I was recently speaking with a Buddhist, who was telling me about his view of religion. He said something to this effect, “I believe that we are all on a quest for what religion best works for each of us. There are many ways to God. You simply need to follow the one that you think is best.” This is the philosphy of many. This is the philosophy of many religions.
However, this isn’t Christianity. Jesus taught that He was the only way to God. He said, ” “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). Those who believe in Christ are exclusive–nobody else comes through a back door.
I tried to explain this to my Buddhist friend. … I don’t think that he understood.
