You also will not found "eternal salvation" unless you die.<quoted text>
You ask, "What is the difference if I believe in his teachings, or in the person?"
The difference is this, even the devil believes in the teachings of Jesus. But that has no effect....
For a mere human person to say they believe in Jesus' teachings is to imply that they see Jesus as just a man. And that his teachings are "good", or even "perfect". And this brings a temporal understanding and a temporal peace. But there is no eternal salvation and peace.(This is why you have written before that no one knows what lies beyond death of the body.)
But to believe in Jesus the person, means to accept that Jesus is both God and Man. And that his sacrifice, death and resurrection is what brings eternal salvation and peace.(Those of faith, in Jesus know, because they have touched Jesus. And they have eternal salvation and peace, though they may not understand it temporally.)
It is for this reason, as another example, that Buddhists do not consider Buddha as being God, but merely an "enlightened" man, and follow his teachings. And they still seek eternal salvation(nirvana) rather than having it.
I never got into a discussion with you on the many aspects of being a Christian. In all we have discussed, we never really get past this difference of hearing his sayings, and being a Christian yet. So I have yet to "connect" with your "perceptions".
We are no different in that regard.
Those like you, who think they know of what will become of others and their "eternal salvation", are only proving more and more of their ignorance towards what they believe and arrogance of others.
You may believe as you wish - as you already do.
