The Illogical Belief that All Religions Can Save Us if We're "Good Enough"

This might be the most popular belief about God and the afterlife, and it's also the most illogical.

Have you ever had someone tell you that they believe people of all religions will go to heaven if they’re
good enough”?

I think this might be the most popular false belief in the world even though it's incredibly illogical.

Since all religions have contradictory views of sin and good works, which religion sets the standards for heaven?

✔ Since all religions have completely contradictory views of God, which god decides if you've met the requirements for being good enough?

Since all religions base salvation on irreconcilable differences, how can more than one be correct?

Only one religion can be the true one. And there is only one religion that deals adequately with the issue of sin—Christianity.

Scripture tells us “there is no one righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10). We'll never be good enough. Our only hope is grace which we receive through faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9). 

Yes, there is only one God and He alone is able to save (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). 

If someone tells you all religions can save good people, why not politely ask them some of the questions above. 

Let's respond to this popular belief with the only answer that makes sense.

This might be the most popular belief about God and the afterlife, and it's also the most illogical.

United Church of God (Armstrongism)

Note: The United Church of God
and Grace Communion International were formed in 2009 when the Worldwide Church of God split. Herbert Armstrong’s Worldwide Church of God was a cult that formerly published The Plain Truth magazine, which was neither plain nor truth. It appears that the United Church of God carried on Armstrong's cultist beliefs while Grace Communion Intl. appears to have adopted accurate Christian doctrine (source).
