What if you stopped at the ice cream shop on a hot summer day only to discover a single flavor for sale?  I know I would not be too excited, and I’m sure the shop would probably go out of business within a week.

When it comes to ice cream, picking your favorite flavor it great; however when it comes to eternal matters, reality is not like a fancy ice cream shop with 67 flavors.  The truth of eternity is not based on my taste or opinions. The truth is true no matter what I want it to be; no matter what I feel.

“But”, argues the skeptic, “There are all kinds of religions to choose from.”  While this is true, having a variety of religions doesn’t mean that all lead to the truth of God.  “But”, responds the skeptic again, “If we are to try to figure out which is true, wouldn’t it take more than a lifetime to thoroughly study every religion?”

Absolutely!

One might then sincerely wonder, “How could we possibly figure out which one is correct?”

The quickest way is to start with Bible.  Not only does it claim to be God’s Word, but it also makes the bold claim that all other religions, including their writings are false.  Not only does the Bible make these amazing claims, but it backs them prophetically, historically, archaeologically, and scientifically. Since the Bible is true, we can assuredly say that it is exclusively and solely God’s Word, making it the shortcut to eternal truth, bypassing all other religions. 

As we all go about our days, may we never forget that God’s Word is more precious than fine gold, revealing the truth of  the one and only blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
