Do you need to believe Jesus is God to be saved?

Report as

You must except JESUS as your Lord and Savior. The bible is quiet clear, " the Only way to the FATHER (GOD in heaven) is through the SON. When I say "you must" don't misunderstand. you don't have to believe anything you don't want yo believe. but if the question is How to get to heaven, there's your answer. JOHN 3:16/17

Jesus isn't God nor the son of God. You need to believe Jesus is a prophet and you need to believe in everything else God told you to believe in, in order to go to heaven.

God the Almighty is alone in His greatness. Jesus never said he's the son of God nor did he say he's God. He knows he's the prophet of God and that's what he told everyone he was.

Horse lover the bible says that God himself called Jesus his son.

The Bible you read now, isn't the accurate one. It's NOT the same one sent to Jesus.

Of which religion and denomination are you requesting an answer from? If you don't specify, the answer is yes, no, and maybe.

I am a Christian.

That's not specific enough. In fact, I thought of another answer. You now narrowed it down to: yes, no, maybe, and partly.

Rmoron, All Christians believe that Jesus Is God, that's what makes them a Christian!!
Report as
Not necessarily, but that isn't the issue here. He asked about belief alone being worthy of salvation. That has all sorts of interpretations.

True, even the devil believes AND trembles!

No. Jesus and God are not the same. My dad prayed about it and God told Him, "I am God, I have a Son, and I have a Spirit." And I believe you have to be filled with the Holy Ghost to be saved :) God bless!

There are many Bible texts that show that it is not possible for God and Jesus to be the same person.
For eaxample, in Psalm 90:2 says that God is indefinite. However, in Colossians 1:15 that Jesus was the first born of God's creations. These two texts demonstrate that God has no beginning nor end, and that Jesus was created by God, and therefore had a beggining.
In John 14:28 Jesus said: "The father is greater than I am".
Also, Jesus himself clearly differentiates himself from his father in John 17:3: "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ."
This text also answers your question, on of the necesary requirements to be saved is to take in knowledge and believe in God and his son, Jesus. Believing otherwise is not taking in the knowledge that Gad has provided for us in his word the Bible.
I hope this helps. If you have any doubts, don't hesitate to "ask"!

They are not the same person, but they are both,(or all 3) God!!! Take an egg for example, you have a yolk, a shell and the white part, they are all different parts of an egg but all part of an egg! You can't have one part without the others. Same principle!

If you have any doubts, pray and ask GOD to show you in HIS WORD!!

If you believe the bible is true, look for your answer there. Read the gospel of John Chapter 3. Answers from people are just opinions, answers from the bible are from God, if you believe the bible to be his word.

Jesus is the eternal God. That He is not a created being and that this credential as God is the reason Jesus has the ability and the legal authority to not only die for all of our sins, but the power to remove these sins as though they never existed, which is the true meaning of "Justification". In John chapter 8 after Jesus went to great lengths to tell the Scribes and the Pharisees that He is the Eternal God, He told them that if they did not believe that He is God, they would die in their sins. Notice that that the word "He" in John 8:24 is capitalized, as the translators understood that Jesus was telling the Scribes and Pharisees that unless they believed He is the Eternal God, they could not be saved. There is no salvation for any human being if Jesus is just another man. No man has the ability to pay for the sins of the whole world. Neither does He have the power to raise Himself from the dead even after he has died. A person needs to know that the object of their faith has the power and ability to deliver on the promises that He has made.

Not only is the answer no, there isn't a need to be "saved" in the first place! Salvation and redemption are at the national level, not that of the individual. And that redemption already occurred at the Exodus of Israel from Egypt. There is no need for another redemption. Since Israel was already "saved" there is no need for another salvation, and that wouldn't be at the individual level anyway. When the Messiah comes, it will again be redemption for the nation. It is quite a different thing though that individuals pray to God to save their lives when in mortal danger, or help their business from going down, or for the healing of a dear one. But that's not the "saving" you are asking about. In the sense of your question, no saving is needed.

I dint think you absolutely have to believe in the trinity to be saved but you do have to believe Jesus is the son of God and that Jesus is Christ and Messiah because God Himself says so and anything else is calling God a liar.

Yes, you do have to believe in the trinity to be saved! That's the whole point of being a Christian! 3 parts of the God head. I keep hearing Christians say Jesus is God's Son and that's true, but He's not only God's Son HE IS GOD!!! The Christian faith means nothing if Jesus is not God!

Believe God is the creator, Believe Jesus Christ is your savior and he died for you and rose again. Accept his salvation for you, confess your sins and repent. Then you will be saved
