Many people feel there are many ways to get to heaven, but the Bible is certain about the uniqueness of Jesus. This is not an exclusion of all others, but a declaration that ALL people may be included once they come to God on HIS terms.
Christianity is a relationship more than a religion. Religion is our attempt to get to God; while Christianity is God reaching down to us to bring us into relationship with Him.
