    I found this online...it's pretty cool, and explains very well why I believe it's impossible to be a Christian, and think Christ is not the way to God....

    Not trying to toss a wrench in the gears of the thread D..
    But to answer the question, " Is Jesus the Only way to Heaven?".
    I'd say without reading the post, it all depends on what heaven is to
    the individual.

    No - it doesn't depend on what Heaven is to someone - whether they choose to believe in it or not doesn't change the fact of its existence...

    I'd agree with that manu, and I like the "if" part.

    "if" was not used to imply that there may or may not be a heaven if was used in the context of "if....then...." logic statements....

    if there is a heaven as jesus says....a lot of budists and muslims are going to hell

    Yes, and "if" jesus was what he said "then" most people will be joining them.

    Reminds me of an olde joke....

    a guy is walking around heaven with st peter ....it is his first day....

    he asks "who is that over there tending the cattle?" oh that is the Hindus

    "and those raking leaves?" Buddhists

    "and those guys?" Muslims

    "and there?" the Jews

    and over there are the protestants and there the Lutherans

    they continue their walk in silence and come to a great wall

    the man asks what's on the other side?

    st peter replies, " the Catholics they like to think they are the only ones up here"
