Is Jesus the only way to God? A definite yes! But there’s a difference between different ways to God and different ways God uses to get people to the way.
God is willing to travel any road to find people who haven’t yet found the way. He stubbornly hunts for the hearts of people and even plants his invitations in less than perfect religious soils.
Because he cares about the billions of Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists of the world, he slips clues about himself in their systems of worship. Yes, Jesus is the only non-stop flight to the Father; that much is clear. But the Spirit leaves invitations on other flights and in other airports to encourage travellers to eventually board the plane that will take them all the way to God.
He’s the end of all things and the beginning of all things. Everything that’s savingly true leads back to Jesus.
