    Perhaps not a “train wreck” after all Tom.

    After the coming of Christ, EVERY knee will bow and confess Jesus as Lord. Isn’t that amazing.

    And it truly stymies all you hellfire and torture merchants doesn’t it...

    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

    Rom 14:11
    for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”
    Your first one doesn’t even touch the subject.

    But the Romans one is one I do like but not for the reason of supporting the premise in your OP.

    Hmm, not great are they.

    If you cite the verse I will let you off.

    At the risk of being a pain in the ass here, can you please cite the verse of scripture!?

    Tom I think you were right after all.

    About this thread being a train wreck

    Well anyway.

    The bible says all paths lead to God. Think about it.
    Which brings me back to my first post asking you for a citation.

    You really need to buck up with this sort of thing Tom.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been lonely in my entire life now you bring it up. I have friends in various parts of the world, most of whom are non-Christians and I have a good close family some of whom are Christians and some not. My best friend is my wife, and rightly so.

    Shall we talk about our gardens now?

    Straw man was not intentional.

    Interpretation is the key factor.
    There’s anough ( metaphorical) potatoes in the broth to be able see what kind of stew it is.. in my opinion.

    I believe this statement is true. Am I right or wrong and why?
    Tom, you’ve edited the OP to read “God” but not the thread title...

    Now you’re creating a straw man argument.

    I believe the entire bible is “true” (whatever that means within this context), I just don’t believe it’s all literal and it certainly doesn’t mean what some people like to think it means.

    If yes, will you discard those verses?

    I’m NOT sure it says exactly that but it does talk about beings being thrown into a lake of fire. It also mentions whores riding seven headed beasts with ten horns and drinking human blood from a cup.

    Quite evocative stuff

    It's hardly surprising that if you confine yourself to the Bible, then yes, all paths lead to Christ.

    This is not exactly the same as saying that ALL paths lead to Christ. Clearly, some paths lead elsewhere. This is why humans should develop discernment.
    Tom edited the OP from “jesus” to “god”.

    The bible is pretty clear I think ;
    The law brings us to Christ, Christ brings us to god (himself**)

    **god was in Christ reconciling himself .... etc .
