What Does It Take to Get Saved?
It has come to my mind that there seem to be some differences among different religions about what creates "salvation"? For those of you that have more "knowledge" about these things, perhaps you could list various religions and what is required by those religions in order for a person to be accepted into Heaven.

There are many different religions throughout the world with some having thousands of 'gods' but being saved by Grace through Faith and that not of ourselves, but a gift from God lest any man should boast only comes from the God of the Bible.
All religions have rules/laws, but no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident for the just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith but the man that follows them shall live in them. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree that the blessing of Abraham might come on the rest of the world through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
God reconciled the world to himself through Jesus, not counting their sins against them, and entrusting us with the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors, speaking on behalf of the Messiah, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore people on the Messiah’s behalf to be reconciled to God. The Messiah did not know sin, but God made him to be sin on our behalf so that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
God has done His part, but you must profess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, then you will be saved. Why? Because the way to covenant relationship is by believing with the heart, and the way to salvation is by professing with the mouth. The Bible says, ‘Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and unbelievers, since the same Lord is Lord of all, and is extremely generous towards all who call upon him. ‘All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.’

All other religions by the definition of religion is seeking to please the deity they worship. Only the God of the Bible offers to save us from the penalty of our sins, but also freely gives us the Holy Spirit to guide us.
