I never really understood the whole idea of being “saved”. What did I need being saved from? I felt safe. Where was the danger? Satan?
Father Ken brought up an interesting idea that helps explain the idea of being “saved” to some extent. Every human being is plagued by three questions, no matter what their culture, philosophy, religion, etc. These three questions are: 1) Who am I? 2) Where did I come from? 3) Where am I going? Having faith in Christ and God “saves” you from the anxiety and frustration of trying to find answers to these three questions.
