The term eternal salvation, heavenly salvation or spiritual salvation refers to the salvation of the soul, whereby the soul would be freed from an eternal threat (eternal punishment or eternal damnation) that awaits it after death. Christianity accepts salvation as emancipation from the chain of sin and curse, resulting in eternal life with The Almighty within his kingdom. Christ’s sacrifice makes him called Savior.
Salvation is one of the most important spiritual concepts in Christianity, stuck with the deity of Jesus and the explanation of the kingdom of Christ.
Traditionally, among Christians, salvation is a primary goal. Others argue that the main goal of Christianity is to fulfill God’s will, accept his kingdom, or that the two concepts are equivalent.
The contemplation of salvation is based on the life of a state of unsaved, from which the subject (or humanity) needs to be redeemed.

This says that since there is only one mediator between man and God, Jesus Christ, if a person has not heard of him, the eternal curse is the only possibility for him (although most of his followers make exceptions for children and children). disabled). mental). Another is pluralism, which explains that all religion is a way to God, but differs from universalism in that it does not say that all church members of other religions will be saved. The third is inclusivism. This doctrine explains that Jesus can refer to every human interior through the Holy Spirit, and if anyone really refuses, they will be saved.
