Almost 60 percent of those in American evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life.

Dr. Robert Jeffress calls on Christians to recover the exclusive claims of the one they claim as Lord and Savior, not as a way to keep people out of heaven but as the only way to invite them in.

And my choice broke him. A message from beyond the grave would obliterate my world: "You chose wrong." These words would haunt me, telling me that everything I'd worked so hard for was wrong. I chose independence. "You chose wrong." I chose a career. "You chose wrong." And now, how do I keep running...when all roads are leading me home!
