Tris, you're wrestling with questions that have occupied theologians for millenia.  You're not going to get an answer to that question on a blog.

Its true.  The only way to heaven is through Christ.  Period.  The bible is pretty clear on that.  So if you're a Christian its the starting point of the whole religion...but is it the ending point.

Throughout the bible there are alot of ways Christ is described:

The Way, The Truth, The Light
The Lamb, The Son of God, The Son of Man
The Word, The Messiah, a bunch more

All of those are in the bible too.  So is the bible telling us that while there is only 1 way to heaven...through Christ...that there are many ways to perceive and define Christ?  Possibly.  Then there's that whole Tower of Babel story which is one of the most powerful and important stories in the bible that has unfortuneately been largely relagated to children's books.  That has some very interesting things to say about different roads to the same place.

Welcome to Theology.  Its why religion is based on Faith, cuz reason will only take you so far.
