How To Be Saved
Are you saved?
This is the most important question you will ever consider. Contained in this question are the four classical questions of existence:
- Who Am I?
- Where Did I Come From?
- Why Am I Here?
- Where Am I Going?
In order to be "saved," there are certain principles one must accept.
First, there is an Holy God who has ordered the Universe and is the Creator of all Life. This addresses the question of who a person is ,since they are a creation of an Intelligent Creator, made in the image or likeness of the Creator. Where humanity originated is also answered since as a creation of God we ultimately have our beginning from God.
Second, if we grant the existence of an Intelligent Creator and Designer, then our existence has a purpose. Everything ever made exists for some reason. The purpose of our existence is directly connected to the question of our salvation. The need of salvation implies we, as created intelligent beings, have not lived consistent with our reason for existence.
Third, since our identity is grounded in the Person of the Creator, our origin is not in some primordial soup but from an Intelligent Designer. The Designer had a purpose for our existence in the here and now, and our future with the Designer will be somewhere else depending on our choices now. There are worlds of things both seen and unseen in the physical world, and it is plausible to believe there is an unseen realm of spiritual things.
We ask you to examine the passages, consider the presentation of arguments, and ask yourself if what is presented agrees with the simple and obvious meaning of what you read.
There is an old axiom in logic concerning conflicting and contradictory viewpoints, it is given below:
- You may be right, and I may be wrong.
- I may be right, and you may be wrong.
- We both cannot be right, and it is possible we may both be wrong.
Thank you for taking the time to consider the issue of your soul and your eternal destiny.
