You, the reader of what you are now reading, have probably heard the expression: "There are many paths to God".
Such an axiom is both true, and not true - and the seeming contradiction will hereafter be explained.
A better-worded saying would be: "There are many paths to Jesus Christ and His Scripture".
Such paths include many of the world's multi-denominational religions, although many of them fall short of reaching the Divine-person destination and His required dogma. Indeed, within the broadly-categorized religions which supposedly do lead to Christ and the totality of His ethical-Law canonical Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian Bible, much of what is contained within those religions is adiaphoric (i.e. take-it-or-leave-it) sectarian customs, plus optional ceremonial peripherals and both arbitrary and non-binding preferential ritualisms.
More specifically, the vaguely-defined general religion of choice is 'protestant Christianity,' because of the proper-length contents of what those therein consider "sacred Scripture" (of 66 canonical Old-and-New-Testament books) . . . whereas the religions of 'catholic, anglican, and episcopal christianity" (and even some 'protestant lutherans') have inferior status because of inclusion of [additional] apocryphal books placed within their old testaments - as does the cult of cross-less mormonism with their inclusion of the writings of Joseph Smith as part of their alleged "divinely-inspired" scripture along with mormonic cultically-heretical suppositions that both Jesus and Satan were created-being brothers.
[Along those lines, it is noteworthy to mention that Mormon Mitt Romney - current GOP presidential candidate for 2012 - has stated in the past that not only does he contradict his own anti-abortion mormon church precepts by him supporting and intending to maintain Roe-v-Wade abortion-accommodation choice, but that he would (hypocritically and questionably) disassociate his own church teaching from how he would rule if elected. Rick Santorum has stated - verifiable by YouTube record - the same intention of disassociating away from his catholic-church ideology if elected to Executive Office....and although understandably pluralistic in tolerance of those maintaining different cultic-religion superstitions, quasi-polygamous-like Newt Gingrich has (more or less) clearly indicated rhetorical congruity with the anti-abortion and anti-homosexuality tenants of his Callista-concordant Catholic faith].
The bible of Judaism is too short because of excluding the New Testament, and pseudo-sacred writings of Buddhist, Shinto, Hindu, Confucius superstitions (not "faiths") are mere moralisms without any Old and New Testament Bible.
The religion of islam has no Old or New Testament, but instead a random assortment of flowery prose consisting of plagiaristically-and-antisemitically-reworded snippits from both the Judeo-Christian Old and New Testaments stolen from [not of but rather against] protestant Christianity.
Most computers in the past and present are set up to accept only one specific alpha-numeric BIOS passcode. As stated previously, concerning (and not regarding) those who claim that "there are many paths to God," there is only ONE specific-and-exact alpha-numeric BIOS passcode to get into one's computer...and NO other combination of letters and numbers will work....ever. In that case, there are zillions of ways to do things wrong, but only ONE exact and precise way (no simply in the numbers and/or letters necessary, but the ordering of them typed) to do things right.
As Christ Himself stated:
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.
Now - depending upon how athletically and intellectually one wants to worship - one can take the Protestant road to God in Christ (which is obviously the best) in various denominational forms and expressions such as being Lutheran, Baptist, Assembly of God, Evangelical Free, Covenant, Presbyterian, Methodist, Seventh-Day Adventist, etc. - even (to some extent) Catholic, Anglican, Episcopalian, Jewish, perhaps JW (plus the necessary New-Testament additions or minus the non-necessary apocryphal/maryolatrous/purgatorical/etc. baggage). Or one can start with the Near or Far Eastern religions, as long as they continue (or intend to continue, depending on if they continue to physically live and are circumstantially able to proceed) into a KJV/RSV/NASV/etc. protestant Christianity required for full access to God in Christ....all of which will get them into the non-contradictory paradox (not merely anomaly) of the concept of the "three-Gods-in-One" Holy Trinity while simultaneously conceiving of such as THE One True Monotheistic God.
Dissimilar to mormonism, it is quite evident that 'THE Son of God' (with identified name of: 'Jesus Christ') was not a created being, but has always existed in eternity past.
According to [protestant]-Christian Scripture in particular, that Son of God is associated with two phenomena:
(1) the creation of the Universe and everything therein, and
(2) providing atonement against sins for everyone who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [and thus calls him: 'Lord'] and who believes and exclaims that His death by crucifixion some 2000 years ago over in the Middle East cancels the complete penalty of all their committed sins.
