Where does Jesus say....

that his religion is the only one to follow? I know he said that you should believe in his father, but where does he say that the way he is teaching is the only way to heaven? I am not asking to start drama (even though I know it will). I am just asking because I don't know where/if he ever did. I also remember being taught that religion is a bad thing because most religions teach intolerance. And, the way I look at it, Jesus was the most tolerant man to ever walk the face of the Earth.

  • Well, in Exodus 20, in the beginning of the Ten Commandments,in verses 3 and 4, God says: "You shall have no other Gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them". Pretty clear and straightforward,if you ask me.

  • I know the first thing that will come up is the verse that says

    John 14: 6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known who I am, then you would have known who my Father is. From now on you know him and have seen him!”

    This is usually the verse that Christians give when asked "how do you know you're right".

    There are a few others, but this is the most common one.

  • The Exodus writings don't have anything to do with Jesus. The OP is asking about the teachings of Jesus.

  • Since Jesus is God in human form,and has been around since the beginning of time, and we still follow the Ten Commandments today ,they have EVERYTHING to do with Him.

  • And, yes, just to pacify you, I agree, John 14:6 pretty much says it all as well. In Jesus' own words, speaking of Himself, He does say: I am THE way, THE truth,and THE Life,NO ONE comes to the Father, except through me. I agree 100% if that doesn't say what He means, then I don't know what does.

  • Her questions says..."Where does Jesus say..." Exodus doesn't discuss Jesus' teachings. Can we please focus on the question asked?

  • And, once again, I'll say this, it's not about religion. It's about a personal relationship with Jesus. Religion has nothing to do with that.

  • As I said, Jesus has been around since the beginning, every prophesy in the Old Testament focuses on Jesus,and so I answered it. If you don't like my answer, you don't have to keep reading them and commenting in such an ugly way. No one's forcing you to read them.

  • But religion has everything to do with it. Following Jesus' techings is a religion. Just like Buddism and Hinduism. They follow the teachings of thier leaders don't they? I still don't remember Jesus saying anything about intolarence.

  • The first time Jesus is mentioned in the Bible is in Genesis 1:24-Then God said "let US make man in OUR image." He is speaking of the Holy Trinity, of which Jesus is a part. So, as I said, He's been around always. Just cause He doesn't make an appearance till the New Testament doesn't mean He wasn't always here.
