Salvation It’s More Than Just Escaping Hell
“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:3)
I maintain that the religious traditional view regarding salvation is not only incomplete but, is also infiltrated with corruption because of a religious mind-set.
Salvation is more than escaping torture chamber of Hell and gaining bliss in heaven.
Salvation is not so much for the afterlife as it is for the present life in the here-and-now. The cross of Christ provides instant forgiveness for all men...it did not provide instant fullness of salvation! The fullness of salvation is a process of TRANSFORMATION by the Spirit of God. It encompasses deliverance from sin, peace with God, and the presence of the Holy Spirit in one’s life.
Salvation is an inward change in a person’s spirit and his spiritual condition which works its way to the soul and mind of person influencing a person's living making him productive in the kingdom of God in the earth in influencing the Community of Humanity to repent, turn from their own selfish ways and the ways of religion, and acknowledge that their sins are forgiven which allows the salvation process to begin. Man because of the finished work of Christ on the cross is born spiritually alive because he is born forgiven. The process of salvation through transformation, is spiritually alive the very moment a person yields to the Holy Spirit’s call to live inside a newly softened and yielding heart. A heart set apart from those who choose to continue in tune with the god of this world.
The forgiveness of ALL cost God the Father His only Son, who stamped out all sin debt and marked it “Paid in Full” for all sinners; past, present, and future. His work on the cross is finished, done, stretching back in the past and reaching into the future.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”. (John 3:16-17)
