 The Need of Salvation

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the need for salvation as expressed by the New Testament writers. Moral bankruptcy is presented in terms of universal judgment, metaphors for sin (guilt, stain, enmity, bondage), the primal sin of Adam, the principalities and powers, Satan, the Antichrist, and the unforgivable sin. Evil is seen as a real and powerful entity, with a real and powerful grip on human life and the entire cosmos.

Keywords: salvation; sin; universality of judgement; evil; Satan; Antichrist
