ONE WAY: JESUS
JOHN 14: 6
JESUS CHRIST left us a legacy of love and truth. In love He spoke

people into not getting to the Father what lie would you perpetuate?
The deceiver has created numerous counterfeits and in this way he
leads many on dead end paths.
If we believe what Jesus said was true we cannot remain mute. If
