Hello, Right of Center Filipino,

You state: The Bible, Buddhist texts and others only give the broad strokes on how to acheive salvation.

I'm not too familiar with Buddhism, but I am with the Bible, and as far as salvation (eternal life) goes, it's very lucid and clear.

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved" - Acts 16:31

For by grace are you saved through faith; and that salvation is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, and not of works, lest any man should boast. - Ephesians 2:8,9

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten [uniquely born] Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten [uniquely born] Son of God. - John 3:16,17,18

I'm interested in what "clear and lucid" verses in the Koran reveal the way of salvation guaranteed.

Since you seem convinced, please reveal which Koranic verses pertain to salvation.

Submitting....
