The Saving Power of Religion?
January 20, 2009 12:26am CST
Do you believe there is a saving power of each or our religion? In what way? Or, is it not in our deeds that we will be saved and religion has nothing to do with it? Please share your thoughts on the subject. Thanks!

Religion and our good deeds isn't the assurance to salvation.. It is our personal relationship with GOD... the verse state"I am the way, the truth& the life.."(jn.3:16) the other verse state "It's not by might nor by power but by my spirit says the LORD" so it's not really us who is working for our salvation but it's GOD...

One definition of the word religion is: "the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices." So one may say that he belongs to this religion or that one, but may not adhere to the tenets of that religion. For instance someone may say he is a "Christian" but what kind of "Christian" is he? Does he live and act like Christ did? Or is he such in name only? My belief is, yes we must be Christians, followers of Christ but must also be like him as much as is humanly possible.

In the Christian belief deeds have nothing to do with it. We can show our faith by our deeds, but, the first and foremost thing we need to do is accept Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. That is what makes you a Christian. Good deeds are great, but, when you do good deeds without this one all important element than our deeds (as far as God is concerned) are pointless. Not so much pointless in that we have helped someone, but, pointless in the fact that deeds won't get us into Heaven. The world is full of people doing good deeds, but, very few of these people will become citezens of Heaven. There is so much more I would love to say on this, but, I can't find the exact words that I'm looking for. Please let me know if you have anymore questions :) Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija
