Some people wonder why we must give up the worship of other gods when we choose to follow the Creator God. They may say things like, “All roads lead to heaven. It doesn’t matter which god you worship, as long as you follow your religion faithfully.”

The Bible stresses, however, that there is only one God—the Creator God—and we are to worship him alone: “The LORD is God and there is no other” (Deuteronomy 4:35).

The Bible also makes it clear that the only way to reconciliation with God is through his son Jesus. There is no other way; we cannot be saved by believing in anyone else, by doing good deeds, or by following any rule or practice. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to [God] the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
