Abstract

Human religions and the saving knowledge of God
It has become an accepted practice to speak of the relationship of Christianity to other religions in terms of exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism. These categories are actually not very helpful. The emphasis must not be on the question of excluding or including people from salvation but rather on a saving knowledge of God. Human religions have a limited or distorted knowledge of the supreme Reality. It is only through self-revelation of God that a true saving knowledge of the ultimate Reality can be attained. This happens through the self-revelation of God in Scripture and especially in the incarnation and saving acts of God in Christ and through the enlightening work of the Holy Spirit.
