    Salvation? No. Enlightenment? Yes.

    Much better.

    Salvation reminds me of taking scrap metal to the center for recycling.

    The Jewish faith does not have the concept of 'salvation'. Since there not the 'stain of original sin' in Judaism, there is nothing to be saved from. Each person is judged according to their actions, and bears the responsibility for their own self.

    Most religions have a concept of salvation.

    For instance in Hinduism, you are saved through your actions. You are born, you die, you are born again, you die and the cycle repeats itself until you learn your lessons. Then you achieve salvation and will never be reborn again.

    the belief in a superior power that can't be explained by the human mind anytime soon does not have anything called "salvation" soteriology is a uniquely traditional concept steeped in doctrine.

    If there is a loving God, we won't need to be saved from his creation.
