the study of the mechanisms by which an individual is saved

Also known as the study of salvation, soteriology encompasses such issues as:

  • Is salvation a free will choice of the person or strictly of God?
  • Is salvation fundamentally a legal (substitutionary atonement) metaphor or appeasement (satsifaction theory) "thing"?
  • Why does God allow humans to be put in a situation where "saving" was needed?
