Common Christian thought is that the
only way to heaven is through Jesus, whether through intercession
in prayer or devotion in worship as part of the trinity. The notion
that Jesus Christ is the Savior and the way contradicts every known
divine scripture including the Old Testament, the New Testament
and the Final Testament (Quran). Any sincere student of the scripture
will find out that the ONE and ONLY Savior and Redeemer is the One
GOD, the Almighty, the God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammed.
We see in the New Testament that the idea of every one being responsible
for his deeds was expressed in Galatians 6:4-7: “Each
man should look to his conduct; if he has reason to boast of anything,
it will be because the achievement is his and not another’s.
A man will REAP ONLY what he SOWS.”
There are also other similar verses in the New Testament:
Each of us shall give an account of himself to God.
Each one will receive his own reward according to
his own labour. (1 Corinthians 3:8)
In the Old Testament, individual accountability is clear:
Also to you O Lord, belong mercy; for you render
to each one according to his work. (Psalms 62:12)
And will he not render to each man according to
his deeds? (Proverbs 24:12)
The righteousness of the
righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked
shall be upon himself. (Ezekiel 18:20)
The Final Testament, the Quran, confirms the basic principle in
the Old and New Testaments, that a man will reap only what he sows.
Every soul is responsible only for his/her own work
...no soul benefits except from its own work, and
none bears the burden of another.... (6:164)
If each man reaps what he sows, how can Jesus be the savior? How
could he have taken on the sins of mankind and negated them? Only
the One who accepts repentance and wipes out sins can do that. Indeed
throughout the Old Testament, God ALONE is referred to as the SAVIOR.
For example in 2 Samuel 22:1-3 and in Isaiah, God Himself speaks,
saying clearly that He ALONE is the SAVIOR:
For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel,
your SAVIOR....It is I, the Lord; there is NO SAVIOR BUT ME... (Isaiah
God repeats this categorical statement in Hosea:
I am the Lord, your God, since the land of Egypt; You know no God
besides me, and there is NO SAVIOR but me. (Hosea 13:4)
There is also a related concept, the idea of a “REDEEMER”.
This word has also been exclusively used for God in the Old Testament,
e.g. Isaiah 44:24 and 60:16.
You shall know that I,
the Lord am your SAVIOR, your REDEEMER, the mighty one of Jacob.
The created idea of Jesus being the Savior can only be witnessed
in the New Testament where the alteration has been highly suspected
because of its complete contradiction to the Old Testament that
came from the same God. God does not change His mind. God does not
call Himself the ONLY SAVIOR then decide to change that and call
Jesus the Savior. This term describing Jesus as the Savior was used
only twice in the New Testament. This is noted in Luke.2:11 and
in John. 4:42. Besides these two occurrences, the only other occurrence
in the Gospels clearly refers to God, not Jesus:
Then Mary said: “My being proclaims the greatness
of the Lord. My spirit finds joy in God, MY SAVIOR, For He has looked
upon his servant in her lowliness...” (Luke 1:46-48)
We cannot ignore the reminder in Isaiah 46:9 where God speaks of
Himself: “I am God, there is no other; I am God, there
is none like me.” (in other words La Elaha Ella Allah
– There is no god except GOD).
In the Final Testament, the Quran, God clearly calls Himself the
Redeemer and no savior besides Him. A few verses are listed below.
As for those who repent, reform, and proclaim, I
redeem them. I am the Redeemer, Most Merciful. (2:160)
