"Way to Heaven"
Is Through the Narrow Gate?
Is there more than one way to Heaven? According to polls, a surprising number of people believe there is. Even more surprising is that some of our modern day Christian churches are not confronting this issue.
The only reliable information concerning how to be saved can be found in God's written Word, not in the opinions of men. We must rely only upon His way. "The Way" was a designation for early Christians. It was "The Way" then, and is "The Way to Heaven" now.
Christianity itself rests upon a "plan of salvation," so easy that even a child can understand. This perfect plan must be maintained; else, those who follow the wrong teachings will spend eternity in Hell.
God's written Word tells us that the only way to Heaven is through what Jesus did on the cross.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16)
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:5-7)
Based on the above Scripture the way to Heaven can only be found in God's Word.
Jesus said, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matt 7:13)
Only one Way to Heaven
According to Scripture, humanity is born spiritually separated from God, but God has provided a way to end this separation; that is by Faith in Jesus Christ, and what He did on the Cross.
The way to Heaven and is through faith in Jesus, the small gate, and narrow road.
Peter said to allow God's Word to be "...a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts". (2 Peter 1:19)
Learn to search the Scriptures, and then believe what you find. Rely on God's Word; it will show you the way to Heaven.
In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (John 3:3)

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29) I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God." (John 1:34)

I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." (Luke 18:17)
