Who Determines What God Requires of Us?

John 4.22 proclaims, you Samaritans worship what you do not know. We worship what we do know, because salvation is from the Jews.

One of the most offensive things a person can say today is that there is only one true religion, one true way to heaven, one true God. People become offended by this because they feel it is offensive to other people. However, these same people do not seem to think that believing and advocating for many ways to heaven and many gods to get there might be offensive to the One True God.
