A Baptist website explains: "The Bible tells that there is one way to be saved and it is through believing Jesus died for your sins and asking Him to be your Savior."
Now if this is a true statement that "there is one way to be saved" how does the Centurion receive salvation before Jesus died for all those sins?
Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.” 7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! (Matthew 8:5-10 NKJV)
The text clearly does not say anything about Jesus Dying on the Cross. I want to know why faith is placed on Jesus Dying on the Cross in comparison to the type of faith shown by the Centurion?
