Religion is NOT a Basic Requirement to Salvation

I’ve been hooked on keeping a lot of deadlines alive. That explains my long absence to this blog.

I appreciate those who took time to reply to my post about Bro. Eli.

Anyway, here’s my reply to bro. Rey Profeta “…but religion is basic requirement to salvation..”

I believe in salvation but not within the context you just mentioned.

I won’t hang with a specific group because I believe in freedom of choice. Salvation is not enclosed in the four corners of a church and religion can’t save a soul. Salvation comes from my own effort.

If my actions are out-of-bounds or morality-wise they are not acceptable, it’s my loss. Sorry guys, but we are all living in a world where religions ‘kill’.

I was raised a roman catholic, but totally in defiance for most of its doctrines.

I like the way Bro. Eli explains his belief. He is witty enough to sort out facts from fallacy.

Just to correct: Rejecting a religion does not mean rejecting morality or salvation. 

A thought for inspiration:
All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.” – Dalai Lama

    yeah, true, coz not all people have the same belief. God is justice and we have innate moral virtues in us. everybody has a chance to salvation, being in the true church is a big factor but it doesn’t mean that you should be in it to be saved and being outside means damnation. God is justice.

    Sis remember, God sent only one (single) Jesus Christ to be the saviour of human kind. Not more Jesus, so the Jesus which is sent by God was teach religion too. How is it if you believe in Jesus Christ at which sent by God so should follow Him for you to be save isn’t it? Just think of it.

    GAWA 20:28
    Ingatan ninyo ang inyong sarili, at ang buong kawan, na sa kanila’y ginawa kayo ng Espiritu Santo na mga obispo, upang pakanin ninyo ang iglesia ng Dios na binili niya ng kaniyang sariling dugo.

    GAWA 20:28
    “Ingatan ninyo ang inyong sarili at ang buong kawan na pinaglagyan sa inyo ng Espiritu Santo bilang mga tagapamahala upang pamahalaan ang Iglesya ng Diyos, na kanyang tinubos ng sarili niyang dugo.

    THE ACTS 20:28
    Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

    Binili nga nya sa Dios ng kanyang sariling dugo ang Iglesia. isn’t it?
