The Bible teaches us that all men are sinners, and utterly unable to save themselves (Romans 3:23). Furthermore, the penalty for sin is eternal death and punishment (Romans 6:23). Yet God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, Who became a man and died to pay the penalty for our sins (Romans 5:8). Jesus rose from the dead the third day and now abides in heaven. God calls all men to confess their sins, repent and believe on Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross (Romans 10:9,10).

Of course these are

Of course these are religious fairy tales that have nothing to do with spirituality, they are complete distortion of the essence of the true messages of Jesus that are the opposite of threats and intimidations. Spirituality has nothing to do with fear of punishment and cultivation of artificial guilt because acting from such a fear and guilt is just acting out of give-and-take and not from true conviction and purity of soul.

I have quoted the Bible and nothing else. The Bible contains the teachings of Jesus. He spoke of salvation and eternal life and of the judgement for sinners and evil doers. There are no fairy tales in the Bible. I feel you do not want to follow any rules.

Salvation from what?

The bible does not contain the teachings of Jesus but something that is presented as the teachings of Jesus. I feel you want to follow rules in order to avoid any responsibility.

Why to be saved? what's the exact meaning of to be saved? Saved from what?

be saved

It is about being saved from sin. It is very clear in my post. To be saved from sin, one has to confess his/her sins and to accept Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and saviour, as he died for everyone's sins and to give eternal life to each one. I wish I could present a big sermon here instead of quotes, but the space is limited. And for your quotes which support the opposite, I care a damn, as I have the truth with me.
