Religions that believe in the One True God; do they all accept Christ?
First of all we must look at those who have different gods. These are Nontheistic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Without delving into their traditions of thought we will only look at the belief we as Christians and Jews adhere to.
If we believe that there is an entity we call God who created everything in the Universe and most especially human beings, then all that proceeds from Genesis through the Book of Revelation is a look at Salvation History which culminates with our own resurrection. This being said, Jesus Christ is the very essence of human life; created by God’s Love, redeemed by God’s Love, and welcomed into His heavenly paradise at the end of human life.
Why is it so important to ascertain this relies on what we believe from the bible? Through every prophet, and their stories in the bible, teach us that all are direct sequences to God’s only Son. Unfortunately, as much as we try to welcome non-believers such as Muslims into the realm of God’s creation, they do not accept Christ as God. That is why they use the Quran. There are different acceptances of our bible by Muhammad’s teaching, but too many discrepancies that Allah is God.
Accepting the bible which is a library of many literary works of absolute truth, we see how the sequence of each Old Testament book is a step by step journey leading to the birth, ministry, and suffering of God’s Messiah for our redemption. This is why the essential truth of God, in the Trinity of Love for mankind, must continue to teach all who have stopped in their belief of following the centuries old understanding of the manuscripts about the One True God.
Where has the falsified pronouncement of “any god is our personal belief” come from? Going back to Muhammad’s beliefs we see he had a revelation from the Angel Gabriel in 610 AD. If this is what Muslims adhere to then the revelation of God to the Jews and following throughout our beliefs seems to put a human view alone to their belief, and not who God is and the truth of his Son Jesus Christ to Chritians.
It all comes back to our belief, which stands solidly, that God sent his only Son through the Incarnation, to bring his wayward children back, through love and forgiveness. We are taught to forgive our enemies as God forgives all who don’t accept Christ. But, will he allow their obtrusiveness to keep them from the eternal glory each creature is offered?
