The Christians claim that Jesus was the Messiah but the Muslims claim he was the wrong man, and the Jews say the Messiah hasn't arrived as yet. The problem here, of course, is that there isn't any Messiah, so any such attribute ascribed to any human just won't stick. Mankind must save itself, and in particular, each human must save him or herself. The desire to be saved is not something that springs from humans, but an idea that has been put forth by the religious elite. If mankind can be made nervous about their future chances, then they will be all the more likely to seek assistance from the religious elite, and pay well for it we might add. Each human makes their own path, and earns their own reward, and payment of money or goods and services to the religious elite has no effect whatsoever other than to make the religious elite happy.
