Daily Bible Nugget #18, Acts 4:12

The Nugget:

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

My Comment:

In the news today a very significant religious leader asserted in a letter to an atheist leader that atheists can go to heaven too if they obey their conscience, even if they do not believe in God. The Bible very clearly declares otherwise. The Bible commands us to “prove all things; hold fast to what is true” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). The Bible also says “If they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” (Isaiah 8:20). Salvation is only through believing in Jesus Christ, “the only name given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Jesus himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). The Bible says it. I believe it. That settles it!

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this issue:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 1220.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 1240 or in Logos 5 Bible software for Acts 4:12.

(3) Lacking access to those two resources, consult the cross references for this passage as I have developed them further given below:

  1. ken sagely says:

    acts 4.12 reminds of the the great hymn “how firm a foundation” 11 tim 2.19 “the
    foundation of god standeth sure” this is one of those foundaional verses.
    acts 4.12 neither is there salvation in any other; for there is no other name under
    heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved! i looked up several cross
    references and there are many for us to claim and to be blessed and encouraged.
    acts 10.42-43 and he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that
    it is he which was ordained of god to be the judge of quick and dead. vs 43 to him
    give all the prophets witness, that through his name shall receive remission of
    sins. mt 1.21 and she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name jesus:
    for he shall save his people from their sins. jn 3.36 he that believeth on the son
    hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the son shall not see life, but the
    wrath of god abideth on him. jn 14. 6 jesus saith unto him, i am the way, the truth,
    and the life no man cometh unto the father, but by me. i cor 3.11 for other
    foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood,hay, stubble.i tim 2.5-6 for there is
    one god, and one mediator between god and men, the man christ jesus.vs 6 who
    gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.heb 2.3 how shall we
    escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at the first began to be spoken
    by the lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him. heb 12.25
    see that ye refuse not him that speaketh, for if they escaped not who refused
    him that spake on earth, much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from
    him that speaketh from heaven. i jn 5.11-12 and this is the record, that god hath
    given to us eternal life, and this life is in his son. vs 12 he that hath the son hath
    life, and he that hath not the son of god hath not life. rev 7.9-10 after this i beheld
    and lo a great multitude which no man could number, of all nations, and kindre
    ds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the lamb, clothed
    with white robes, and palms in their hands. vs 10 and cried with a loud voice, say
    ing , salvation to our god which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the lamb
