Isn't there more than one way to go to heaven?

Occasionally you may have come upon a highway sign that points down a certain road and promises that it will take you to a desired destination, so you take that road only to find it to be a dead-end. That is because it is not based on truth. It is important to realize the we did not invent the idea of Jesus being the only way to heaven. In John 14:6 Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." This is not my claim, this is His claim. We are just telling folks what His claim is and the claim of the writers of the New Testament. He took it a step farther when he stated in John 8:24 "if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins." The Apostle Peter reinforced this when he said "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12) Paul agreed also in the statement "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (I Timothy 2:5) It is the united testimony of the New Testament that there is no other way to go to heaven other than through Jesus Christ. If mankind could have 'gone down another road' to heaven, Jesus would not have had to die. His death and resurrection verifies that there is NO OTHER WAY.
