Christ In You, Salvation

Just as Unity views resurrection as an ongoing process, it also sees salvation as a process, rather than a state of "having it made." Unity does not use the word salvation much, mainly because it carries a connotation that is not compatible with metaphysical thinking. But in another sense, salvation is a valid concern of metaphysical Christianity. The old statement that "Jesus saves" is correct on the metaphysical level. "Jesus saves us from hell" is also correct. Jesus is the living symbol of awakened spiritual awareness. The words of Jesus constitute what we call Truth. Hell is the biblical symbol for useless, unnecessary suffering. Spiritual awareness (Jesus) guides us into Truth, and following the Truth saves us from repeated useless, unnecessary suffering (hell).
