The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankinds judge on the last day. (Page 242, 243)
The plan of salvation is simple, and it does include the Muslims. It also includes the Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Buddhist, and anyone else who will put their trust in Jesus alone. It all depends on whose plan one is referring to. Is it mans plan or Gods plan?
Whos plan of salvation are they speaking of? I think it is obvious that they are referring to theirs. I would like to point out that just acknowledging the Creator does not save anyone. Satan acknowledges God, but he is not saved.
The Muslims deny the deity of Jesus Christ. They believe that He was just a good man and teacher. They do not believe that He is the Messiah.
The Muslim savior is a dead savior whom they call Allah. A true Christian depends and puts his trust in a risen savior, Jesus Christ. No one can go to heaven unless he goes through Jesus, not even a disbelieving Muslim, Baptist, Church of Christ, a good Catholic, or anyone else who denies Him.
The Muslims, like many religious people, depend on their good works of righteousness to get them to Heaven. The faith of Abraham was that he put his trust and faith in God (Jehovah); without faith it is impossible to please God
