Summary of Salvation History

Salvation history is repeating itself through cycles composed of four typical phases based respectively on peace, sin, judgment and return to peace joining the phase of peace of the next cycle. These phases are quite natural because creation first implies peace, which is then followed by transgression (sin) leading to suffering (judgment) and therefore implicating salvation (return to peace).
