Is Jesus the ONLY way to God?


So I am reading a book on logic, by Norman Geisler. In it he states that John 3:16 teaches that Jesus is A way to God, but the verse does not limit Jesus to being the ONLY way. I agree with Mr. Geisler. Are there any verses that teach that trusting in Jesus is the ONLY way to God?

*This is assuming, of course, that all-Scripture is God-breathed, inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient for life and godliness. Which I fully affirm that Scripture is.

Alright, here are the verses that clarify that Jesus is the ONLY way, door to fellowship with God: John 3:16-18, John 3:36, John 14:6, John 12:44-50, Luke 8:12, Acts 4:12, 1 John 5:12.
The Bible clearly makes the claim that faith in Jesus, God's son, is the ONLY way to this fellowship, and that all who enter through HIM will not be disappointed.

Sadly, in the USA, most people are too busy to seriously consider a) their eternal destination, b) what will really bring freedom and help them in life. People may feel a tug, but have spiritual ADD & immediately lose interest.

  2. I will give you one verse now. It is John 3:16-18. This is why the context of the passage is so important. John 3:16 alone does not teach that Jesus is the ONLY door to salvation. But if you look at 16-18, you see that the verses clearly teach that Jesus IS the ONLY door to salvation.
