For over a thousand years, the Catholicism and their way of salvation was questioned and never placed in so much scrutiny until 15th century when the reformation started to creep in. There has been so much resistance to the point of bloodshed and the birth of the Protestants and later on the Evangelicals came into being. However, since the reformation until very recently, for over 500 years, the mode of salvation as we know them today was never questioned until the re-emergence of the Messianic movement, thus placing these unquestionable teaching into biblical scrutiny.
The Traditional. We will be discussing the traditional presentation of different Christian organizations with regards to salvation. I will quote verbatim their opinion with regards to the way of salvation of a person. In here, we will discuss seven (7) topics to get a complete picture of the traditional christian perspective with regards to salvation, being the core of its evangelistic approach and belief-system:
The Self-Test of Salvation
The Spiritual Laws
The Special Roman Road
The Steps to Salvation
The Statement of Salvation
The Saving Faith
The Truth. When Paul and Silas was in prison and there was an earthquake that opened up the prison doors and the guards thought that the prisoners escaped but Paul shouted and prevented the prisoner from killing himself. He then asked them how he can be saved and he was told to believe on Yeshua HaMashiach and he will be saved (Acts 16:25-31). But what is believing? The phrase “believe in Yeshua” what does it mean?
The most often quoted passage is about being born-again in John 3:5 but this is a private conversation between a teacher of the Law and Adonai Yeshua. There is another passage that was done publicly and it was never quoted. In Matt 19:16-26, a certain rich man asked Yeshua how he can have eternal life and Adonai Yeshua’s response is not accepted nor preached among the mainstream Christianity, unfortunately!
