Jesus is the gateway to eternal life

Matthew 7:13-14
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

It is not popular in our modern world to make absolute truth claims, especially when those claims are that Jesus is the only way to God and eternal life. As Christians we need to speak the truth in love to a lost and dying world. There are not many ways to God, there is only one and that is through accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross and His gift of salvation. We are not helping people by not telling them the truth so as not to offend them, they may curse us now but should they respond and accept Jesus, they will bless us for all eternity.

Romans 10:8-13
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
