"From what are people being saved?
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
The Bible, Romans 10:9
Not from visible warfare or barbarians but something
far greater: from their own sins, a work that had never
been possible to anyone before."
-John Chrysostom, Homilies on the Gospel of St. Matthew, 4.7
