The Christian religion, though not the exclusive possessor of the idea of redemption, has given to it a special definiteness and a dominant position. Taken in its widest sense, as deliverance from dangers and ills in general, most religions teach some form of it. It assumes an important position, however, only when the ills in question form part of a great system against which human power is helpless. According to Christian belief, sin as the human predicament is considered to be universal.

Salvation is made possible by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus , which in the context of salvation is referred to as the " atonement ". While some of the differences are as widespread as Christianity itself, the overwhelming majority agrees that salvation is made possible by the work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God , dying on the cross. At the heart of Christian faith is the reality and hope of salvation in Jesus Christ.
Christian faith is faith in the God of salvation revealed in Jesus of Nazareth. The Christian tradition has always equated this salvation with the transcendent, eschatological fulfillment of human existence in a life freed from sin, finitude, and mortality and united with the triune God. This is perhaps the non-negotiable item of Christian faith. What has been a matter of debate is the relation between salvation and our activities in the world. The Bible presents salvation in the form of a story that describes the outworking of God's eternal plan to deal with the problem of human sin.
The story is set against the background of the history of God's people and reaches its climax in the person and work of Christ. The Old Testament part of the story shows that people are sinners by nature, and describes a series of covenants by which God sets people free and makes promises to them.
His plan includes the promise of blessing for all nations through Abraham and the redemption of Israel from every form of bondage. God showed his saving power throughout Israel's history, but he also spoke about a Messianic figure who would save all people from the power, guilt, and penalty of sin. This role was fulfilled by Jesus, who will ultimately destroy all the devil's work, including suffering, pain, and death. Variant views on salvation are among the main fault lines dividing the various Christian denominations , both between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism and within Protestantism, notably in the Calvinist—Arminian debate , and the fault lines include conflicting definitions of depravity , predestination , atonement , but most pointedly justification.
Salvation, according to most denominations, is believed to be a process that begins when a person first becomes a Christian, continues through that person's life, and is completed when they stand before Christ in judgment. Therefore, according to Catholic apologist James Akin, the faithful Christian can say in faith and hope, "I have been saved; I am being saved; and I will be saved.
Christian salvation concepts are varied and complicated by certain theological concepts, traditional beliefs, and dogmas. Scripture is subject to individual and ecclesiastical interpretations. While some of the differences are as widespread as Christianity itself, the overwhelming majority agrees that salvation is made possible by the work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, dying on the cross.
Prayer/Key to Salvation
The purpose of salvation is debated, but in general most Christian theologians agree that God devised and implemented his plan of salvation because he loves them and regards human beings as his children. Since human existence on Earth is said to be "given to sin", [Jn ] salvation also has connotations that deal with the liberation  of human beings from sin, and the suffering associated with the punishment of sin—i.
Christians believe that salvation depends on the grace of God. Stagg writes that a fact assumed throughout the Bible is that humanity is in, "serious trouble from which we need deliverance…. The fact of sin as the human predicament is implied in the mission of Jesus, and it is explicitly affirmed in that connection". By its nature, salvation must answer to the plight of humankind as it actually is.
Each individual's plight as sinner is the result of a fatal choice involving the whole person in bondage, guilt, estrangement, and death. Therefore, salvation must be concerned with the total person. According to doctrine of the Latter Day Saint movement , the plan of salvation is a plan that God created to save, redeem, and exalt humankind.
The first appearance of the graphical representation of the plan of salvation is in the missionary manual entitled A Systematic Program for Teaching the Gospel. In Islam, salvation refers to the eventual entrance to Paradise. Islam teaches that people who die disbelieving in God do not receive salvation. It also teaches that non-Muslims who die believing in the God but disbelieving in his message Islam , are left to his will.
Those who die believing in the One God and his message Islam receive salvation. Whoever said "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah" and has in his heart good faith equal to the weight of a barley grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah" and has in his heart good faith equal to the weight of a wheat grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah" and has in his heart good faith equal to the weight of an atom will be taken out of Hell.
Salvation Bible Verses
If anyone desires a religion other than Islam submission to Allah , never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost all spiritual good. Those who believe in the Qur'an , those who follow the Jewish scriptures , and the Sabians and the Christians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
Islam also stresses that in order to gain salvation, one must also avoid sinning along with performing good deeds. Islam acknowledges the inclination of humanity towards sin. Islam teaches that no one can gain salvation simply by virtue of their belief or deeds, instead it is the Mercy of God, which merits them salvation. Islam teaches that God is Merciful. Allah accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and repent soon afterwards; to them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom. Of no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil, until death faces one of them, and he says, "Now have I repented indeed;" nor of those who die rejecting Faith: for them have We prepared a punishment most grievous.
Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed. Islam describes a true believer to have Love of God and Fear of God. Islam also teaches that every person is responsible for their own sins.
The Quran states;. If ye reject Allah , Truly Allah hath no need of you; but He liketh not ingratitude from His servants: if ye are grateful, He is pleased with you.
No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another. In the end, to your Lord is your Return, when He will tell you the truth of all that ye did in this life.
RORATE CÆLI: Prayer, the Key to Salvation
Sin in Islam is not a state, but an action a bad deed ; Islam teaches that a child is born sinless, regardless of the belief of his parents, dies a Muslim; he enters heaven, and does not enter hell. Sahih al-Bukhari , Narrated Aisha, that Mohammad said, "Do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately, and receive good news because one's good deeds will not make him enter Paradise.
There are acts of worship that Islam teaches to be mandatory. Islam is built on five principles. Narrated Ibn 'Umar that Muhammad said,. Not performing the mandatory acts of worship may deprive Muslims of the chance of salvation.
Hinduism , Buddhism , Jainism and Sikhism share certain key concepts, which are interpreted differently by different groups and individuals. Nirvana is the profound peace of mind that is acquired with moksha liberation. In Buddhism and Jainism , it is the state of being free from suffering. In Hindu philosophy , it is union with the Brahman Supreme Being.
The word literally means "blown out" as in a candle and refers, in the Buddhist context, to the blowing out of the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion,   and the imperturbable stillness of mind acquired thereafter. In Theravada Buddhism the emphasis is on one's own liberation from samsara.
In Jainism , salvation , moksa and nirvana are one and the same. It then becomes a siddha literally means one who has accomplished his ultimate objective. Attaining Moksa requires annihilation of all karmas , good and bad, because if karma is left, it must bear fruit.
