others who are Baptist; but it is NOT the religious denomination that gets them to Heaven. If all you ever do is have churchianity without Christianity, then you're in serious trouble when you die. Salvation is NOT found in any religion; but rather, in a Person—The Lord Jesus Christ!
John 8:32 and 36, “And ye shall know the
truth, and the truth shall make you
free ... If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
