I think you'd better ask religious people. You won't find many of those here.
If any here cannot see that the answer should be yes, then they are not worthy thinkers.
The morals given by any theology or philosophy should be the most important thing of each of those respectively.
Both disciplines are created to show the best rules, laws and moral that we are to live by.
The study and debating of soteriology (salvation) has been going on for ages, with continued divided theologies and interpretations. My spiritual journey and crises, now and again, change and evolve in what seems to be a natural progression, speaking personally,
At this point in time, I am contemplating how I may be of service and light to humanity, with or without the promise of salvation (whatever that is).
I too, some time ago now, contemplated on how I might be of service in improving what I saw in humanity.
After looking at the garbage people were debating in theology and philosophy, mostly issues that led nowhere, I decided that the best way to serve was to move the conversation to the root purpose of religions, theologies and philosophies, morality.
All religions, theologies and philosophies basically try to show the best rules and laws to live life by. These are what people follow and not some imaginary guy in the sky who will hurt us if we do not do things his way.
After a bit you will see that most of what I do pertains to morals.
We can never determine if there is a God, unless he shows his absentee face, so why waste time on that when it is the morality being sold that is important.
