Muslims and Christians agree that “Jesus is the savior,” according to Bawumia

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, vice president, has been aggressively advocating for religious harmony in the nation over the past week.

His first attempt was made on July 29 at the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Muslim Thanksgiving celebration.

“Religion promotes harmony. It is not a factor that sows discord. Religion shouldn’t ever be able to drive people apart.

“The NPP fosters community. We have chosen candidates based on their qualifications, not their religious affiliation, and we have fought elections on issues “At the occasion, he said.

He made similar calls again two days later, on July 31, when he was a distinguished guest of honor at the beginning of the 175th anniversary festivities of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Ghana (EPCG).

However, several social media users have expressed concern over his remarks about Jesus’ status.

We all believe in the God of Isaac, Jacob, and Abraham because we are all offspring of the one and only real God, whether we are Christians or Muslims. We all hold Mary’s virgin birth to be true. In remarks published on the presidency’s website, he stated, “We all believe that Jesus Christ is the savior and that Jesus Christ will return again to redeem the world.

Muslims as well as Christians have vigorously refuted the claim that believing in Jesus Christ as the Savior is necessary.

The majority of Muslims have refuted the assertion, claiming that nowhere in the Bible does it say that Jesus Christ is a savior and would return to save the world.

According to one Seidu Fiter’s Facebook post, “This is a lie or an uneducated attitude held by a Muslim. As MUSLIM, we believe and TRUST that all Prophets and non-Prophets from the first to the last generation would all depend on the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) to save us on the day of Judgment.

“Bawumia, Eii. He has turned away from the Prophet Muhammad and the Islam. Bawumia’s political philosophy is extremely peculiar “As expressed by another commenter.

A number of opposition figures have also attacked him, including Joseph Yammin, a former deputy minister, Dr. Omane Boamah, a former minister, and Joyce Bawah Mogtari, an aide to former president John Dramani Mahama.

All of them have accused him of putting his desire to become the NPP’s president ahead of his religious convictions.

Jesus’ standing in the Quran:

Islam’s sacred texts—the Quran and the Sunnah, or traditions passed down from the Prophets—do not recognize Jesus as a divine son or as the Creator of the universe.

The Qur’an claims that Jesus, known in Arabic as Isa, did not actually die but was instead raised to the level of Allah. He will descend before the Day of Resurrection and will then follow Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

Jesus will disprove the Jews’ assertion that they killed and crucified him, claims islamqa.com. And he will show that the Christians who made exaggerated claims about him—saying he was God, the son of God, or the third of three—were mistaken.

The son of Maryam will come among you to serve as a righteous judge, according to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The jizyah (payment paid by non-Muslims in an Islamic state) will be abolished, the cross will be destroyed, the pigs will be slaughtered, and money will become so common that no one will take it. (Agreed; Muslim, No. 155; recounted)
