How can a Jew Answer the Christian missionary's Question, "Are you saved?" . Let's find out in this post.
The Christian belief that atonement can only be effected through Jesus runs counter to the provisions for atonement prescribed in the Jewish Scriptures. First and foremost, God, and no one else, provides the means of reconciliation and fellowship (2 Chronicles 7:14), which precludes any claim for atonement through the death of Jesus. In contrast to the Christian concept that man is hopelessly entrapped in sin, the Jewish Scriptures provide ample testimony that although man may have an inclination towards evil (Genesis 8:21) the means of personal reconciliation with God are always at hand (e.g. Psalms 51:16-19, Jeremiah 29:13).
The Christian missionary's Question, "Are you saved?" is a Question having no basis in the Jewish Scriptures. Its origin lies in the New Testament and has no bearing on the spiritual life of the Jew.
