Did Mother Teresa Believe in Many Gods?

"We never try to convert those who receive [aid from Missionaries of Charity] to Christianity," said Mother Teresa. She believed salvation is available through any religion.

Mother Teresa demonstrated a false gospel in expressing a belief that there are many ways to God. She said: "All is God—Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, etc., all have access to the same God."

In her book, Life in the Spirit: Reflections, Meditations, and Prayers, "Mother" Teresa says on pp. 81-82:

"We never try to convert those who receive [aid from Missionaries of Charity] to Christianity but in our work we bear witness to the love of God's presence and if Catholics, Protestants, Buddhists, or agnostics become for this better men—simply better—we will be satisfied. It matters to the individual what church he belongs to. If that individual thinks and believes that this is the only way to God for her or him, this is the way God comes into their life—his life. If he does not know any other way and if he has no doubt so that he does not need to search then this is his way to salvation."

But Jesus Christ clearly stated, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John. 14:6). She was a self-sacrificing woman, but she was not an Evangelical Christian.
