Only Jesus saves, for scripture says:
Ac 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Get that? There is no salvation in any other. That means no-one else can save us. That even means Jehovah - when this is given as the designation of the Father - for the Father was not made flesh to die on a cross as a sacrifice for our sins, but Jesus was.
In claiming to be the Son of God, Jesus was also claiming equality with God, by the way. The Jews understood this, and that is why they tried to kill him. Here is the reference:
Joh 5:18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
The resurrection is the proof that Jesus was who he said he was (Acts 13:33) and that his death on the cross was acceptable before the Father as the only atoning sacrifice for sins (Roms 4:24).
Regarding Allah - how can he save? What does he do about the problem of sins? Has he ever offered any blood? No, Islam is legal; it says that IF YOU DO THIS you will be saved. You have to pray 5 times a day, go to the mosque, make a pilgrimage to Mecca, etc. - in other words, carry out a load of religious observances.
But St. Paul says that by the law no-one can be saved - it is only by faith (Roms. 3:20-21) - not by Jewish law, nor by Muslim.
What you believe about Jesus matters, because it pertains to salvation. If you do not believe that Jesus is the one sent by God to save us (ie. Christ), as Jesus said, you will die in your sins (John 8:24). That includes Muslims, too.
The Christian scriptures say that Jesus was more than a prophet - he was the Son of God. The Muslim scriptures say that he was merely a man, though a prophet. Therefore, their beliefs are contradictory. That means that they can't both be right. It is either, or, or none at all.
Regarding Buddha, as someone has already said, he never claimed to be anything other than a prophet.

I'm putting my money on Shiva the Destroyer, unless you throw Zeus or Thor into the ring, which would change the dynamics a little, but maybe not the result. Also, Jehovah and Allah are two names for the same guy. I think you have to basically toss Jesus almost immediately. He's not going to take his old man. Really, as gods go, you have to give a lot of respect to a guy capable of flooding the whole planet, but since none of the gods are really confined to the planet, I'm not sure how far that power would go for him in a rumble. Santa's probably out as fast as Jesus. He doesn't really have powers other than the sleigh and perhaps a magic gift bag. Even if we assume that he can pull stuff like rocket launchers out of that bag, I don't think his tech advantage keeps in the fight long against real god-like powers. Budda is a peaceful dude, and not even a god. He's just a really smart guy. He may be clever, but that's not going to help him much against floods, lightning bolts, or Thor's hammer. On the other hand, if you kill him he just moves on to the next plane of existence, and could even reach nirvana, so the guy could win by losing. However, I think that's perhaps a bit too metaphysical and we should just figure out who's left standing at the end of the brawl. So, once again we're going to say Jehovah and Allah are the same guy. We also have Shiva, and lets include Zeus and Thor. The real key to this four way deathmatch is whether Jehovah/Allah is the vengeful, Old Testament guy, or the mellower, peace loving New Testament guy. If think that with the New Testament and the Qur'an being the books currently accepted, we have to go with the newer, mellower God. Despite the irrational violence often done at the hands of Christians and Muslims, the books teach about a peaceful god. Based on that, gods like Shiva, Zeus, and Thor, who are a little more willing to use violence and aggression to achieve their ends get the nod. Of these, I think Zeus is out first. He's a powerful dude, but with just that lightning bolt his weapons are limited, and he's got too many other inter-god rivalries going on. While Thor is just kicking butt and taking names, Zeus has to watch his back to keep track of what Hades and Poseidon and others are up to. Now we're down to Shiva and Thor. Thor is one tough god, there's no disputing that, and as godlike weapons go, that hammer really rocks. Not much is going to withstand that, but some gods might. Finally, we come to Shiva. While Thor is a formidable fighter, I think when it comes to total bad-asses, Shiva stands alone. He wears serpents as ornaments, he has the garland of skulls, he has a demon holding a cobra at his feet. If anyone but another God saw this, they'd poop themselves. Then he controls fire and weather, and having that third eye has to give him a tactical advantage in combat. When you're not dealing with serpents and demons and snakes and fire and wind and lightning, or ducking the heads of some of the other gods he's already decapitated, he's running you through with his trident. He's the father of three other gods, and as the supreme god, probably has additional forces at his disposal. Sorry, other gods, but don't mess with Shiva.

Jesus is a great and holy prophet, he only can save you by delivering Allah's message.
Buddha is not god , and his followers never claimed him to be one.
Dying for man's sin is a false myth that undermined the true Christianity , so is the Trinity.
Wake up please. if you still want to live in vain
you may talk 2 bastard as suggested by one participant here .

Jesus was one of His prophets and he never died.
Buddha is a big fat stinky guy who couldn t move a finger. Sitting down for loooong time made people think he was meditating but actually he just was too fat to move.

Just to clarify things, Buddha never claimed to be god. Buddhists do not believe that Buddha is god. He was an enlightened man. Anyone can be enlightened.Source(s): A Buddhist atheist.
