Solus Christus emphasizes that salvation can only be found through the death and resurrection of Christ alone. Scripture does not leave us under any illusion about this

Jesus said that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life (NOT A way, A truth and A life), no man comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6)

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5)

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. (John 3:36 and 1 John 5:12)

Now why is this important? Because there are many who believe that we can obtain salvation apart from Christ but the bible leaves no room for this teaching. If salvation could be found through Muhammed, Buddha, Krishna or through our good works, then there would be no reason for Jesus to die. But Christ was the only person who could satisfy the wrath of God and therefore atone for our sins because he himself was sinless and so took upon himself our sins and justified those who will repent and put their trust in him and him alone

Solus Christus!!
