The word, salvific, is not used much anymore, yet it is a word that was used in eons passed when the secular population was more concerned with the condition of their souls, than the condition of their latest tattoo upon their body. The word itself was suggested by Ralph Waldo Emerson in his Concord Hymn. Enjoy!
