Catholic Christians can respond that
they have been saved
the first meaning
of "saved" and "salvation"
in scripture--Jesus Christ, Savior, by whose act of salvation we
are objectively saved--He died, rose from the dead, saved them
2 Corinthians 5:17
So whoever is in Christ is
a new creation
The Catholic Christian answers this question in three stages
or levels corresponding to the three meanings the words
"saved" and "salvation" have in the Bible.
