ˈseɪvjəɪz(ə)m

noun  Astrosoteriology

a system of salvation based on the notion that a saviour can bring about salvation such as in Christian soteriology as contrasted with Astronist soteriology which denies that any one person or event can bring about salvation, instead focusing on the concept of transcension as a process of salvation with interdependent subprocesses to bring about redemption.

ORIGINS AND ETYMOLOGY

Astro-English: in Astronese, the noun savourism is based on the concept of salvation or the figure of the saviour and is conjoined with the suffix -ism to denote a belief, meaning a soteriological system that asserts that an individual, called the Saviour, is able to bring about salvation; this differs from the Astrosoteriology which asserts that no one person or being is able to bring about salvation or redemption.
