There is only one way to God
There is no salvation outside
[We provide excepts below
from a discussion on salvation that you may find interesting. Ed.]
by John Kunnathu,
Before talking about the
means to attain salvation, we need to make sure we mean the same
thing by the word "salvation". We often mistakenly assume that a word has
the same meaning always and everywhere.
Could you please tell us what
exactly you mean by that word? In order to help think about this, let me
offer a few options.
1. From what condition do we need a salvation?
For example, if someone is in a prison, he needs salvation from the prison.
If someone is ill, he needs salvation from the illness.
B. Consequence of sin
C. Penalty of sin
H. God's wrath to us
Whatever answer you choose,
you will have to define and explain it further. For example, if you choose A
(sin), you have to define and explain what you mean by that word.
If you choose more than one
answer, please explain why, and explain how they are related.
2. Who needs salvation?
A. All human beings
B. All universe
C. the human soul
D. all non- Christians
3. When does salvation
B. in the future
C. after death
By Itoop Korah, MOSC Group
We need salvation from Satan,
the father of sin and restoration to God in a fullness or perfection which
God accepts. All mankind needs this. Christ is the only one who makes this
possible. That's why there is only one savior which is Jesus Christ alone.
Sin means separation from
God. Satan is the originator of sin. Salvation means restoration to God in a
fullness like in Christ. Jesus Christ is he son of God. The Second of the
Holy Trinity who in His incarnation was God among us.
I have a couple of Bible
verses which, in this context will make a lot of sense.( St. John 3:)
For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should
not perish, but have eternal life.
17 For God sent not the Son
into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved
18 He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been
judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only
begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men
loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the
light, lest his works should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his works may be
made manifest, that they have been wrought in God.
He that believeth on the Son hath eternal life; but he that obeyeth not the
Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.
We have some liberals and
intellectuals who feel otherwise about Jesus and the salvation he provides.
Jesus is God and all who look to Him will be saved. All the other Gods/ ways
are false and those who look to them will surely perish without salvation.
I'm not ashamed of my Christ
and His salvation. This doesn't make me a fundamentalist. I'm a believer
I am the bread
A sermon based on John 6:35.
St. John recorded seven statements by which Jesus Christ declared His
deity that is; He was one with God the Father.
Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Son of God was crucified on the Cross. He resurrected from the dead with
his own body. It was not an appearance.
Jesus said: "I
am the way, the truth, and the life"
Jesus made everything so simple, and we've made it so complicated.
