Christian Theologies of Salvation

This chapter addresses the theology of Origen. Though Origen lived through a period with little to no doctrinal consensus, he produced a rather organized and consistent theology (for his time) in the face of strong opposition from the Gnostics. This chapter explains that Origen’s beliefs regarding salvation lie in the outcome of the believer’s fight in the struggle to choose virtue or vice once the divine Word has been introduced to the soul.
