Paths to God

This isn't the Roman Catholicism shown me in the 1960's growing in south Oak Park, Illinois. Not sure what it means for Liberal Religion when the Grand Inquisitor talked like this,
How many ways are there to God?

As many as there are people. For even within the same faith each man's way is an entirely personal one. We have Christ's word: I am the way. In that respect, there is ultimately one way, and everyone who is on the way to God is therefore in some sense also on the way of Jesus Christ. But this does not mean that all ways are identical in terms of consciousness and will, but, on the contrary, the one way is so big that it becomes a personal way for each man.
p32, Salt of the Earth
