On July 14, 2011, Yauheni Shchytou took a plane from Minsk, Belarus, Russia to Milan, Italy, then to JFK in New York and expected to reach Seattle, Washington. The trip went well and the plane reached New York on time. After a brief layover, he found the gate to board the next plane. Shchytou, though spoke very little English, got on the plane with the assistance of the airline staff. He took his seat and, since he was very tired, fell asleep right away
He later found out that the plane was heading to Frankfurt, Germany. It turned out that he took the wrong plane parking at the next gate and ended up in the wrong place. He came all the way from Russia and he almost made it to Seattle, but ended up 5,100 miles away instead. --Jim L. Wilson and Shanon Lee

Not all planes lead to the same destination. This gentleman was a sincere traveler, but he was sincerely wrong and ended up far from his desired destination. Not all religions lead to the same destinations either.
John 14:6 (ESV) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
