Do I need to repeat myself?<quoted text>1. Path of Salvation? Compared to your knowledge of the path to damnation. Simply, you must be born again and receive Christ. First step, without it, there are no others.
There is no consistent Christian account of how humans are supposed to be saved, although this is of the utmost practical urgency. It is absurd that the aim of Christianity is human salvation and yet Christian doctrine does not make clear how this is achieved. Indeed, there are conflicting ideas of salvation suggested by the creeds, the gospels and Paul's letters. For example, one view of salvation presented in the Synoptic Gospels is that a person is saved by following a moral code. A second view, one maintained by Paul, John, and the Creeds, is that a person is saved by having faith in Jesus. In other words, the first path to salvation seems to be through works, whereas the second path to salvation is by faith alone.
Prove me wrong. I doubt you can. Show me for a fact that Scripture only ever speaks of one specific path to salvation. It doesn't, but hey - knock yourself out trying to make it seem so.
