Is This Guy Saved?

A question. I believe in Jesus but not the Trinity, virgin birth, deity of Christ, or the inerrancy of Scripture. Am I saved?

Here’s a question that came in recently. I’ll post it in its entirety.

I was raised in the Baptist church, my father was a pastor at one time. I made a public confession of my faith when I was young and was baptised. I became a missionary and did that work for nearly 20 years.

I no longer believe in the Trinity, the virgin birth, or that Jesus was God. I no longer believe that salvation is by faith nor do I believe in the inerrancy of the Bible.

But I do firmly believe in God and what Jesus actually said (not what they say he said). I pray every day and read and study the scriptures. I love God and Jesus. I see miracles happening all the time because of my faith and prayer.

Am I saved or not?

Well, what do you think? Is this guy saved or not?

  1. This is a very interesting question. I believe it is for God to decide whether a person is saved or not. I have a question: Are Muslims saved? They believe in Jesus in a manner similar to what was just described unless I am wrong about their beliefs.

  2. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God. They do not believe that Jesus died for their sins. They believe that Jesus was a great prophet and that he was taken to heaven before he died, and that someone else died on the cross. They do not believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. They believe that their good works must outweigh their bad works in order for them to get to heaven. None of these beliefs are consistent with Scripture. I agree with you that if we follow the Bible as our source of truth, those who do not accept the Christ of Scripture, are in dangerous lands. We have some today who talk of Christian Buddhists, and many other strange things. The mixing of religions is not something that is supported by any of the major religions. Nor is it supported by Scripture. I think those Muslims who know anything about the Bible know that they are not saved if the Bible is the standard for salvation. But they do not look to the Bible for whether they are saved, but to the Koran.