The other two Beings of 'The Triune Godhead' (e.g. 'The Holy Spirit' and 'The Father') - fuzzy concerning personage in the comprehensions of diligent serious thinkers - are associated with support of and advertisement for The [now-by-name-identified] Son of God, amongst other descriptive intentions and actions...identified throughout Hebrew-Jewish Old-Testament Scripture and the New Testament authored by Hebrew-Jewish Apostolic Scribes (Paul, Peter, John, etc.) also.
The Holy Trinity of the Godhead has been compared to ice, water, and steam (all consisting of water in the forms of solid, liquid, and gas). Also, it is somewhat similar to the egg - consisting of the differing yet inter-related parts of yolk, egg white, and shell.
Perhaps no other segment of genuine Scripture puts it better than the following (which passage, lamentably, most non-KJV-type modern [partially-corrupt-and-inaccurate] "translations" mis-word):
1John 5:6 This is He who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water only, but by the water and blood. And the Spirit is He who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth.
7 For there are three who bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in the earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and the three are to the one.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater. For this is the witness of God which He has testified about His Son.
10 He who believes on the Son of God has the witness in himself. He who does not believe God has made Him out to be a liar, because he does not believe the record that God gave of His Son.
11 And this is the record, that God has given to us everlasting life, and this life is in His Son.
12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 I have written these things to you who believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have everlasting life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Regarding The Father:
Mt 11:27 All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.
Mt 24:36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only."

Mt 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and wow, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
Mrk 13:32 "But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Luke 9:26 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed when He comes in His glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
Lu 10:22 All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him."
John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, full of grace and truth; we have seen and perceived His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.
Joh 1:18 No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made Him known.
Joh 3:35 the Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.
Joh 4:21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.

The inter-relation of 'The Father' and 'The Son' is indicated by such verses as:
Prov 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know!
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be on His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isa 9:7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
Mt 22:1 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question,
42 saying, "What do you think of the Christ? Whose Son is He?" They said to him, "The son of David."
43 He said to them, "How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls Him Lord, saying,
44 'The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I put your enemies under your feet'?
45 If David thus calls Him Lord, how is He his son?"
46 And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did any one dare to ask him any more questions.
John 1:1 In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with God, and The Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God;
3 all things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.
4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of humans.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 He came for testimony, to bear witness to The Light, that all might believe through him.
8 He was not The Light, but came to bear witness to The Light.
9 The True Light who enlightens every human was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, yet the world knew Him not.
11 He came to His own home, and His own people received Him not.
12 But to all who received Him, who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God;
13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of humans, but of God.
14 And The Word became flesh and lived among us, full of grace and truth; we have seen and perceived His glory, glory as of The Only Son from The Father.
Joh 8:58 Jesus said to them, "Truthfully, I say to you: before Abraham was, I AM."
Acts 2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses.
33 Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured out this which you see and hear.
34 For David did not ascend into the heavens; but he himself says, 'The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand,
35 till I make your enemies a stool for your feet.'
36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified."
Colossians 1:9 And so, from the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,
10 to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy,
12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
13 He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation;
16 for in Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible - whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities - all things were created through Him and for Him.
17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
18 He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything He might be pre-eminent.
19 For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to reside,
20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things - whether on earth or in heaven - making peace by the blood of His cross.
21 And you, who once were estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil works,
22 He has now reconciled in His body of flesh by His death, in order to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before Him,
23 provided that you continue in the faith, stable and continuous, not shifting from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of His body, that is, the church,
25 of which I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known,
26 the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to His saints.
27 To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is: Christ in you, the hope of glory.
28 Him we proclaim, warning every human and teaching every human in all wisdom, that we may present every human mature in Christ.
29 For this I labor, striving with all the energy which He mightily inspires within me.
Hebrews 1:1 In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets;
2 but in these last days He has spoken to us by the Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world.
3 He reflects the glory of God and bears the very likeness of His nature, upholding the universe by His word of power. When He had made purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become as much superior to angels as the name He has obtained is more excellent than theirs.
5 For to what angel did God ever say, "You are my Son, today I have generated you"? Or again, "I will be to Him a father, and He shall be to me a son"?
6 And again, when He brings the first-born into the world, He says, "Let all God's angels worship Him."
7 Of the angels He says, "Who makes his angels winds, and His servants flames of fire."
8 But of the Son He says, "Your throne, God, is forever, the righteous scepter is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your comrades."
10 And, "You, Lord, did found the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11 they will perish, but you remain; they will all grow old like a garment,
12 like a mantle you will roll them up, and they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will never end."
13 But to what angel has He ever said, "Sit at my right hand, till I make your enemies a stool for your feet"?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to serve, for the sake of those who are to obtain salvation?
