Catechism #29 & 30

Question #29: Why is the Son of God called "Jesus," meaning "savior"?

Answer
: Because he saves us from our sins. Salvation cannot be found in anyone else; it is futile to look for any salvation elsewhere (Matt. 1:21; Heb. 7:25; Isa. 43:11; John 15:5; Acts 4:11-12; 1 Tim. 2:5).


Question #30
: Do those who look for their salvation and security in saints, in themselves, or elsewhere really believe in the only savior Jesus?

Answer:
No. Although they boast of being his, by their deeds they deny the only savior and deliverer, Jesus.

Either Jesus is not a perfect savior, or those who in true faith accept this savior
have in him all they need for their salvation (1 Cor. 1:12-13; Gal. 5:4; Col. 1:19-20; 2:10; 1 John 1:7)
