Complete 8 pages APA formatted article: Soteriology. The word Soteriology has come to be associated with deliverance from all sins and afflictions. (Richardson undated, screen 1)And the rest of the paper reflects on how true Soteriology itself can defend its claims of atonement through faith in Christ.
Though the word Soteriology does not exist in the scriptures, (“What is” 2006, screen 1) the whole New Testament can be itself called an express expansion of the term. And what better light than to examine the atonement through faith in Christ than the very Scriptures. In Psalms 49:6-9, the Lord God says They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches. None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) That he should still live forever, and not see corruption. The Lord God foretells of the coming of the Son who will never see corruption but remain as true and pure. Though He could have chosen any and all, He chose to show us His wonder and glory, not in His power or might, but in His meekness, and mercy. It is only through Christ Jesus that man is atoned for their sins.
He further confirms this as He says in Matthew 18:11, For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. Mankind had fallen. It was only through His arm (With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him) (Psalm 89:21) and Isaiah 40:10
Behold, the Lord GOD will come with a strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. Our reward is found through obedience to Lord Jesus. He is the way to salvation there is no other.
Christ spoke to us and told us that He is the way. No one saves whom He chooses to reveal to the Father will know Him. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father. neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. (Matt. 11:27).
