It is legitimate to ask the question, 'What exactly are we saved from?' The intent of this thread is to answer that question..
Thank you. It answers that question very clearly. Unfortunately nothing is clear enough for those who refuse to see the truth.

It needs not to be confusing unless you start listening to a long winded rambling explanations (that frankly would confuse Dr. Seuss) by trying to rephrase what Jesus said oh so plainly.
John 15:6
If you do not remain in me,
you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.
Revelation 16:15
“Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

Who have made their minds made up and will not let the scripture speak for itself

Does the scripture say that the Savior saves us FROM our SINS or does the scripture say that the Savior saves us FROM ETERNAL HELL ?

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will SAVE his people FROM their SINS" Matthew 1:21

From SIN or ETERNAL HELL ?

Can it actually get any clear in the text then this that even a blind man on a galloping horse can see it ?.

We know that when the scripture speaks of sin, it speaks of missing the mark, so Jesus Christ came to save us from missing the mark by giving us the ability to hit it. How hard is this to comprehend and accept ?.

Why can you not see this Finn Jarber and provide a scripture so glaringly obvious as this to what we are actually are saved from,without adding or taking away from the text, instead of making cheap shot at those who cannot accept what the scripture does not say ?.

You're welcome Finn. It is unfortunate that so many do refuse to be objective and open their eyes to the truth.

Yes, the verses in the OP makes it crystal clear. I am sorry the truth is hidden from you.

Not one verse of scripture quoted in the OP states we are saved from eternal hell, the truth is not hidden it's been added to.

I won't disrupt Mike's thread repeating things to you. He said this thread is intended for those who will listen, and you have already proven that you are either blinded from the truth, or simply refuse to see it.
