    essential for salvation:

    This is it according to Jesus:

    Luke 10:25-37 New International Version (NIV)

    The Parable of the Good Samaritan





    25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”



    26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

    27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”



    28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”



    29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”



    30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’



    36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

    37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

    Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
    If you want to be true to God and Jesus, abandon any kind of violence at all cost. By advocating any kind of violence, you are misrepresenting Christianity.

    Most churches say it otherwise.


    So I am showing it what Jesus says.

    Because what Jesus says is the matter for Jesus' followers.


    My threads are mostly for public educations about Jesus teachings.

    i agree with the essentials of salvation according to the passage in the OP. my understanding may be different them some. the actions of your life define who you are and determine how you pass to the next world.

    Mat 25 42-43
    42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’

    living a life like this is living through Jesus. through that example is the way to the Father.

    in todays Christianity the Samaritan in Luke 10 might have issues making it to the next world such as:
    what does he believe?
    whats his denomination?
    what does he believe on the nature of Christ?
    what church doctrines does he accept?
    how did he get baptized?
    and the fruits of his life . . .not important.

    Samaritan account is just that, merciful action.

    Mat 25 42-43
    42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’
    This is love.

    living a life like this is living through Jesus. through that example is the way to the Father.
    Yes, Jesus talked about how to be loving. That was His main message.

    in todays Christianity the Samaritan in Luke 10 might have issues making it to the next world such as:
    what does he believe?
    whats his denomination?
    what does he believe on the nature of Christ?
    what church doctrines does he accept?
    how did he get baptized?
    and the fruits of his life . . .not important.
    I know but that's not what Jesus tells us to do.

    Christians are supposed to be Jesus followers.

    He says to follow me meaning do like what He did.

    It is so simple yet most churches are not interested, it seems.

    You see, I don't get much of positive reaction about His word.
