Is There Really Just One True Religion?

Isaiah 45:1-25

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

Clarifying terms
Different religions
…not different denominations

Is Christianity exclusive?
1)    The exclusive claims of Christianity are real!
Isaiah 45:5, “I am the LORD (YHWH), there is no other, apart from me there is no God.”
(see also v 6, 14, 18, 21, 22)
1 Thess 1:9-10
Acts 10
Acts 19
Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” he then goes on to warn about false prophets that are nothing more than wolves in sheep’s clothing leading people astray.
not just a minor point
2)    We all make exclusive claims

Is there any evidence that all religions essentially the same?
Not at all

All religions are not equally good
All religions equally verifiable.

It comes down to truth.
…  not measured in numbers of people who follow
… people can be sincerely wrong.

In seeking truth we should be asking questions.
“I really can’t consider a Christian a good, moral person if he isn’t trying to convert me.”
