Why do we have to go through Jesus to talk to God? If God loves us all as much as he says he does, why do we have to ask the son to go to his father for permission. Again, this was something I talked to my dad about. And to illustrate it for him, I told him it would be like his dad (when he was alive obviously) saying that my dad and his younger brothers had to go through the oldest to ask him something. I mean, does that really make sense. Or, think of it this way. If you have more then one child, it would be like your telling your younger kids that they had to ask your oldest to ask you something. Get it. So, why is that?

You can talk to God directly. As loving Father that's what He wants. For us not to be afraid of him, but go to him.

Because somewhere in the bible it says so, & people take that literally. They want to believe that Jesus is the only way because it makes them feel more special, like they have the correct method to god & no one else does. This can improve faith in some people. Feeling that they are SO lucky to be one of the "special ones" that gets to go to heaven. They see themselves as the true seeker who found the right way. If EVERYONE believed that all religions could get you to god, then it would take that extra special spark out of their belief. They would no longer be the only lucky ones who get to go to heaven, which would drive certain people to doubt their faith & religion. Saying Jesus is the only way, makes a barbed wire fence that you can only get into, but not out. They are the elite special religion that gets to go to heaven (in their minds) and they want to keep it that way.
