12 Myths Every Catholic Should Be Able To Answer

#2. ďChristianity is no better than any other faith. All religions lead to God.Ē

If you havenít heard this one a dozen times, you donít get out much. Sadly enough, the person making this claim is often himself a Christian (at least, in name).

The problems with this view are pretty straightforward. Christianity makes a series of claims about God and man: That Jesus of Nazareth was God Himself, and that he died and was resurrected ó all so that we might be free from our sins. Every other religion in the world denies each of these points. So, if Christianity is correct, then it speaks a vital truth to the world ó a truth that all other religions reject.

This alone makes Christianity unique.

But it doesnít end there. Recall Jesusí statement in Johnís Gospel:

ďI am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.Ē In Christianity, we have Godís full revelation to humanity. Itís true that all religions contain some measure of truth ó the amount varying with the religion. Nevertheless, if we earnestly want to follow and worship God, shouldnít we do it in the way He prescribed?

If Jesus is indeed God, then only Christianity contains the fullness of this truth.
