What is Redemption?

 

The term redemption has several meanings but in Christianity, it refers to being saved from sin and evil. Christians believe that through Jesus' death on the cross they can be restored to a full relationship with God and are delivered from sin.

So, redemption is an important part of salvation, which, of course, is central to the Christian faith: it's the reason Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected. All a person has to do to receive redemption is to recognise their sins, repent and redemption is theirs for the taking.

You can read about one Christian's experience of repentance and redemption here.
