“Likewise, when a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, comes from a far country for the sake of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm, when he comes and prays toward this house, hear from heaven your dwelling place and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to you, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house that I have built is called by your name." ~ 2 Chronicles 6:32-33
From the American ideal of religious diversity comes the false conclusion that all roads eventually lead to heaven. It's one thing to be acceptant of one another in the neighborhood, but to shift our creeds to embrace a "whatever works for you" approach to God, takes us down a very slippery slope. From the earliest of time the Judeo/Christian faith clearly espoused one God and only one way to seek Him.
How refreshing to read the prayer above in a day when so many are seeking asylum from abusive situations. Will God accept anyone who comes to Him? The answer is a resounding YES! Solomon prayed for anyone to be received who sought the God of Israel by His name and worshiped Him as did Israel. It wasn't a request that the foreigner be accepted by any other approach or any other name by which they chose. The words were an open door, but specific... there's only one way to seek God.
When the God of Israel sent His only begotten Son into the world, nothing changed in the open invitation to all peoples. Anyone can seek and find their way to God, but Jesus made it clear once again in John 14:6 ... "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." And the apostle Peter understood this without confusion as he stood before the Jewish leaders of his day and said ... "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12) There may be many religions, but only one way to seek God.
