Don't All Religions Lead to the Same God?
According to God, there is only one solution to our sin problem. This is where Christianity is different. It involves coming to the realization that you, as an individual can't please God. But more importantly it involves understanding that God knows this, and loves you so much that He did for you what you could not do for yourself. He tells us in the Bible, that what we deserve for our imperfect lives is "death - meaning to be totally separated from Him for eternity." But instead of giving us what we deserve, He offers us what we could never deserve - the "gift of eternal life" through Jesus Christ. Once a person understands that their imperfection separates them from God and that nothing they can do will ever result in them becoming perfect on their own, then their need becomes very clear.
