Sermon Notes July 31, 2022

Don’t All Roads Lead to God?                               “A Faith for Following”

1. False Idea: All roads lead to God. All spiritual paths are equally _________________________________?                             

John 14:6  Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 

Acts 4:10,12  Then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

2. Christianity is NOT saying every other religion is completely _________________________,

3. If all truth is God’s truth, then it remains truth wherever we ______________________________________.

4. If you say it doesn’t matter ______________________  as long as you are sincere, you might be sincerely wrong.

John 3:18-19  Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

John 5:24  “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears My word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

5. How can a loving God send someone to hell? He doesn’t. We _________________________.

6. Definition of Grace: Grace is that which is freely ___________  and totally ________________.

 

Romans 5:7-8    Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:

John 1:14  The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 

1 Timothy 2:5  For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 

Romans 6:23   For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
