What is it that separates Christianity from every other religion? What sets the truth apart from all the lies?
While most religions differ greatly in the minutia, there is a consistent theme that runs through all of them: human achievement. Whether you’re a Catholic, Muslim, Mormon, or Hindu, there is a code of conduct that is tied to eternal life. Even in religions where salvation isn’t guaranteed, the only possible way to achieve it is through diligent effort.
The truth of Scripture stands in sharp contrast. As we’ve already discussed, our inherited sin nature has left us helplessly sinful and totally depraved. And while man-made religions deny our inherent wretchedness, the testimony of God’s Word is clear—man, left to himself, is utterly without hope.
