    Some say all paths lead to God.

    I believe this statement is true. Am I right or wrong and why?

    Christian Universalism is a source. Many people I've talked to (perhaps you've never heard it), usually New Age or Eastern philosophical types, claim that all paths lead to God, or Christ. I really should have said "God" to make it more mainstream. But it's too late now.

    You put it in quotations so you really should provide a link old chap.

    Quotes gone. You're right. Better?

    This thread is a train wreck, but I did what I could with the OP.

    Not really, now it’s just a stawman argument against Christian Universalism I suppose...


    Edit: correction, you are defending the statement, I apologise.

    The Bible would disagree, unequivocally,

    That’s a little defeatist, it’s just pulling out of the station.

    It’s all a bit vague Tom you’ll have to throw a few more logs on the fire.

    I don't know, you gave me considerable stick last week over liberal Christianity when what you were talking about wasn't what I was talking about.

    I guess if you live by affixing labels to thought, you shall die by affixing labels to thought.

    Metaphorically speaking.

    Straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to life.

    Unless you believe that I AM you will die in your sins

    I am the way the truth and the life

    There is one god and one mediator between man and god

    Etc

    On a side note, just because there is only one route to god, doesn’t mean all the other routes lead to burning in hell for eternity.

    Just clearing that up in case anyone was wondering.

    No, Jesus said He was the Way...not a way, not one of many ways to God, but that He was
    the Way. Only through Jesus do we get to the Father, all other paths might go to God, but
    Jesus is the only one that God has established, not man.

    I believe there is only one route to god, on earth. While we are on earth.
