God is the only way to Heaven. Resolved: God is the only way to Heaven and only those who accept Him will go to heaven. God said that He is the way the truth and life and that no one comes to the father accept through Him. Heaven is real and so is hell which one we go to is another story. I belive in God and that why I stand resolved on that Christianity is the best religion and that God is the only way to Heaven

hello,

you say that god is the only way to heaven that can not be agreed to because in a lot of religions people believe do believe in god but they don't believe thats the only way to heaven.. me for example i am a true Muslim and i do believe in god but my god is different then your god.there are many religions in this world and to their belief their god is different. the way to heaven is not only god.i also believe in god but i will NOT say that it so the BEST religion because to some people that can be offending.and as a suggestion please keep your comments to yourself because it can be offending to some especially about religion." If Jesus is the only way to heaven, all those suckers born before his .... God is good. God is merciful, God asks us not to judge, but love. .." this is a quote from obama.anyone can live and say that "i believe in god ,i will go to heaven.there are many other things you have to believe and do to go to heaven. and we are not to decide who will got to heave or hell that is gods and ONLY gods decision.

Hello,
Ok so, if i say that Christianity is the best religion because i said so, then what do have to live for. God is the one that said " I am the way the truth the life no one comes to the father except through me". Now i will also say that He died upon a cross so that we can spend eternity in heaven with Him. My oppenent says it is affending to others. so if God isn't the only way to Heaven than it would be impossibel. Good works being kind i'v heard them all. We are all sinners it is impossible to go to Heaven without having to pay the price. but God took that price for us by dying on the cross and rising again. he took our sins so we don't have to pay the price. If we believe in multiple "gods" what do we have to show for them. The God says don't have false idols agaist me. other gods are false idols

ok lets just say that there are multiple ways to Heaven. What are your ways to Heaven and what are your proofs. I have the biggest proof. the Bible. But it also takes faith to believe in something that is not there. We can't see air but we know that it is there. we can't see oxygen but we know that its there. So just because we can't see a true God doesn't mean He is not there.

I'm not picking on you, I'm pointing out that faith and fact are completely different things. It's cool that you have faith that God exists. I admire your conviction. However, if you meander into the realm of what is provable faith cannot hold up. It defies the very definition of faith.

Saying it cannot be proven that God doesn't exist is flawed logic. By that standard, the tooth faerie could be real.

"I live by that verse do not mock my religion. God IS the only way to Heaven. He is the creator and unless you give up your life to Him, in the end He will not know you. You do not have my sympathy"

I like the fact that in one statement, you demand people not mock your religion and then claim yours is the only one that's valid and everyone else goes to hell.

In terms of a debate, you BELIEVE God is the only way to heaven. You can't prove it. When you talk in the realm of facts you are running into the problem of a guy you can't prove exists is the only way to a place you can't prove exists.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

I live by that verse do not mock my religion. God IS the only way to Heaven. He is the creator and unless you give up your life to Him, in the end He will not know you. You do not have my sympathy

"I also think that it would take a real creative imagination to conceive the bible so the only explanation is that bible is the true word of God and thats that"

I think that it would take a real creative imagination to conceive the Harry Potter books so the only explanation is that Hogwarts is real and that's that.

Christianity is faulty for many reasons. most predominately, its youth on a global scale. Christ-ianity...hmmm... so if all non-Christians go to hell then every human before the birth of christ got a pretty bad wrap. Also, the bible is a wonderful book of short stories but proves nothing. To those who have faith- more power to you. While I feel that that angels are about as logical as little fairies like tinkerbell the evidence is that religious people (weather or not they're right) live longer, happier lives and are more content in general. this is always a fun topic and I hope to see more of it.
