Christians, what is the way of salvation?
- 2 years agoFavorite Answer
With the greatest of respect, I think your question would have been a lot more accurate with 'WHO' is the way of salvation, because only Jesus proclaimed, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). The Triune God of the Bible, Yahweh-God as Christians understand Him,is the God who loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Conclusion- when we place our faith in Jesus, trusting His death as the payment for our sins, all of our sins are forgiven and washed away. We will then have our spiritual hunger satisfied. The lights will be turned on. We will have access to a fulfilling life. We will know our true best friend and good shepherd. We will know that we will have life after we die—a resurrected life in heaven for eternity with Jesus!

What did Jesus Christ say? Note this - John 17:3 - This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. - - - - This knowledge MUST be ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH - 1 Timothy 2:4 – whose (God’s) will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. - - - - WHY is that so important? Just consider this: With so many different religions all over the globe, all teaching so many different things, they can't possibly all be true! However, the Holy Scriptures provide us with the way to make sure we are getting an accurate knowledge of truth. Note where Jesus said the truth comes from - John 17:17 - Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth. - - - - So the truth comes from God's word. But as mentioned, there are so many different religions. The Bible tells us why. Because people twist the Scriptures - 2 Peter 3:16 . . . and these things the ignorant and unstable are twisting, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. - - - - This is because of God's enemy, Satan the devil. He does not want anyone to know the truth. Note that God's word tells us that he is working to blind the minds of people - 2 Corinthians 4:4 - among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through. - - - - And the result? People, that are blinded to the truth, are misleading other people - 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 – 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps disguising himself as an angel of light. 15 It is therefore nothing extraordinary if his ministers also keep disguising themselves as ministers of righteousness. But their end will be according to their works. - - - - But as you would expect from the God of truth, the Scriptures tell us how to make sure we get the accurate knowledge of truth that God wants us to have. This example must be followed - Acts 17:11 . . . carefully examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. - - - - If we examine the Scriptures carefully, we can make sure we are getting the truth. Because the truth cannot possibly be contradictory. Otherwise, it could not possibly be the truth. So, anything contradictory to God's word is NOT truth! - - - - But just as Jesus stated, God's word IS truth. So, if we examine it carefully, we can prove the truth to ourselves. There is no greater treasure to be found. Bible truth liberates us from superstition, confusion, and morbid fear. It gives us hope, purpose, and joy. Jesus said: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”— John 8:32. - - - - Yes, we can KNOW the truth. And this truth sets us free from all sorts of false religious teachings. - - - - Please note that the Scriptures even indicate that those embracing the truth in God's word would be completely united all over the globe - 1 Corinthians 1:10 - Now I urge you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you should all speak in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you, but that you may be completely united in the same mind and in the same line of thought. - - - - Jesus even gave us the identifying characteristic of his true followers - John 13:35 - By this all will know that you are my disciples — if you have love among yourselves. - - - - What kind of love is this? That would be able to identify those truly following Jesus Christ? This type of love is highlighted throughout God's word. Here are 3 Scriptures that describe this type of love - Proverbs 25:21 - If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; If he is thirsty, give him water to drink. - - - -
Luke 6:27 - “But I say to you who are listening: Continue to love your enemies, to do good to those hating you. - - - - Romans 12:20 - But “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; - - - - So, is there a group of people, completely united, all over the globe displaying this kind of love? YES! - - - - Note what Jesus said they would be doing - Matthew 24:14 - And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. - - - - "In all the inhabited earth"? They would certainly have to be completely united to accomplish such a work. But did you also notice that after this work is completed, Jesus said "then the end will come"? The good news of the Kingdom is being preached right now in 240 lands around the globe. It is available in over 900 languages online! - - - - Another Scripture that indicates that we must be getting close to the fulfillment of Jesus' words, "then the end will come", is found here - Psalm 92:7 - When the wicked sprout like weeds And all the wrongdoers flourish, It is that they may be annihilated forever. - - - - Over the last 1 to 2 years or so, wickedness has flourished like never before in mankind's history, all over the globe. It is obvious that the fulfillment of prophecies relating to the destruction of the wicked are getting close. Note some of these - Proverbs 2:21 & 22 - 21 For only the upright will reside in the earth, And the blameless will remain in it. 22 As for the wicked, they will be cut off from the earth, And the treacherous will be torn away from it. - - - - Psalm 37:10 & 11 - 10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. - - - - This relief is surely coming soon - 2 Thessalonians 1:7 & 8 - 7 But you who suffer tribulation will be given relief along with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his powerful angels 8 in a flaming fire, as he brings vengeance on those who do not know God and those who do not obey the good news about our Lord Jesus. - - - - Did you notice in that Scripture, where it indicates who will be destroyed? Those "who do not know God" and "those who do not obey the good news". - - - - It is not because they don't have an opportunity to know God. That is what the preaching of good news over the entire inhabited earth makes available - accurate knowledge of God. Along with instructions on how to obey the good news. So, those removed will be those that refuse to know God. And those that hear the good news, but refuse to obey it. - - - - Please note that the Scriptures call God the "Hearer of prayer" - Psalm 65:2 - O Hearer of prayer, to you people of all sorts will come. - - - - In view of the foregoing Scriptures, I encourage all to approach the Hearer of prayer, and ask him to put you in touch with those preaching the good news all over the globe. You can find their web site here (be sure to examine the Scriptures carefully, to make sure you are indeed getting the truth) -

Jesus is the way.

Even the pope said there is more than one way to salvation. If you believe only those who believe in Jesus gets to heaven, then that means Moses and Aaron are doomed. I don't think so....

Believe in Jesus is the answer. Acts 16:31 was the answer to your question. That easy.
Death leads immediate to heaven or hell. Every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

The way of salvation starts with John 14:6
