For example, consider the following kinds of questions: 1. What are the means to salvation? 2. Is there any need for any kind of salvation? 3. If so, what do we need --- to be saved: 4. From original sin --- from some "event" long ago? 5. From "The Domination System" --- globally today? 6. From specific individual domineering people now? 7. From in-effective means to salvation? 8. From those in control of the effective means? 9. From whoever knows the most effective means? 10. From how people tell who has been saved? 11. From how people tell who has NOT been saved? 12. From those saved who are so "superior/better"? 13. From those who ask the wrong ultimate questions? 14. From those who answer wrong ultimate questions? 15. Who is asking the RIGHT ultimate questions? 16. Who is answering the RIGHT ultimate questions? 17. Are we saved "in-spite-of" what we: believe, do, like, hate, reject, say, think, desire, etc? 18. Are we saved "because-of" what we: believe, do, like, hate, reject, say, think, desire, etc? 19. Is salvation a "reward", an "unmerited-gift" or a "conditional-gift", or something different? 20. Are we saved because we respond properly to our fear of punishments to be meted out to those who do not meet the conditions for their salvation, or because we cooperate with "different" people who ask/answer different kinds of questions than those questions that we prefer to ask? 21. Is salvation enjoyed by people who "hang-on-and- control" or by people who "let-go-and-let-God?" 22. Is there no need for salvation --- as many Muslims believe? 23. Must we be saved --- as many Christians believe? 24. Can we be saved by earning salvation-points by "saving" people who do not know that they must be saved? 25. Is salvation an exclusive thing found/received in contentious isolation and/or relationships --- or is salvation found and enjoyed within cooperative communities and integrative relationships? 26. Is salvation achieved by faithfully serving "The Domination System" which represses asking these kinds of questions and represses responses to these kinds of questions? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
