Only Jesus: Jesus Christ The One and Only Savior. Church Starting Network, 2012 Ebbie C. Smith In the face of the growing religious tolerance that teaches that salvation may be found in many sources other than personal faith in the historic Christ, Ebbie Smith, affirms the biblical teaching of the unique Savior, Jesus Christ. The study clearly demonstrates the unbiblical nature of Universalism and other wider-hope theory of salvation. Smith declares firmly that the Bible only promises salvation to those who enter a personal relationship with the living Christ during that person’s lifetime. Smith admits that the attractiveness of wider-hope theories that promise salvation through other religions and systems. These unfounded teachings can to some degree alleviate the Christian concern for those who do not believe, especially for those who do not hear the Message of Christ. Likewise, Smith acknowledges that the Sovereign God is free to save any person the Almighty choices. This book does, however, declare that God’s Revelation in the Bible promises no other way of salvation except in Christ Jesus. We must not, says Smith, rely on any promise not in the Bible and must not promise anything not affirmed in Scripture. The primary plea in the book is that those who hold the scriptural truth of Jesus Christ the one and only Savior be far more zealous in sharing this promise with those away from the Savior. The author leaves readers with two burning statements: First, “Is it not possible that our negligence in effective witness is the greatest liberalism of all?” Second, “Is it not possible that the most alarming sin is the Evangelical neglect of the responsibilities of effective and loving witness rather than the liberal misinterpretation of biblical teaching?
