....They 'awaited' the coming Messiah and were faithful.
---Rita_H on 9/17/14

Ms Rita. You are aligned with and confirmed by prophets.

Eze 37:13 ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
Eze 37:11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
Eze 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: I will place them, multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

Peter I don't think that the labels Christian and Jew really matter here. They are "God's" children and are with Him now. Those who believe that no-one could possibly have been 'saved' before Christ entered the world in human form really do have a big problem.

Yes, Moses, Abraham, Noah and many others knew God the Father and will be with Him for eternity.

The suggestion by some people, that anyone born prior to the birth of Christ cannot possibly be saved is cruel and totally incorrect. They 'awaited' the coming Messiah and were faithful.

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one can get through to the Father but by Jesus only.
Jesus saves and no one else can Amen
God is good, all the time.
---Jasper on 9/18/14


Peter,
the Jewish believers from the Old Testament were not called Christians, because only the followers of Christ are call Christians. The Old Testament Jewish believers were those who looked forward to the coming of Christ.

Lawrence, the Father is the Father, the Son is the Son. The Father is not the Son. When the Son prays, He prays to the Father. He was not praying to Himself. He was ordained by the Father to die for the sins of many. The Father did not go to the Cross, the Son did. He was obedient to the Father unto death. When you mentioned those religions who are lost, you forgot to mention the "Oneness Pentecostals"
---Luke on 9/18/14




You have to remember, of course, that the Jews before Christ were saved..... even though they were Jews.

Remember Christ talk about Lazarus (the beggar) being 'with Abraham' (assume to mean in heaven), and Jesus also met Moses, and I assume that Enoch and Elijah were both saved.

All were saved for believing in the Messiah who was to come

Does that make them Christians, or Jews?
---Peter on 9/17/14


Yes Sammuel, Only through Jesus Christ.
Believe, Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v 38, Matt. 24 v 13.

Glory to God The Father which who Is Jesus Christ.
---Lawrence on 9/8/14


There is salvation only in and through JESUS.

But we are to be wary of many false prophets and Christ's.


Mat 24:24

For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
---Samuelbb7 on 9/7/14


Lawrence:

You said: World religions, trinity Rev. 17 vs 4 5. 6, jwhitness those that worship the gods buddha, hindu, allah, hare krishna, moony other etc.. manmade religions. No salvation to them.

I notice that you provide a scriptural reference ONLY to condemn trinity (and the reference is dubious), but not for any others.

Why are you so OBSESSED with trinity-bashing, even to the point of resurrecting a topic that has been dead for three years just to do so?
---StrongAxe on 9/7/14


As noted ONLY through Jesus is salvation given. Not through membership in ANY denomination or religion .
---Candice on 9/6/14




Salvation is only through the Lord Jesus Christ.

True seekers of God must however be wary & separate themselves from religions or ministries that use the name of Jesus somehow but,

(1) have hidden rituals, programs, initiations.
(2) has strange bibles with uncommon interpretations.
(3) doesn't have godly healing, prophecy, deliverance & charity work.
(4) has animal /idol worshipping.
(5) belittle Jesus in anyway.
(6) make money from all literatures & worship materials.
(7) praises human leaders instead of God.
---Adetunji on 9/6/14


No! There is NO salvation in any religion - not even Christianity. There is salvation only in Jesus Christ.

Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

It is one thing to know the holy commandmentss and to know God and christ and reject him, and quite another thing to be brought up in another religion and never hear of Christ and his laws. That is why SOME people of other religions, who have never heard of God or his laws will be saved by the blood of jesus.
---francis on 5/27/11


Rom 3:19-24 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus
---micha9344 on 5/14/11


"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'" (John 14:6) This is what Jesus says. And Jesus suffered like He did so we can be saved, and He payed His own blood for us. So, I would say it is not too brilliant to be looking for other possibilities, after Jesus came to us and went through all that for us. Is there anything we can say or do to add to what Jesus has said and done?

