FoxNews online headline: "American Missionary wrote 'God, I don't want to die' before being killed by remote tribe" (11/22/2018)

First sentence of the article:

"John Allen Chau, the American missionary who was killed by an isolated tribe on a remote Indian island, reportedly wrote in his journal hours before his death, 'God, I don't want to die.'"

On John Allen Chau's Instagram, he describes himself:

"John Chau
Following the Way.
Wilderness EMT.
PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
Outbound Collective Explorer.
Perky Jerky Ambassador.
Snakebite Survivor."

What is "Following the Way"?

Statement from this web page:

"Years ago, through prayer, study and observing the major faith traditions, I caught onto a pattern that I didn't know existed. I came to realize that the Shema of Judaism, the Great Commandment of Christianity, the Five Pillars of Islam, the Eightfold Path of Buddhism, and The Way of Taoism were common revelations of the same four essential truths. If this was true, I thought, then God must have reached out to us with this same message in every time, place, and culture to reveal to us the meaning of life's journey. What I have found since that time has astounded me."

Where do we find the "Confession of Faith" of this "Following the Way"? In the link above, you'll find a letter, a statement describing the beliefs, the link is:

John Allen Chau is NOT a new version of James Elliot, an evangelical Christian missionary killed in Ecuador 1956 by Huaorani people. It is sad that the young man lost his life, and I'll not judge his spiritual state, but there is nothing of the true gospel in this "Following the Way", in the online links. Missing are the idea of "sin", "cross", "blood", "faith in Christ as the only way". This group is a socialist, leftist perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ as Paul describes in 1 Cor. 15:1-7

Thank you for sharing. Two of your links have been most helpful. Someone who has been in contact with me is, I believe very involved in 'Following the Way.' Reading the articles in certain places was just like reading her messages which she had sent to me. Thank you, again.
