One Way or Many Paths?

One morning, on my way to work I drove by a local churchlike building.  I saw a welcoming sign above the entrance door of the building, there was an eye-catching phrase, saying, “One God Many Paths”.  They seemed to be the people who have their own respective religion whatever it might be, and yet they gather there to worship together.
 Uhm… What can we say about this group of people?  Are they better than the polytheistic people professing, “Many gods Many paths”?  In this land, the freedom of religion is guaranteed by constitution. No one can condemn and stop them by any means.
 But Our Lord Jesus said, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
Thomas a Kempis, author of famous writing “Imitation of Christ" well said; “I am the way, the truth, and the life. Without the way there is no going; without the truth there is no knowing; without the life there is no living. I am the way which you should pursue; the truth which you should believe; the life which you should hope for.” (iii., 56)
Then what should be the sign post for our belief? Without hesitation it will be “One God One Way, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.” Amen and Amen!
