Joh 14:6 I am the way, and the truth, and the life. This is said in reply to Thomas. Without him there would be no Way revealed; no divine and saving truth, no immortal life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Not only can no one enter the Father's house without him, but no man can come to the Father on earth so as to enjoy his favor. "There is no other name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved" (Ac 4:12).

It really can not be any clearer, Jesus is the only way to Father God, you must accept Christ Jesus as your Lord and Saviour to have life (spiritual life) and this is a Spiritual Truth.
Without Christ as our Lord and Saviour we are subject to Satan and death (spiritual death)

Not only did jesus say I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh to the father but by me. this lines up with John 10:9 where jesus says Im the door by me if any man enter he shell be saved and go in and out and find pasture.Also John 6:44,Mark 16:16,and Acts 2:38 So through his resurrection [JESUS] We live through baptism in the name of jesus christ we die to sin.Rom 6:6 Rom 14:7 Gal 2:20 And 2Cor 5:15 never forget Eph 5:2 therefor as 2Cor 2:14,15.

Verse 6, if Jesus did not mean that, he would not have said it plainly and directly as so. It would then be phrased as "no one comes unto the Father except through Jesus." As the written word was not about what Jesus, written word was not what is meant, and is 'adding to' the message what is not there. It is about Christ within "me" to all who affirm the message of John 14:6. It is self evident logic. You read the word(s) of doctrine, you desire to have relationship with Christ, and you go within. Thus, you who are reading this can also say, and it is equally true, that Christ is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes unto the Father except through Me. Nothing added or changed. Truth revealed.

How can it be possible that in the whole universe, composed of what we now know to be billions of galaxies, which are certainly inhabited by who knows how many trillion of creatures, there was only one being through which God's grace could come??? What about those poor fellas born in galaxies so far away from earth as to be impossible for them to even have heard the name of Jesus? How could they be saved? The God I love could never be so unfair toward any of His creatures! Paramhansa Yogananda's interpretation above is the one that makes the most sense to me, and makes me think of God with love, rather than with fear.

IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, YOU "HAVE" TO GO THROUGH CHRIST.

How can it be any plainer than the King James Version has said. You can not have any other views of this verse; because there is no other.
This is very simple to do. Believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God. There is no other son's of God, except Jesus. ANY OTHER VIEW IS A LIE, AND ALL OTHERS WILL MAKE YOU MISS HEAVEN AND THE PROMISE OF GOD.

Here's the Paramahansa Yogananda's interpretation of the quotes of Jesus where Jesus says, "I am the way, truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, but through me," John 14:6. Theologians have misinterpreted Christ's words in such passages as, 'I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh unto the Father but by me.' Jesus meant, never that He was the sole son of God, but that no man can attain to the unqualified Absolute, the transcendent Father beyond creation, until he has first manifested the 'Son' or activated Christ Consciousness within creation. Jesus, who had achieved entire oneness with that Christ Consciousness, identified himself with it in as much as his own ego had long since been dissolved." ( Autobiography of a Yogi , p. 198, footnote; emphasis in the original)

This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. This is what it all comes down to. This verse strikes right at the heart of all other religions and proves them to be false.

V. 6. A few thoughts on the logic of such a radical statement. Hundreds of prophetic predictions, over thousands of years have been satisfied by only one person. Also, it is obvious that all humanity (including Christians) has inadequacies. According to the most trusted book, this is because Adam and Eve disassociated themselves, and thus all their descendants, from God. Now, humanity needs a new connection by a human being who is conceived by God's Spirit, rather than a human father that is not asociated with God. God's way with the Virgin Mary is the only way I can think of that a human could possibly be the WAY, the TRUTH (reliable plan) and LIFE source for believing humanity. Therefore, no one but Jesus qualifies and no religion can attain to that life without Jesus.

Jesus is saying there are only to roads available to us; the road to destruction and the road to heaven. Following Jesus is the way to heaven. He speaks the truth as opposed the devil who is deceptive. Jesus is life and gives life, not just here on earth but life after. No man comes to the father but by men means if you cannot accept Jesus for who he is you cannot receive God. You MUST go through Jesus to get to God!
