There is really no debating with someone who thinks their way is the only way, as you apparently do.
You've got me wrong. I know I make lots of mistakes. However, Christ claimed that "no man" comes to Father in Heaven "but by" Him. When someone makes an absolute claim, it's wrong, and false-hearted, to pretend the claim was not made. We can disagree, but--given the consequences--we shouldn't be too comfortable in that disagreement.
Jesus, before His death and resurrection:
John 14: Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
And whither I go, ye know the way.
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; how know we the way?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.
