Re: [kennyj] What does it mean to be Saved?
kennyj :

"What does it mean to get saved".

Chaplainbob has already given the standard answer to your question.
It is also perhaps the answer you find least 'helpful' or logically 'satisfactory'.

Contained within your question are a number of other relevant 'questions' which need to be discussed before your original question can be properly dealt with.

What do we mean by 'saved'?
What does scripture mean by 'saved'?
Is it possible, by anything we might do, to get 'saved', as if we are currently not saved and we need therefore to do something to get God to award us the status of becoming 'saved'?
What might we be 'saved' from?
What might we be 'saved' for?
Whom might we be 'saved' by?

There are doubtless many additional relevant questions pertaining to 'getting saved', 'being saved', and 'continuing to be saved', to which scripture contains some satisfactory answers.

I am currently away from my computer, using my iPad and a friends wify, (that should read Wi-Fi and just goes to show how careful you need to be with internet communication to get the right information across).

I shall therefore need to wait until I get home to really give your question the thoughtful answer it really deserves.

However I will leave these supplementary questions to all interested viewers of this thread.

6) If God himself has ordained that our being 'saved' is a crucial, essential necessity for everybody, why would God leave it to US to decide whether we are or are not 'saved' and whose fault is it if we are not?

Should the pot say to the potter, why hast thou made me thus?

Regards Chris (from my iPad).
In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 2 Cor. 5:19. Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
