I don't believe in religion even though I grew up with different tastes of evangelical fervor and views. I always wanted to believe and when I had a chance to study it in a formal way I took it. As a pre-teen when we moved to a building in Brooklyn in which our neighbors were Evangelical and my sister not far was also of the same evangelical sect even though you would never guess it by its name.
My neighbors (not my sister, my family never saw me accomplishing anything, I felt resentment from all of them. Maybe it was the age difference I was so much younger and maybe it was something else they saw which I didn't at the time or until I was a grown man having lost my virginity to a woman and experienced sex as I was taught by a brother).
Well, my neighbors saw things in me that push them to make an opportunity available by having me work to pay for my studies because I was a kid with no income and my mom had her hands full with sending me to school.
I understand anyone who does not believe in anything. I don't believe in a lot of things and definitely anything that is being said in the old religions or the now religions.
If I was going to believe, the following is what I would believe:
Salvation is closely related to the idea of redemption – a saving from the state or circumstance that destroys the value of human existence. God, as the universal spirit and Creator of the universe, is the source of all salvation for humankind, provided we honor Him by observing His precepts. In other words, redemption or salvation depends on the individual. According to Judaism, salvation cannot be obtained through anyone else, or in believing in any outside power.
