Salvation in Christianity For Christians, the Bible contains God’s law and is a guide to salvation and eternal life. Christians may also believe that God’s grace and the Holy Spirit can lead to.

Salvation, in religion, the deliverance of humankind from such fundamentally negative or disabling conditions as suffering, evil, finitude, and death. In some religious beliefs it also entails the restoration or raising up of the natural world to a higher realm or state.

In religion and theology, salvation is the saving of the soul from sin and its consequences. It may also be called deliverance or redemption from sin and its effects.

Depending on the religion or even denomination, salvation is considered to be caused either only by the grace of God (i.e. unmerited and unearned), or by faith, good deeds (works), or a combination thereof.

Christian teaching explains that sin separates humans from God and prevents salvation. Many Christians believe that God gave humans free will so it is up to each person to decide for themselves.

Of the many Hebrew words used to signify salvation, yasa [ [;v"y] (to save, help in distress, rescue, deliver, set free) appears most frequently in the Old Testament. Commonly, the deliverance of which the Old Testament speaks is material in nature, though there are important exceptions.

The most common meaning of salvation is to be saved by God from the consequences of our sin. But the Bible speaks of our salvation in a bit fuller terms than simply being rescued from hell. When. Isaiah’s name—meaning “Jehovah is salvation”—reflects the covenant of salvation made with the house of Israel, given to their progenitors Abraham and Sarah, and called the Abrahamic covenant.

As used in Romans –10, the words “saved” and “salvation” signify a covenant relationship with Jesus Christ. Through this covenant relationship, followers of Christ are assured salvation from the eternal consequences of sin if they are obedient. A definition of the Christian doctrine of salvation would be “The deliverance, by the grace of God, from eternal punishment for sin which is granted to those who accept by faith God’s conditions of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.”.

The theology of religions is the branch of theology (mostly represented by Christian, Hindu, Islamic and Jewish theology) and religious studies that attempts to theologically evaluate the phenomena of religions.

Three important schools within Christian part of this field are pluralism, inclusivism, and exclusivism, which describe the relation of other religious traditions to Christianity and. Salvation carried tremendous meaning in Paul’s day, the most basic being “ deliverance,” and it was applied to personal and national deliverance.

The emperor was looked on as a "savior" as was the physician who healed you of illness. It is interesting that Collin's (secular) dictionary defines " salvation " as. Simply put, God's plan of salvation is the divine romance recorded in the pages of the Bible.

Biblical salvation is God's way of providing his people deliverance from sin and spiritual death through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Manichæism (/ ˌ m æ n ɪ ˈ k iː ɪ z əm /; in New Persian آیین مانی Ãyīnⁱ Mānī; Chinese: 摩 尼 教; pinyin: Mó ní Jiào) was a major religion founded in the 3rd century AD by the Persian prophet Mani (c.

– AD) in the Sasanian Empire. Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil.

A new perspective on the role of religion in the work of Langston Hughes Langston's Salvation offers a fascinating exploration into the religious thought of Langston Hughes. Known for his poetry, plays, and social activism, the importance of religion in Hughes’ work has historically been ignored or dismissed.

The following is an excerpt from article DB by H. Wayne House. The full PDF can be viewed by following the link below the excerpt. The Christian church today is divided between Christians who believe that baptism is necessary for salvation and those who view it only as an ordinance symbolizing the inward work of [ ].

The Meaning of Baptism. A general definition of the word baptism is “a rite of washing with water as a sign of religious purification and consecration.” This rite was practiced frequently in the Old Testament.

It signified purity or cleansing from sin and devotion to God. The notion that salvation is totally of God and is the result of nothing that anyone does is hard to grasp.

To many, this solution is too easy. Human nature almost demands us to tack something onto the end. And many through the ages have felt compelled to add onto the central message of Christianity.

[ ].Revelation, in religion, the disclosure of divine or sacred reality or purpose to humanity. In the religious view, such disclosure may come through mystical insights, historical events, or spiritual experiences that transform the lives of individuals and groups. Every great religion acknowledges.The study of religion encompasses a wide variety of academic disciplines, including theology, comparative religion and social scientific studies.

Theories of religion offer various explanations for the origins and workings of religion, including the ontological foundations of religious being and belief.
