Who you gonna believe?

From Oprah to Bill Maher, we are told that all roads lead to heaven or there is no heaven.  So, if you want to know where a person stands when it comes to Jesus, just ask them, "Who is Jesus to you?"  This is the same question that Jesus asked His disciples in Matthew 16:15. 

Buddhists believe that Jesus was a good teacher, though less important than Buddha.

Hindus believe that Jesus was just one of many incarnations or sons of God, that he did not die for people's sin.

Muslims believe that Jesus was the second greatest prophet because Muhammad is greater than Jesus.

In Jainism you are responsible for your destiny and that it is possible to reach a perfect state through your own actions, because of karma.

The Mormon Church teaches that God the Father is a resurrected human man who is a married being who has "spirit children" in Heaven; Jesus was also born in the pre-existence to God the Father and one of his wives; and that Jesus and the devil are brothers born to God and one of his wives.

Wiccans say Jesus went through individuation, meaning He embraced His "dark side"

Jehovahs Witness teach that before His earthly life, Jesus was a spirit creature, Michael the archangel, who was created by God and became the Messiah at His baptism.

And there are other religions that deny Jesus.
So who you gonna believe?  Do all roads lead to heaven?  Are we all worshipping the same God?
