Thats not how Jesus phrased it. He said ""If anyone would come after me, let him take up his cross and follow me"meshak said:So it is clear that you need to follow Him if you want salvation,
meshak said:*...not believe in the trinity.
We might agree on that Meshak. I believe a person can trust in Christ as their Savior and not understand all the theology. New converts, young children and even mentally challenged people understand that what Jesus did at the cross saves them. (That they are incapable of saving themselves) As their relationship with Jesus grows, they hopefully soon realize the the true nature...the divinity of the One they now follow.
However, if that person thinks that what Christ did is not enough, and that they must earn their salvation...then that person likely also does not / can not truely know who Jesus truely is.*
