Picture this. You and three friends are trapped in a burning building with ten doors but only one leads to safety. No one knows where to go until a firefighter who has assessed the situation bursts through one of the doors and yells, “Quickly, come through this door it is the only way to safety, all the others lead to other rooms on fire!” You then tell your friends to join you in going towards the fireman’s door, but some just shrug their shoulders and say, “I don’t believe that fireman, I’m going to go to a different one.” Another listens to his friend who “thinks” he knows the best door to go through and it’s a different one.” Not only would this be idiotic, but it would cost them their lives!
Similarly, Jesus is the only door through which one can be saved. In John 10:9 Jesus states, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved.” This is true whether you believe it or not.
