Is Jesus Christ the Savior of the World?
Christians claim that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World. What I do not understand is that the Bible says you cannot be saved if you do not submit your life to Jesus. How about the Islams, Buddhists, the Bahai'i, and everyone else who do not worship Jesus? Are they also saved by Jesus' death and resurrection?
1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Everyone will resurrect according to this verse. For being saved from sin and accepted into the kingdom of God.
John 3:55 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
You need baptism to be accepted into the kingdom of God.
If you don't get accepted into the kingdom of God, it does not mean you go to Hell. There is a place for people that lived honorable lives that do not accept Christ.
Salvation is offered by God through Jesus Christ. It is a gift. In order to be saved you must receive the gift. Following Jesus is a natural expression of receiving salvation, not a requirement before salvation.
The Bible says that it is a requirement for eternal life. If you don't worship Jesus, you have no eternal life.
Eternal life and immortality are different things.

God love us that is why He gave his only begotten son.
Jesus never ask if we are worthy but He make us all worthy by dying on the cross thus we are justified.
Can you tell me where in the Bible it says worship of Jesus is a requirement for eternal life? My beliefs come from the Bible and that is what I base my belief on.
The ONLY requirements for eternal life are belief in Jesus and acceptance of the gift of salvation.
Romans 10:9 says,
"if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved"
God loves all people, however all people don't love Him. Those who accept Him are those who desire to be with Him. I have absolutely no way of knowing what others have in their heart. However, if they denounce Christ, they don't love God the Father.

Christians all over the World claim that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, is the savior of the World and not just Christians. He died for the sins of Christians, atheists, pagans, Muslims, Jews, Buddhist, etc... An important argument we must note is that the teachings of the New Testament say that to go...

What Qualifies You for Heaven?So many people believe they'll go to heaven when they die. Yet not many people are willing to do what it takes to get there. The Bible says in John 3: 16, that "...whosoever believes in Jesus, shall not perish but have eternal life." And in John 14: 6, Jesus...
