Driving is unavoidable in our rural area. Therefore, I choose the route to town depending on the day.

I travel a particular road if it’s raining. I choose another if I need cell service. I choose yet another if I’m late and drive faster, for that road is less traveled.

I noticed that one section of the road shows up on our GPS as an unidentifiable road.

What road do you travel?

Do you automatically seek the fastest or simplest route?

Is it easier to continue along the same road we’ve always known, so we can mindlessly travel?

It is difficult to seek out the road less traveled in life.

Some may even believe that all roads lead to the same place. The starting and ending point are the same, but the paths may differ.

The Bible does not always match the culture. Does the Bible teach that all religious roads lead to the same place?

Scripture talks about roads, often using “path’ and “way” as synonyms for life.

Proverbs 14:12

It teaches one can take the wrong road: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”

Matthew 7:13-14

Jesus said,” Enter by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many 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.”

He reduced life to two options: a difficult, narrow road to heaven and an easy broad road to hell.

Because of who Jesus is,

Christianity is not just another religion.

It is presumptuous for any man to invent a religion and then tell others they can be saved or condemned by it. Only Jesus can say, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Because of who Jesus is,

Christianity is not just another religion.

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Ponder the path of your feet. Proverbs 4:26a

(Paragraph was taken from an article, “Do all roads lead to heaven.”)

Until next time, Pam.