The way is Jesus who is a Person of God. So, the way is personal, not a religion of practices and beliefs and self-produced activities and discipline. Jesus started it all, and we depend on God for all He is able to do with us (2 Corinthians 3:5, Philippians 2:13).

the majority of the major religious beliefs do not include the idea of salvation. There is reincarnation through animals, reaching a state of perfection through reincarnation and becoming certain animals who are worshiped after death. Though these do speak of eternality, their is nothing to be saved
from. The exceptions I know of are Christianity, Judaism and Islam. The question is who is right and how are you saved? Jesus taught salvation is by faith seen through love. Mohammed taught your works, just as the Jews do, will bring salvation. Considering salvation implies you are helpless and in need of another to deliver you, the answer is quite clear.

Romans 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another,
Hmmmmm.
---Trav on 5/13/11
exactly. There are MANY none christians who do not know about God and his laws who:
5. Honor their father & mother.
6. Do not murder.
7. Do not commit adultery.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not lie.
10. Do not covet.

And when they do, seek forgiveness of the offended party. These will be excused and not accused in the day of judgment.
---francis on 5/13/11


There is no other name under heaven by which we are saved.
Salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone.

The Buddha said,

"The kind of seed sown
will produce that kind of fruit.
Those who do good will reap good results.
Those who do evil will reap evil results.
If you carefully plant a good seed,
You will joyfully gather good fruit."
Dhammapada

Matthew 12:33 "Either make the tree good, and his fruit good, or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit."
Luke 10:36-37 "Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."

Joh 3:18 "He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

From the roman cath church all the way down through, even those that worship this gods of islam,

They sure are. ---James_L on 5/11/11
Actually there are many who do not know God and have never heard of God who will be saved.

Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Romans 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and [their] thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another,)

Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

For all who say other religions will be saved by Christ and that Christianity is a denomination I simply say, hunh?

Christians are followers of Christ bottom line, no denomination or religion to it, simply followers of Christ.

Their is NO OTHER NAME that man can receive forgiveness of sin through.

Therefore no sin will enter into Heaven so the only cure for sin is Christ and the only way to know Christ is to be a follower of Christ better known as a Christian.

As for mentally impaired people the Bible says for those who KNOW to do wrong to them it is sin.

Humanity has Gods laws shed abroad in their hearts through a conscience which the Spirit of truth activates thus allowing them to know good and bad.

What happens to those who have NEVER heard of Christ or God, do you think think that they are all hell bound?
---francis on 5/11/11


They sure are. Romans 1 says they are without excuse. If they respond to the light given them, God will come to them.


Acts 8
26 an angel said to Philip "rise and go south"

27 Philip rose and went

29 the Spirit said "join his chariot"

30 Philip asked "do you konw what you're reading?"

31 "How can I, unless someone explains it?"

35 Philip opened his mouth and told him the good news.

Ephesians 4:5 One LORD,One Faith,One Baptism,

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is One GOD and One Mediator between GOD and men,the Man Christ Jesus.

2 John 1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him,

Romans 16:17 Now I urge you, note those who cause divions and offenses, contray to the doctrine which you have learned,and avoid them.

"Wow... Apparently one doesn't have to believe in Christ to be saved by Christ.
This seems to go against many scripture references as to how one must be saved."
---micha9344 on 5/11/11

Wow, apparently you are either heartless or too quick to speak without tought...
What do you say of those born with lessened capacities which will never 'believe'. Alzheimer
ridden individual who no longer even know who they are or their family, who knew and believed.
Would you say their love waxed cold?
How about the Samaritan or the Centurion who recognized the authority and power of Christ, unlike even those of his household, yet perhaps knew not a thing of God's promises?

Micah 6:8 "He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good, and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

and again,

"I will have mercy, and not sacrifice"

What is "to walk humbly with thy God"?
More than once Jesus stated Humility.

Of what Religion was that one called, "The Good Samaritan"? Christian?
