Christian concepts of salvation

Alternate interpretations
of Matthew 25:34-45

Sponsored link.


Various passages in the Bible teach a diversity of beliefs concerning what one must do and believe to be saved -- i.e. to be born again and thus qualify to spend eternity in Heaven.

Matthew 25:34-45 contains the "sheep and goats" passage that discusses Jesus' judgment of "all nations." It is a major stumbling block for those who believe that salvation is based solely or mainly on faith.

Topics covered in this section:

bulletText of the passage; description of the problem
 
bulletAlternate explanations derived from religious texts
