What is it to be saved

Salvation is a complex, lifelong process, in which a person is freed from the degrading actions, and world view of our time, which cause one to be at war and in endless skirmishes with Yahweh, the creator God, who is Reality itself.


The idea that faith saves is such:

One acts on their world view, and analyzes what is better. Wherever a man is condemned, he does not believe his action wrong, but justified, for his world view, or else believes he cannot alter his punishment, or acts to become right with Truth.


Salvation consists of literally becoming worthy of spending eternity(all time) with God. This is the purpose of our existence, to spend it with Existence Himself.It is conducted via obeying God in the sacraments, and believing his message, and obeying him and his message, in love.

(Marc Evan Aupiais, on the 19th day of the 3rd month of the year 2008)

23 What he commands is that we believe in his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as Christ commanded us. 24 Those who obey God's commands live in union with God and God lives in union with them. And because of the Spirit that God has given us we know that God lives in union with us.
