Q11. Answer


Of all the faiths, only Christianity asserts the deity of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and that He came to die for our salvation.

There is no other Saviour. “Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

Muhammad did not die for our sins, nor did Buddha, nor did Krishna. Judaism rejects the deity of Jesus as God’s Son, their Messiah and our Saviour. Islam denies the deity of Jesus Christ, and the Trinity of God of Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The Koran declares Allah to be unitarian (Sura 4:48), and never the father of a son (Sura 4:171). Allah is presented by the Koran as unknowable, and as giving absolutely no assurance of salvation, except through death as a martyr in jihad, when only then is there the assurance of paradise. This is in deliberate contrast to God the Father, who in His love has made Himself known through His Son, Jesus Christ, and desires intimate relationship with all of mankind.

So, without having to go further, it’s already clear we are not all worshipping the same God. And Jesus Christ had these things to say:

“I am the way, the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

“I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter… by the door, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.” (John 10:1)

“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved.. (John 10:9).

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know You [the Father], the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” (John 17:3)

Jesus came on a mission from the Father. He knew who He was and why He came; and His coming was prophesied and promised in Scripture. He fulfilled His mission. He returned to the Father and He sent the Holy Spirit. And that is why, today, wherever you may be on the earth, you can be saved through faith in Jesus Christ, born again by the Holy Spirit, a new creation, your sins forgiven; and by God’s grace you’re given a fresh start, a new life having meaning and purpose.
