Christians generally believe that faith in Jesus is the only way to achieve salvation and to enter into heaven, and that salvation is a gift given by the grace of God.
The central belief of Christianity is that by faith in the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus, individuals are saved from death—both spiritual and physical—by redemption from their sins (i.e., faults, misdeeds, disobedience, rebellion against God).
During the Crusades, Christian atrocities against Jews in German and Hungarian towns, later also in those of France and England, and in the massacres of non-combatants in Palestine and Syria initiated a tradition of Christian anti-Semitism, which was further bolstered by the blood libel cult, and continued into the 1500s by the Spanish Inquisition.

Christian Existential Humanism (CEH) is a reconstructivist social and political philosophy combining Christian humanism and Christian existentialism.
CEH consists of three elements: A strong sense of faith, based in a personal relationship with God through Christ; a celebration of individuality and the unique talents of each person; and an ethic of service to humanity as a whole.
CEH is a direct descendant of the traditional African-American church experience, which has always had a place for individual talent as expressed through the arts and humanities, and for faith as expressed through service to the community at large.

One unmistakable virtue of a humanistic ethic is its stress on the dignity and value of human beings, and in Kurtz's case individual human beings.

The son of a Puritanical Lutheran cleric, he has long since renounced his childhood faith and turned instead toward something that might be described as existential humanism.
Bergman is, however, a profoundly religious artist, by which I mean that he is deeply concerned, first and foremost, with the struggles of the human condition in light of the presence—or, in his case, the absence—of God.
Christian film viewers should wrestle with the film's final image, which, as even Bergman acknowledged, can be read as evidence of God's active presence in our fallen world.
