Many people in the Gospel asked that very same question directly to Jesus and let’s see what the reply was :

“And behold, one came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?” “And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is goodIf you would enter lifekeep the commandments.”

Matthew 19:16-17

Here according to Jesus, to enter Heavenwe follow the commandments.

A question to the Christians is: why would Jesus mislead this man if the ‘only way to heaven was through the blood of Jesus’Was Jesus misleading this man by teaching that Works will open the Gates of Heaven?

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 5:10

Here Jesus says that Martyrs will go to Heaven, those who die and suffer for a good cause will go to Heaven. Is Jesus again being misleading since all Christians claim that the one and only way to Heaven is through the blood of Jesus as the church teaches.

Here again a Lawyer asked the Important Question, How to enter Heaven; And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

Jesus said “What is written in the law? How do you read?”

And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”

And he said to him, “You have answered right; do this, and you will live.” Luke 10:25-28

The lawyer asked the teacher Jesus how to have eternal life and Jesus replied “Read“… “The Law“….. “Obey the Law” believe in God and love your neighbor.

Why in front of all these people would Jesus not tell them the so-called only way that the Christians of today are saying ‘no way to heaven except through the blood of Jesus’, why would Jesus contradict today’s Christians?

Are Christians freed from the Law as the modern Christians teach?

“Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:19

Why would Jesus Teach this if he came so that his blood can relax the Law, why is it when he was on earth, he Taught Not to Relax the Law? And Those who follow the Laws will be the Highest in Heaven.

Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21

Salvation according to some Christians comes from taking Jesus as your god and accepting the claimed blood sacrifice, while on the Other Hand, Jesus seems to be saying the OppositeWhy is that? Aren’t Christians supposed to follow the Teachings of Jesus, As far as Salvation is concernedMuslims are following the Teachings of Jesus, why haven’t the Christians started yet ?

“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother.” (Mark 3:35If Jesus is god, why would he claim that who ever follows the Commandments would be the brother or mother of god ? Does god have a mother of brother?

Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” Matthew 19:21

Giving to directly to the Poor, one of the 5 Pillars of IslamJesus is Teaching Piety to Enter Heaven.

“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24

This Verse was very revealing to me, Jesus is repeatedly saying, a rich man will not enter Heaven.

Some Christians of today claim that Jesus died for all sinsyet Jesus repeatedly taught that greed will prevent you from entering HeavenWhat about those Christians who are rich? Aren’t they saved according to the 10% collecting church?

Now according to the church and Christians of modern day, ‘who ever believes in the blood of Jesus and accepts Jesus as god, then that is the only way that person is saved, not through works.

Now let’s see if Jesus again contradicts the church;

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes Him who sent mehas eternal life; he does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.”

John 5:24

It is Clear that according to Jesus the way to Heaven is to believe in God (who Sent Jesus see John 17:3 ) and to hear (follow) the words of Jesus.

[ And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent ]

 John 17:3  ESV

Does Jesus want us to believe in his blood Or to believe that he is from God?

“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35

Therefore Jesus is Telling them that if they believe in him (While he was Alive) that they will receive paradise.

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father.” John 14:12

Truly, Honestly, I give you my Word Jesus Says: the Human who does Works as I do (Jesus followed the Laws of Moses) then that human will follow me to the Father (God).

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

What does a light do? it guides, directs, it shows you the Right Path, A light does not symbolize one to be sacrificed, but instead, one to Guide.

All Muslims believe in Jesus :

” and There is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus  before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness  “

[ The Qur’an 4:159 ]

and There is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness

People of the Scripture or People of the Book is a term refers to Jews and Christiansin the Quran .

Therefore I am Puzzled as to why Jesus would name off all these specific Teachings and Keys to enter Heaven except the one that the Christians teach (his blood).

According to JesusMuslims are blessed and will be in Heaven because they believe God sent Jesus and they follow works, I pray that Christians will at least follow the words of Jesus and may “his teachings” lead them to Truth.

[ But those firm in knowledge among them and the believers believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you. And the establishers of prayer [especially] and the givers of zakah and the believers in Allahand the Last Day – those We will give a great reward ]

[ The Quran 4:162 ]

read the Context of the Verses from here

But those firm in knowledge among them and the believers believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you

 

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and theprophets after him. And we revealed to AbrahamIshmaelIsaacJacobthe DescendantsJesusJobJonahAaronand Solomon, and to David We gave the book[of Psalms]

[ The Quran 4:163 ]

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. And we revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, A

This is not to say that we can work our way into Heaven which is a common misunderstanding of Christians towards Islam.

This is to clarify that we can not Faith our way directly into Heaven which is a common misunderstanding of Christians towards Christianity.

It is said well by Jesus’s younger brother and disciple (James) who said;

“Faith without works is Dead” {Jas 2:26}

And then the Truth is confirmed in the Holy Qur’an:

“..But the prayer of those without Faith is nothing but (futile wandering) in (mazes of) error! “

[ The  Qur’an 40:50 ]

“For Him (alone) is prayer in Truth: any others that they call upon besides Him hear them no more than if they were to stretch forth their hands for water to reach their mouths but it reaches them not: for the prayer of those without Faith is in vain.”

[ The  Qur’an 13:14 ]
