Does it matter what you believe? Do Hindu’s and Buddhist’s believe in Jesus Christ the creator? Are they saved? Do works based religions like Roman Catholicism save anyone? How can a person work their way into heaven when the price for entry has already been paid? The Bible is very clear the only ones who are saved and will have eternal life are those who believe the gospel. The gospel is quite simple even though man makes it hard. The gospel is this. Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
Jesus was talking to the Jewish rulers.
Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning. I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
Why would those rulers die in their sins according to Jesus? They did not believe the gospel. They did not believe Jesus is the I AM, the creator and they did not believe anyone needed to die for their sins. Do you believe him? The most important decision in your life is about your creator. He simply wants to give you eternal life. His part is done. The decision is yours. You can pay for your own sins in hell or you can believe the gospel and have all your sins forgiven.
