The Process of being saved
« on: November 06, 2003, 02:34:22 PM »
First, I realize this is probably an impossible task. Everyone's process is unique. Yet I do believe there may be value in establishing a basic process guideline that references articles and training materials. We certainly talk about salvation as a process, so what would it look like if we documented it?

The referenced url will take you to my attempt to illustrate this process in one page. I am posting it here for your suggestions and comments for improvement.

Peace in your own personal process of salvation,

Looks a bit imposing, Dismas.

What is the purpose? As an evangelistic tool or something more in depth? The latter seems likely to me.

Have you got something in all those links that covers the Orthodox doctrine of salvation?

Finding out about that was a major shocker - and ultimately, a source of unspeakable joy - for me.

To finally be free of the notion of the "angry God" who demanded a human sacrifice!

I would say that what you've got is impressive but could be a lot simpler, especially if you want to use it to reach the heterodox.
The first condition of salvation is to keep the norm of the true faith and in no way to deviate from the established doctrine of the Fathers.

Thank you for your repsonse.
Yes, you might try some of the links. Personal Adoption of Salvation and How to acquire the true faith for instance...

Not sure how to make it any simpler as this process of salvation continues throughout our lifetime. Heterodox have many questions as do those in the orthodox church.

Yeah, I think you are probably right.

I will try some of the links when I get the chance.

Good work!  ;D
