Redeemed, justified, sanctified, saved: These are terms that Christians throw around and assume that everyone knows what they are talking about. If they ask someone, "Are you saved?" The person may say, "Saved? Saved from what?"
Saved has been defined as "to deliver or rescue." The word "saved" is used in various ways: rescue from injury or peril, rescue from perishing such as drowning, or deliver one who is in danger of destruction by fire. All these meet the definition above.
