How do you get to Heaven?
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” —John 14:6 ESV
“He is the way to the Father because only He has an intimate knowledge of God, unmarred by sin. He is the truth because He has the perfect power of making life one coherent experience irrespective of its ups and downs. He is the life because He was not subject to death but made it subject to Him. He died to demonstrate the power and continuity of His life. Because He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, He is the only means of reaching the Father. Jesus is the only authorized revelation of God in human form, and He is the only authorized representative of humanity to God.”—Merrill C. Tenney
“There is no heaven without Jesus.” —David H. McKinley
