Do Muslims, or anyone for that matter, need to believe that Jesus Christ is God in order to be saved by his blood atonement?

This is the answer to a question that was asked by someone on Quora

Yes, every human being regardless of what religion they may call themselves must believe in Jesus Christ to be saved. It is the very name of Jesus that means salvation.

Remember this is what Jesus says, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man can get to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) I’m going to put a big emphasis on the word THROUGH.

God is the Father and is IN Heaven. Everyone who claims they want to get to Heaven when they pass from this world is also claiming to want to get to God who is literal Heaven and Paradise and this is because no heartache, sin, poverty, sickness, sadness, or anything has come with the fall of man when mankind sinned in this world. Nothing dreadful you could think of can reside in the presence of God. There is only Joy, peace, tranquility, Holiness, and His Righteousness.

I said all of that to say this, to GET to this place called Heaven we can not have sin present in our thoughts, hearts, and minds, and we have to be wiped clean of sin and sinful works that come from our hands because as stated earlier sin CANNOT be in the presence of God. So it is by the blood of Jesus that when you have faith and believe in Jesus Christ your sins are wiped clean, and you may be in the presence of God, or in other words a person may get to Heaven.

Jesus is the Word of God and when God speaks notice how back in the beginning in the Book of Genesis in the Bible that when God made everything and when God spoke all that came from His mouth was good as God said it is good all that He had made. His Word who is Jesus causes things that were once unclean and sinful to be made clean and pure, as they were in the beginning before man sinned against God.

Only God can clean a person from within because God is Spirit, and it is the spirit of man that needs to be cleansed of sin. And when you believe in Jesus, who is the Word of God, you also will be IN the Word of God and the Word of God will be IN you. Jesus also says this in John 14:15-21.

This is because Jesus, who says, I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life…says He is the Truth. When you believe in the Truth, the truth will reside within you while you are in the truth, and this is when sanctification happens.

Without believing in Jesus, then you can’t be in the truth. You can’t be sanctified and made good by the lips of God.

So yes, for anyone to be saved you must believe in the name of Jesus Christ which is also saying you must believe in God’s truth and not any of the “truths” of the world or of religions that come from the mind of man that can’t save you since the only thing coming from the world is lies and half-truths. Only God has The Truth and that’s His Son Jesus.
