Salvation

according to

Jesus Christ

Salvation according to

Jesus Christ
Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfill. (Mathew 5:17)

Every religion has specific set of beliefs and instructions to do righteous
deeds for achieving salvation on the Day of Judgment. God Almighty has been revealing His commandments time to time through His Prophets to teach mankind the true path of God. In the study of different religions we find that Christianity is the only religion who claims that performing

righteous deeds is not

important because Jesus Christ (Christians believe he was the son of God)
was appointed from God to come into the world and take the sins of mankind on the cross, so believing in Jesus is enough to get to the

Kingdom of

Heaven.
As mentioned earlier God sends Messengers to warn people and guide them to true path and according to the Muslims Jesus Christ was also one of the mightiest messengers of God, so the question arises that what righteous deeds (commandments). Let us now

did Jesus

really teach in his time and did he really exempted the Christians from doing

analyze

the subject from Christian scripture The Holy

Bible, despite of what people believe. The above quotation from the Bible shows that he was really a pearl of the necklace of the Prophethood (as Muslims claim)

and that he also came to fulfill the law of the Prophets before him. Let’s see the continuation of the verse mentioned above:

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
(Mathew 5:18-19) Jesus Christ in this verse is warning people to fulfill the laws and the commandments to be called in the Kingdom of Heaven. He is insisting his people to follow the laws and declaring that anyone who breaks the least of commandments shall never enter Jannat (Heaven). If this the case, then where did the Christians get that they just have to believe in Jesus Christ as their Messiah and that he gave his life on the cross to take their sins. Its Paul. A book was written by an American Michael H. Hart naming THE HUNDRED, in which he finds 100 most influential men in history from Adam to the current times and sets Mohammad PBUH on number 1,

Paul

(self appointed disciple of

Jesus) on number 2 and at number 3 he puts his “savior” Jesus Christ. He
reasons that the honour of Christianity must be divided between Paul and Jesus and that the actual founder of Christianity is Paul not Jesus. Let us now see the difference in the teachings of Jesus and Paul in black and white.
JESUS

PAUL
Roman 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God

(Matthew 5 : 17-19) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least

in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Luke 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 1John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. Luke 10-25-26 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26He said unto him, What is written in the law? Mathew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. See also: Mathew 12:35, Luke 6:45, Mathew 23:35.

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree Romans 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. See also: Gal. 3:23-25, 5:2-4, 18, 2:19, 21, 16, 4:10, Eph. 2:15, Col. 2:14, 16, Heb. 7:19, 1 Cor. 8:8, Rom 3-19-23

I appeal to my Christian brethren to analyze yourselves that where you

lie in

this table ??
Check whether you are following Jesus Christ your Master or a self appointed disciple of Jesus, who was the persecutor of early Christians

??

Do you my brethren really think that a man who was an enemy of Jesus Christ, will be sincere with you and your generations

??

Do you not think that you must follow what the Master asked you to follow ??

???
Think sincerely, this is the matter of meeting with God on the Day of Judgment and to account for what we are doing in this World.

You can only have the SALVATION through the way Jesus Christ told, not through Paul’s way
Jesus said keep the laws and the commandments. Yet he did not gave the complete law as he said in the Gospel of John:

“I have yet many things to say unto you but ye cant bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth! For he shall not speak from himself but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak”
John 16:12-13
