The Question of Religious Salvation: CAn Non-Christians be "Saved"?
That depends on which Christian you ask.
Evengelical Christians typically say “no”, because they believe you have to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior first, which mean becoming a Christian first.
Progressive Christians (like myself) have absolutely no problem saying adherents to other religions can experience salvation as we do through their own religious paths.
Even though the progressive Christian voice is in the minority right now, I believe that it embodies the Spirit of Christ as witnessed in the Gospels better than our more conservative siblings, especially when it comes to the issue of religious salvation.
