Live By The Word

The Exclusivity Of Christianity( Part 1)

 A couple of years ago, I watched an interview on Larry King show on CNN. There was a famous televangelist quizzed by Larry King. He asked him if Jesus is the only way to heaven. To my chagrin, there was no direct answer from the man. Larry King  again asked him if the worshippers of other religions would not go to heaven as a result of not following Jesus. This man also said, “It is God who decides that”. Of course, God decides who make it to heaven. But He will only decide among those who claim to be Christians…..judging them on their faithfulness. People outside Christ has no consideration at all, according to the Bible. They already chose their path. Unless they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour before death.

But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.(Matt 10:33NIV)


The Bible has made it clear that it is only those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour would make it to Heaven.  I am here to lend my voice with others who are not ashamed to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Those that have not bowed to the politically correct order of our governments. No wonder Jesus said if you deny me, I will deny you. He must be talking about the situation like this. A situation where a believer must be bold and courageous to stand for what he believes; people like Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego and Daniel. Political correctness has shut the mouth of many believers such that many are afraid, to tell the truth, which is in Jesus Christ.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.(Rom1:16NIV)

Of course, you stand the chance of being persecuted, harassed or ultimately killed. But since nothing can be done against the truth, but for the truth. Everything you suffer in the name of Jesus would never be in vain. So please, don’t bury your head in the sand.

So be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you.(1Pet 4:14NLT)

Jesus remains the only way to heaven. It is either His Way or no way at all. He is the mediator between God and man. He is the sacrifice for our sins. He makes mankind  acceptable to God. Human righteousness, morality or set of rules cannot save anyone. Even at our best when we are good, is not good enough or measure up to  God’s standard of righteousness and holiness. Jesus Christ is the covering and atonement of sins.

All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature, we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much,(Eph 2:3-4NLT)

The point I’m making is this, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, don’t be apologetic to say Jesus is the only way. Because truly He is! The world may believe in a plurality of ways, but we are not. And in case you are reading this and you don’t believe in one Way, please pray to God to reveal to you the truth. If you ask Him with an open heart and genuine heart, He will surely answer the longing of your heart.

Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.(Jer33:3NLT)

If you have not  received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, this is the right time to do so. You are not reading this post by accident. Only confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour; prayerfully and from the depth of your heart. If you have done that, believe your sins are forgiven, and you are now a child of God. For your spiritual growth, you need to join yourself to a Bible believing Church in your area.

  1. I wrote a post on this topic awhile back. I remembering mentioning that all religions cannot be right because, for example, some believe in reincarnation, whilst others do not. It is impossible for both to be right! The idea that all religion are valid is ridiculous and is not what Jesus taught.

  2. Waoooo, thank you very much Bro Matthew….. I cannot thank you enough . God bless.

  3. Amen, and amen! Especially in the wake of what appears to be the beginning of fascism here in America, we need to be bolder than ever. You said, “Of course, you stand the chance of being persecuted, harassed or ultimately killed. But since nothing can be done against the truth, but for the truth. Everything you suffer in the name of Jesus would never be in vain. So please, don’t bury your head in the sand.” This has got to be the litmus test for every one who calls themselves a Christian (follower of Christ). May we be found to be genuine in our faith and not allow the world or the devil to keep us from proclaiming the Truth.

  4. Amen and amen ! Thanks for your comment Joe …..well appreciated. Remain blessed.

  5. Matthew, you recently left a comment on Reddit regarding my suffering with back pain and God used you to open my eyes! Despite being a Christian for 42 years, I believed God could heal me but I didn’t know 100% that God would heal me. You were so right! Thank u for reaching all the way across the pond to minister to me. I am now believing God WILL heal me and I will tell you on Facebook as soon as it happens! ALSO, my Grandmother was from South Hampton!

    • Thank you for this comment, I appreciate you letting me know that God was able to use me to help you – it is a great encouragement. It is good to know that people do sometimes listen, as so often people are quick to give their reasons why God probably won’t heal. I agree with what Richard said in his reply – you are healed. Listen to as much good teaching on healing as you can. The link in the article is a good place to start, this link will also give you even more teaching to build your faith –
      there is a search, where you can select categories such as ‘healing’:

  6. Hi Therese, I believe Bro Matthew will see your comments here. The truth is, you are already healed. Jesus was striped for your healing. Continue to claim your healing and hold on to your faith regardless of how you are feeling or any doctor report. Your testimony is now in Jesus name. Stay blessed!

  7. Its a treasure and glorious privilege to know the Lord. What a joy. Thank you Lord for your goodness. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Thanks for your comment Bisi, Remain blessed
