Is accepting Jesus the only way for people to get to heaven?
Yes. The Bible clearly identifies Jesus as the only means of salvation (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Philippians 2:9–11). Believing in Jesus and his unique work (Acts 2:37–39; 16:31; Romans 10:9) is the only way to gain access to God’s forgiveness. No number of good deeds can earn a person an eternal reward. No other faith system leads people to the one true God. Some people chafe at such an exclusive stance, but the words of Jesus and the apostles leave no other option (Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5).
John 14:6 Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’
Acts 4:12 ‘Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.’
Philippians 2:9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Acts 2: 37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?’
38 Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptised, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off – for all whom the Lord our God will call.’
Acts 16:31 They replied, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household.’
Romans 10:9 ‘ if you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,
And if you do not believe in Jesus Christ or in God, well, do you think you will be going anywhere when you die? You see, if you don’t believe in these things you must believe in something or someone else. Maybe you think we got here all by chance? If you do then you must believe in evolution and not creation. Think about that. If we did evolve what did we evolve from and from where did that life evolve? Even the scientists don’t know where our universe came from. They say it was a big bang. From what? What exploded? The Bible tells us that God made the heavens and the earth from something that wasn’t there before, something out of nothing! Only God could do that. You may say then who made God? The answer is nobody, He has always been. He has no beginning and He has no end. We have been created in His likeness. He didn’t make an ape then decide to modify His creation, He made everything as you see them, including us.
