"No way, there's gotta be multiple options on that. We be about options, Kurt!" Well Buckeroo, not on this entrance. Think again. There's only One really beneficial Option.

Basic stuff:  It really shouldn't be taken as arrogant or rudely presumptuous when our loving Creator and Giver of life says He's the only way, but in these whacko I'll-do-what-I-wanna-do-cuz-I'm-the-only-ruler-of-my-life kinda times.. I ran into a guy on the street who actually felt this statement was. 
Q:  Would a fireman simply doin' his duty inside a burnin' house be for one second taken as "offensive" at all if he was merely pointing the endangered inhabitants to the only fire-exit? Naww he wouldn't.. not so much. And a fire-person doesn't even love (like God does us) the ones he's dealing with.  
Not at all arrogantly but factually, Jesus Christ boldly claimed, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!" A lot of people in my Land say, "Yeah, I can go with God but not with Jesus, but really there ain't another way to he Father God." Simply put, Christ said, “If you see Me, you have seen the Father.” Real basic stuff here. 

Other religions give people must-dos, traditions, dead rituals, and sometimes very strict rules to live by, but none of them offers the ultimate Solution to man’s wrong-doin's and that old nature inside (sin), or shows us the way to get home to God our loving Father. But Jesus not only shows us the way, He IS the way—yes, believe it or not.. the ONLY way.

Check it out. If your choice made a difference in this life only, it wouldn’t really matter all that much. But Jesus, as God the sinless Son, is THE representative of the One God, Creator of you and of everything, and as we have already seen, our decision to follow Jesus (or reject Him outright or by putting the decision off - yup, the Gospel is an accept or reject, believe with commitment or turn-down, either-or proposition) does have eternal results or consequences if ya will.
